New season, new coaches, new philosophy, fresh thread.
Since I never heard a peep about Kemba from our local paper/tv/radio, I'm just sharing what the Bobcat's website had for a video update about his summer.
For those who don't like to click on videos, here is a summary:
Excited about new big guys - can just throw it to Al to get buckets, better rebounding
Cody can score a lot, does a lot of the small things, is very versatile
Hendo looking great, scoring well; McBob great passer with a very high bball IQ
On Al - Kemba wanted him over anyone. They have the same agent, and he happened to be in the office when Al was there, so he gave him a strong pitch to recruit him, and let Rich and Rod do the rest.
Kemba has been working on his passing a lot this summer. Wants to get everyone involved, knows he doesn't have to do as much as he had to before, really wants to bring his assists up.
Also has been working a lot on his 3 point shooting, so when Al and Cody get doubled, he can hit the open shots. Ready to make some 3s.
Never played with such a skilled big man like Al before, very excited.
Kemba, MKG and Taylor have been having fun on Twitter/Vine/Instagram. Known MKG from way back, and Taylor from before as well. There was something they were doing this summer, but part of the video was edited out, then talked about doing something on the big screen.
I know its all talk right now, but I like what I'm hearing. More focus on working on his passing game and getting his assists up, and continuing to improve his 3 point shooting. Basically, he's been attacking his weaknesses this offseason.
Also really liked the fact that Kemba, MKG, and Taylor really get along great. There is something to be said about building great chemistry, especially when you can have a great bond between our young, growing core. With Taylor looking like a changed/confident player, and hopefully a much improved MKG, I'm real excited to see what Kemba can do with all these guys.
biz was off camera fucking around during a lot of the interview: http://statigr.am/p/542026976713442099_29983007
and yeah, excited to see how kemba has improved his 3 point shot and passing.
i really like most of the guys on this team and i'm glad they like each other.

I think it's awesome that Kemba realises that he doesn't have to do it all this season.
Should see his assists jump a bit as he moulds and develops into a complete point guard who makes everyone better, yet still capable of bursts of pure scoring when needed.
Proud Australian Bobcats Fan!!!
I hope he doesn't change his game that much though, cause especially with point guards that kind of stuff can backfire when you try to play a style of play that ain't your own. But for the biggest part, I'm excited that he's excited. If half the stuff he's bragging about is just partly true; we're going to have one hell of a season.
Walker top 10 point
Henderson top 10 s/g
Jefferson top 3 Center
MKG solid defender
Zeller rookie of the year
A top 5 bench in the east
All together more than 30 wins, Most balanced roster ever
