Wonder when the NBA will finally do some things to favor Charlotte?
Are you leading the lee harvey oswald conspiracy theory about how its rigged? I knew eventually someone would start spewing that.....lol

Eventually? You asked me who would win the lottery and I had to be 100% sure. I said New Orleans... everyone said New Orleans. All they have to do is show it. But I guess that's much harder to do in the internet age.

Well looks like Thomas Robinson may be out of the picture. That dude only measured 6’8 at the combine. SMDH!! Just about every site had him at 6’10. Kansas was fudging his number like crazy. MKG and Bradley Beal both had great measurements. MKG is 6’7 like reported, and he had the wing span of a 7’0’er. Beal was actually taller than most thought, he’s 6’4 while all the scouts thought he was only 6’3. Florida apparently hadn’t updated his measurements.

he actually came in at 6'-8 3/4" with a wing span of 7'-3"

I'm not sure if he is a potential star though... I think the Bobcats need to draft the best player available which is tough at #2.

Yeah, there are all kinds of conflicting stories online about rather his height is a dissapointment or not. Some say yes, others say no. I think the no's are fans of his. Because most super star power forwards in the league are a solid 6'9 at the least, most are taller. I was excited when I thought this guy might be our Josh Smith or Blake Griffin, but now it looks like he's closer in size to Elton Brand with not nearly the handle of the ball that guy has.

So.. he's taller than the others, but still a problem. Lol.

At that height ^.. it's an inch. Come on. He's definitely a rising star great player and super motivated. He came SO far in a short amount of time at Kansas. And yes, I am a fan.

He's taller than MKG and Beal, but uhhhhh, those guys don't play power foward LOL. I wouldn't be opposed to them drafting Robinson. I sincerly hope he does come into the league and becomes and exciting Blake Griffin type player. He has that type of potential supposedly. Only time will tell.
