MJ/Cho just don't get it. If they trade away any picks in 2014, I give up. What's the point in making the playoffs? We have no chance to win a series. We have no star power. We make the playoffs because all the other GMs are in tank/rebuild mode. The East is terrible. A playoff team could have a losing record.
This isn't the NFL where you get a very good player every single year no matter where you draft. In the NFL a first round pick is very valuable because it's a guaranteed starter and very likely a Pro Bowl level talent. The NBA is different.
Hell, the #1 pick is never even a sure thing. It's pure luck. Unless you get a top pick when a LeBron/Durant type player comes out you are just going to get lucky and pick a guy that turns into a star or quality starter.
If you can get a very good player for a 1st rd pick, especially when you still have 1-2 additional 1st rd picks, pull the trigger. You get a proven quality player. Anyone drafted where the Bobcats will be picking is a complete crap shoot.
