Michael Beasley On The Radar

That's exactly what I'm talking about. That's why I said T-Rob could've even been a good addition if we didn't take MKG bc of like OKC where they have Ibaka and Perkins.

I think all these Bobcats' fans are dying for a real traditional Center bc they saw Hibbert shined last year. But it's hard to really find one and teams these days are really going smaller athletic players.

People keep saying this but how many teams won without a true center?

I'm willing to bet more teams have won with centers.

Let's remember the Bulls, Lakers, Dallas, and Spurs all had true centers.

You also want to draft Zellers who is a 5. So if you brought Hickson in to play PF you would have wasted a season of Bismack not playing PF. Zellers gets drafted by us and now you have to change Bismack again.

By saying to draft Zeller or Noel, I mean if the FO want to tank another season. That's rebuilding mode with a young group of guys and I would prefer that scenario.

But if the FO really want to rebuild fast and spend some money, why not spend it on a guy like Hickson? You'll have s strong 4 and 5. Next year take a shooter then.

But why have a mediocre team to win a few games and drop out if the top 3-4 picks when you can tank it again and get a talented big man in Zeller or Noel and build a bright young future like OKC.

there is no doubt Biyombo needs to be a 5 not a 4.

True but this year two finals teams had no true Center. It's great to have a guy like Hibbert who has all the physical attributes but how many teams actually has a true Center? Not much right. All i am saying is majority of the NBA teams are much smaller. Even this year no.1 pick AD, a big man is still only 6'11".

They really don't want to spend like that or they would have brought Hilbert in and gave him the Max. Or drafted Trob. They drafted MKG and will get Carroll and Diop off the books before they really start spending.

That's 1 year and not to many teams will have 3 elite scorer on them as well. It's a lot harder to build a team like Miami and OKC then is like the Spurs, Dallas, and the Lakers.

I Agee with that but teams now, are starting to have more smaller athletic guys to win. True 7 footer Center are really hard to find now and if you do have one, it's still hard to win with it (pacers) due to teams having great range shooters. Sure, Mavs won it with Chandler, but the real reason was bc of Nowitzki and Terry having the ability to score those jumpers.

Spurs got beat this year even though having Duncan, bc the other teams had guys who were faster and more athletic in guys like KD, Westbrook and Harden.

Also, just look at next year draft, the two best big men are 6'11" still.

Dallas wouldn't have won without Chandler.

Spurs have 4 titles.

And I'll take a 6'11 guy like Deandre Jordon, Or Zo Mouring.

Of course me too. But I thought we were debating about 7 footer true real Centers like Shaq and Chandler. Lakers and Mavs right?
