  1. 1. Would you trade MKG in a fair deal for a better scoring option?

    • No, MKG is our guy
      7
    • No, give him some more time - he still could pan out
      2
    • Yes, but the deal has to be fair
      19
    • Yes, ship him out for anyone that can shoot a 3pt shot over .300

Il plays devils advocate: his on ball defense is legit. Stats won't show that. Ok I'm done. I wouldn't mind trading him.

MKG could be a nightmare with some direction in his life. If he had someone that would give him the real deal about his skills. A player like him needs to play the game like Gerald Wallace did. It was my favorite thing about him. He knew what kind of player he had to be to be valuable to his team. 

First of all, never take another jumpshot again. Everything he touches needs to go directly to the rim. There's no reason that a player as quick and agile as MKG should average less than 15 points a game. I have seen him do it a million times this year, likely in set plays, where he's able to take his man directly to the rim and draw fouls. That's where a player like him has to make his money. He's good at finishing close to the rim and has good touch on his layups. He could learn a lesson or two from how Kemba does it, who figured it out. It seems like the majority of his career has been spent trying to improve his jumpshooting when his jumpshooting was never going to be above league average. Become elite at the things you're already good at and you will have a role at the NBA level. 

MKG has the toolset of an elite slasher and he needs to play that way. When he gets his rare touches in our system right now, he needs to give himself the green light sometimes to take it hard to the paint and get to the line. Even if he doesn't score there, he'll have added value in stacking fouls on bigs.

One thing you guys aren't realizing, especially this guy ^^ is that his defense is crucial to our ability to limit the other teams best player. I hope you guys know that. I'm very happy we have him. This team wouldn't be 14-9 without him.

on that specific night - Lebron went for 44pts.. I am fully aware of MKG's defensive ability - my whole point is that it doesn't out-weigh his lack of offensive production..

If we can get something better in return, then obviously. But I would love to be able to get a better option without losing him. He would be a great 6th man defender off the bench

If we could swing for the fences and make an offer for Beal - centered around MKG - slide Batum to SF:

Kemba - Sessions
Beal - Belinelli
Batum - Lamb
Marvin - Frank
Zeller - Hibbert

OR What if we got Ibaka (you know Cho would love him) for MKG:

Kemba - Sessions
Belinelli - Lamb
Batum - Lamb
Ibaka - Frank
Zeller - Hibbert

He is who is his. Could he improve his shooting in the future? Sure seen it before, but I just don't see it in MKG. He had a terrible form dating back to HS and UK. It's not happening. It's as good as it'll get. As time past, it'll get better but it won't make him into a super star. He's JAG. 

Trade him while you can. When he's still young and some stupid teams out there think they can fix his shooting. He plays pretty good defense but he ain't helping us beat the Cavs. 

Kemba is the only can't touch player on this team.

The issue with trading him is that if he sucks as bad as so many people on here seem to think we won't be able to get anything for him.

At this point in his career he needs to be our Tony Allen. Bring him off the bench to play lights out defense for 20-30 minutes a night while the starters rest. He may never develop beyond that but it is what he should be right now given his current skill set, it's a tough pill to swallow for the number 2 overall pick buy it is what it is. His contract is pretty reasonable given last offseasons spending spree so it's not like his 12 or so million a year is a terrible investment for a sixth man.

If he's your 6th or 7th man off the bench then yea. Good to keep. However, at this point of his career I think we seen enough to say he's not a great start for this team. Could be for another team but not this team.

Trade him? Probably not going to get back enough for him what we think he's worth. So I say no. 

However, if we did somehow blindly stumble into a legitimate scorer from the 2 or 3 positions, cough should have drafted Devin Booker cough, MKG would be fantastic coming of the bench and playing in small ball crunch time lineup. 

He needs to be our Iggy.
