10:12 JLin: We want to make the playoff this year, not just sneak in the 8th spot

  1. Watch JLin Charlotte Hornets Presser REPLAY
  2. Watch JLin One-On-One Interview Part 1
    – CHA Assistant Coach Stephen Silas was instrumental to develop JLin as a rookie in GSW
    – Coach Clifford loves the game & is such BB junkie watching films, (watched 8 full JLin games)
    – JLin: Kemba is dynamic, should’ve been an All-Star
    – JLin: said Jefferson is so smart (can shoot/pop or roll in PnR)
  3. Watch JLin One-On-One Interview Part 2
    – Nicholas Batum will be really good for us, can play multiple positions. The way he plays is how everyone should play: unselfish, team basketball
    – Coach Clifford’s team is Top 5-8 Defensive Team. He’s going to make me much better defender. My ability to be a really good weak side/help defender will fit well
