Considering the roster I've been happy with the Bobcats, far better effort and mentality.

I think MKG will really shine when he's on a team with better players. He isn't supposed to be the focal point of the offense and I don't expect him to be a standout until he is surrounded with better talent. So this year, I am not expecting much other than hustle, defense, and rebounds.

As far as Lillard, I loved him coming into the draft but we had Kemba. They only way he was even a possibility if Kemba had been traded before the draft. Lillard is the new breed of score-first PGs. That's not to say he can't get others involved. Utilizing the pick and roll with Lillard is the perfect way for him to become a facilitator. He was the one rookie who I thought would challenge Davis for ROY.

I don't think Lillard's stock fell at all. If anything it rose. He was the 6th overall pick. I would have taken him before MKG if we had traded Kemba.


Don't worry there's Myck Kabongo next year. He's a pass first PG.

I love Kemba and Sessions a lot but they're not going to manage your offense and pick the defense apart.

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.
