The New Orleans Hornets have the first pick of the 2012 NBA Draft and the 10th pick as well. The first game they played was in Mexico against the Orlando Magic. The first round pick Anthony Davis had 8 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 blocks. 10th round pick Austin Rivers led the team with 10 points.
The Hornets are doing good. They have their team working as one and everyone is contributing. Davis is doing what he’s known for; shot blocking and dunking. In fact, he had a dunk on that game against the Magic. Also, he had experience playing with the pros in the 2012 Olympics in London.
As for defense, the Hornets HAVE to improve. They’re giving up too many passes in the paint and allowing the other team to score easily in the paint. Either than that, their defense is just fine.
In my concerns, I think that the hornets won’t make it to the Playoffs this year. i think that they just need more experience with each other, and with other teams. But when they do get used to the league, then will certainly make it to the playoffs.
