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.

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.

 

 

 

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

Gerald Henderson is a shooting guard. But can't shoot a lick. I'm done with him. Most inconsistent player I've ever rooted for.

Mike CAN score but he is not a SCORER. He has shown some good ball handling skills and has been outstanding on the fastbreak (I believe he had a coast-to-coast last night as well as led the fastbreak and dished it off for an assist). He's got a long way to go on his shot but until he gets it to a respectable level, he will have trouble getting in the paint, where he excels.

 

As for the free throws, he shot 75% last year- exactly what you were asking for. Last night he went 1-5 but that's a small sample size and I know at least 2 came immediately after a HARD foul that he hit the ground hard and had to walk off for a minute.

LOL man you people are hilarious. THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!

 

We are a bad team. Deal with it. 

 

I'm seeing some very insane things. Henderson can't shoot, MKG sucks and can't possibly get better, Taylor is the GOAT, Zeller sucks, etc. All too hilarious. 

 

Henderson had a bad game, but was a top 10 SG last season and averaged nearly 20 ppg after the All-Star break. He shot 44% from mid range (one of the best in the league), 33% from 3 (average), and 82% from the FT line. 

 

MKG is in his 2nd year and while he was disappointing last game he is still a top tier defensive player. 

 

Jeffery Taylor has shown me nothing that screams future starter. I like him and think that he will be a good role player in the future, maybe even as soon as this season, but MKG has been better than him. 

 

Zeller is a rookie who has played in one game...

 

Jesus people...

While I realize how people react and agree with a lot of what u say. I don't agree with Henderson. He is not a shooting guard. And is very mediocre. I want him to be good but he just isn't getting it done. To hear some people talk about this team and say we are fine at all positions is crazy. Some folks would be ok with mediocre team we have but I'm not.
Gerald Henderson isn't a top 10 sg in my eyes. Don't ask me to name 10 better ones. He might have been statistically better but stats aren't everything. I'm done with him. If he turns it around I will be happy to say I'm sorry Hendo. Until then gtfo

You don't like Henderson and I'm fine with that. Statistically he is a top 10 SG and that's not even counting defense. I'm also not sure what you mean by saying "if he turns it around"... bro he averaged nearly 20 ppg in the 2nd half of last season and carried us to a few victories. Sure, he probably isn't a starting caliber SG on a very good playoff team (unless you have a superstar big or a superstar small forward), but he's pretty damn good for now. I could understand if you said that you don't like him because he hasn't been consistent for an entire season. I would completely understand and agree with that. I won't attempt to persuade you though, because really only Hendo himself is capable of that.
