No way would I change our pick and take Beal over MKG right now...it's not even close for me.
I see everyone talking about Beal's 19 ppg but, as pointed out, he is taking a ton of shots to get it done and he is not in the class of MKG from a defensive standpoint.
Can you imagine Beal trying to lock down Carmelo?
Have patience with MKG. I promise you, he has the potential to be an incredible long term piece for our franchise.
In Cho I Trust!
Why is it ever freaking player on another team is a all star . And ever player we have is a freaking scrub. People we playing 500 ball . Wait you going to say now we to good ?
Agree with dav7z here. We are 4-4 right now, DESPITE shooting poorly. I don't think these guys shoot those percentages over the whole season. There are any number of factors for starting out shooting that bad (young players, new coach/system, incorporating new guys, etc). Once they get a little more comfortable, the percentages should go up some, then who knows.
As our records have shown the last couple years, we've been missing quite a few pieces. That list has gotten shorter, but we all know there is more work to be done. The team we have now though is still great to watch.
I think there is a general perception that shooters are a dime a dozen and you can always find one, but it's not that easy to find ones that aren't one dimensional (e.g. Ben Gordon) We recently had a thread talking about the dearth of talent at the 2-guard position. I agree with that and believe that's why we should have placed a higher priority on addressing that need. For whatever reason we've chosen not to. I hope these decisions prove to be good ones.
Last season we addressed the #4 , We had B Mullens starting . We didn't even pick up McBOB til late . Even now no one considers Mc. B. long term . We addressed our biggest need a p/f in a week draft . With CHO knowing exactly what;s coming out in 2014. A possible 3 picks and a strong core , cap space , tons of free agents . It's tons of options in 2014 . So lets not limit our self to just a draft pick. It's a chance we could make a run in 2014. We added big Al for some reason .
Going way off the page but how would signing L James along with our core of Kemba , MKG , AL , Zeller , Hendo, Taylor , Biz , and three first round picks look . Think they could make a run? With Bens contract and Sessions contract that's 18 million MJ could offer . And still not hit lux. tax .

No big time all star is coming to Cha with maybe the exception of CP3 or Curry and even they are stretches.
