No gerald wallace was a much better shooter than mgk is right now. And thats part of the problem. Hes just a hustle/ effort player adding to a team that already had a 2 defensive minded starters at the time(hendo and biz). As attractive as he may have been there is no way in the hell mj should have made that pick,when clearly this team needed a scoring theat and a superstar type player.The team was clearly scoring on the lower end of the nba ppg last season and people like u were like, hey lets draft a defensive guy.

People like u need take off the homer goggles before charlotte no longer has a franchise.

Rookie vs Rookie MKG is better than Wallace. I love crash but come on the guy really wasn't even worth talking about until around 2005-2006. Unless you care about dunk contests. Also Wallace was a terrible shooter. He even had to have his shot worked on just like MKG is going to have to do.

We are comparing the 2nd pick to the 25th but you seem to want to compare a rookie to an 11 year vet. Unfortunately, your argument fails because MKG is the better rookie. He was the 2nd pick but sometimes you don't draft a player to immediately come in a score 20ppg. Especially in a draft like last years. You also can't help that we got hosed by the lottery. MKG is a solid building block for our rebuilding team. Still need probably 2 more drafts to get to where we need to be.

The past 2 drafts are the best we have had in team history. That should make every fan happy. I know that is not saying much but had we kept drafting like we were, You sir would be right and this team would be on its way out the door.

Here's to the future.

He played great tonight, best part about it is that all of his points come in the flow of the game. The kid can finish around the rim and my favorite play of his was the pull up he shot in the 2nd quarter. He pushed the fast break and had the confidence to stop and shoot in the flow of the play... Great game by MKG.

The scary thing about MKG is that he has yet to even tap into his potential. MKG has no offensive game to speak of tbh. He has basically zero plays ran for him, but he can still score efficiently at times. We all know about his defense, and his hustle, but his offense was terrific last night. He has GREAT instincts for a rookie and always know where to be. I can't wait until he develops more on the offensive side of the ball so that we can start running plays for him.

I love the pick..its what the Bobcats need even though Lillard the is more explosive scorer...it needs to start cuturally where a Lillard type would flounder here as a primary scorer.

MKG may not win MVP ever but he is a team changer. im all in and respect the way he plays.

No hindsight..I thought he was the third best player after Davis, MKG. I watched Beal and thought he was really overrated as he never really made any major impact on any game he played. Robinson and Barnes..cmon BBall is one of the easiest sports to scout.

Lillard, I went by scouts and such and found one game where I saw a lot of talent.. i was just saying my comment even with hindsight( you cant be mad at the MKG pick even if Lillard is the next Darren Williams.

This guy is unbelievable good. Way better than Beal, Robinson, or Barnes or whoever else. I think he is as good as Anthony Davis. His relentless defense, block shots and ability to get the ball in the hoop is great. He is not playing like a 19 year old rookie. He is going to be a STAR. Can't wait to get some more good players in the draft to round out of starting rotation with Kemba and MKG.

I hate to compare him to Gerald Wallace again but...

MKG: 25 points, 12 rebounds, 2 blks, 1 stl

That is exactly what GW gave us night in and night out. If Geralds shot was off he would play defense and block shots. MKG looks like a GW clone and at 19 a better clone at this point.

I'm liking this kid

Seems like the right draft pick.

If they hit next year, we could be in for a really good team in a few years moving forward

Wayyyy more upside than Crash. We're talking about a player that could give us what Pippen gave Chicago, only without a Jordan to outshine him. Our kids are stepping forward together and this rebuild may be shorter than MANY of us, myself included, anticipated. We're starting to become relevant and MKG is a big reason for that. He's only 19 by a few months. Pretty much straight out of HS with a National Championship. Not many in history have come into the league as strong defensively as MKG has at his position.
