2014 NBA Draft Talk

It's never too early to start looking toward the future. Especially when it is a talented and loaded draft class.

 

Everywhere I looked, majority has the 76ers landing the no1 pick. Dno why. They may or may not be as bad as us with the departure of Jrue Holiday, but that doesn't mean they're going to easily land it. The Lakers and Celtics may even luckily land the Andrew Wiggins Sweepstake next year.

 

Well, all along Cho has preached about the OKC model. OKC it is!!! Similarity? YES, just look.

 

****************************************************************************************************************************

2007 Seattle, No.2 Pick: Kevin Durant SF, Texas

2008 Seattle, No.4 Pick: Russell Westbrook PG, UCLA

2009 OKC (franchise moved/name change), No.3 Pick: James Harden SG, Arizona State

 

 

2012 Bobcats, No.2 Pick: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF, Kentucky

2013 Bobcats, No.4 Pick: Cody Zeller PF/C, Indiana

                                "projected pick"

2014 Hornets (rebrand Hornets/name change), No.3 Pick: Jabari Parker SF/PF
*****************************************************************************************************************************

Andrew Wiggins is a sure lock at the no1 pick in 2014. I believe along with many others that Julius Randle will take the no2 spot over Parker. He has good size and strength to play the PF position. Randle also has great range. Reminds me a lot of a Zach Randolph.

 

Assuming that Parker doesn't stay for a second year at Duke (praying), grabbing Parker at no3 is a blessing. He's the foundation piece this franchise has been looking for since it's existence. Parker quickly becomes the face of the Charlotte Hornets, and help change it's identity (Bobcats). I'd like to think that Parker can play the "2", but many believes he may end up being a 4 more than a 3 with his thick frame. Parker have draws many comparison to Carmelo Anthony. The kid is humble, smart/high IQ of the game, and nonetheless a hard worker. We quickly learned that GM Rich Cho has a philosophy of taking hard working players from great programs: Kemba UCONN (Jim Calhoun), Kidd-Gilchrist UK (John Calipari), and Cody Indiana (Tom Crean). Jabari Parker (Duke/Coach K) is a perfect match of Cho's vision.

It's time to put a end to this Bobcats way of thinking. We have to believe we will turn this franchise around. Lets talk about this season and not a draft that is another year away.SMH 

 

Lets talk about how Kemba beast Walker will be a allstar this year, and how MKG will become the NBA's top defender.

Yeah, if your not looking forward to next years draft you might want to check your pulse.

It could potentially be historic with the talent that could come out next year.

Add in the fact that if we hit our pick, that could potentially be the last lottery pick for us in a very long time.

Sorry if we don't get Wiggins it's not much to be excited about. Maybe we might get the #1 pick with us going back to the Hornets but I doubt it.

 

 

I'm excited about this year though.

There's 3-5 guys in this draft that you should be excited about, not just Wiggins. All of these guys have the potential to be franchise players. But, lets hope they don't pull a Shabazz.

I will be keeping up with CBB 24/7 this upcoming season, especially Duke, KU, and UK. I will CRY OF JOY or KILL someone in next year's lottery draft. Next year's NBA LOTTO DRAFT and the 2014 NBA DRAFT will have the highest ratings ever in the history of basketball.

This team has yet to get its franchise player so yes it all comes down to the 2014 draft...the whole reason for being as a struggling franchise.

You know what a franchise player is?

 

There are only 2 franchise players in the NBA today Lebron/Durant. Kobe/Duncan were franchise players but they are older now, so I want include them currently.

 

So you saying there will be 3-5 franchise players in that 1 draft? I give you Wiggins but the rest are not franchise players.

 

Franchise players currently.

1.Lebron

2.Durant

 

All Stars

1.Paul

2.Kobe

3.Rose(if healthy)

4.Parker

5.Dwight

6.Harden

7.Westbrook

8.Melo

9.Duncan

10.Love
