Charlotte Bobcats Need to Draft a Star?
The Charlotte Bobcats have solid players in Gerald Henderson, D.J. Augustin and Ben Gordon, and they have players who will become solid in Bismack Biyombo and Kemba Walker.
They don’t have a star. They don’t have anybody who can lead them and lift them and, when nothing else works, save them. They need to parlay the second pick in Thursday’s NBA draft into a star.
I see two obvious candidates: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and, after him, Bradley Beal.
I’ve written glowingly about Kidd-Gilchrist so many times that I feel like a member of the MKG fan club. I don’t join clubs. So I’ll be an honorary member.
