Hornets at a glance
It's all clear now: Byron Scott got himself fired on purpose so he could take on a hopeless situation and prove to the world it was he, not JKidd, who turned the Nets around.
An undersized roster, a switch to the tougher conference, a disgruntled, oft-injured All-Star (Baron Davis): hey, if Scott squeezes 30 wins out of this bunch, then he is a coaching mastermind.
|The starters: If Baron Davis is happy, everyone else will be. Too bad he never is.|
|PF||P.J. Brown||35-year-old averaged 8.6 rpg in 2003-04||7|
|SF||George Lynch||Vet takes Mash's spot in different direction||6|
|C||Jamaal Magloire||Might be harder to make the All-Star team this year||7|
|SG||David Wesley||Prep hotshot J.R. Smith makes old man feel his age||6|
|PG||Baron Davis||Aspiring movie mogul needs more quality shots||8|
|BENCH||Vet Darrell Armstrong can run Scott's up-tempo offense. The system could make second-year pro David West another Richard Jefferson.||5|
