Hood is coming off as lazy to me... He skips a workout then this happens (4 times)

I could live with going offense in the draft. Our problem is offense, not defense. I'm not like WOW!! where I wanna draft and sign very single defensive players bc Clifford is a "Defensive" minded coach.

When a kid continuously proves he can't finish workouts, I don't give a damn how good he is on offense or defense, I don't want him. I'm sure his teammates would love him taking shots away from the other guys that actually work hard in practice. Pass.

6'4 point guard with great passing and ball handling skills. Quick first step on offense, would be a great backup for Kemba I think.


Upgrade over Kemba in a year or two.

I'm not talking about Hood!!!!!!!!!!!

McD and Hairston. Omg


But, my bad. I think I quoted the wrong post.

Talking about this post by Teeray:
"Ford had us drafting McDermott and PJ in the 1st.

We would have two amazing shooters at least, might not be able to guard anyone, but we could jack up some threes.

Seriously though, that wouldn't be the worst first round"

No I want a player who does more then 1 thing.

We need a offensive wing player. But we need 1 who just doesn't shoot either he helps Kemba with creating for others. Or he can create his own shot so Kemba isn't the only player who can do that. Or they have potential to play good defense.
I just want more then a 1 trick player who will end up coming off the bench a lot in their career.

And again more and more I don't think we're using one pick on getting a veteran. Who can help right away.

PJ can play defense as well.. Well at least he did at UNC

PJ has the ability to possibly one day be a decent defender.  But he did not play very good defense consistently at UNC.  And I am a UNC fan.  But the reason he had to play the 4 was because he was not defending the perimeter well.

 

In particular he struggled against the pick and roll, and getting through screens.  Plus, he had a tendency to go brain dead off the ball.

 

On the ball he was okay when he was locked in but still had trouble containing dribble penetration at times

A lot of the more recent mocks have Charlotte taking Lavine at 9.

Yeah, I am not to high on Hood, and his stock seems to be dropping.  Didn't have a great combine either.

 

Not surprised. He doesn't pass the eye test, either. Too stiff. Isn't fluid enough.
