we all need to keep in mind that no starters were on the floor for atlanta for much of the 2nd half. we are not in a position to just get rid of dj. if we can find a good trade, then do it.
as i said in the chat, i am not sure that kemba is a starting pg in the nba anyway. i think he is a combo guard. i think he is a steve francis type. franchise was really good, but you aren't getting anywhere near a ring with franchise as your best player.
I seriously don't understand why anyone would doubt Kemba's ability to be a starter. I mean what more do you want out of a guy who is 6' 1"? He's Incredibly quick and athletic with great basketball instincts. Keep in mind this was only his first preseason game so it's likely he's only going to get better. A guy with that kind of skill isn't someone you should expect to ride an NBA bench for a career. It's crazy how a guy can be so skilled and doubted at the same time.
Kemba brought the superstar energy to TWCA that I normally only see when it's an opposing star in town.
He was really incredible down the stretch. Now, it was just preseason...no other real players in the game...but he stepped up and won the game. I am most impressed with his ability to get to the foul line. That's huge for a rookie, or any player for that matter.
I wish he would have made that slam!!
This is cam newton all over again with all the doubts.
im ready to move on from DJ. I hope the front office is looking to move him ASAP.
Kemba is a freak of nature & is definitely our franchise going forward.
He goes into terminator mode when the game is on the line.
He will be the best PG from this class, I have absolutely no doubt.
kemba's game is great because he is explosive and a true gamer. but he has to have the ball in his hands and it has to go through him. this limits the rest of the players on the floor. you can't put enough talent around him because of this and this severely limits how far you can go in the post season.
i like kemba alot. and think he will make an excellent pro player. i am just saying i don't think his most effective role (in terms of winning a ring) is as a starting point guard.
