I have no problem in Hendo being the guy to sit either... at least MKG still gives us the allusion that he can improve b/c he's so young. Hendo, on the other hand, does not.

My point was Jeff provides much more offensively than either of them, and that's what we need. Jeff also has shown the propensity to play the passing lanes extremely well.

I was just frustrated with the loss and MKG's struggles from the field and the FT line were an easy target. I didn't want to pick him when we did, but I grew to trust the pick and to believe he would grow into a Scottie Pippen-type player... but, he is so far from that right now, it's pathetic.


IMO MKG has a problem that I deal with. Now before anyone tries to act like I'm calling myself MKG I'm def not.
But anyways when I would play I would always be hesitant. I got great dribble moves but only when I'm not nervous or anxious. Same thing goes with my shot. That's exactly looks like whats up with MKG. He doesn't have any confidence is dribble and shot. U can tell when he gets it passed off to him... dribbles one step and immediately passes. He's so eager to get rid of the ball.
I knew coming out of college he had anxiety issues with speech and what not. Idk if this correlates with his play but it's like he's nervous or just dosent trust himself at all.

Now with Hendo I'm just aggravated. He is not the answer. He just isn't. He will be a good bench guy when we trade or draft for his replacement. That's all I got to say about him

Between Henderson heaving the ball at the basket without looking and MKG having the shooting form of a 12 year old, it was a hard game to watch.

MKG is really good at posting up. He made a nice move last night that he put up and went off the back of the rim. IMO, he needs more of those looks. Just like big Al, we need to feed MKG the ball in the post and let him back his man down more. However, teams can pack the paint when he has the ball because they know he won't shoot and he has nobody to pass the ball to who can shoot. Jeff Taylor helps this problem.

 

The problem with MKG from a fan's perspective is that he is not a scorer. We are so desperate to have a scorer and MKG was such a high pick that he becomes the scapegoat. If we have more scorers on the court, MKG because a valuable asset. Right now, he appears to be a liability (to fans) because he adds to the scoring problem.

 

IMO, We need someone who can create his own shot at the 2 spot. Hendo has shown he can do it at times, but disappears often of takes incredibly difficult, low-percentage shots. Taylor has the skill to do it (evidence in summer league, Eurobasket, and preseason) but seems to struggle with his confidence/self esteem in games.

I like MKG but he should develop off the bench like if he played for a good team.

Anytime you only get 7 points from your last two top draft picks...and you aren't the Heat....you lose.    Cody will look good in exhibitions when guys aren't playing hard....but he's a 7 point 4 rebound guy in this league I fear.   Jefferson showed why the Bobcats were able to get him last night.  MKG is a 12 minute a game guy for a play off team.  I honestly don't know of a guy on the team that could be built around or that attracts fans.  The Jordan saga in management continues.

 

God...I hope I am wrong.  Some of the best experiences I've had were at Hornets games back in the eighties and nineties.

Let's not forget that the Rockets are probably a top 5 team in the league this year.

should have drafted Barnes.. but I still think MKG can become better though..

 

the real question is why are we not all bashing Jefferson's horrible shooting night.. Hendo will probably go off for 20 pts next game BTW

Because Al hasn't been playing and is still nursing the ankle I believe.  You know he'll be fine though.

I'm done with the excuses. Especially the "MKG is still only 20". Cut the crap. Either you can ball or you cant. Right now, MKG cant.

MKG is a scorer, not a shooter. He lived off scoring through the lanes at UK. I know that MKG is still trying to develop a shot, but if anything he should be able to score 12-15 ppg alone anyway without having a shot. That's my problem with him. We drafted him knowing that he didnt have a jumper, but knew that he was a good scorer by crashing the glass, cutting off the ball, in transition, etc. Where in the hell did all that go? Someone needs to tell me!

 

MKG was supposed to be a very advanced ball handler and made 75% of his FT attempts at UK too. Hasnt seen that.

 

I really am starting to think that the real problems with him is due to Mike Dunlap/coaching staffs and us throwing him to the wolves too early. I mean there was a report that MKG called Coach Cal multiples times saying he made a big mistake by leaving UK after one year!!!

then he shouldn't have chucked up 19 shots.. I know, im not mad.. he will get better and into playing shape. Right now he said he is not in playing shape.

 

Zeller and Taylor were 1-6.. Al was 6-19.. Hendo was 5-16.. Sessions was 5-11 and Walker was only 5-10

 

can't put the loss on Hendo's bad night shooting. everyone stank it up
