Why you leave off shooting %'s and the year differences? 

 

Kemba is a nice PG but he isn't on Lillards level. 

 

becus i was on my phone and cudnt bring up full stats...

 

 

Lillard .427 FG% - .381 3pt% - 0.8 steals - 2.7 turnovers

Kemba .398 FG% - .322 3pt% - 1.4 steals - 2.2 turnovers

 

you guys are making it out like Kemba is a child compared to Lillard. They are pretty close- but the edge def goes to Lillard

Kemba is a really nice PG, hence even I who rarely if ever puts on homer glasses, am guilty of doing so in this instance. 

 

Kemba is def a tier 2 PG right below the elites. And hell maybe one day can become elite. It was clear as day Lillard was a tier 1 PG / player in this league i.e size, athleticism, skill, etc.

So nobody gives this guy as much heat as I get because he said what I've been saying for a while because?


There's no way we could have gotten both, we've already been over this.

 There's also no way we should be stuck with the talent we have after all the years of top picks. Pretty sure we could have pulled that off somehow.

If we trade futures, maybe...

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Here's some examples:

 

- 1995: The Warriors drafted Joe Smith over future HOF Kevin Garnett and the productive Rasheed Wallace.

- 1998, The Nuggets drafted Raef LaFrentz over future HOFs Dirk Nowitzki and Paul Pierce, and 8* time all star Vince Carter.

- 2003: The Pistons drafted Darko Milicic (#2) over Carmelo Anthony (#3), Chris Bosh (#4) and Dwyane Wade (#5).

- 2005: The Hawks drafted Marvin Williams over Deron Williams and Chris Paul 

- 2009: The T-Wolves drafted Jonny Flynn over Stephen Curry, DeMar DeRozan, and Brandon Jennings. Also, the Grizzlies drafted Hasheem Thabeet (#2) over James Harden (#3)

 

The problem with hindsight is that if you look at the above five drafts, the teams in question made errors in their selections. Two of them passed on future hall of fame players, and you might argue that the Pistons passed on hall of fame players as well. Granted the Pistons won the NBA championship the year they drafted Darko, but they could have won many more if they had drafted Melo or Wade. However, those teams made their decision to pass on those guys, for better or worse. 

As for us passing on Lillard the year after we drafted Kemba, it does look like a 'bad' decision based on Lillard's success. But if you draft a talented guy like Kemba to run the point guard position, you don't tend to see many teams draft a replacement point guard the following season. Now perhaps we could have drafted Lillard and used Kemba as a sixth man, or traded him for another first round draft pick. But the fact is that this team drafted its future PG in 2011, so 2012 the team decided to target its future SF with the high upside, but raw, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Now sure we might have been better off drafting Lillard, or even Bradley Beal, but potentially MKG could develop into a very good player. If he doesn't, then he should still have a good career as a role player.

I assumed this thread was about MKG when I saw the title.  I've been watching Barnes, and especially Lillard and Beal light it up in the playoffs and we have MKG who is the worst offensive wing in the NBA.  I didn't want him then, now it's even more apparent. 

 

Correct title, wrong player.
