Ding, ding, ding!

 

He can play PF in spots, but he would get abused if played there regularly.

Another reason I would take Barnes over MKG he can play both sf and the pf position in spot minutes. 

 

MKG at this point is just a sf.

I agree, but I don't think I would've brought in Iggy though.  However, that perimeter D is going to be tough, with Iggy and Klay.

 

It wasnt like GSW were aiming for Iggy throughout the offseason. The addition was pretty much just adding more gold to the chest. They wanted to spend some money and bring in another guy "D12", and once he was gone they pulled the trigger on Iggy. Someone who can come right in and contribute. Barnes is still very young and only in his 2nd season. He would only benefit coming off the bench. It doesnt mean he was "bad".

Over the course of last season, Klay became the go to perimeter defender for the dubs, they used him a lot to guard primary ball handlers and creators, he did exactly what you ask your players do, made them shoot contested jumpers.

 

Golden State actually had a chance against SA, who guarded Parker most of the time, you guessed it, Klay, and he made him shoot contested jumpers.  He has great length, and quick feet.

Let's just hope that MKG can put it all together with the addition of Mark Price. We have a bright future ahead of us if our young guys can grow quickly with Al Jefferson. The sky is the limit. It's going to be fun to see these guys reach their potentials.

You just threw Barnes in a similar role as Carmelo and Lebron.

Have you seen Barnes skill set and body type?

Barnes will not have the floor game Lebron has and Carmelo was light years ahead of Barnes was coming out of college in terms of having a complete offensive game. Carmelo has since shapened that jumpshot but has the ability to CONSISTANTLY drive past defenders...


Jai look out...thay are afraid you just jumped off the Barnes will make the Hornets regret things! Support..therefore your knowledge of basketball will be all gone.

MKG is 19 years old. 19. I'm ok with where he's headed.

Lol, yall are funny.  At the end of the day, it's all opinions and perspectives.  None of us are right or wrong, its just how we perceive what we see.

 

No worries if someone doesn't agree with my opinion, doesn't offend me at all, nor should it any of you.

 

My background and pedigree in sports, as well, as playing myself, has formed and shaped my opinions.

MKG can swing to SG and defend well just like Paul George can.
