Here is the Pro Comparisons from Draft Express for every guy they have done

MKG- Best Case: Gerald Wallace, Worst Case: Corey Brewer
Andre Drummond- Best Case: Andrew Bynum, Worst Case: Kwame Brown
Kendall Marshall- Best Case: Andre Miller, Worst Case: Mark Jackson
Terrence Jones- Best Case: Al Harrington (Prime), Worst Case: Michael Beasley
Tony Wroten- Best Case: Tyreke Evans, Worst Case: Julius Hodge
Kevin Jones- Best Case: Chuck Hayes, Worst Case: Shaun Stonerook
Tornike Shengelia- Best Case: Andres Nocioni (Prime), Worst Case: Nik Caner-Medley

Didn't know where to put this, so I just stuck it in here.

These guys are pretty good with their predictions.

Even thoe I think MKG will be a better player then Crash. I'd love to have a Bynum type on this team.

MKG Beal or Barnes and I'm happy. All three have the potential to be great and are fairly safe picks.

All three should become great player and really good shooters. Barnes and Neal probably better shooter. MKG better defender. But I like MKG more and he's the safer pick of those three in my opinion.

im still thinking MKG he will be another iggy not a superstar but will be able to drive and score with relentless defense and effort as well, he is the safest pick for a team that cant afford to miss on this pick, if i was a GM/Coach thats who i would pick....

as a fan if not MKG i would look towards drummmond, just because big men with that size and athletic skills is so rare. But he is very raw and relies only on his athletic skills, watching him at UCONN was painfull since he showed little effort or desire which scares me, he also looks lost alot on the court and basketball doesnt seem natural to him

Well done CC. Best piece I've seen you do in a while. I'm on board, this guy is amazing. That Kentucky team was something special.

Can't shoot, especially not in a real game. For a team that can't buy a basket, no thank you. If they did a lot of dealing in the offseason where they ended up with someone like Wesley Matthews starting at SG instead of Henderson, then MKG would make SOME sense. With that line up listed above, he doesn't. Everyone currently on the roster except for Biyombo should be expendable. If they can package Kemba or Henderson for something or another 1st round pick, I'd be all for that too. Kemba is leaving Charlotte for the Big Apple as soon as he gets a chance to anyway.

That Kentucky team wasn't any more special than Calipari's last Memphis & UMass teams, as time will reveal.

True. I'm down to MKG or Beal at no.2 if we keep that pick.
But since we still have Henderson at SG, I'd at least see him perform for another year and take MKG at SF.
Though, any position is an upgrade for us.


The fact that Henderson starts simply proves how much the rest of the lineup sucked. It doesn't mean he needs to be a part of your long-term plans.

I agree that MKG isnt a great fit for this bobcats team (given it's painful lack of shooting), but he would give this team a player to build around and he is a lot more than a defensive specialist. By all accounts he has a great work ethic, and he brings a level of intensity and effort that was completely missing from the Bobcats last year. He is a great rebounder for a SF, and is very effective at getting into the paint and finishing, especially in transition.

His offensive game isnt particularly developed, but he is quick off the dribble so I think he has a lot of room to develop (as opposed to a guy like Barnes, who will never have a quick enough first step to take NBA defenders off the dribble). If we drafted MKG we definitely need to target a shooter in free agency or through a trade though- he wont be effective on offense if our court spacing is as awful as it was last year

Yes to MKG and no to Kamen, he is too old.

I say break the bank for Roy Hibbert and make him an offer that he can't turn down

PG- Kemba Walker
SG- Gerald Henderson
SF- Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
PF- Bismack Biyombo
C- Roy Hibbert


outside Kemba that is one hell of a defensive team. I like it.

Yes i agree.
I'm one of the few, probably the only one who think that Henderson is not a player for the future. Dude is athletic but terrible most of the time IMO. Hes not someone who can go out there and win a game for us. He will never be able to. As a lottery pick, he should have shown more than what he has. Hendo is at best someone who comes off the bench only.

With that said, no one said he was going to be a long term plan. But for now he is. It's not that easy trading Henderson as people think. So it is what it is. Stick with who you have and don't complain.
