YOLO!

The mistake that will come back to haunt us MKG over Barnes?

224 posts in this topic

Look at the roster Barnes has around him and look at the roster MKG has around him. That makes the biggest difference of anything. Everything else goes out the door. Not to mention the shitty coaching/lack of mentoring MKG had last year. It was impossible for a 18 year old and he did damn well

 

It doesnt matter. If someone can BALL, they can demonstrate that they can BALL on a good or bad team. Man among boys; i.e. Andre Drummond in summer league. I love MKG very much and was the one vouching for him to be the no.2 pick in the 2012 draft, but Jeff Taylor looked way much better than MKG in Summer League. MKG looked like the 31st pick.

 

 

I love MKG and really hope he will reach his "potential" sooner than later, but if I have to go back to last year draft I wouldn't hesitate to take Barnes over MKG excluding Drummond in this case.

Wrong Again!

 

MKG has more freedom as he is playing with lesser talent, he can get more shots on this team. If we had Barnes on our team last year he would probably be our leading scorer.

Barnes does not impact the game like MKG can in terms of defense, bball IQ even passing.

Sure his jumper is better but his off dribble drive is still stiff and unnatural.

Barnes should be a better scorer than MKG and this was expected in the draft.

Barnes ceiling is a Sean Elliot type guy. MKG ceiling is Scottie Pippen(who could not shoot till season 3) impacts.

In the regular season Barnes was lost in the offense and a lesser scorer. Sure he had a decent playoffs but that is what his supporters are basing the comparison on.

I was watching the USA blue/white scrimmage and HB and MKG had about the same impact on the game, and they both got their points in a similar fashion... I think what has and will separate them is their shooting.

I admit, I wasn't high on Barnes coming out because he didn't really show the ability to create off the dribble in college, and i wanted him to do well becauee I went to school with him. After one year, I'm leaning towards saying that I wish we would've picked HB, but if MKG develops a competent shot, I think it will be a wash.

 

I agree with everything you said, except on it being a wash if MKG puts it all together.

Let's say MKG do put it all together in the future, at best he's a better Gerald Wallace or best case scenario Andre Igoudala while Barnes is closer to a Paul Pierce. I'm a huge fan of MKG even when he was at UK, but with what I've seen from both of their careers throughout college till now I believe that Barnes will have a better NBA career and be a better player.

MKG if developed a jumper would be a better overall player than Barnes. But, that doesnt mean he will be the better player. It's like saying Paul George is the better player over Carmelo Anthony.

 

Barnes ceiling is Paul Pierce. MKG is Iggy, my god not Pippen. Before the draft he was gaining some comparison to Pippen, but after seeing him first hand in the pro level as a Cats fan, Im not dumb enough to put him on the same level as Pippen ever again.

You were also the one that thought Noel was the same type player at Anthony Davis.
