My question is there any chance that New Orleans doesn't take Davis?

He needs to do a Kobe Bryant or a Eli Manning.

Anthony Davis is an overrated by-product of ESPN. Just 1 year ago McAdoo was dominating him in the all-star games & Davis was being labeled a bust/overrated prospect. Losing out on him is a blessing in disguise much like when the Panthers lost out on Andrew Luck.

To win championships in the NBA you must have a superstar. Duncan, Kobe, Wade, Durant, LeBron, Rose etc. There isn't a single player in this draft with Davis or the previous 2 drafts with Wall & Irving who represent that. The next prospect who fills that role is Shabazz Mohammed. Jordan needs to take the risk needed & get Shabazz. Trade the #2 & Augustin to Washington for their 2013 #1. Next year you either win the lottery & get Shabazz or you have 3 top 10 picks, future 1st round picks, & players as trade bait to move up.

MKG would be nice, I wouldnt mind Robinson or Beal though. I'm not sure what everybody is freaking out about, this draft is very good and lets be honest, this team is headed for a top pick next year whether Davis was coming here or not. Davis is going to take some time adjusting to the NBA and he wont be making all star games and all-NBA teams right away.

Bobcats need to land a starter to help build the team, not a savior to single-handedly turn the team around

Once workouts start who knows what'll happen. Best case scenario is to work a trade with Portland. Man, Hornets get #1 and #9...good to be a fan of them now. Didn't someone the up getting a lottery pick for Gerald Wallace? The Cats gave hiim away didn't they?

This draft is basically Lebron James at #1 and Darko-fuging-Milicic as #2

That's how much of a dropoff between the top player and the second in this draft. Whoever this team chooses at #2 will be solely potential based, which fuging blows.

Drummond fits the bill.

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.


what? davis was talked about as the #1 pick long before the start of the tournament.

shabazz mohammed hasn't played ANY college ball and you're sitting here saying that he's a better prospect than davis/wall/irving? gtfo

"Talked about as being", not "wow this is beyond doubt a franchise player". That was my point. There were a group of four or five guys that had a claim to being the first overall pick halfway through the CBB season. At the end of the day, about 15 games decided where those guys were slotted. Who is to really say that one will undoubtedly be better than the others.
