Shabazz Muhammad Bandwagon

That first interview he had talking about his age really threw me off a bit. I think I'd pass on him, as well.

What ever happened to this kid? I think we have all forgot about Shabazz Muhammad. One of the best high school prospect to come out and after 1 college season, his stock his taking a dramatic HIT. I'm not a fan of his ego on the court, but he is still a highly talented basketball player. The kid sounds smart, humble, and very passionate when interviewed. He also played on a UCLA team that has done great preparing players into the NBA. I believe his name needs to be mentioned more as a possible pick at no.4. He would greatly improve our back court. I do believe that he's an upgrade over Hendo though he plays more like a SF. The more I think, the more I like the idea of taking Shabazz at the no.4 pick. Forget the bad media attention. Shabazz is clearly the best available player along with maybe Anthony Bennett at our spot. I believe MJ will take a HARD, HARD look at the kid. Yes, I think I'm jumping on the Shabazz Bandwagon as of now.

If you dont like him, you dont have to be disrespectful. Everyone has their own guy.

I have liked Bazz for quite some time, and while he disappointed me with his lack of defense and play-making -- his scoring was among the best. I would be pretty happy if we drafted Shabazz, but for me it's really between Bazz, Oladipo, and Len, with Zeller as a wildcard (because he is talented and tested VERY well in the combine).

I could stand to add Zeller to my list. Right now, I'm hoping for and would be happy with Oladipo, Bennett, or Zeller. If McLemore slips to us, I guess I'd be okay with it at #4. I just didn't think he'd be worth it at #1.

This is why I think Shabazz makes perfect sense:
*** Rich Cho and the OKC Model ***
We have a PG (Kemba), SF (Kidd-Gilchrist), and an improving PF/C (Biz). We're missing SG and another Big. From all the things I've heard that the Bobcats might not offer Hendo anything, I dont think he's coming back. Shabazz' game is very similar to James Harden. Cho and MJ is going to take some serious look at him. Remember MJ's interests in Harden last season?? Adding Shabazz will give us a young and very similar back court to OKC. Go head and add a Paul Millsap or Al Jefferson and say hello to OKC 2.0. I really think that MJ/Cho would rather go young in the back court and add a veteran player inside than vise versa. If Cho is serious about his OKC model, this is the route he should take.
