That's all it is. Some people on here just want a UNC All-Star team.

Can we trade MKG for Barnes, and Taylor for Vince Carter? Maybe Biyombo for Davis? How about Cody Zeller for Tyler Zeller? And sign Kendall Marshall!!

Oh wait, don't forget trading Sessions & Henderson for a pick to be used on James Michael McAdoo, and try to get Hansbrough in exchange for McRoberts. THEN, the Hornets will be good.

 

Shut your crap.

You're taking yourself way, way too seriously. 

 

I'm not afraid to call out people who blur the lines between NCAA fan and NBA fan. Just because they went to UNC or their name is Myck Kabongo, doesn't mean they're better than every player the Bobcats/Hornets have on their roster. That includes Lawson as well.

Id trade MKG and the Portland or Detriot's pick. Im tired of being bottom of the rank. Id do anything for a player like Barnes. The only player for keeping and building this team with for next year is Al Jefferson. We can trade everyone else.


Id keep either Taylor or mkg. Kemba has shown he can score but can't run an offense that well. But to his defense he's never had any shooters or scoters around him. I mean Jefferson is the closest thing to a scorer he's ever had. And he's like a black hole sometimes on offense.

But if we was in the top 5 of the draft I wouldn't be afraid to draft a pg or any position. For instance, we just drafted zeller. We haven't seen a lot of him or seen what he's truly capable of. But if we have a chance to draft randle then u do it. Without even hesitating. Same thing goes with every position on this team. Get a franchise player no matter what position they play. I'm hoping to see quite a few trades this year around the deadline. Hopefully we can pick up some more 1st rounders.

I would trade MKG in a heartbeat. If you think you can get a good pick for him, do it. Why have a defensive-specialist SF who can't score more than 8-10 ppg, when you could go for a SF who could score 18-22 ppg and play defense? 

 

Since this whole board is basically a series of what-ifs, and it advocates go-for-broke style trades, why not?

I agree. I would trade him. But at the same time it scares me knowing what he can be. If he gets a jumpshot and gains confidence in his dribble and drive then he will be a better Paul George. That's the only thing.
But I would definitely trade him if the right offer came around. I wouldn't just dump him for hell of it. He does too many things well.

No one wants a damn unc team. You're speaking outta your ass just bc you don't agree with others. You're the one who is taking this way, way too serious.

Kabongo, Lawson or whoever it is, Kemba still hasn't prove that he's the long term answer. I still stand corrected.

MKG will never be anywhere close to Paul George. George is there with the like of a Tmac. I just don't see MKG ever developing a shot.

At this point we should just draft BPA, not need. I agree if Randle is there we have to take him. Doesn't matter who we have atm at PF.

Saying you "stand corrected" means you admit you were wrong, and I don't think you'd do that. 
 
Regardless, every player will have his haters. I think this board proves that.
 

This is Kemba's team, and I'm here to support him.


That's from an Observer story, btw.

Wrong on Kabongo, right on Kemba.

Lol. I don't think anyone, even MKG's biggest supporters, would not trade him for a SF who can score "18-22 ppg and play defense". Right now, there are two guys who fit those criteria (well...18+ PPG with great defense) in the NBA. Their names- Lebron James and Paul George.

 

SF's that play great defense and great offense don't just grow on trees. And you can't just trade (what you guys consider to be) garbage for one.

We should just run a combo of a UConn/UNC squad. Gay, Kemba, Barnes, Henson, Drummond, Carter, Allen, Bullock, Adrien, Lamb, Hansbrough, draft Shabazz & Hairston.

 

Super Bowl!!
