guy is killing the lakers right now .. currently has 24 points with 5 minutes left in the third. He is controlling the pace of the game and setting people up nicely. I thought he was going to be a bust, but this year he is definitely playing a hell of a lot better. He's turning me into a fan.
on another note the lakers transition D is embarrassing
Kemba is nasty. Despite their recent loss-streak, I think the Bobs are headed in the right direction. Handling the Lakers right now. Now to just get that Hornets name back home!
Kinda off topic.. I dont see the Bobcats much but I do look at the box scores.. Why in the hell do they play Biyombo so many minutes?? The guy seems awful to me.. They need to put BJ at the PF spot and find a center to play beside him.. Hell, use Haywood.. If they have any brains in the organization, they will be trying to draft the big center from Maryland (I think his name is Lin or something.)
Someone who knows the Cats, please fill me in.. Is Biyombo good enought to play 30+ min a night or is it just because they dont have anyone else?
Defensivel yes, offensively no, I have seen a couple bobcats games and his defensive game is still raw but his shot blocking instincts are good
Biyombo is not good enough for 30 mins a game. He's a decent, end-of-the-bench rotation guy who can swat a shot or two, make a hustle play here and there, have a couple putbacks, and grab few boards. I was baffled when my Bobcats drafted him at 7. Hopefully I eat my words in a few years and he turns into a monster, but I just don't see it happening.
yup ill admit that i was one of those ppl who just thought his game wouldnt fit in the nba and that his size would be a problem. hes definitely worked very hard in improving his game and hes really one of the biggest reasons as to why the bobcats arent fighting with the wizards to be the worst team in the league right now.
on a side note, i can really see a trade happening soon with bargs and gasol. BC has stated a trade is bound to happen and with gasol not fitting in the system and raps playing well without bargs it could happen even before nash gets his chance to play with him. especially when the offer is only going to be put out there for so long. with the way calderon is playing though i dont know if he will be packaged...lowry is injury prone but at the same time calderon starting for injured starter is different from calderon as number 1 starter. lol seriously just check his stats when he replaces an injured starter and when he is the natural starter.
kemba just loves the pull up jumpers in transition... guys jacked atleast 6 this game haha. I think hes made about half of them so can't really complain
How did Henderson miss that put back lay-up!? Bobcats should have won.
As well as Kemba has played.. you gotta admit that MKG has made one amazing transition into the NBA and has helped the team out a lot. Kemba has amazed me beyond measure this season though. I was always conflicted whether the Pistons should have drafted Kemba or Knight. Although Kemba is older, he has a type of explosion to his step that I fail to see Knight with.
Yea the Bobcats definitely should have won that game. They had a huge lead and then the Lakers went on a 30-4 run I believe. But the Bobcats are playing with the type of hustle and passion reminiscent of the playoff team back in 2010. I think they are one more draft pick away from getting back in the playoffs within the next year or so. I love what I have seen from MKG and Kemba. I'm surprised nobody is talking about that dunk Henderson did on Dwight! That sh*t was vicious!
Kemba puts in the effort and is a pretty good defender given his small stature. The only times he looks bad is against the elite size Pg's like Russel Westbrook and Jrue Holiday. Damian Lillard reminds me of him offensively, a very good refine shooter. He uses good movement dribble and fakes to always get himself good looks. I've been a big fan of his since the Bobcats drafted him.
It's crazy that the majority of people that come on this site thought Biyombo was likely Garbage. This site had him being a Diamond in the rough, a hidden gem. I think ranked him the best big man of that draft. That was really weird. I remember people calling out whoever runs this site on him during that time.
Ben Gordon should play more...... his whole career he should've played more.......
