2014 NBA Draft Talk

It's never too early to start looking toward the future. Especially when it is a talented and loaded draft class.

 

Everywhere I looked, majority has the 76ers landing the no1 pick. Dno why. They may or may not be as bad as us with the departure of Jrue Holiday, but that doesn't mean they're going to easily land it. The Lakers and Celtics may even luckily land the Andrew Wiggins Sweepstake next year.

 

Well, all along Cho has preached about the OKC model. OKC it is!!! Similarity? YES, just look.

 

****************************************************************************************************************************

2007 Seattle, No.2 Pick: Kevin Durant SF, Texas

2008 Seattle, No.4 Pick: Russell Westbrook PG, UCLA

2009 OKC (franchise moved/name change), No.3 Pick: James Harden SG, Arizona State

 

 

2012 Bobcats, No.2 Pick: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF, Kentucky

2013 Bobcats, No.4 Pick: Cody Zeller PF/C, Indiana

                                "projected pick"

2014 Hornets (rebrand Hornets/name change), No.3 Pick: Jabari Parker SF/PF

Andrew Wiggins is a sure lock at the no1 pick in 2014. I believe along with many others that Julius Randle will take the no2 spot over Parker. He has good size and strength to play the PF position. Randle also has great range. Reminds me a lot of a Zach Randolph.

 

Assuming that Parker doesn't stay for a second year at Duke (praying), grabbing Parker at no3 is a blessing. He's the foundation piece this franchise has been looking for since it's existence. Parker quickly becomes the face of the Charlotte Hornets, and help change it's identity (Bobcats). I'd like to think that Parker can play the "2", but many believes he may end up being a 4 more than a 3 with his thick frame. Parker have draws many comparison to Carmelo Anthony. The kid is humble, smart/high IQ of the game, and nonetheless a hard worker. We quickly learned that GM Rich Cho has a philosophy of taking hard working players from great programs: Kemba UCONN (Jim Calhoun), Kidd-Gilchrist UK (John Calipari), and Cody Indiana (Tom Crean). Jabari Parker (Duke/Coach K) is a perfect match of Cho's vision.

So 2 days after the draft we already throwing away this season and thinking about 2014 draft?

 

 

#BobcatsFans

 

 

It's time to put a end to this Bobcats way of thinking. We have to believe we will turn this franchise around. Lets talk about this season and not a draft that is another year away.SMH 

 

Lets talk about how Kemba beast Walker will be a allstar this year, and how MKG will become the NBA's top defender.

Yeah, if your not looking forward to next years draft you might want to check your pulse.

It could potentially be historic with the talent that could come out next year.

Add in the fact that if we hit our pick, that could potentially be the last lottery pick for us in a very long time.

Sorry if we don't get Wiggins it's not much to be excited about. Maybe we might get the #1 pick with us going back to the Hornets but I doubt it.

 

 

I'm excited about this year though.

There's 3-5 guys in this draft that you should be excited about, not just Wiggins. All of these guys have the potential to be franchise players. But, lets hope they don't pull a Shabazz.

I will be keeping up with CBB 24/7 this upcoming season, especially Duke, KU, and UK. I will CRY OF JOY or KILL someone in next year's lottery draft. Next year's NBA LOTTO DRAFT and the 2014 NBA DRAFT will have the highest ratings ever in the history of basketball.

This team has yet to get its franchise player so yes it all comes down to the 2014 draft...the whole reason for being as a struggling franchise.

You know what a franchise player is?

 

There are only 2 franchise players in the NBA today Lebron/Durant. Kobe/Duncan were franchise players but they are older now, so I want include them currently.

 

So you saying there will be 3-5 franchise players in that 1 draft? I give you Wiggins but the rest are not franchise players.

 

Franchise players currently.

1.Lebron

2.Durant

 

All Stars

1.Paul

2.Kobe

3.Rose(if healthy)

4.Parker

5.Dwight

6.Harden

7.Westbrook

8.Melo

9.Duncan

10.Love

Aside from Kobe and Duncan, you're pretty dumb if you dont think that CP3, Rose, Dwight, Harden, Parker, and Melo are franchise players.

 

I guess by that you also mean that only Brady and Manning are "franchise" qbs? Guys like Cam, Luck, Wilson, Ryan, Flacco, etc. are just "Pro Bowl" players right? You funny, but "YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE".

I have to say, I think Jabari Parker will be the best player in the draft by a fairly wide margin. Watching him play, it's almost like watching Carmelo Anthony play. He's just such a dominant SF. No, he isn't going to do all of the things LeBron can do, he's not a mix of all five positions like LeBron is, but he's a scorer from the SF position the likes of which has been seen in years.

 

However, I don't think Parker is going to have an incredible college season. He doesn't fit the system of Duke correctly. He's not going to have the ball in his hands a majority of the time. He's not going to get to go iso. He's not going to be able to take over the game from the wing, just because that isn't Duke's offense. It could drop him down just a few spots and put him in that 3-5 pick range.

 

Also, Julis Randle is a man. That dude is going to dominate college basketball in way that hasn't happened in years. We're talking Blake Griffin level of good.

No i'm watch you call a hardcore basketball fan.

 

You are dumb if you think CP3/Melo/GHarden/Rose are franchise players, I give you Dwight because he led a subpar team to the Finals. But those other guys haven't did anything to be considered franchise players.

 

CP3/Melo has yet to lead their team past the 2nd round and you call them a franchise player LMAO!

 

You gotta win a championship as the main guy before I call you a franchise player or you have to be an amazing talent like Durant. So yeah I guess we just disagree on what a franchise player is.

 

 

You saying all those guys are franchise players, you are basically putting them in the same category as Lebron. I'm sorry but Lebron/Durant are just on another level than those other players.

A franchise player is one who can go out and win you games, take over games, when he's not playing chances are you're going to lose, and you build your whole team around him. Thats exactly what those guys I mentioned earlier are. New Orleans crumbled with the departure of CP3 and Chicago could've easily won two Championships if Rose didnt tear his ACL last year and is a pussy to come back this season. Now, you are dumb if you think CP3/Melo/Harden/Rose aren't franchise players.

 

Skill wise, I'm not going to put those guys along with LBJ or Durant. But, LBJ couldn't win a ring in Cleveland and even loss in his first Finals vs. the Mavs with Wade and Bosh playing by his side. Durant couldn't carry his team pass Memphis with the departure of Harden and injury to Westbrook. Now, you tell me why they're considered "franchise players" compared to the others.

I can't understand why there are some people wanting us to try for mediocre. Sign some mid level free agents and hope we get to the 8th seed in the playoffs??? All the while winning enough to stay at the back of the lottery. Now I  don't care for losing but that's the formula in the NBA. Big time FA won't sign here or any other small market. Only chance is to luck out in the draft for a star and build around them. Then you have to hope that player will resign and not bolt.
