this thread is going to either be relevant all year or be a hilarious bump from 10 pages back by the end of the year.
Some of you people crack me up.
Unless you can tell me which superstars are gonna come to Charlotte than the only way for us to be legit contenders is to suck balls and get multiple top 3 picks that we need to nail.
This stuff isnt rocket science.
The drafted Durant and Jeff in one draft...then Westbrook and Ibaka...then finally got Harden in the 3rd season...
Oh and about Durant , he averaged 21 ppg and "chucked" 17.8 shots a game...Which in his 5 years ranks as second lowest...So far this year (His 6th season) he's only taking 15 shots a game...
Even I have gone ahead and said MKG will be an All Star...but I'm going to say he is going to be better than Durant...that's just ridiculous..
And I'm not saying suck until we have multiple legends. I'm saying we're going to be better in the long run sucking until we get our centerpiece. That could be as soon as next year or longer. Who knows, but I know OKC is more valuable and marketable than one like Memphis or Indiana and has a much brighter future than any other team in the entire league. You'd be crazy to not want to be in their position
I'm still waiting for an example of this model ever actually succeeding. OKC did it the very best and its fringe contenders because Durant is a super superstar, TWolves stockpiled top picks forever now and they aren't contenders or future contenders most likely, Kings can't even become semi decent, Cavaliers have done it 2 years in a row now and they aren't any closer to being contenders. You don't need a lot of players, you need ONE player.
