Was just listening to an interview they were doing with him. Wow. He's not exactly a wordsmith. Some of his answers to question could be summed up as "Um...um...um." That's it. I'll give him somewhat of a break as it sounded like he was in a busy airport and he is only 19 after all, but jeez.

You should give him more than a bit of a break. The man has a speech problem. I don't care if the man was a damn mute as long as he plays for us like he played in college.

MKG isnt Cam, but this seems like a similar pick. People are nitpicking MKG.

He has a speech issue and it obviously gets worse when he is excited and/or nervous..aka every interview he has done leading up to and after the draft. There are some very good speech therapist in the Charlotte area..so I'm sure he will be able to work on his speech. Add time with a speech therapist with him becoming comfortable in Charlotte..and his interviews will be much improved. His comfort zone should be higher than most rookies as he has family in both Charlotte and Winston-Salem.

Bill Walton had a speech impediment now he's a NBA broadcaster. So it can and will improve.

Yeah, I'd cut the guy some slack. When I hear him talk I don't think "man this guy is stupid." It's very obvious that he has a speaking problem and I'm sure being in the spotlight has made him very self conscious about it. It's a tough thing to break.

I didn't really want us to draft him, but now that we have, I hope he is a star.

His "impediment" disappears when he's comfortable. It's a nervousness thing; he hates public speaking. He just wants to play basketball and win.
