Let Kemba walk

I see Big Al (maybe Kemba?) being hated on for defense by SuperJ in this thread. In the "FA wanting to come here thread", he bitches about not getting Harden (and Lillard somehow?). Have you seen James Harden EVER play defense? Lulz.

Hell Naw, lol

You pretty much just proved my point.

Miami's defense caused us to struggle meaning we couldn't keep up with them, so what does that mean?

WE NEED OFFENSIVE HELP!!!

Oh definitely. I just don't agree with one area being more important than another.

We absolutely need another scorer that's a legitimate three-point threat.

That is probably the worst thing we could do!

Good offense is better than a good defense, that's why Charlotte, Chicago, and Indiana are on the brink of elimination.

We need a scorer, Curry can score.

 

Exactly - the Cats need a pure scorer to make teams think twice about shutting down Al down low. A big, defensive minded 4 a la Horace Grant or will help clog up some of those driving/passing/backdoor lanes. I thought maybe McRoberts could be that guy, but I was wrong.

There needs to be a legit discussion about Kemba's poor shooting, shot selection, and defensive liabilities, but this OP isn't the guy to lead that discussion.

Oh and bring Chris Paul home. He has to want out of LA now. We could package our two white players with a pick and send it off to LA for CP3.

I am astounded at the ignorance of some on this board about the Bobcats, or even basketball in general.

 

Whoever compared Kemba Walker & James Harden... just stop.  They don't even play the same position.

 

I have been a season ticket holder for several years, but a follower of the Cats since their inception... so while I may be slightly (only slightly) biased due to pure fandom, I do know a lot about basketball having played competitively for years.

 

As for Kemba Walker... he may be a slight defensive liability, but that's why you have help defense.  He has bad games, but so does everybody else.  He is our best option at PG, and we definitely should not let him go and then go overpay for someone else, ESPECIALLY when PG is not a concern of ours now.  We have glaring holes at SG, SF, & PF.  To stray from Kemba right now would be like painting your boat while it's sinking.  Maybe we'll re-visit it down the road, but for now, the 2, 3, & 4 are our concerns.

 

We need to lock up Kemba & try to entice Big Al to stay in town.  I know he has his 3rd year option, but I am hoping that not only will he opt to stay in Charlotte, but that Cho & MJ are currently working on an extension for the big fella.  He is the best offensive center in the NBA, and while his defense is not amazing, it certainly isn't nearly as bad as some like to say.  Seems to me some on this board spend more time reading articles and less time actually watching him play.  Form your own opinion...don't just buy what ESPN is selling.  We have NEVER...I repeat NEVER... had a night-in, night-out scoring threat like Al Jefferson.  Not many teams have a guy that, when healthy, is basically unstoppable.

 

So...keep Kemba... keep Al...(hell, keep Gary Neal, too!) it's the rest of the team that needs work.

The poor shooting that everyone loves to complain about isn't all on him. I would definitely like to see him improve his shooting, but he is forced to launch late clock heaves a lot because everyone else is either too afraid to shoot or we get in a terrible offensive slump.
