I think he's a legitimate 1st option here. He's shown that he is. What we need to do is build around Jefferson. I dont believe that Kemba is the long term answer, but he has prove that he can get the job done. What we really lack is not a SG, but a "small forward". Kidd-Gilchrist may turn out to be a top defender, but I dont think he's ever going to develop an offensive game.
Shooting guard and small forward needs to be upgrade. I just see small forward being a bigger problem. Henderson is improving and is a solid defender at SG. We have no answer at SF atm.
So you feel Jefferson as a 1st option can compete with the first options of teams with Lebron, Durant, Christ Paul or Paul George?
Also don't understand your acceptance of Hendo over MKG.
Hendo is shooting 42% from the field and 30% from 3. You say that is improving even thought he is going into his 5th season and shooting worse than the past 3 years.
MKG is a second yr player who with all his faults is still shooting 46% from the field. He also gets above average rebounding for a player at his position.
Truth be told he's an excellent second option. Too bad he's never had a 1st option to go with including here. I still feel lil we are missing our 1st option player.
I am still thinking that is a SG.
PG: Kemba- Great 3rd Option
SG: Hopefully we can a Superstar in the next draft
SF: MKG (Many have given up but I still feel like he is the glue and can do so much once we get shooters around him
PF: Unknown (McRoberts is our offensive glue guy but doesn't scare anybody and too early to tell on Zeller but on paper he is a great fit. in person, he is just too weak and can't finish around the hoop)
Thread got all quiet from those who originally thought it was a good idea to get rid of Kemba or that he wasn't important. Against the Knicks Melo was just out of his mind. Against the Bulls, I think we probably would have won that won with Kemba on the court.
