    Peja is not a defender in this league and he'll never become one. He's a one dimensional player and scoring is all he knows to do. I think that the Hornets will be just fine with him scroing them 18-25 points a game. If he can make a few stops here and there and get some key rebounds then it's a bonus.

    Just because one year he was in the MVP running doesn't mean he was overhyped. People definitly ajusted to his style of game but he hasn't really been healthy for the last couple of seasons so he couldn't fufill as his abilities. I think he'll have a good season in New Orleans/Oklohoma this year.

    Peja is a great shooter and is complementary with most teams. However, his lack of defense does not the Hornets in that respect. He is a liability and the Hornets need to correct that issue soon. They can do that by signing someone who has the ability to closeout and defend the perimeter.
