I know we lost Al and the asshole but I’m looking at this game and we still have a lot of nice basketball players

1 Quarter Overreaction:
- Hayward looks 100% better than last season. Much quicker, and being aggressive to the rim.
- Tatum (outside of his first shot) has been aggressive to the rim, and is putting up 3s instead of the headfake-dribble-to-long-2 thing he did all the time last year.

Good to see Hayward looking more like his old self. Brown looks bigger to me. Maybe put on some muscle during the offseason. Looks stronger going to the hoop.

Wow Jaylen without the flattop leading the break. I had to double check it was him both for the handle and the 'do. Nicely done and then finishes through contact at the rim.

H1 hot takes.

Positives:
Gordon and Tatum look very good offensively.

Negatives:
Interior defense as bad as advertised.

The Hornets will be at the top of the lottery and not one of the worst teams. They have a lot of professional basketball players.

Tatum looks good. The last 2 mins of the half though was definitely rough. Kanter got lost on that last play.

Another hot take: Poirier may be a Euro stiff. Defensively, he wasn't at all impressive.

Seems about as expected so far. Hayward is healthier, Tatum is a stud, Edwards and Williams aren't in over their heads, and center is a big blank spot.

Somebody might want to cover P.J. Washington, who's 6 for 6 at the half.

Wow, that was a tough stretch there. A time out would have been nice to simply reorganize. C's went into jack a three offense and the hornets kept scoring. Ouch.
