1. Kemba and Bismack are most certainly not "essentially rookies"
Now that we got that out of the way. Kemba made a few stupid mistakes last night near the end of the game that had a lot to do with the Wolves' comeback. So did Reggie, Sessions, and Mully. Making mistakes is part of the game. Kemba also made a great game winning shot that gave us the win. But that last play does not absolve him from any criticism.
You take the good and the bad with young players.
I wonder if Kemba know that he plays with such a huge microscope on his every mistake by a lot of Bobcat fans and critics. If so, that's one heck of a burden to carry on his young shoulders on a nightly basis and he's more ballsy than I initially gave him credit for.
We should thank more than bash Kemba really. I have faith in him, b/c honestly last year I hated him b/c dude had no signs of being a good player.
I think we are all on the same page here now. so enough of that.
Favorite part of last night wasn't necessarily the shot that one it (though obviously it was awesome), but the inbound and moments preceding it. Kemba wanted that shot from the get go. He practically pulled the basketball out of the net and quickly got it to Mully for the inbound. took one look up court and the rest is history. Just nice knowing we have a guy like that.... especially after his first 6 real games in the NBA :)
Kemba is a Beast !!
The fact that people are in the position to critic his game play shows how much he has progressed. He is one to two years away from really being an automatic 25-5 type of player...If he improves his jumpshot in the next year or so, watch out.
he's averaging 19 PPG and defending awsome !. He has been very effective on both ends of the floor this season and he's showing why we picked him in the top 10 !
