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

    • No, MKG is our guy

    • No, give him some more time - he still could pan out
      2
    • Yes, but the deal has to be fair

    • Yes, ship him out for anyone that can shoot a 3pt shot over .300

I hope he gets more aggressive offensively and finds that range on his shot that he showed going into last season before the injury...  but i dont think he'll do either.  He may have a one or a couple of aberrations of seasons down the road stats-wise that would make people believe he is more than what he is, but he is what he is at this point.

I realized pretty early on that he went from another potential Gerald Wallace, to we'll be lucky if he turns into Stacey Augmon.

I'm so far from being an MKG homer but this is harsh

Stacey Augmon averaged 8 points and 2 rebounds a game for his career, it's safe to say MKG is already on his level if not better.

Don't think trading MKG is the answer. I'd prefer Cho look to trade for someone that could come off the bench and anchor the second unit's defense bc right now, we don't have a good two way or defensive minded wing coming off the bench.


MKG should be our defensive wing off the bench, let him come in and go all out crazy for 20-25 minutes every game and utilize him properly. It would require Marco being a full time starter and Batum actually playing decent defense again but I think it would be the best thing for the team. The only worry I have is the first unit rebounding without him but Cody would just need to step up in that department and we should be fine.

the worst thing to ever happen to MKG was losing Mark Price as a coach. He was showing legitimate improvement until he left. I say trade him if you can get something for him

anything is better than what I have seen TY...I am not exaggerating when I say I have not seen him make a jump shot all year

He made 3 tonight alone, you must not be paying attention.

It's hard to even blame him. His usage rate is 14.9%, which is 13th on the team. It's clear that the coaching staff doesn't concern themselves with getting offense out of him because they don't run the ball through him. If you can think about how little it seems like Roy Hibbert touches the ball, MKG gets it even less. It's tough to put that all on him. All of our bigs have a higher usage rate, which is strange.

Could see that, of course you have to put Batum on the opposing teams superstars to start game which isn't ideal either

maybe instead of posting his offensive stats - I should start posting the offensive stats from the player he is guarding to show how "Great" of a defender he is or isn't.. smh
