The Kemba Walker thread

33 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Kemba had a career-high 30 points in the Bobcats' 90-89 season-opening win over the Pacers.

He's clearly turned a corner and is emerging as a very solid young PG. Life is good as a KW fan. Join the club.

That is all.

The dude is fast. I mean fast. I watched him on that one play where he was dribbling faster than everybdiy else without a ball running. He's gonna be good this year. Was hitting everything

i was a skeptic of him all of last season and still think that he has a 2 guard mentality in an undersized 1 guard's body.

He played really well tonight and is really, visibly maturing as a player...and I am really excited to see if he can build off opening night.

On the other hand, I really think he needs to look to dump off to someone wide open, those 18 foot floaters are gonna go ice cold on some nights and it's gonna be really ugly when that happens.

....but hey, win's a win. can't argue with that.

This new system with Dunlap coaching is designed around Kemba. He is going to be a star in this system and put up huge numbers. I hope he keeps it up. He, Hendersom, and MKG on the court together looks awesome. Would be cool if we got a high pick and some how got Nerlens Noel or Cody Zeller to play the 4. We'd have such a sick starting line up.

Congrats Kemba, I have a good feeling the Cats will be much more competitive this season.

No one can't argue that Kemba is a two guard. He's not or never going to be you Chris Paul or Steve Nash PG. Kemba is in the mold of a Westbrook, Jennings, Monta Ellis and DRose.

And I really think that we should utilize him to his best skills, which is shooting the ball rather than trying to make him pick out the defense.

Agree. Anthony David has looked great in his two short games. If Nerlens can be as athletic as Davis, it should be fun seeing him in a Charlotte uniform. Zeller also should be really fun. He's not as athletic as Davis and is more of an offensive player, something like Pau Gasol but it would any of those two would help us a great deal in the paint.

If we do land a high pick (i hope we dnt fug this up) and get a Noel, Zeller or even a Shabazz and McAdoo, do not rule out MJ being much more aggressive and going after a free agent.

This.

Just think of we get a high pick or one of the players mentioned above and with some cap space pick up a notable player who can either start or contribute next year. Things might be turning around in a few years.

I see great things in the near future for the Bobcats. I think we are going to be the new Thunder in a few years. I'm excited. We will get the scrubs off our roster soon and have tons of money to spend on good free agents. We could also have 3 first round picks in 2014 I think. If we can get a good young core and bring in good veteran FAs we are going to be in good shape.

I think that once he really gets the point guard position, the guy is going to be a star. He's fast, he's starting to make his shots, and he's feisty.

Also, I like that small line-up that Dunlap is running, with Walker at the 1, Henderson at the 3, and MKG at the 4.

Another also, Bismack sucks.
