Users Draft Bobcats Pick Discussion

Alright guys, what's the general consensus?

For me it's Harrison Barnes or Thomas Robinson. They're the two that fit better to the Cats.

Leaning towards Barnes after his workout with Charlotte, was very positive .

like i said in the user mock

like i said in the user mock draft forum i think they should take barnes i love trob i think he will be very successful he also would step in and be the best player on the bobcats him and like 7 other players in this draft but for me its either barnes or mkg we NEED perimeter shooting we only avg 87 ppg on the flipside we gave up over 100 ppg and with mkg being such a great defender and fitting good into the 1-1-3 defense dunlap runs he would fit in perfect either one will be great choices but if its me i take barnes

Ya I would take MKG myself.

Ya I would take MKG myself. Even though he has some offensive shortcomings, MKG is a winner with a great set of intangibles. He provides great leadership and on ball defense which is definitely needed in Charlotte.

Robinson is the more likely pick IMO but Barnes could be a good fit as well. Tough call for MJ.

I agree with Barnes. I think

I agree with Barnes. I think that he's young enough and will develop alongside with the current guys. He hasnt quite shown everything he is capable of, can develop a great outside and inside game. One thing I liked was that he challenged Jordan to a shoot out when he was there. That's the competitiveness that Jordan would love .

i read that today also i like

i read that today also i like that kind of competitiveness i watched every bobcats game last year and there were only 3 players who showed heart and continued to compete and that was kemba bismack and gereld i think barnes would fit in perfect with that core of players and he works so hard on his game he will only get better

Alright then, let's lock it

Alright then, let's lock it in for the most part then. I'll work on a general statement for the draft and post it on here later.

The only answer is Barnes.

The only answer is Barnes. The defense Dunlap will run will hopefully create more turnovers and chaos for the opponents but Dunlap can't put the ball in the net for us. We need a go to scorer on the wing and Barnes to me is the best in this draft. MKG is a great defender and would thrive in the uptempo system but Barnes is a way better scorer and also a decent defender. With the right coach and some determination Barnes could become an above average defender but I don't ever see MKG becoming a good enough scorer to warrant that #2 selection. As far as T Rob he will no doubt be solid but the Cats need a potential star not a solid rotational player at the #2.

For the Charlotte Bobcats

For the Charlotte Bobcats there is no sure fire solution to fix their epidemic of problems. To determine their greatest need isn’t any easy task, with a multitude of issues contributing to the equal worst season record in NBA history. However, the most evident need is a scorer; evident through the highest scorer last season being Gerald Henderson, with a dismal 15.1 PPG.

The 6’8 Harrison Barnes fills that void and presents the Bobcats with a go to scorer for the future. His 17.3 points a game Barnes has proved he can score and do so in a variety of ways. His efficiency from outside and midrange is well documented, with a silky smooth and high release. If he can develop his ability to create his own shot then he will become a deadly scoring option in this league. We know he has the tools to achieve this, both in his offensive mechanics and his athleticism, which combined could result in an array of powerful and effective finishes.

Perhaps the most endearing trait I find in Harrison’s game is his attitude. This guy is a flat out competitor! He wants to work, he wants to improve and in the NBA there are plenty of people to assist him. The defensive scheme that the Bobcats new coach Dunlap has used throughout his career really supports Barnes’ game, giving him a setting that allows his offensive game to flourish.

During his workout with the Bobcats, Barnes impressed his potential new coach Dunlap through his ability to score and his athleticism. One point of interest was Barnes wanting to challenge Jordan to a shootout. It’s this competitive nature that Jordan embodied in his career and is a sought after trait by GM’s.

With the Bobcats looking to improve at every position Barnes is the best option. The young core of Barnes, Henderson, Walker and Biyombo is a player development coach’s dream, with each having certain traits that make up a solid team. If these abilities can be excavated and put into a team perspective then the Bobcats will most likely put their worst days well behind them.

Maybe two years, maybe three,

Maybe two years, maybe three, maybe five years from now. Or maybe even at the end of this season if the Lakers win their coveted 17th franchise world championship—though it's unlikely Bryant would miss out on a chance to break the Boston Celtics' NBA record for most titles.
