MKG on playing with Kemba "You going to see what happens when we start playing with each other"

Hopefully MKG and Kemba turns out to be a great combo in the future.

You don't have to like the pick but don't act like you know anything about basketball or what a player can do.

I was on Harrison Barnes before the draft but I kept hearing scout after scout saying that when Him and MKG matched up.

Harrison Lost and Knew it.


What do you mean matched up?

According to Harrison, he and MKG never went one on one in draft workouts.

Why would anyone admit that someone else is better than them?

I highly doubt Barnes did that...

They matched up at Highschool AAU circuit and a NBa camp ran by Dave Telep.

Do you have a quote where Barnes says flat out that MKG is the better player?

I'm not saying I don't believe you, I just don't understand why player who is rated so closely to another player would say "he is better than me".

man dont worry bout proving poo to any of them, they dont wanna hear it. most of them dont follow the team but come in to talk trash because there beloved tar holes are off in summer classes having their tutors take test for them. when the season is going on there is only about 5 of us that follow the team and talk about the team. yes we know are team is the worst in the league. yes we know its rebuilding time and it should take 4 yrs, not 1. this "poo leaper" just wants to argue, not for a player he has ever said he wants/wanted, but just to say we picked a "scrub" MKG led that team to the championship, he was the heart of the team, he can drive with either hand and finish at the rim. he can pass, he can rebound, and play great defense. all teams are built over time not because of 1 player, MKG will be like iggy. score 15pts 7 reb, 4 ast, 2steals. he will make kemba better by allowing him to play off ball. i love the pick and am happy that we got him, i wanted to trae with the cavs to 4 and hopefully still get MKG, so i was somewhat dissapointed when we didnt trade, but it didnt happen. time to move on and cheer for the team.

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.

Wonder who will win the Stern lottery next year?
