MKG continues to impress me. I wasn't high on MKG during the draft, but I'm excited to see what he can bring 3 years from now.
Giving somebody six more inches in height and a couple more in arm length, as well as 30-40 pounds is such a huge difference. This also bears out statistically, as MKG shoots 67% at the rim (58-86), while Kemba shoots 51% (44-86).
Back to MKG, he is an elite level finisher. I think this is a talent every bit as much as outside shooting. I think it is actually a harder skill to develop, where basic outside shooting is more a matter of form and repetition, while touch around the basket is something that seems more innate. You have to know just the right angles and amount of force on the shot, while also judging the right trajectory over or through arms, be able to use both hands, all the while being hit or knocked around. More variables requires more skill.
Walker and Kidd are a great duo going forward. If we can land a big in this draft that can contribute as much as these two, we will be in the playoffs next year. We already got some of the role players in place already. Bitchsmack, Taylor gang, and BJ Mully will be quality role players in the end.
I ain't even mad.
This game thoroughly entertained me. Its such a nice change of pace to see someone other than Mullens cost us a game.
You can tell MKG & Kemba are tight. They're always talking on the court and every time they show a shot of the bench they're sitting beside one another. Also I'm sure you guys saw the big smile Kemba had when Biz caught that pass and finished.
Love seeing the guys being like that.
I thoroughly enjoyed both the Portland and NY games. Don't care that we lost; both were phenomenally entertaining.
MKG can score at will in the paint; if there's any room at all (acknowledging that sometimes it's just packed tight).
I REALLY like Kemba better when he drives, then stops and pops. That move seems to be his kill shot; rather than the over, under, behind and around at the rim thank God nobody blocked it shot.
This team is fun to watch and a lot of NBA fanatics out there are figuring that out.
Thanks; just felt that needed to be said - anytime - any thread. It's just necessary.
That's the beauty of team sports, especially basketball. The relationships and the growth not just as an individual but of a unit. That play encapsulated that perfectly.
