MJ should pick Adam Morrison at #3 for the Cats
 
Seeing him play, at the very least he won't turn out to be like Kwame Brown. You don't have to wait 15 years to see the guy develop. The cats have a good draft pick and some cap space. Start with picking Morrison at 3.

I think Jordan is only a major stockholder and is not directly involved with the basketball operations of the team

Spike Spiegel 06-16-2006 11:29 PM

WHoever's making the decision, I agree that Morrison should be their pick.

Gerald Wallace off the bench would be sick.

Based on the other talent on the team, sounds like a good pick. Work well with Okafor, May, and Felton....make it happen....

in the end, the Cats are gonna need a good coach to teach them how to close out games.


from what I ahve seen, Cats play for 40 minutes a game then whimper the rest..

Larry Brown's ready to leave New York. That would be a good choice, since he's probably the best coach for a young developing club!

why not start wallace and morrison? i wouldnt mind seeing morrison at sg... the option seems to be starting felton and knight, so id rather see felton - morrison - wallace.

and you're right about the coach. im not sure bickerstaff can provide this team the strong coaching that they'll need to succeed. and another major factor for these young bobcats is health, just ask okafor.

oh, and just don't let jordan make the pick. he already proved to suck at that.

agreed...Bobcats wouldve been in the playoffs if they couldve closed out 70-80% of their games

Cats should get Roy

Felton
Roy
Wallace
Okafor

Thats a good young core. Roy fits every need they have and lets Wallace play his natural position.

Jordan shouldn't be allowed to be involved in personnel decisions.

He traded away Rip.
He drafted Kwame.
He declined to trade away the No. 1 pick for Elton Brand.
He gave Christian Laettner a huge contract extension.

Terrible GM.

Hey it works for MJ.

If it fails, it's the teams managements fault
If it works, Jordan gets the credit.

Are you a longtime bobcat fan that you feel so strongly about it all of a sudden?


Quote:

He traded away Rip.
Rip was a shooter who was asking for a big contract extension, jordan the gm was active as a player on the team and also a shooter (by that point). They wanted a guy who could break down defenses.


Quote:

He drafted Kwame.
Bad mistake here yes. But kwame lied to him promising all these intangibles he supposedly had, when infact he improved on very little and followed up with little work ethic.

Quote:

Lots of people passed on Brand. Hell, bulls let him go AFTER seein him play!

Quote:

This was a fine decision by me

You forget Jordan also got rid of wizards hopeless salary cap situation freeing up contracts of Juwan Howard and Rod Strickland, allowing them salary cap room they could later on use (and did). And he got doug collins to come coach for them. Plus he made wizards a national team and financially turned the team into making profit. Jordan's tenure with wizards was failure only in terms of EXPECTATIONS. On balance, that organization was in better shape both basketballwise and financially in 2003 than they were in 2000 when they won 19 games and drew flies.

hawkfan 06-17-2006 02:02 AM

The Wizards got good when Grunfeld took over, who is a very smart basketball guy.

MJ was bad with personnel decisions, was toxic in the lockerroom, backstabbed the front office, and badmouthed his own boss (the owner).

Trading away Juwann Howard wasn't nearly that hard because Cuban and Nelson were in free spending mode and had some bad contracts to swap out.

Trading Rip was a big mistake.

Using the Chicago argument as support on why not to trade the No. 1 pick for Brand is a stupid argument.

A trio of Brand, Rip and Jordan would have made the playoffs.

A good move he did make, which you didn't mention, was signing Larry Hughes.

He's like McHale - a great player, but a bad GM.

That wouldn't happen.

SG- Gerald Wallace
SF- Adam Morrison

as interchangables is far more likely.
