Sam Amick: "Kemba More Likely To Leave Than Stay"

Recommended Posts

Sam Amick, a well respected NBA reporter for The Athletic with nearly 220K Twitter followers was asked in a Q&A whether or not he thought Kemba was going to re-sign in Charlotte.

Amick responded with the following answer:

"At this point, based on scuttlebutt around the league but without direct clarity from his side, it feels like he’s more likely to leave than stay."

Start preparing your lives for some of the most miserable basketball you have ever seen.

Pure speculation. Kemba probably doesn't even know what he is going to to yet.

We're watching miserable basketball with Kemba.  He deserves better than what this pathetic franchise has done to capitalize on his talents.

I’m more concerned about what is best for the Hornets...and keeping Kemba here is best for us right now 

but we have got to get some more scoring...getting old seeing Kemba miss shots with game on the line, it happens way too much

Of course.  If we give Kemba a max deal we're going to have to hope for amazing draft picks because we won't be able to afford much else.  And the NBA knows if you double team Kemba and zone the rest, you can completely derail our offense unless it's a night where someone else surprisingly over delivers (Marvin or Lamb most likely).

We will definitely resign Kemba

Curious, what's the timing on such a deal?  Does the team have to wait until after the season to lock him up?

Agreed about how teams play us/Kemba, but the other side of letting him go in Hope's of rebuilding/reconstructing a better overall roster is, we are not a premier free agent destination.  So, even if we didn't re-sign Kemba, we'll have to hit on our draft picks for years to come, because until we actually start winning, no great player will choose to sign with Charlotte anyway...  so, may as well keep Kemba and figure out the rest.  But, we desperately need to hit on a draft pick...  and not Monk, Bridges, or Frank.  I mean we need a big effin' hit.

Unfortunately history isn’t on our side when it comes to nailing a draft pick.  But with Mitch at the helm I guess we’ll see.

We have lost all leverage with Kemba. He can walk and we get nothing or we sign him to huge money and continue this treadmill path. 

This is why I will continue to beat the dead horse and say we should have traded Kemba last year for picks. We would have been terrible this year and had a top 3 pick in a pretty strong draft. 

I also hate the idea that fans won't support a tank. We have supported this shitty team for 30 yrs and even endured the Bobcat era. We watch our team blow 4th quarter games almost each and every game yet continue to watch so I say blow it up and start over. 

Find a way for a sign and trade with Kemba to at least get some value back in return. Overall, I love Kemba and wish him well. It is best for both sides.

If the Knicks miss out on Kyrie there is a very real chance Kemba signs with NY. Dolan will be desperate to sign a superstar. Kemba can go home to NY and make bank? I see that as a very real possibility. 

 

Honestly guys I love this team and I want nothing more than us to succeed. Isn't that by admitting we've seen the peak of this group of guys and they just aren't very good?

Hornets will offer Kemba a max deal. He'll either sign it at 12:01 am, July 1st, or not at all. 

Whoever misses out on the Kyrie sweepstakes will go after Kemba next.

    • Gotcha.  So still a lottery pick despite being nonathletic, injury prone, and unable to shoot (not to mention a really shitty Dad).  Nice work if you can get it! I love watching the guy play basketball.  
    • I'm sure Barrack Hussein Obama was backed by the Kenyan and many African governments, when he challenged the Clinton Machine (aka the DNC) to steal the nomination from the anointed Hillary. Do you even understand what you are saying? If ADOS doesn't even believe in themselves, why should they even try? You wanna know how many ADOS millionaires backed President Obama, when he ran for office in IL and nationally? How about LeBron? Kevin Johnson? Vince Carter? Magic Johnson? just to name a few millionaire ADOS basketball players? Cam Newton has more wealth can Cenk ... oh wait, Cenk is an immigrant ... and according to YC, he is "more citizen than ADOS". How about all the ADOS Rap artists  and Hollywood personalities ...etc. Yea ... ADOS doesn't have any money. Because Tone Talk and YC said so ... "according to the Data"... This is why I feel so sorry for the ADOS movement. It is already failing because it is led by clueless people.   And if Obama is too much for you, maybe you should look at the path of Sheila Lee and how she got where she is now. I know ADOS hates her, but instead of just criticizing her, what can you learn from how she got where she is? The other day, YC made the comment that immigrants are more citizens than ADOS. So, she has managed to convince people (like yourself) that a Haitian (or Jamaican), who risked his life fleeing his country, abandoned his family , arrived on American shores on a boat, doesn't even speak English has more "citizenship" than ADOS, who were born in American, went through High School (with White people) for free and has opportunities to get scholarships to go to college for free?  And of course, people like yourself believe the nonsense. Like I said ... the #ADOS comedy show on YC channel ... is just getting funnier and funnier ... I'm still waiting for #ADOS reparation candidates for any offices in the land ... You got any names yet?
    • I have two seats in 504.  I'm asking $4,000 each.  The Panthers are selling them at $5,000 per seat.  That's a $2,000 savings for the pair of PSLs, but can't get a bite.
