Why Michael Kidd-Gilchrist fits the Bobcats system (my write-up)

51 posts in this topic

Would love to have a top 3 pick next year, we'll definitely get our superstar within the top 5 picks. This class was WEAK.

Great write up. MKG is a beast and cannot wait to see him hit the floor. I'm actually excited about next year. We may not be that good but we have some good young talent.

Why MKG doesn't make sense for Bobcats

"The Bobcats needed offense. They ranked last in the NBA this season in field-goal percentage (41.4) and 3-point percentage (29.5). They also ranked last in points per play on jump shots, catch-and-shoot jumpers, spot-up plays and overall offense.

Kidd-Gilchrist doesn’t seem to fit those needs. He shot 25 percent this season on catch-and-shoot jumpers and 20 percent on jumpers off the dribble. Of the 501 college players with at least 100 spot-up plays (includes jumpers and drives to the basket that aren’t isolation or pick-and-roll), Kidd-Gilchrist ranked 491st in points per play."

Another article that thinks we should've drafted for the short term. I love when people start throwing numbers around. Ray Allen in his prime wouldn't have had a great statistical year with us last season.

Stupid to say that jump shooting was only one of many problems? Shooters need space and rhythm to shot high percentages consistently. Ben Gordon is a more proven shooter than anything in the draft anyway.

Last year, it was tough to watch no one hit anything. But it was even more embarrassing watching the overall quality of basketball the team played. The screens were weak, the cuts were slow, the rotations on defense were non existent, the team played with 0 swag.

If we had one guy that could've scored us a few more points wouldn't have changed the fact that we were possibly the worst team ever. Adding an 18 yo kid that is physically ready to compete at the highest level is a much bigger step then adding a guy who can hit a perimeter jump shot.

One of the most glowing remarks I've read about MKG since the draft is the fact that one analysts believes that MKG could've had an impact in the athletic NBA finals we just watched between mia and okc. It's not the direction the league is headed its where the league is. The sky is the limit for this kid and the effects he will have on NBA games.

This draft was suppose to be the best in the last few years. Next year draft won't be as good as this one was.
