That's a good point, but consider this: if Barnes doesn't develop a handle and a better attacking game, he becomes a shooting specialist. If MKG doesn't develop a shot, he still could be an all NBA defender that still gives you buckets off transition and hustle.2) Everyone is talking about the risks with taking Barnes but what about the risks with MKG? What if he never develops that offensive versatility that we desperately need? Do you really want to use the #2 pick in the draft to acquire a defensive specialist that can only score in transition? We need more then someone with a "winner's mentality". We need someone who's has the skills to go out there and do it no matter the mentality. If we want to go safe, we go Robinson. If we want to go risk/reward. We go Barnes. MKG is just not for us.
I still don't know which one I'd want, but I'm still leaning towards MKG.
