things i like:
his hands have improved, which i think is more a result of getting a better feel for the game and expecting the ball in certain spots than actually catching the ball ie it was never that he couldn't catch
i absolutely love the way he sprints down the court on both offense and defense. most bigs only do it when they think they are going to get the ball.
his effort in game is more like a small player than a big player. he rarely loafs.
he is starting to be the main big setting picks. if he continues improving here over the next few seasons he will be a valuable member of any team.
he is working on his offense one move at a time. right now he is developing the jump hook. i like this approach, it cuts down on confusion and "robot moves".
things he needs to work on:
not getting out of position so much on defense. i notice him more than anyone else "scrambling" in the middle of rotations after helping or showing on a pick
staying on his feet more. shot blocking is as much about timing and knowing the offensive player as it is jumping.
timing on pick and rolls. i can't figure out if this is kemba's issue, biz's or a combo. i suspect it is a combo. biz sets solid screens and kemba does a great job setting up the defenders, but either biz's roll is too slow or kemba is attacking to quickly. it seems that they are off by about two steps. biz has to roll faster but i think like a running back in football waiting on lineman and setting up blocks, kemba has to wait to kick it into hyperdrive. this is where chris paul and rondo excel, kemba will learn it but right now the timing is off.
bringing the ball down after a rebound. brandon jennings must have had 5 pokeaways last night from this.
overall, i think he has righted the ship from the preseason. although, i don't think dwight howard is a ceiling anymore, i do see him becoming a pretty good center.
