Ofcourse. Kabongo is damn good. I think he'd be upgrade over Kemba and Sessions. Kabongo is a Canda Native like Nash. Hes a first pass PG who will pick defense apart. Had a mediocre season last season at Texas but look for him to improve and rise his stock this upcoming season.

Kabongo is pretty good, not sure he's top 5 quality. I think we need to target a PF next year.

Watch out for Kasey Hill, he's a HS Senior now. Dude is one of the best PG prospects I have seen in a while.

Yea, didnt say wanted him in the top 5-10 but if we get another mid to late 1st, I'd take Kabongo in a heart beat.

And fosure, that 2014 class is lock and loaded with Kasey Hill, Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, and Julius Randle.

Gotcha.

And yes, now that Wiggins has reclassified, it makes that class that much more loaded.

Glad to see mkg getting some recognition. Cause as a huge UK fan I have to say he was over-shadowed by davis. which is understandable when you look at davis's resume'. But I knew mkg would be a major impact where ever he landed. Just glad it was in N.C. Hopefully they can build up some talent around him and our pro teams success might be equal to our college teams success. Personally i don't care to much for the nba but he could bring enthusiasm to the state and recapture my interest.

Maybe he was overshadowed in the state of Kentucky or as a UK fan by Davis. But being an outsider looking into the team, no smart person doubted the skills and talents the KIDD had. He's playin very well in the first 3gms of his career and we're very fortunate to build a franchise with him.

And we're, we'll myself am not done yet with any UK players. I love UNC, Duke, State and Wake but how is Nerlens Noel coming along? Have college preseason started yet? I'd love to add another UK player in Noel since we got screwed by David Stern and loss out on Davis.

maybe if youre just a simpleton that only look at points per game...he just makes the team better. Only player to have a positive +/- in all 3 games

his per 36 numbers are nuts 9.5 rebounds 2.4 steals 2.8 blocks.

FYI many years ago...one of our own Gerald Wallaces greatest career accomplishments was that he averaged 2blks and 2stls per game and he was the only noncenter to ever do it (and iirc the only 2 who had were Olajuwon and Robinson). MKG is almost doing that now in 25minutes per game as a damn barely 19 year old rookie. Extrapolated to starter minutes, let alone the 40+ those guys played, MKG gets that easily.

MKG is pretty much as good as prime Gerald Wallace right now. As the weeks go by and Dunlap increases him to 30+ minutes youll see

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.

Yeah we need more scoring guys durr. We're like 8th in the league in offensive efficiency averaging 100ppg.

MKG is 8th in rookie scoring and trendingt up

Yea, okay.
Wallace was a really good player for us, but it took him until his 4th season to start producing anything.
