I just like the idea of getting an established starter and high character guy for Charlotte. Here's the thing, if you pick Harrison Barnes and 3 years from now he's Marvin Williams, Noah's going look really good then, right?

Exactly.

Most people (especially on an internet forum) don't view the NBA draft in the proper light. They just assume these high picks are going to be good. Noah only averages 10-12 points a game, so they think he's not as good as a #2 overall pick. It's all black and white with a lot of people.

The Bobcats are tired over building their team through the draft lottery every year. That alone should tell people how risky the NBA draft is. Noah's a proven guy that has been on winning teams for years now, and he's still somewhat young. Charlotte is going to have to start adding veterans to make this thing work.
