OOPPS! Spectre just posted this link. My bad. But it seems to me that Cho did the right thing. We would have had to draft T-Rob at #4, and it seems to me the FO was just not sold on him. Just like the Cavs. Interesting.
Hahah I thought I was in this thread when I posted that...good job Ohara!
There's too many threads on the same subject. What the hell are our mods doing?

2012 NBA season aka the Bobcats Blue Collar Comedy Basketball Tour....seriously though we do have alot of get on the floor, dive out of bounds, take a charge from Lebron at full speed type of guys. Atleast 4 of the starting 5....Tyrus is a possible. I take the back 3 out of 5...Bizzy B will just block it and yell out "Bismack smack ball".
If Thomas Robinson got drafted, people would have had a problem with that.. "oh, hes undersized.. Derrick Williams 2.0" or Barnes "Jordan picked him cause hes a Carolina guy.. hes an idiot" or Drummond " he shoots 29% from the ft line, hes lazy too" and they REALLY would have hated the Beal selection "who the fuck is he?!". Cant please people.
Give the kid a chance.. Kentucky played to win, not for stats. So, all their players on their team have not shown their full capabilities. MKG was their leader.. he was the leader on his h.s team also (that included kyrie irving),and both teams won championships..that gotta stand for something. They wanted him.. come to find out, the teams behind them wanted him too. Why trade for an extra pick if the man you really want will not be there by 4? I love the pick, by the way.. and they got a steal at #31 too.

The only bigger thing that could of really happened, was if Cho did take a punt and trade down for #4 and #24 (it was 24 from memory? not 100% sure). Only then would we have taken either T.Rob/Barnes and then PJIII. That would of been huge. However, they seem to have been completely sold on MKG and was rated extremely highly (by both Bobcats and Cavs)

I'm glad an article has came out this because I was telling a friend of mine who felt like the Cats shit the bed with the #2 pick, and not trading down to get MKG at 4, that I suspected all along the Cavs wanted MKG and were just playing up all the hype to try and get our #2 and take him.
We probably wanted a guarantee that they wouldn't pick him and it couldn't get one so decided on keeping the pick. Great job by Cho to get his man.
