Who the F_ck are you? I do know that on a subpar team with only one All-Star Jarrett Jack averaged 11pts and 5 assists sharing time with Jose Calderon. In other words with less minutes and undeniably less talent at SG and SF than Raymond had to work with he had only 1 pt and .6 assists less. Lastly Jack is an ACC alumni who just so happens to be an affordable PG with experience. Don't be that guy. Pop in talk schit and then leave without blessing us with what by your estimation is an extensive and unparalleled knowledge of the game.

"Who are you" is a question that idiots ask as if "WHO" ever matters more than "WHAT, HOW, OR WHY".

If the Bobcats had a brain, they would be focusing their attention on the Center position. Those are harder to come by than a "SERVICEABLE" PG.

They could make it through a season with PGs as weak as Augustin and either Pargo or Collins. If they want to CHANGE their roster, they need to make sure they sign Thomas and somebody like Al Jefferson.

Not even Chris Paul would change this team's fortunes dramatically without a dominant inside force, because Jackson and Wallace aren't good enough at the 2 and 3 to overcome the void in the middle, particularly in the conference with Dwight Howard...that is if you ever want to do something other than just barely make the Playoffs.

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.

Reputation is irrelevant. Payton and Harper were all name at that point.

Everyone on that list other than Tony Parker, at that point in their career, was a "SERVICEABLE POINT GUARD". They were slow, and other than Derek Fisher and Billups who I've already discussed, none of them could shoot all that well. None of them were the flashy point guards that you people covet. Rondo sucked in 2008.

And like I said, the Spurs won Championships before they ever had a "Tony Parker." They won with Avery Johnson.

Still, how many Championships have the "BEST" PGs in the league won since 2001. None of those guys on that list were the "BEST" PG in the league in that season.

The Lakers had Shaq in 2001 and 2002 (and of course Kobe).

The Spurs had Tim Duncan and David Robinson in 2003.

Only the 2004 Pistons could you POSSIBLY say that Billups was the best player on that team, which is arguable. Tayshaun Prince probably deserved to be the MVP. But even that team had RASHEED WALLACE dominating the 4, AND BEN WALLACE and others being able to somewhat defend Shaq.

Getting a very good Center to go along with Tyrus Thomas would do more for this team than getting a great PG and having a void in the middle. If they are going to make an investment this offseason, it should be to the inside. You can do more with a serviceable PG than you can with a pathetic inside game.

Wow, lots of undercooked and not fully formed thoughts coming from EC12345's dome.

First and foremost WHO THE F DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? Is a more relevant question than What,Why or How you came to think you know everything.

A debate about which is more valuable to a franchise a PG or a Center is a fair one. But anyone with a "brain" would know that the on-court extension of the coach and the main ball security agent is a valuable one. As a counterpoint the Center is typically the enforcer of the paint and rebound hound.

The Bobcats of course could make it through the season with mediocre "SERVICEABLE" play from the PG position. (We did it last year.) But exceptional PG play paired with a stable of "serviceable" Centers would improve our chances of getting past the first round of the playoffs. Speaking of playoffs. Did you see the Magic series or are you merely talking out your proverbial arse? Dwight Howard (undeniably the BEST Center in the GAME) was taken out of his game by our sub-par Center rotation. Jameer Nelson hurt us alot more.

CP3 would improve our team a million times more that Al Jefferson or any other Center/PF you have a man crush on. Point Guards make everyone on the team better. Centers get rebounds, blocks and defend the post. A scoring Center is an anomaly and is rarely who the offense flows through.

Evidently you have ZERO SHORT TERM MEMORY. Last year the Celtics had a young All Star in Rondo playing his heart out as much as anyone else on that squad. This year Derek Fisher who you dismiss as SERVICEABLE was the third leading scorer behind only Shaq and Kobe as part of a three peat many years ago. Phil Jackson has coached Derek for 11 years and trusts him as his field general. He is more than SERVICEABLE.

Speaking of recent champions the same disrespect you give Derek you heap on Chauncey Billups and Avery Johnson. Chauncey does more than as you eloquently put it "walk up the court and shoot a three." Avery has a well tuned mind for basketball that has served him well. Apparently you are more concerned with BRUTE FORCE than EFFICIENCY and INTELLIGENCE. You lose so much creditiblity when you reference the PG play of the BULLS DYNASTY ERA. I guess it was their Centers that won them those championships, huh? Luc Longley, Bill WeNNington, Will Perdue, and Bill Cartwright were that good i guess.

Sign Thomas, find a sharp shooting 6th man, get whatever you can for Raymond-TC-and Boris Diaw and add an upgrade at Point Guard....if you want a team that is exciting and can threaten in the East.

Worrying about big bodies in the paint over distributing the ball and making the other players better is simply NOT thinking.

And yet every other time Tony Parker was discussed with the Spurs, so you know what I meant in that ONE SENTENCE out of hundreds, idiot.

Anybody can distribute the ball.

I've already CORRECTED your argument in the other posts I made, so I'm not going to dedicate much time to it here.

A great point guard OVERCOMES flaws in the offense because he can create. A good big man ELIMINATES those problems just by being on the court, because he demands attention which creates perfect spacing, which allows even an OKAY PG to work.

Teams with the BEST PG win less often than those with the best inside offense (and defense), unless they have Jordan and Pippen on the wing, then they can have pathetic PGs and Centers and still win.

You're better when the game can be played from the inside-out unless you have Kobe Bryant or somebody like that on the wing who can operate outside the offense.

With what the Bobcats already have, Jefferson is more important than a CP3. CP3 still doesn't get them past Orlando.

Yeah, CP i have to say EC is most def full of it. If CP3 is moved it will be huge news on par with the Lebron, Wade and Bosh Sweepstake. The Timberpups pawning off Al Jefferson and his escalating salary that will be 15 million before it expires will be merely a blip on the radar.
