Byron Scott is Unimpressed With Hornets

Coach Scott is questioning his team’s mental toughness: “That was probably the worst half I’ve seen us play in a long time,’ Hornets Coach Byron Scott said, after his team’s preseason record fell to 2-5 with one preseason game remaining tonight against the Clippers. ‘Mentally I think we are a fragile team. We’re mentally weak. We can’t be that weak-minded. Chris and David are probably our two toughest-minded players, but that’s no excuse for the way we played.”’

    I thought Posey and his ring meant instant mental toughness? Was Chandler tougher than Okafor?

    “Chris and David are probably our two toughest-minded players, but that’s no excuse for the way we played” – did he really connect those two sentences?!?! brilliant. so did he mean to say “if CP3 and DWest are the two toughest cats on your team, that’s a real bunch of pussies”…

    i’m not disputing CP3′s toughness, it just seems a strange pair of statements. i don’t wanna be punched in the balls – he said it, not me.

    The Hornets are unimpressed with Byron Scott.

    LOL at SAB. Somewhere, Julius Hodge crossed his legs when he read your comment.

    Ugh, the annual story for the Hornets.

    God: Please get Chris Paul some help ASAP! Thanks.
    P.S.- A new coach would be nice too.

    God, please answer TADOne’s prayers.

    P.S.-A nice J for Juju would be nice too.

    Scott to me seems like other ‘tough-minded’ coaches (Karl, LBrown, Skiles…) who get young teams to focus for a year or two before the team gets tired of them. Trading/not trading/then trading Chandler & paying too much for Posey didn’t help either.

    Statements like these are usually made by coaches who are about to get fired.

    Agree SAB, kinda wierd.

  • Yesse

    Should not have traded Tyson.

    I feel like the Hornets are going to be the new Timberwolves (KG era). A team with a player too good to have the team be bad, but without him they are arguably the worst team in the NBA…

    Coach Scott’s comment are raw, dang.
