Totally agree, CP3 is a 22\12\5 player, which Wall will probably never be.

Wall is overhyped it's not even funny. He wasn't even the best in college this year.

Lopez + Turner > Wall

Turner is more NBA ready than Wall; apparently Turner is bigger Brandon Roy on crack

I love how people are so quick to write off CP because he was hurt this year, If i was the hornets hell no would I trade him, do we all forget he was a very valid MVP candidate a couple years ago? The dude is the #1 PG in my eyes still.

Draft Demarcus Cousins and try and package West and Okafur together for a couple capable perimeter players. Its a 70% chance of failing, but the franchise is at a 90% chance of fail path right now.

paul for bynum. works for both teams as long as the hornets want a injury prone center.

I mean there is a slim chance in hades but we're being practical here supposedly.

There's a chance Wall won't be as good as Collison.....the Hornets are set at the PG position so my thinking is only a moron would risk that to draft an uncertainty

I'd go out on a limb and draft Turner#1.

I'd trade the pick for two lesser picks.

I'd draft Favors or Cousins.

But one thing I'd never ever ever ever EVER do is trade away arguably the league's best PG and ball hawk for a kid that just got toasted by UWV's backup point guard.

Stats, prestigue, and all of that aside CP3 is one of the league's best competitors PERIOD...the kid has the heart of a lion and plays like he's the tallest PG in the league not barely 6 feet.

Default Re: If the Hornets get #1 pick . . .

Trade #1 pick for something a bit later (#5 overall maybe?). With that later pick, draft Turner. There are a few desperate teams out there that would do anything to get John Wall. NOH may be able to land Lopez along with some cash considerations (or just Lopez alone even) for #1 overall pick. After that try to trade Okafor and West for Bosh.

CP3
Turner
Posey
Bosh
Lopez

3 potential issues with this:
-Posey might be a couple years away from retiring but who cares who their 5th player is at SF?
-Would Turner be around at #5 overall pick? It depends somewhat on what the draft order is.
-Would the Raptors be willing to take West's and Okarfor's contracts?
