As for Kemba not getting calls, I definitely see it too. Give it some time, though. He has to build the reputation/expectation that he takes it to the rim strong on a consistent basis. Once he has that established, I believe the calls will be there.
Have to bump this after Kemba's recent phenomenal play. Unlike some/most, I've always seen Kemba as a natural at the 1, so that was never a concern for me, it was his wildly inconsistent jumper. I mean, such amazing dribbling and hesitation moves to open himself up for a 12 footer and CLANG over and over as a rook. And now look at him! And he's becoming a legit 3 pt threat.
Plus dude has the quickest hands this side of CP3 on defense. Damn, did we ever get a winner in Kemba!
great Draft Pick and he's proving what a great player he is !
Kemba should be our 2nd All Star in Cats history
Another masterful job last night (vs. PHI) by Kemba at the point humbling on both ends an All Star point guard in Jrue Holiday. Fighting through all the no-calls on his drives to the lane, he delivered some of the sweetest dribble breakdowns and passes I've seen from any point guard this year. That Shammgodish one-handed crossover he pulled on Holiday to get by him and then the fake pass, then lookaway oop to McBob was insane! Maybe the prettiest play I've seen this year.
Then there was the pretty no-look drop-off to the trailing Henderson for the slam.
I'm biased, but I don't see how there's any doubt Kemba is not rising to become a top flight 1 in this league. I just salivate at what he can do with an inside presence.
What an amazing sophomore season from Kemba!
I think he definatley has the potential to be an All Star because he's effective on both ends of the court.
As much as McBob kept us in it in the 2nd half and made that win possible, so did Kemba (and Gerald to a smaller extent) for not completely losing their shit on the refereeing. Sure hope Violet Palmer is at the Heat game again as she seemed to be the only ref interested in calling an actual game between the two of us.
Agreed on his awesomeness this year.
Side note: How about Hendo's sick ass drive to the hoop where he missed the dunk because held on too long. Not sure I've seen moves like that from him ever. It was like he borrowed Kemba's feet for a play.
