Caught in mediocrity

The Charlotte Hornets are in the most thankless situation in which you can be in the NBA. They are not good enough to reach the playoffs and not bad enough to get a top draft pick. They are caught somewhere inbetween where their season is not rewarded and it's hard to look to the future with optimism.

To destroy all hope right from the start: This doesn't change. At least not this season. The roster simply lacks punch and talent. The starting five of the Hornets is solid and can hold its own, but onnce these players catch a breath it goes downhill fast. Even Tony Parker won't make a difference here.

Not everything is bad in Charlotte. Swapping Dwight Howard for Bismack Biyombo may seem like a step backwards, but it's no coincidence that Howard is constantly being shipped from team to team. For the Hornets this was a tough decision but if it improves the lockerroom atmosphere it was the right one. Biyombo plays full tilt whenever he steps on the floor. The same can not be said about Howard. Walker and Batum are both in the prime of their careers and capable of averaging for 20+ points a night.

The move from Tony Parker to the Hornets came as something of a surprise. Most experts expected the Frenchman to do the same as his Argentine friend Ginoboli: Spurs or retirement. Apparently, the 36-year-old point guard has not had enough yet, so he switched Conferences.

How much Parker can help the Hornets remains to be seen. Again and again, the four-time champion has been plagued by injuries in recent years, which severely limited his productivity on the court. But even a perfectly healthy Parker would not be able to compete for the starting job. Walker, the 28-year-old All-Star point guard, is by far the best player on the team.

Why Parker wanted to play for Charlotte, only he knows exactly. But two factors are likely to have played a role. For one thing Parker is good friends with small forward Nicolas Batum, whom he knows from his numerous national team appearances. Secondedly the Hornets now have a new head coach in James Borrego, who has been an assistant coach with the Spurs for 10 years and is therefore very familiar with Parker and his playing style.

After Walker and Batum, the Hornets squad is made up of a collection of 'might-someday-be-good', 'never-has-reached-his-potential' and 'why-is-he-even-in-the-league'. Not ideal conditions for trades to get better players. In addition, although Michael Jordan was the GOAT on the court, in the front office of the Hornets he has not done a convincing and that was 23 years ago.

Of course, the Hornets as a so-called small market team have a harder time to lure free agent superstars to their city than, let's say, the New York Knicks or Los Angeles Lakers. But how else should such a franchise improve, if not through trades and free agents?

Normally, with small market teams this happens through the draft. That's how the Hornets got Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson. They got them because they played horrible the years before and received high draft picks. Today's Hornets are not that bad (yet). Decide for yourself if that's good.
