Al Jefferson Signs for 3 years, $40.5 million

127 posts in this topic

Expect to be really bad defensively, probably worst then last year. Zeller and Jefferson would be the worst front court defensively in the NBA, but have some serious scoring pop at a decently effective level. While playing Bismack, Jefferson and MKG at the same time would leave no floor spacing at all for Jefferson to work in. So either MKG gets traded for someone that can stretch the floor or the Bobcats will run with MKG, Zeller and Jefferson as the starting front court.

Just because Zeller doesn't block a lot of shots doesn't mean he can't defend.

In college he was pretty effective hedging ball screens. He moves his feet very well and is usually in good position. He may be able to get backed down on the block but so few 4s in the NBA are back to the basket guys anymore.

Tanking over a bunch of guys who haven;t played real competition is stupid.

 

Harrison Barnes was supposed the be the best high school player since Lebron James also.  He was so highly thought of that he was a preseason 1st team  college all-american before he had ever played one game.

 

How many of you would tank a season to try and get Harrison Barnes (who is a good player BTW)?

 

Hopefully no one.

 

 

I thought barnes was better than mgk then and i think he is better than now.

Jefferson and Zeller are not as bad of defenders as everyone is making them out to be....

 

Jefferson is a decent on ball defender that struggles in help defense, I'm ok with that. 

 

Zeller is an excellent athlete, just because you don't block shots doesn't mean you are a bad defender

The better scorer only avg. .2 more then the guy who couldn't shoot. While MKG was better in every other category.

 

Plus MKG had more 20 point games while playing in 8 less games.

 

So maybe you need to rethink your statement.

Nah, I've been hating on it since it was announced the Bobcats were interested. Just think it's the wrong year to add Salary to a below average team. I understand why the Bobcats made the move, but I think it was possible to wait till next year to make the major FA moves.

You have to build a team gradually. You just cant built it all at once except if you're the you know Big Markets (Miami/Brooklyn/etc). Rome wasn't built in one day. Lol

Probably the best thing ever came out of you. Kudo

But it's more like this:

(1) Hibbert

(2) Noah

(3) Horford

(4) Jefferson

(5) Lopez

    • I would be more than happy with a battle of the Carolinas for the title (if for no other reason than it means we got by UK and KU). Please beat Florida for me.  I am sick of hearing about them.
    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
