How Long Before Charlotte is a Legit Playoff contender

25 posts in this topic

Depends on what you mean by legit playoff contender.  In the current East, everybody can be a playoff contender.  To be the type of team that is going to make the playoffs year after year and play deep into May-June we still needs several pieces, including a legit superstar.  Unless someone decides to come here via FA, we need to draft him.  Hopefully the ping pong balls go our way for once.

I really want to know what the value is for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

Im not riding him off (I do see potential), but if we could really get a mid to high 1st for him, I would really pull the trigger. Add more picks to the draft so we can position ourselves to make some big moves in the draft.

Gordon Hayward is a RFA, but I think we could make a move for him this off season. He would be a huge upgrade right now over MKG.

Add Hendo to the question too. Whats his value?

 

Hendo's gotta go.  I don't mind losing MKG to be honest but it will be a little sad. I think MKG is a great team player but Chris Douglas Roberts is a better playmaker. 

 

What I really want is a good player maker (ie. superbn dribbling, above average passing).  he should be a slasher 60% to 70% of the time and most ideal if he is an awesome shooter.  i can live with it if he is not an awesome shooter because shooting is actually not a higher barrier thing in this league.  too many good shooters (spot up or in transition/off balance shot).  someone like john wall would be very awesome. 

 

a lot of people say Kemba is the guy and i can only agree to a certain extent.  IMO he is too small to be great.  We need great.  Kemba is somewhere past above average but not enough to be great.  so i don't mind trading Kemba if we can get someone more valuable.  heck i'd even take joe johnson for kemba even if joe is getting older.

If you mean legitimate NBA championship contenders, certainly not within the next decade. We would basically have to get a durant/howard/lebron level superstar in the draft, not merely an all-star caliber player which in itself we have been entirely incapable of doing.

yes i completely agree with you.  Right now I think Al Jefferson is arguably one of the superstars.  The team can prove this if they can build an efficient system around Al Jefferson as one of the core pieces.  Kemba is height limited to be another core piece unless he changes his style and play around Big Al instead of taking too many shots.  Kemba needs to focus more on getting assist than score. 

 

in general, team needs more ball motion on the offense.  look to make assist first and move without the ball, set screen, etc.
