STUDS

2. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Bobcats

He played just one game, but he so thoroughly dominated it that the Bobcats really saw all they needed to see. There was no point risking further injury to his knee after he controlled the defense and the tempo of the game in a blowout win over the Kings.

For more on Kidd-Gilchrist's awesome game, read this.


13. Jeff Taylor, Bobcats

Already an elite defender, Taylor is a perfect fit in new coach Mike Dunlap's system. He is extremely quick sliding his feet, and he has great length to contest shots. In a full-court game, Taylor will thrive. He also flashed a pretty good three-point stroke, as well as a nice shot-fake, dribble pull-up game. The shots didn't always go down, but he was making all the right plays. He reminded me a lot of Thabo Sefolosha, except with better three-point capabilities.

Ehh, I agree with the MKG assessment. I can't get with the Taylor write-up. He reminds me more of an Allan Houston-type player, but with better defense. Whereas others are trying to box him in as a defensive guy with some offensive skill, I see it the other way around.

Wow, I didn't realize that Thomas Robinson played so badly, but I'm really not going to beat myself up for not following the Sacremento Kings in summer league basketball.

I thought I read somewhere that Sacramento had him playing the 3 and not the 4. Feel free to correct me if i am wrong in that assumption. But if he is playing the 3, that could explain his struggles in summer league.

although summer league should be taken with a grain of salt, I never wanted to draft T-Rob. If we hadn't drafted MKG, I wanted Beal, then Barnes

Honestly, if Houston keeps the guys they have they'll be pretty darn good in a few years.

Lamb, Montejunas, White and Jones should be solid talent.
