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.
