Man, its way early to jump to conclusions, but I will say that his f'ed up rotations, our horrible offensive play, our inability to close out on shooters and get rebounds, and our overall suckass performance are all eerily similar to Dunlap.

That's because the cats don't have shooters to space the floor, any good rebounders % wise or good defenders in the paint. Not a bunch of talent on this team. Picking up Jefferson was a horrible move with what the cats needed to do to be successful in a few seasons.

It's also just the first game. Lol

Also, I'm slowly coming back full-circle to the fact that MKG was a wasted pick.

How would you know?

He gets about 2 minutes at a time and got called for a bullshit foul on a screen.

He's 1-6 from the field and made a few mistakes in a row before being put on the bench. Nothing major, but still.

Jefferson was the worst thing for this team lol all hes gonna do is take away shots from our young players. 4-17.

MKG does look like a bust. Like I said Stern absolutely robbed us on that one.

Mkg is also the bobcats best prospect talent wise and that includes Kemba.

Humiliating.

Even if the Rockets turn out to be good, when our biggest FA signing ever comes out and looks like that... that is inexcusable.

No. His shot is afflicted, and it's clear that it likely won't be fixed.

If he can't shoot, it doesn't matter hiw talented he is. His poo isn't a weakness, like it was for someone like Lebron who made a living driving in as well, it is COMPLETELY NON-EXISTENT. It's becoming more and more obvious with each and every game. He is a liability.

What did y'all expect? The cats are a bad team with very little talent and big deficiencies in shooting, rebounding and defensively in the block.

Even with his bad shot, he still fits the bill as the bobcats most talented prospect. It should tell you something about the teams overall talent level.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
