Shabazz Muhammad Bandwagon

Bazz has said he prefers the 2. I think he could do really well at the 2 posting up other players. Also the one luxury we have is MKG on the defensive end. Most teams don't have two dominate players at the 2 and 3 positions. Put MKG on their main scorer and then  let Bazz have the less efficient one.

carolina chuck seriously freaking annoys me. Can't explain it

 

Your profile picture annoys me. Just shut the fug up and talk about a topic without being an @ss for once. Take that $hit to the Panthers forum. Huddlers on the Hornets forum are quite mature, respectful, and open minded. It gets so annoying seeing stupid posters like you trying to be smart and funny every single day.

He's not fast enough to defend or play the 2. What he wants and what he is are 2 different things.

I don't particularly like any of the 2Gs in this draft outside of McLemore...and even he was pretty hot/cold. If Bennett is there then I'd take Bennett and hope to get a top 3 pick next year. The top 5 picks in next year's draft could all be better than this year's overall #1.

 

Andrew Wiggins

Marcus Smart

Julius Randle

Andrew Harrison

Jabari Parker

 

That is a ridiculous top 5 picks and honestly the Hornets have a pretty good shot at landing one of them. The top two, Wiggins and Smart, IMO have a really good chance to be the best at their position at the next level. This year's draft is about getting a solid player...not, IMO, about going all in for a guy who is boom or bust (like Shabazz).

 

Take Bennett if he's there. If he's not take Oladipo.

Yeah he plays nothing like Harden.  I see Shabazz as a silghtly better version of Marshon Brooks- good scorer with good size at the 2, but doesnt really do anything else on the court.  Plus their games are similar- they both love to post up a lot, which is a lost art at that position

I Dno. His game to me is more Harden than Brooks. I've seen nothing yet for him to tell me he's Brook.

James Harden has always reminded me of Ginobli- he creates off the dribble, and even though he looks to score first he can find the open guy when he needs to.  Shabazz looks to shoot first, and if he gets stopped he shoots it anyways.

 

I could see the similarities to Harden in that Shabazz is a crafty player, he may not have crazy athleticism but he finds ways to score with a change of pace on his dribble and a physical style that should let him score in the NBA.  If Shabazz cant figure out how to distribute the ball though I cant see him being more than a really good 6th man as instant offense off the bench

I think you're basing it on Harden's past season. No one really thought Harden was anything more than a role player, 6th man kind of guy until this season. He proved a lot of people wrong that he's capable of being the no.1 guy. Bazz is still only 20 yrs old and we have only seen 1 season of him. It can only get better from here on.


Harden has a great feel for the game and suprised many with how adept at scoring he was as a primary guy. Even coming off the bench you could see that he was worthy for a larger role somewhere else.

He was considered a sixth man bc he WAS the sixth man for OKC.

Shabzz has more in common with CJ Leslie than Harden. His ceiling is not as high as predicted either.

Great call.. Harden is young Manu with more scoring ability!! Both are matchup nighmares that score n run an offense. I want a James Hardin!!

SI.com reports that multiple league executives think Shabazz Muhammad will fall out of the lottery in June's draft.

 
Muhammad was once thought of as a guaranteed lottery pick and a possible top-five selection. However, the UCLA swingman was unimpressive at the scouting combine and SI.com quotes at least one Eastern Conference exec as being concerned about the depth of Muhammad's game. While it's wise to take this talk with a healthy grain of salt, it's worth mentioning since this isn't the first time we've heard of Muhammad's name sliding down draft boards.

Not considering this guy at all with the #4 pick.

 

I just find his story with his dad funny. He married a athlete to breed an athlete. I believe his other siblings were athletes as well but not as good as Shabazz. And then naming him Shabazz because it was a "marketable" name. As well as playing him with the lower age group to make sure he stood out. His dad truly living vicariously through him. Entertaining dude.
