    Look, we all agree Kemba will be a good starter. But he would be a great 6th man is the point we are trying to make. But that will require more talent to be brought in for the Cats. They can't sacrifice their best players minutes and role just because he may be better suited to have a different role, off the ball.

    yeah, last night was the first time I have watched him this season, but took at peak at his advanced numbers before the game, and his shot charts. He looks a ton better this year. I watched him live last year, front row, and you can see he has natural scoring instincts, but seems limited being forced to also be a distributor. I just think he is the type that you ask simply to score, and be efficient, and make the right plays if they present themselves.

    When im right im right. I caught a lot of flack during his championship run at uconn and i was right then.

    Then all i heard was he isnt an nba player hs a chucker blah blah blah and now hes balling

    I pumped up kemba since i saw his growth from freshmn to sophmore year i knew the kid had it and i was right. Its okay to remind people you were right if you were and i was right with kemba

    You should because every trait you like of his i been said he had and you doubted. Do you see me pumping up jermey lamb or andre drummond or rudy gay the way i do kemba? No cause i had my nba doubts for each guy regardless if they played for my uconn huskies

    I knew kemba had it because kemba i more than his box score. Dude has tons of intangibles from leadership, to fearess ness to work ethic to swag to being the personallity of a team to being a pest on defense.


    He isnt the greatest defender but he tries and hes a pest

    I have analysis skills for basketball since ive been around the game my whole life and i actually watch games not just look at box scores

    You dont want to give me props cause im riv hater

    I completely agree. Last year he was a mess at times, he could score, but he really struggled with scoring over taller players, and he would occasionally get shot happy. He appears to have learned from his mistakes this year though. Not a great passer though like you said lol That is evident on alot of plays

    In my opinion the only "locks" are
    1) miami
    2) new york
    3) chicago
    4) boston

    after that the east is wide open. Indiana and Philly (alebit because of injuries) have clearly regressed to the point where they look AWFUL and a bunch of teams such as milwaukee, Cleveland, brooklyn have all improved. If i had to guess i would say the bottom 4 seed are

    5) milwaukee
    6) brooklyn
    7) Charlotte
    8) Atlanta

    Milwaukee or Atlanta or even Cleveland ahead of them, but they've been surprisingly OK so far

    Sure, I get it. But you don't have to high five yourself for it. Kemba looks like a nice piece, but cmon man. We all have our hits and misses.

    Possible. But I mean the Cavs went 8 and 9 in 2010-2011 before ending up being one of the worst teams.

    Bump for 5-4. Hung in there with the Grizzlies, and just knocked off a tough Bucks team.

    We could exceed our win total from last year by the end of November.

    Go Cats.
