Just had a thought...does Kemba need to stop with the 90 % of the ball and get his team involved?   Dominant ball is crazy with him on offense.

Way to easy to stop...just saying

I thought they played better last night with Tony at the point and Kemba at the two.  

Yeah, but if TP was in his late 20's and early 30's we could depend on that. We can't depend on a 36 year old TP to have those type of games.

Personally, I think Kemba plays based off how the team plays. If the rest of the team is going he is more likely to become a distributor, but if the team is struggling then he takes matters into his own hands. However, the team is at its’ best when Kemba is going and has at least one other contributor.

The most common line up used is the starting line up of Kemba, Lamb, Batum, Marvin, and Zeller.

For the qualifications of this test I set the minimum shot attempts at 7 while also shooting 50% or higher.

With that said, let’s take a look at who shot over 50% from the staring lineup from each game so far.

Bucks: Kemba (41 points) - Loss by 1

Magic: Kemba (26 points) and Batum (15 points) - Win by 32

Heat: Marvin (13 points) and Zeller (11 points) - Win by 1

Raptors: Kemba (26 points) - Loss by 21

Bulls: Zeller (14 points) and Lamb (12 points - Loss by 2

Bulls: Kemba (30 points) and Zeller (14 points) - Win by 29

76ers: Zeller (12 points) - Loss by 2

Heat: Batum (20 points) - Win by 12

The Hornets are 1-3 when they only have one player shoot above 50% meeting the 7 shot minimum qualification (I set the qualification at 7 because 7 shots usually gives a player the chance to hit double figures), the exception being the last game when the bench chipped in over 50% of the points.

As we can see by the Magic and Bulls game, the Hornets clearly play the best when Kemba is on his game and has someone else who is also knocking down shots.

I’d go out on a limb and say that the Hornets will win 90% of their games where Kemba and another starter both shoot over 50%.

    • You never really know, so we better enjoy him while he's here and active.  
    • Can't forget the "Glass is dirty" crowd that just hate the the coaching, the leadership, the fanbase and about 70% of the players. They think it's going to suck no matter what. Honestly, there will be a big difference between opening day and the pre-season. We aren't doing anything but vanilla versions of our systems on defense and offense. We aren't game planning, but just trying guys here and there to determine depth charts and cuts. The guys on the O-line aren't hitting and getting physical like they will and we aren't pushing the CMC run game yet. Once it matters, we'll get out there. And look, we were looking for a good reason to keep Cam on the bench until opening day. He'll be fine. And no one has a great QB as their QB2.
    • Montana miss almost 2 full seasons with a bad back when he got hit in that playoff game against the Giants.  If you watch that hit that would make anyone think about retiring.  It never really got right until after he retired.  Cam has never had an injury like that.
