I was looking up some stats and comparing players time spent in Charlotte. I found per game averages for players careers with the Bobcats. The top 4 point guards at this point in our history are in order, Felton, Walker, Knight, Augustin. This was based on PPG and APG
I stumbled across these stats when comparing Felton/Kemba
the stats are mpg, ppg, rpg, and apg
I know it's only been one season and it was a horrible season with not so great talent surrounding Kemba but look at his stats.
He played almost 8 less minutes than Felton averaged for his career here and nearly equaled his scoring output a game, topped his rebounds per game, and came up 2 assists short of Felton's average. If Kemba was to average the same amount of minutes he'd get those 2 extra assists/gm(maybe not last year because of our horrible shooting and inability to score).
I know there's been alot of questions about whether or not he can be our point guard of the future or if he even is a point guard. He shot horrible last year, almost worst in the league for a starter but he was only a rookie. I think he has a chance to be the best point guard we've ever had. DJ only averaged 10 and 4 in his time here.
Brevin Knight averaged 10.8 and 8 fwiw.
I'm interested in seeing what type of numbers Kemba can put up with actual talent around him, i think with mkg running the break with him he'll see more assists this season. I don't know how many minutes Sessions will get and how that will be divided up but I think Kemba is our guy and can provide even better production than Felton did here.
What's your feedback? I used basketball-reference for the stats. Link below
