The Starting Five

The Hornets have assembled a formidable starting five for the ’07-’08 campaign; what the bench lacks the starters more than make up for. In fact, this may be the best starting squad the Hornets have put out in their two decade history, edging out the potent Baron-Wesley-Mash-P.J.-Magloire five (which featured three all-stars). Read up on your starters here.

  1. You guys should put James Posey as the starting Shooting Guard instead of Morris Peterson. I like Mo Pete but think about it when he even has wide open three’s he misses. But James Posey can shoot it in someone’s face. If you like my idea please let it shine to all of New Orleans. Mo Pete can’t win us a title but James Posey can. James Posey is the best player on the Hornets next to Chris Paul, Tyson Chandler and David West.
