Just read an interview with Rich Cho and he said that Kidd Gilchrist was selected with an eye towards the future. Guess this means we are eyeing a scorer at the top of next years draft. Shabazz Muhammad is looking real good right now in a Cats jersey in my mind. Any thoughts?
I agree. I was hoping the Bobcats were going to draft Barnes but MKG is a great pickup. Looking into the future the MKG pick makes sense. Especially if the Bobcats do happen to get Shabazz, those two would be a great duo in the future and compliment one another. Almost like what the Bobcats had 2 years ago in Stephen Jackson and Gerald Wallace but a younger and more athletic version. A great defender and all around player in MKG, and a great scorer in Shabazz.
Lmao i had a post about this earlier and got negged for saying that bobcats could get shabazz next year... smh people on this site. However that would be rediculous if that happened and then if someone can work out all of the kinks in mkg's offensive game they could be an exciting team to watch with that duo.
At this point the only keeper on the team is MKG...
I'm not sold on Kemba and Henderson for the future as well as Biyombo. My dream scenario would be they get Shabazz next year than in the 2014 draft they get Julius Randle.
That'd be a very explosive and exciting big three of MKG, Bazz, and Randle.
Kemba and Hendo will be very good as complimentary players and MKG will hopefullly be that defensive stopper on the perimeter that so many believe he will be. Byiombo showed promise and with lots more pt next year he will have a significant jump in his rebounding and blocked shots. Some people see him becoming the next Ibaka but I'm just hoping he's at least a Ben Wallace type. If we can let these guys grow together then bring in some alpha male types in the next two drafts I see us at least being consistantly competitive in 3-5 years.
Am I the only one that sees Kobe Bryant in Shabazz? They both have similar size and they were both very athletic coming out. I also see the competitive drive to be the best in Shabazz, and he takes/ can take over a game just like kobe can. Of course his offensive skillset is nowehere near where Kobe's is but I think Shabazz is the closest prospect to him in a long time...
