Come back Hipster Doofus.

I commented on a tweet yesterday about Arinze Onawaku.

TOP 5 FUN NAMES TO CHEER (I count Charlotte)

They're quite excited about Marvin Bagley and Harry Giles coming off the bench together. Apparently they have a new nickname:

Peja was one of, if not my favourite non-Hornets player at the time (I always traded for him on 2k) so when we picked him up I was super stoked.

He was the missing link to put us to the next level. It's a common theme but he was legit hurt.

Also **** James Posey

Huge omission from the list is Marcus Thornton of former Pels/king's palyers.

In the same season while CP3 was injured
Collison set the franchise assist in a game record with 22?
Same season Thornton went HAM and scored 51? Or 53
Both as ******* rookies if I'm not mistaken.
I'm very mad now

Oh there's heaps more. Bigfooty's 'upgrade' only lets you include 10 images now, so yeah.

Bobby Jackson, Bonzi Wells, Tyreke, Vasquez, Songalia, Belli... the list goes on.

I remember those games, they were on ESPN (which was rare back then). Collison and Thornton had a really good string of games

With everything that's happening can we all just agree that we're glad that it's Magic and Palinka that Demps is dealing with and not Kupchack?

If we could pare that down to just Magic we're dealing with then I would become somewhat optimistic.

The man still thinks Byron Scott is a great coach.

But you know, Dell.... The man who traded CP3 for Odom, Dragic and Scola.
I mean it absolutely could have ended up worse with people who didn't want to be there?
