I don't have a problem with drafting Barnes. Just don't think he's worth the second pick
A) Drop out of society, go "off the grid", grow a really long beard, and begin studying sacred scriptures in a cave somewhere to find meaning.
B) Remain in society, but simply leave bobcatsplanet for good.
C) Something to do with ammo, and I'm not talking about Morrison.....
D) Spend ten days in depression, and then re-emerge with the eternal, dogged, illogical hope that all of us Bobcat fans carry: that someday, somehow, Charlotte will have a perennial NBA winner.....
E) Reasses Barnes's game and find glimmers of hope that he missed the first time around...(Yeah, right)
How high would you take him? If we picked him at 2 would you consider option A? Not that I personally would want you to....
A couple of things:
1. I think you could justify him being picked second. You could make a case for Davis, Robinson, Beal, Gilchrist, Barnes, Lamb, Harkless, and maybe Waiters/White going second, so I'm not going to to worry about it too much.
2. I've made it known Lamb would be my choice if I were Cho, but I honestly don't care who we pick. Regardless of who it is, they'll likely make the team better and that's all that matters
3. I will never, ever take anything related to the NBA or basketball in general so seriously that I'd be overly pissed if something happened. Trade for Diop? Life goes on. Pick a bust? Life goes on. Worst record ever? Life goes on. Too many people take what's going on with the team way too seriously
I've made my "rankings" before, but they're constantly changing and this is where I'm sitting right now, assuming we have the second pick and Davis is gone.
So I guess you could say I value him around the 5-7th overall selection
In Cho I Trust
Can't believe Lamb's slipped in so many peoples eyes he was a consensus top-5 pick pre season and 3rd on most mocks
In Cho we trust
I feel where you are coming from Swedd when you put Lamb at the top. He is the guy that you expect to help the team the most. Some people are just to worried about reaching for a player that they feel that they HAVE to choose from a group of 3-4 people.
As of right now...my top 5 w/o AD is.....
1. Thomas Robinson
2. Harrison Barnes
3. Bradley Beal
5. Andre Drummond
