I’m trying to imagine that average sound made by Hornets fans after Malik Monk had yet another good game in direct defiance of Steve Clifford. There’s probably a lot of exasperated sigh in there, some grumbling, sarcastic hand clapping, some head-shaking which makes a slight whooshing noise, “ugh”, “damn”, “choke on my chode Clifford” is what I said but I don’t count. Plus a whole bunch more.
I’m just going to go out and say that the Hornets would’ve made the playoffs if Monk had been properly utilized the entire year. It’s a totally wrong and incorrect thing to say, but I want to say it anyway. No one can really prove me wrong on this one, and would they even want to? I don’t think anyone will think even one iota about this Hornets season once it’s over.
The only way for me to retain any memories of it is if Mangok Mathiang scores 20 in the season finale. Or Monk scores 50. Otherwise, I don’t have the space in my brain to keep this miserable trainwreck around.
