The Charlotte Bobcats are the first wild card on the board for the 2012 NBA Draft. With one player heads above the rest of the competition in Anthony Davis, the New Orleans Hornets will select the Kentucky big man. The Bobcats at No. 2 lead the rest of those selecting in a deep draft without any clear winner for the second best overall player available.
Fran Fraschilla of ESPN writes that it will come down to two primary options for the Bobcats at No. 2: Kansas forward Thomas Robinson and Kentucky's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
Bobcats' No. 2 pick will come down to T-Rob and MKG. Ultimately, I'd take T-Rob's scoring, toughness and NCAA best defensive rebounding %.— Fran Fraschilla (@franfraschilla) June 1, 2012
The two players are certainly among the best available, but the Bobcats need help all around. If personal workouts show a favoritism toward Bradley Beal or Andre Drummond, for example, that shouldn't surprise anyone. As good as MKG and Robinson are, it's speculation after Davis.
