The Host of the Habershow and member of Meadowlark Media joined Kyle Bailey today on the Clubhouse as he gave his thoughts on the Hornets through 29 games, and what he thinks they need to do to improve.

Tom started by looking at the Hornets as a whole as he said they are an extremely dynamic offense and one of the best but are awful on the defensive end and he thinks the Hornets can’t continue to win games like they have been and have to find some help on the wing and down low before the deadline.

Tom then looked at the play of LaMelo Ball who is nearly midway through his second season as Tom told Kyle:

“LaMelo Ball is already a superstar in this league as he is only 20 and is already becoming one of the premier point guards in the NBA.”

When it comes to potential moves the Hornets can make at the deadline Tom is really intrigued with the idea of the Hornets getting Pacers big man Myles Turner to help shore up some of the defensive issues and he thinks a deal that could work if you don’t get picks involved in Charlotte giving up Mason Plumlee, PJ Washington, and rookie James Bouknight so they can get Myles Turner into the fold, but Tom did point out that a lot of teams will be gunning for Turner.
