About the 10th best point guard is Kemba's ceiling.
Problem is, point guard means so much. Kemba really shuts down the offense.
The kid from NO can play though. Watch out for him.
You don't need to be a top flight PG in today's NBA to win titles. A platoon of Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole won 2 titles in Miami. Chris Paul and Steph Curry are 1-2 as far as point guards are concerned and neither have even been to a finals.
Today's NBA is more about wing play with less of an emphasis on the point guard and center positions than past eras. No doubt having a great player at those spots helps, but this is why I'm sick of reading on here that Kemba is holding this team back. It's pointing the finger at the wrong spot.
This team will live and die by the play of MKG. If he doesn't develop a consistent offensive game over the course of his career, the best this team can hope for is to become an eastern conference Memphis. There's nothing wrong with Memphis, they are a fine team and have shown great consistency, but they aren't winning a title out of the loaded west anytime soon and the door and that current core they have is closing.
They have the PG, PF, and C to get it done, but that's what happens when you have Vince Carter and Tayshaun Prince ten years past their primes starting on the wings and Tony Allen (an older MKG at the 2) coming off the bench.
