Who is going to star for the Hornets this season? The only players that have a guaranteed starting position are Eric Gordon and Anthony Davis, and we all know Gordon could get hurt at any time. After these two players the starting roles will be up for grabs the whole season, it all depends on who performs.
As of right now to start off the season I predict the Hornets starting 5 will look like this:
1. Grevis Vasquez
2. Eric Gordon
3. Al-Farouq Aminu
4. Anthony Davis
5. Robin Lopez
The first players off the bench should be Ryan Anderson and Austin Rivers. Rivers and Anderson will also battle Lopez and Vasquez for time in the starting rotation.
Luckily for Al-Farouq Aminu Ryan Anderson is not athletic enough to guard most NBA small forwards or I would have Anderson staring in his place.
The Hornets starting line-up will change frequently through out the year, expect Davis to start at center some games with Anderson at the forward spot.
The Hornets first pre-season game is only two days away. They take on the Magic on Sunday at 2:30 PM ET in Mexico City.
