charlotte bobcats Bobcats 1st Round-Pick #2 SF Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

182 posts in this topic

Why would you draft a defensive minded player when the bobcats are so inept on offense?

Because the bobcats win total next year is not important. You dont go from the worst team in NBA history to a playoff team in one fuging draft. For the cats, the draft is about getting good pieces to build around, and I think MKG is an excellent prospect.

A few days ago I wouldnt have like this pick as much, but I think Gilchrist will be a good fit next to Ben Gordon (who can shoot all day but cant play any sort of D). MKG will fit in well with the up tempo offense Dunlap is bringing in, hopefully we can bring in some role players who can shoot (like the Spurs seem to find every year)

I don't understand the people who are saying "OH NO's WE WON'T BE ABLE TO SCORE!" well we aren't done building the team yet. Hell, we basically just started building the team. MKG isn't the last piece he's just the first big one. This isn't the end of the process we are going to have to go through. It isn't even the end of the beginning.

I was surprised and a little disappointed that we were not able to pull off the Cleveland trade. However, with keepin gthe #2 pick, MKG is a good pick. There were no can't miss prospects after Davis (if you consider Davis can't miss). All of them have holes in their game.

As one commentator said.....give me a hard working player any day. That is what you got in MKG. He was a solid pick.

I agree. Im only disappointed about no trades. MKG will be a star.

btw..Big unc fan here. MKG got the best of him in high school and the game at UK last year.

I still wanted Barnes for offense but MKG is a stud

Still not too excited by the pick, never had a problem with the player, but spending a #2 on this guy just kills me.

Anyways, here's to another tank season. At least it'll be an exciting one.
