The ballhandling the defense the versatility the work ethic and the athletic ability. He's still very young and all he needs is a jumper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm still fully behind the MKG project.

without any kind of a jump shot, teams will double off of him religiously.  He has to be able to hit the open shot.  He cant.  Its not his fault.  its just not in his skill set.  You have to be able to do more then defend to be successful in this league.

I like MKG, I really really do. His defense and slashing is wonderful, and he is a genuine nice high character dude. However, I'm very torn on what I want to happen to him from a basketball perspective. I don't want to be like Sacramento and give up on a player that has a chance to be special. But he needs a serviceable 15-25 foot jump shot to be a great player in this league. I'm not giving up on him yet, he at least deserves to ride out his rookie deal before we let him go imo.

He was going to need about 5 years when we drafted him. Let's see where he is by end of rookie contract.

In my opinion he needs to blow up his entire shooting motion and start from scratch

This kid is the truth don't let 1 skill set detour you from this talented young player. He will develop this skill and there will be no stopping him.

When he wasn't in the lineup, the teams energy, and defensive ability lacked tremendously.  I love MKG's game.  He is consistently improving and if it wasn't for his broken hand last year, his shot would've been vastly improved.

as you can see from that video, MKG is at his best on a break and/or slashing to the basket.  It also appears he makes more jumpers when hes off balance.  IMO MKG isnt being used correctly.  Charlottes has been spacing everyon eout to make room for Big Al, this allows defenders to double off MKG and force him to shoot jumpers.  They need to have MKG slashing to the basket when Big Al is in the paint etc.  Dont keep MKG out away from the basket, keep him near it and he will succeed.

It's a rough GIF but look at the progression he's made in his shot... He's still got a ways to go but he's got a quicker release on the jump shot
