I hate to burst y'all's bubbles but people get too caught up in players' potential (myself included) and don't look at what is actually there. Don't forget that at one time Ellington and Henderson had a ton of potential and could become great. However, they both settled into their roles as a spot up shooter (Ellington) and an athletic defender/mid-range shooter/occasional 3 pt shooter (Henderson). IMO, this is all that those two will likely become. I just don't like Bazz and don't think he'll be very good.
Speaking of McLemore, a crazy article on him in USA Today
I guess if LB saw something in him, we should really be skeptical.
In all seriousness, what a sad life he's had. It's great that he's overcome it. I'll be routing for him even if he's not a Bobcat.
Shabazz is the best scorer from this draft class....he can score the ball in literally every way...but if im drafting my big board for this team would probably go 1.bazz 2.Smart to play SG or Noel and 3. Mclemore
Like most everybody else in this class, he shouldn't be a starter in the NBA next year, but I'd love him to be our pick and start because he will become at worst a solid NBA 2 with a higher ceiling than Henderson Jr, and it will keep us in the Wiggins and Parker sweepstakes.
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
