Dunlap thinks so at least. Nice article about Team building around Walker.

Read this earlier this evening. Good read. I am a big Kemba fan. As hard as I've heard he works, I have no doubt he will ne an all-star at some point in his career.

Chris Paul level... not so sure about that, but a fringe all-star player year in and year out.

I may be a blind homer, but I think this team is a lot closer to being competitive than a lot of people think. We just need a couple finishing pieces, like a legit post player for starters.

not that far, i good post scorer and a solid SG that can score 18+ every night.... all the other pieces are mostly here. But getting those 2 starters are harder said then done. Especially since its been how many yrs now and we still have never had either lol

If we are relying on Kemba becoming as good as Chris Paul to become competitive we are in a lot of trouble.

You will be shocked to see how much better our pick and roll will be if we have legit post player that the defense actually has to defend.

Also having a legit post player means you can run the offense some through the low post. If you are good enough to force double teams your team should get more wide open shots.

So just by getting a legit post player we can make certain guys look like even better scorers than they are.

And we need more scorers ;)

I agree, Kemba has that potential, but he's more dynamic and flashy.

I love Kemba, his game reminds me of my own except he's not playing JUCO or a YMCA league lol.

I don't get to watch the game, but I was concerned when we picked him, and reviews weren't
glowing last year. His improvement has me excited, but I just don't see Chris Paul level.

I tend to agree that I don't necessarily see the CP3 comparisons...i see more CP3 in Kyrie Irving.

But that being said, I think Walker is a legit No. 2 option running the point in the future. IDK if MKG is the No. 1 option one day or if it will come in the draft...but I think Walker is already up in the talks of the Ty Lawson's in the league.

dunlap is just trying to push him to be better.

if kemba can become 80% of what paul is, we'll have a hell of a point guard

I doubt Walker will ever be as well rounded as Chris Paul is; CP is best PG in the league today. I believe he can be a better scorer than him, though.
