Yeah your right a Center is much more important than a floor general.
1. Thats why the Celtics have Rajon Rondo all-star point guard and Kendrick Perkins as there Center.
2. Thats why the Lakers have Derek Fisher one of the most underrated point guards in the league and Andrew Bynum at Center.
3. Derrick Rose and Jokaim Noah in Chicago
4. Brandon Jennings and Andrew Bogut in Milwaukee
5. In Utah Deron Williams and Okur
6. Chauncey Billups and Nene in Denver
I could go on and on but the point is there is no since in having a big man if you can't get the ball to him
i.e. Tyson Chandler with Chris Paul- GOOD
i.e. Tyson Chandler with out Chris Paul- BAD
Evidently, you have ZERO critical thinking skills.
How many of those teams won the Championship this year or last?
The Lakers won with Derek Fisher who is a SERVICEABLE point guard. Not overly talented, but reliable. They dominated other teams in the paint.
Miami won it with who as their PG? Don't know, but they had Wade and Shaq.
The Celtics won it with Avery Johnson at the point, before they ever heard of a Tony Parker.
Billups has always been a "SERVICEABLE" PG, and by that, I mean, he's not a Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, or Derron Williams type of Guard. He's a guy who walks the ball up the court and can hit a three pointer, just like Fisher.
The Bulls won with Paxson and Kerr. Again, guys who were not the iconic Isaiah Thomas types.
Having a great PG would always be good if you can get one. In the NBA, it's never more important than being able to control the game on the inside (unless you have outstanding wings, which the Bobcats do not).
Apparently you are more concerned with FLAIR than EFFICIENCY. When your "FLAIR" PGs start winning Championships, then you might have a point.
How many Championships has Steve Nash won? If they had two dominant players in the inside, they'd have gotten by the Lakers and the Spurs at least once. For some reason, Shaq and Duncan were just too much for them to overcome, even though Nash was light years better than Fisher.
Get Thomas and Jefferson, then sign whatever Point Guard you can find...if you want a team that can threaten in the Eastern Conference.
Going PG first, is backwards thinking.
You want to make EVERY POSITION on the Bobcats better? You want to make the offense more efficient? Sign Al Jefferson and watch the floor open up.
A great point guard OVERCOMES problems by creating offense where none exists. An efficient inside threat SOLVES offensive problems, particularly on a team like the Bobcats where none of the players that you do have are too creative.
