Really starting to think the big guy wiseman could be a great fit for us

and yes we do need more scorers 

nightmares of Kemba slicing through a double team and drawing the other team's Big and then Kemba dishing it to a wide open Biz under the basket, only to see the perfect pass bobbled and turned over.. :crying:

Wiseman has excellent hands and catches everything.. scouts point to his weaknesses but to me there is nothing glaring. All his "weaknesses" are things a rookie college player never possess anyways and can be taught with time:
1) passing - we don't need him to be Nikola Jokic, we need him to be a young Dwight Howard..
2) post moves - well developed centers with post moves are not around anymore, let alone a rookie coming out of college..
3) defensive awareness - he's an elite level rim protector with AD length.. he has the ability to grow into an amazing defender
4) lower body strength - he's young and hasn't filled out yet.. he has the frame and 'dawg' in him to put in the work.. smart kid too

Kind of like Kemba did last night...he has been sensational for the Celtics

Bam saved the game last night for the heat....rim protectors are valuable...wiseman may be the real deal

Okongwu is probably a better comparison to Bam than Wiseman.

i think that is a solid comparison..

i think Wiseman compares more to AD..

I’m not sure if Wiseman can become a great of a shooter as AD. Think more of a poor man Chris Bosh if Wiseman ever reaches his ceiling. 

At this point, we have to hope that. LOL.

Sensational? He's been good, not great. 

He fell off big time late in raptors series...looked like his legs just gave out, his shots were not falling and he seemed a step slow

raptors series took it all out of the Celtics....and Tatum was never the same after bam rejected him

Both bam and AD are really, really good...if wiseman comes close to them, we will get a great player if we take him

Some of the stuff our fanbase has killed the Hornets for lately, has actually worked out. Granted, not as good as other players we could've gotten but better than expected.

Drafting Bridges, he's good, not MPJ, but he's good. 

PJ Washington was damn good last year.

Letting Kemba go, DeVonte Graham isn't as good but could get there and we had basically the same record without Kemba.

Mitch hasn't done a bad job so far.

I don't see how we don't take him if he's there. He's exactly what we've been clamoring for for over 5 years now.

They gave MKG forever to show up. I'd be mad if they gave up on Malik Monk.

Great point

Because its the Hornets and they have a history of drafting players that don't make sense
