Expecting a larger leap from the Charlotte Hornets, that went just 36-46 final year using a mostly similar roster, would be possible if the group had addressed its biggest problem.
Dwight Howard will help, though he will also keep the exceptionally underrated Cody Zeller off the floor. Lest we forget, the Hornets‘ web rating improved by 10.4 points per 100 possessions when the incumbent center played in 2016-17. Malik Monk must provide a nice punch.
But what happens when Kemba Walker stays?
He had been the motor for Charlotte throughout the campaign, but he wore toward the center of the year.
Tasked with too many duties on the offensive end and constantly requested to create his own shots, Walker had the All-Star break to refresh and couldn’t really lead the charge back into the playoff picture during the year’s second half.
Perhaps the story would have lacked rather differently in case a capable backup point guard had graced the depth chart to mitigate the downfalls when Walker needed breathers.
Now, this job matches. The former Rookie of the Year is by no way a game-changing existence, and his inability to shoot could mess the next unit’s spacing. He is simply not a fantastic match from a personnel standpoint, and that’ll place the identical type of strain on Walker once again.
Expecting six extra victories is reasonable since the group develops and fits in the new developments. Seven is pushing against it.
