As valid of a point as you've made you can pretty much go to any Hornets draft and find a better player we could've drafted. Really the only drafts I felt we got stuff right on were the Emeka Okafor draft and the Kemba Walker draft (hopefully PJ Washington joins that list). Basically we've **** it every other time.
'Technically', SGA was a hornets pick. Considering what Bridges is worth, this one is the most painful i guess.
The main issue is that Hornets don't tank enough to land top lottery pick (top 3) unlike many other teams
see you say that but it isn't like there haven't been players on the board that would help our team nearly every draft- we just always miss them. Even when we draft high we draft poorly. Kemba is our best ever pick at #9 and we had drafted Biyombo before him at #7 just for contextual evidence of how much we suck at drafting. Dude we drafted Zeller in the top 4. Picked up a Center in Frank that we never intended to use, and once upon a time wasted picks on guys like Sean May and Adam Morrison.
