gm in potty training (04-07-2013)
This game showed its not just star players that get calls, but that the networks' marquee teams can get away with murder. Hendo should've gone off Rasheed Wallace style, and I wouldn't have blamed him for pulling a Sprewell. There was a sequence of three straight drives where he got knocked to the floor with the refs just staring at him like he's tripping himself every time. Here's a video of one of the non calls, for those that didn't get to see how bad it was:
gm in potty training (04-07-2013)
I understand that Gerald Henderson has had some decent games recently but i do not see him as the future. He is a mid range jump shooter who not all that great in isolation. If we are not able to get Noel, I would like for us to get Victor Oladipo at SG. He has the ability to be an elite slasher type and defender. With him and MKG, we could have the best defensive wings in the league in the near future.
Here is my rebuttal to this (backing it up with a in-depth response)
[QUOTE=gm in training;241028]my response to the post below
our pg,sg,sf is set for the next 8-10 years , so we should focus on strengthening our bench and our frontcourt. everyone knows that i feel hendo is getting paid at least 10 mil this offseason and i strongly feel he will stay a bobcat because he's a great player and he wants to be bobcat which speaks volume about his character ( cough,cough lebron!! lol) for not bailing on the team. kemba we all know is our franchise point and mkg looks like a bonafide starter .i think mkg could of been the rookie of the year candidate if he would of least avg 30+ min this year . mkg could of avg something like 13 pts , 8.5 rebs, 2.0 ast and maybe 1.8 blocks if given quality mins. if this was a video game i would rate his med at a 80 rite now. mkg been solid from med range for at least 2 months now .
agreed with most of this but by 2k standards no way MKG can have an 80. that's implying he is a very above average mid range shooter and he is just not consistent enough to be called that. i think a 72 is more realistic.
i feel sessions will be the one to go between him and gordon because he's younger , and cap friendly . pargo may make both of them expendable but i think it would be hard to move gordon unless someone amnesties him . jeff taylor is a good role player but his min will be greatly decreased unless dunlap will be open to playing mkg at pf more but even then hendo plays about half of his min at sf. mcroberts i think earned him an starting role at pf next year because he's an player who makes teams better with hustle and passing.
Depending on what we do in FA i would agree with this, except all of this coaching nonsense we have with guys playing big to get Taylor minutes. no need to risk other players progression for Jeff.
please no guards or swingman. chris anderson just burnt us . we gotta draft an future big, because biz is not the answer. i strongly feel jordan wants to win and we do not have time to develop biz , when we could find a player who already surpasses him in talent . if possible we should draft noel , he's like 215 but i think if we keep him at 228 he can retain his athleticism .
How do we not have time to develop Biz? we have all the time in the world because were not even close to being truly competitive, and you act like Noel isn't a project when he is nearly the definition of the word. Also Biz had a line of 10-10 and 5 blocks against BRKL so.... also where would you like to move biz?
this could make or break our team next year. we should focus our whole offseason in courting jefferson. smith is cool but mkg is already in that mold already. jefferson would open up the playbook and would make eveything more simple for our offense. jefferson is also an great post defender . al is only 28 and big man can play at a high level till 35 so an muti-year contract shouldn't hurt us especially if we front load the contract
No way should we blow our cap on a max (or near max) for Al Jefferson. he is no dominant post defender (1.1 BPG) but is a nice offensiv eplayer not great though. i think it would be more realistic to target a decent big like Hickson, ivan johnson, earl clark, speights, splitter. some of these guys may not be on the market then but there options.
dont forget we neeeed to grab a nice pick in the 2014 draft so we dont need to snag a top FA till then.
We need a big man BADLY. The guards this year are really weird because they have tons of flaws. We need to draft Noel badly. Biz cannot play the whole game.
I don't want to deflect from Bobcats' Baseline but I was curious on what you guys thought of his offseason moves ideas?

I kind of like it. I don't know that we can get his FAs as cheaply as he thinks but I also think McBob will come cheaper than he's projecting.

I really like Hickson, but don't know if he fits this team. I just think a Hickson, Biyombo, Mcroberts, Bennett rotation is too small... I'm not saying small teams can't be successful (see Miami and Knicks) but our roster doesn't work very well with small ball as you have seen Ll year.
I also think Mcroberts could come cheaper.
