Hornets NBA Draft News Thread

I don't want to clog up this forum so I'll ask this question here...

 

Why is Reggie Bullock so underrated in this draft? At the combine all I was hearing was that he was the best shooter in this draft, he's a lock down defender, and he can drive to the basket pretty good. So why is his draft stock in the second round?

 

I want to say that it has to do with him being primarily an outside shooter.

 

He's not the best one-on-one player like Hairston is. Also he's not very aggressive toward attacking the rim (like Hairston), if I'm not mistaken Bullock only averaged two foul shots per game (that's not very good).

 

The main thing holding him back is probably his defense, if he is able to get it together and truly commit to playing two way ball; he will have a Danny Green type of NBA career.

One of my main issues with Mclemore is his disappearing tendency.   We already have MKG who has a habit of disappearing on offense as well, and that's not  a good combination.  I also question his shot creating ability, yes he can shoot 3s and dunk, but what else can he do?   He would need a big to take some attention inside first to create some open looks which we currently don't really have, and I think should be a focus on in this draft.  

 

That I will agree with you on, he struggles off of the dribble (which separates him from players like Ray Allen); but with proper coaching he can develop a go to crossover move that will really help his game. Remember he was just a freshman last year, so he has time to grow. There are obviously some questions surrounding his disappearances in games and his inability to create his own shot. However, I am under the assumption that the good outweighs the bad when it comes the McLemore.

 

If McLemore ever develops something like the video below, he will be a very good ball player...

WTF are you talking about?

 

MKG disappeared because he can't shoot and they weren't running plays for him. Mclemore is a different players totally from MKG. Actually they would make a pretty good combination together.

Soft as tissue paper.

 

Give me Bennett. 

 

If we want a big man with big potential, take Rudy Gobert out of France.

Oladipo is going to surprise a LOT of people with his ability on offense.

Still think Oladipo is the best player in the draft and it's not close. He can drive, create his own shot, plays great defense. Plays with a ton of hustle and energy. His outside shot improved dramatically over the course of the NCAA season. He's the perfect NBA 2 guard. Pair him with MKG and Kemba and that's one tough defensive backcourt with a ton of athleticism. I'm not worried about the scoring because I think Kemba has improved his outside shot each season, plus MKG will improve some what with his shot consistency. Oladipo improved enough with his shot over the NCAA season that I wouldn't be worried about his outside shot either.

I don't see MKG as a shooter, but a good outside threat at SG will open some lanes

for him to get to the basket.

 

We need scorers and rebounders, so while we probably won't get a superstar in this draft,

we need to make sure we do get someone who can help the team.  It can't be that hard at

the 4th pick, can it?

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
