MKG looks like he could easily be an 18ppg scorer with no jumpshot at all
and almost everyone learns a jumpshot eventually, except Josh Smith
even Gerald Wallace who was ridiculously more raw than MKG became a solid shooting threat and he doesnt even work that hard in the offseason iirc
Lillard I feel is a lot like Nick Young.
Pure scorers, atrocious on D and thus they look good and flashy, one in which this league falls in love with because he can put up big numbers.
MKG is one of those guys who I feel might never be a superstar, but he'll still become damn good.
He fits the typical Bobcats system also, blue collared scrappers who every night come in for a big fight, ready to do the little things to win, tough on defense.
Honestly, I think of MKG in four to five years and Pippen just comes up. I don't really care that everyone has already made the assumption of Pippen, but honestly I can see MKG becoming even a rich man's Iggy.
His speed, poise, Basketball IQ, defense, and his willingness to do anything and everything to help the Bobcats wins means he's already a total package. Offense can be taught, that kid's heart can't.
Also helps that the kid is only 19, he is the foundation of the new core of Bobcats. He will epitomise everything about this team.
Proud Australian Bobcats Fan!!!
You can't be serious. Does "defense wins championships" ring a bell?MKG is a better rebounder and defender. Those types are not a hot commodity imo.
MKG is showing himself to be the most complete player in the draft not named Anthony Davis. Not bad considering he's almost three years younger than LillardMKG is a very nice prospect but as I mentioned he needs to improve some stuff to get to the nxt level.
We had / have Kemba so drafting Lillard would not have been smart.
We made a solid choice with MKG considering what was available.

Lillard is worse than Kyrie on D. That's saying a lot.
You need more than defense. At the end of the day you gotta "out score" your opponent.You can't be serious. Does "defense wins championships" ring a bell?
MKG is a nice prospect but has a ways to go. Lillard is the better and more complete player right now.MKG is showing himself to be the most complete player in the draft not named Anthony Davis. Not bad considering he's almost three years younger than Lillard
Is that you, D'Antoni?You need more than defense. At the end of the day you gotta "out score" your opponent.
Is he better now? Sure. He's much older. Is he more complete? Hardly.MKG is a nice prospect but has a ways to go. Lillard is the better and more complete player right now.
MKG needs to improve his shooting, ball handling, offensive prowess / scoring, staying out of foul trouble. MKG is more complete how?
Common sense. The game is to out score your opponent, not out defend them.Is that you, D'Antoni?
Lillard is the better player now and will be 3 years from now. Ill bookmark this thread for you.Is he better now? Sure. He's much older. Is he more complete? Hardly.
