    You mean the super quartet, don't you.

    Ha! Good point. To be honest, Battier is the only reason the prospect of the Heat being the best from the East year in and year out isn't horribly depressing to me.

    We think alike. Scary thought, isn't it.

    Anyone know if Lance Thomas made the Hornets roster?

    He is still listed on their website but out of 17 players. They may waive a few before Monday's game.

    That's because that was the Bobcats page. http://www.nba.com/hornets/roster/

    The Hornets Roster lists 16 players after the signing of F Gustavo Ayon (Mex) from the Spanish League. New Orleans is definitely forward heavy, and I have a hard time seeing how Thomas will break into the roster after just two preseason games....he played 8 minutes last game and scored 0 points. The presence of Dajuan Summers is going to hurt Lance -- Summers is a 6-8 SF/PF who can do a lot of the same things as Lance and is a more dangerous scorer.

    I hope I can eat my words.

    I read on some Hornets message board that Summers injury was worse than expected and he may be out 4-6 weeks. If true, that should help Thomas.

    Hornets cut someone else today and the roster is down to 15 which is the max. Only 13 can dress and with a few injuries and a suspension Lance should be able to call himself and NBA player for at least a few days.

    LT has officially made the Hornets roster. The word is all around Twitter.

    Congrats to LT! What an improvement in 2 years! Seeing him back then, never would have thought he'd be
    an NBA player. But, hey, Shavlik pulled it off too. As for the Bulls, it's hard to say. Hamilton's not known as a
    great defensive player, but he's still a pretty good shooter. Anyone who saw the series last year could see
    that lack of scoring from the 2 spot was a major problem for the Bulls. If Hamilton can give them 15 or so a game,
    that might be enough to make the difference, if Wade doesn't drop 35 on him at the other end. We'll see what
    happens in the playoffs. Here's hoping for Carlos and Luol.

    Didn't think he had a chance to do this - hope he can stick. So do we have 16 ex-Dukies on NBA rosters now?

    Thanks for the list! Most we've ever had and if Singler does come home for some reason, it could be 17 this year. I think someone earlier thought 17 was the record for any school - would be good to see a national news organization point this out!

    The date is the "last Duke year." -- sage

    If you want to make the NBA, play for Duke first

    Good for Duke recruiting to have so many players learn their craft at Duke and make the NBA later. I too though Thomas was not going to make the NBA. He must hae continued to work very hard and certainly his defense must have helped him.

    1st Dukie taking the floor today as Shane just subbed in for the heat.

    By my count we've got Luol, Boozer, JJ and Duhon left to play today. Looking forward to both Bulls/Lakers and Magic/Thunder.
