Should Chris Paul Play Again This Season?
Over the last few weeks, it’s become increasingly apparent that CP will likely be “physically capable” of playing by the end of the season. He resumed limited practice on March 12th, and knowing his injury recovery history, the speedy comeback isn’t too surprising.

So we know he can and almost certainly will play, but is it the right decision?

For one, the playoffs are a pipe dream. The Hornets are most certainly a playoff team with Paul; they were 25-21 when he went down, and those were the days when Buckets was still Lil and David West was anything but an X-factor.

An Ode to Don Nelson
Hornets aren’t as good as they have been the last two years and Dallas I mean Oakland I mean Golden State I mean fuck (which team are we again), well, my team has gotta take advantage of these fools without CP3; it’s our big chance to run a team ragged and let our talent lag get lost in the run and gun style we run without their ability to sub, you know, with all their injuries–wait, what, our injuries, our short bench? Don’t worry about it.

Tip. We win. That Ju-kid steals it and quick foul, take it out of bounds and then they score? That was quick. We got our own tricks, ha ha. We’ll just let Anthony Tolliver score the first 14 of our 18 points. D-Leaguer? Not anymore. Won’t see him coming. Okafor two quick fouls. Sucker! Oh wait, we don’t have any bigs either. No answer to David West inside or out, why is he running and working hard on defense? It’s a waste of time. We’re running up and down, though; what more could you want…
