Hornets passed on Bradley Beal, passed on Devin booker, this year we will pass on Malik Monk ....

 

god I really, really try to stay unbiased with my disdain for Frank de Tank (and seriously I hope he becomes a great NBA player because lord knows we need it) but we passed on Devin Booker when the league was moving to a style were shooters were golden. 

I understand the MKG over Beal pick, but there really is no excuse for drafting Frank over Booker- at least if Booker fails you went down swinging for the fences. 

Frank has played well lately.  But yeah, he'll never be as good as Booker.

Next year will be a big year for him. Can he be an All-Star caliber player or is he at best a decent rotational guy? I don't know but we passed on a superstar- it's just frustrating.

I mean,  a lot of teams passed on Booker man.  That one I forgive him for.  At least Frank is better than Winslow.  

But, Morrison?  Ajinca over DeAndre Jordan?  Those two picks I can't forgive.

I am going to say they pick from a group of Lauri Markkanen, TJ Leaf, Zach Collins, Isaiah Hartenstein, or Tyler Lydon. :+)

Lauri Markkanen projects to what we wanted out of Frank. I'd take Lauri and jettison Frank in a heartbeat.

I like Frank but Booker over Frank is probably gonna look really bad in a couple years. Ajinca was terrible but I wouldn't say not taking DJ is one of their more unforgivable moves considering how average he looked for the first 4-5 years of his career, hell looking at that draft Ryan Anderson, Courtney Lee, Ibaka, Batum, George Hill or Dragic would've been a better pick.

I was being sarcastic, but it is what will likely happen, sadly. 

 

Hornets Checklist Recently:

White [ ]

Tall [ ]

No Post Game [ ]

Plays No Defense [ ]

 

If they pass all of these then they can become our pick or we can trade for them. This is a great draft class, and somehow I still believe the Hornets will end up like the picture below:

If they actually do the right thing and fire Rich Cho then maybe they have a chance of making better decisions in the draft.

Oh it will be a PF, no question about that.  Well unless we trade the pick for another Plumlee.

Bridges and Thomas Bryant.

 

That would be the Hornets' best draft in years, easy.

I would pretty much do anything for us to draft Monk. He is exactly what we need.
