MKG is a very good defender. Other than allowing 62 to Melo and 61 to LeBron, he's solid. Lance is another great defender. BUT, Al has had injury problems in the past and is a year older, Kemba hasn't shown enough to make anyone believe that he can be the #1 guy if needed, MKG is awful offensively and has proven that he can't stop LeBron or Melo, and Lance Stephenson is still immature. Not to mention their lack of depth at the point guard and center positions and that Noah Vonleh is only a rookie who has struggled at times in the Summer League. With that said, I see the Hornets having a good season and making the playoffs.
