    Wow fantastic read L-Train. I am aboard the MKG train. I really believe that when it comes down to winning time you need high-quality leaders if your team will ever reach their potential.

    You need guys that will set an example and also hold other players to a higher standard. Derek Fisher is doing so for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

    We are ready know that Alonzo is a hard worker, same with Tristan and Andy. We have an emerging young superstar closer in Kyrie who also seems like an incredibly smart, hard working talent. If we end up drafting Mike the butterfly effect could spread to any and all players that we draft in the future. Let that sink in for a minute.

    That means that all the young and impressionable rookies that we bring in from this point out will have an extremely strong mentorship group that will not let them coast in the NBA. This eventually could end up helping the young guns realize their true potential. That type of wisdom and leadership simply is invaluable.

    What is crazy about Mike is that you just don't know what kind of player he could eventually work himself into. Even with that broken jumpshot now, with his work ethic! I have no doubt in my mind that he will improve that. He also seems like a quiet kid that is not all about buying Rolls-Royce's and hanging out in the strip clubs all the time. He genuinely gives a fuck about the game of basketball and not the lifestyle of the NBA, which is sadly all the norm these days. I'd draft a guy based solely off that fact because for every Ray Allen you have 50 Nick Young's.

    I see a little prime time Shawn Marion, some Bruce Bowen and a little Dennis Rodman in Gilchrist. He's going to be fantastic. Not flashy, but his intangibles and heart are off the charts.

    I want him. I don't care if the Cavs have to trade Varejao, Gee, and their pick just to get the #2. I want this kid playing for the Cavs (unless, of course, the Cavs land the #1 spot).

    MKG is going to be a unique player. Still a bit concerned about the ability to shoot from the outside.

    I've seen MKG listed at 232 lbs, but that's supposedly 5 lbs heavier than Tristan Thompson and 2 inches shorter. Look at pictures of these guys, there's no way MKG is 232 if Tristan is 227. MKG does play like he's 230 though.

    that article single-handedly jumped MKG above Beal for me

    We already knew that he was grounded, was a hard worker, and that he is Kyrie's freind/high school teammate. Those three things lead me to believe that he should e the 2nd pick regardless of who has the 2nd. He and Davis are the only two I would take over Drummond.

    I said long ago I think this kid has the "it' factor to make him the eventual best pick in the draft. Yep, I know 99.99% of America calls me crazy, but I simply cannot deny this kid. But, actually, the more doubters the better. He's the perfect fit for this city. Fuck the team. He fits the city. He wants a chip on his shoulder. He wants you to not believe in him. That's Cleveland personified. He wants you to doubt his jumper. I love it. Guys like this make bad teams good and good teams great.

    He has no ego. He has no brand. He wants to be great. He wants to be the best. You pair him with KI and this turns into the hardest working team in the NBA. We instantly become a top 8 defensive team. The Cavs become one of the most well intentioned teams in the NBA. I know, that sounds like BS, but intention means a ton with a young, rebuilding squad. You develop a mentality of dedication like MKG's, KI's, TT's, Gee, etc and this becomes a very tough minded squad. By no means am I saying they are near enough talented to do anything, but it's a great start. It's how you build and it's a great setting to do it here in C Town.

    I want the #1 or #2, but the #3 is almost as good IMO. I obviously want Davis the most, but Beal and MKG are fantastic consolation prizes. I go back and forth between the two, but one of them will be available for us if we make the top 3. Please, God.

    Pairing MKG and Kyrie would create a fantastic mentality on the team. We'd have two future stars who are best friends, hard workers, and great character guys. They would battle their hearts out for each other on the basketball court and that would set quite a standard for the rest of the guys.

    In that way, MKG is an exciting prospect on many different levels.

    Time for Gilbert to send some whores to Stern to seal the deal for that #2 pick.

    If we're wasting perfectly good whores on Stern, it better be for an upgrade to a single brow.

    In exchange for #2, I'd be willing to go as far as securing Stern a night with the Mo Williams Cavs Girl.

    I say it every year and I'll say it again... why would 29 other multi-millionaires let another multi-millionaire buy a fixed lottery?
