No Anthony Davis For Charlotte, Now What?

The dream is dead. This team is as low in the NBA food chain as you can get. Aside from a total makeover and name change (If Benson makes it so) how is MJ going to save this franchise?

Anthony Davis would have covered up some of the fundamental flaws this team has (no superstar) but now they have to make this #2 pick. Who should it be?

I'm still in the Drummond camp since we still need a center. Beal isn't better than Hendo nor is MKG. We have plenty of bodies at PF so Robinson isn't a need.

I'd hate to be MJ this week. It's put up or shut up time. He may have to pay for the only thing(Hornets nickname) that may jump start this flat lining franchise. Is he willing to cut the check?

MJ would save the franchise by selling it to someone who knew what they were doing and acted like they actually cared about the team

oh and Drummond is the next Kwame Brown. But MJ did draft him so I wouldn't be surprised. Although i don't see him passing up on Barnes

Trade with Portland. Send DJ packing also with the deal. Take Drummond if he's there at 6th and Marshall at 11th.

that's basically like taking May and Felton. But I do think Marshall is better than Felton

Maybe but Drummond and Marshall are much better than May/Felton.

Drummond is boom/bust with high risk reward. Marshall may be one if the best PG that came out of UNC. I believe he will be better than Ty Lawson.

I don't know if I'd take a shot on Marshall. I'm a UNC fan myself, but i feel he's too slow to guard a majority of the PGs in the NBA. I also don't think he'll be better than Lawson. Lawson is about to be a star in the league. Everything is starting to click for him

This garbage is hilarious. Prior to the tournament, it wasn't even a slam dunk that Anthony Davis was going to be the first overall pick in his own draft class and now people are acting like we missed out on LeBron or Durant. It makes zero sense. Not saying that Davis will not be a good professional, he will, but don't act like he's a game changer when we don't even know if dude can score at the next level with any kind of consistency. The gap between picks 1, 2, and 3 are razor thin. We're going to get a damn good player regardless.

All we can do now is wait. Cho has proven to be a methodical GM that has drafted very well and can put together steals in trades.

@Vagrant is right in that Davis had a bullish stock in the last few months. Remember, not too long ago there was a 'Suck for Drummond' thread. Then he kind of disappeared. There really is no right or wrong with the first 3 picks. I will admit I was furious when we lost out on Davis, but having slept on it, and thinking as a logical fan of the Bobcats, we have a lot of options. A trade with Portland is a possibility. There is the Cho connection AND we have their first rounder next year. MKG really isn't a bad consolation prize either.

I think MKG is the best option. He may not be an incredibly sexy pick, but he's very consistent, and will truly help this team improve.

Listening to Dan Patrick right now w/ Anthony Davis being interviewed

1. Davis said it was a Charlotte hornets hat he was wearing

2. Grew up a bulls & mj fan

3. His family is upset, especially his mother, that he will not be playing in Charlotte. He has many friends here( how he got the hornets hat) and has family here. Wanted to play for MJ.

4. Dan Patrick said it sounded like Davis was dissapointed he won't be playing for his idol in Charlotte

Man this has got to make it "sting" even more. What could of been.

PS like I said if you are a fan of the rebrand, not getting Davis was probably the best thing to happen for us.

Give me Davis over the re-brand 7 days out of the week.

Hell, Kobe made it clear he wanted to play in a big market, maybe Davis will make it clear he wants to play in Charlotte and we broker a deal? I know, I know. Dream in one hand and sh*t in another.
