Noel or Muhammad for our first pick. Not really interested in McLemore dude is a knucklehead wanksta
I prefer we go Noel if he's available because I think he has the highest upside. Noel should be able to get rebounds, block shots and get lots of Dunlaps favorite stat...deflections. Noel is still raw and won't immeadietly win a bunch of games for us.
Also, looking ahead to the 2014 draft, most of the top prospects are wings.
A future of
2 other 1st round picks from (PDX & Det)
Cap space to sign a vet post player with some gas left in the tank to show Biz & Noel some post moves.
would be incredible
Noel just went down with what appears to be a knee injury. Hopefully it isn't serious.
In Cho I Trust
Detroit's pick is ours this year if Detroit makes the playoffs basically (top 14 protected). It's only top 8 protected next year, and if we don't get their pick by then, Detroit has to get the first pick in the 2015 draft to keep it.
Portland's pick is ours this year if they make the playoffs or just barely miss it (top 12 protected, similar to our pick owed to Chicago). It's top 12 protected again in 2014 and 2015 and unprotected after that.
I think some people on here are seriously overvaluing biz and mully. If we ever assemble a championship roster in Charlotte those guys will be coming off the bench, not playing alongside any of these guys you're talking about. I think Muhammed has the most potential in this draft, but it's gonna be hard on our front office to pass on Bennett. He's tailor made for what we need right now. I'd love to take muhammed and package some combination of the portland pick,detroit pick,gordon's expiring, or even sessions to move up from 14 and get shabazz and anthony. If it's one or the other, i've have a hard time choosing. And hell no on noel! He's not a big enough upgrade over biz to burn the top pick in a draft on. It amazes me that that's not common sense to everyone o here.
Miami just won a title with Shane Battier's corpse and Mario Chalmers starting for them and the Lakers won multiple titles with Derek Fisher playing PG.
The best teams in the league start guys like Ronnie Brewer, Jason Kidd's corpse, Kendrick Perkins, Kirk Hinrich and Richard Hamilton's corpses, Lance Stephenson, Willie Green, Festus Ezeli, Mario Chalmers, and Udonis Haslem's corpse.
