Who's better kemba or knight?
Whos the better player as of right now and who will be the better player in the pros
Rookie season Kemba, career Kinght
Better mid range game, much more athletic, with better pick and roll ability and ability to separate from defenders due not only to quickness advantage but also ball handling ability advantage. Also, Kemba is a better playmaker. I think that neither will be stars, with even Kemba probably never being much more than an average starting pg and probably best suited as a back-up on a championship caliber team.
i hope knight lol
but i hope kemba does just as good as knight lol
In my mind, it's Kemba. He is the focal point of the Bobcats and will always overshadow Knight. Everyone doubts Kemba but how can he be any worse than Ty Lawson?? Plus I feel Kemba he has more potential. They're almost equally fast, both came into the league with shaky jumpers (which Lawson has improved) and became National Champs. With Knight, he seemed real pouty about sliding, hopefully he can use that as motivation. What Knight holds over Kemba in a jumpshot, he is behind in almost everything else. Speed, explosiveness, leadership, clutch factor, experience, swag. I could go on. People talked about Kemba and his inefficient 43 % from the field, but Knight only shot a point higher. Clear cut Kemba in my mind
got his goal as a team leader, to become a winner.
I think it depends on the surrounding cast, and neither of them have great ones, and Knights cast is gettting old...
I think they both have the opportunity to turn into very good pros. I don't think there is any question Kemba is the better player right now but Knight does have a lot of upside. You can't really compare Ty Lawson to Kemba Walker. Lawson was a distributor in college while Kemba had the shoulder the scoring load for his team. They are both two very different players coming out of college. But as far as who will have the better career between Walker and Knight really could come down to the position they are put in. I hope too much is not expected of either of them immediately because it may be a difficult transition from college to the NBA for them both.
^^^^ what you are coming out of college doesn't determine what you are in the league...what is Ty Lawson now?? Rarely a distributor and way more of a slasher/scorer.
Kemba owned Knight twice in the last 8 months in games that mattered. At this point in their career, Kemba is pretty far ahead. However, Knight is younger, faster (see combine speeds), bigger and has a better shot. In the long run Knight looks like the safe bet. However, people who've bet against Kemba over the last year have regrets.
When you consider positioning and surrounding talent, Jimmer is more likely than Kemba or Knight to look special in the near term--maybe the long term as well.
Between Irving, Knight, and Walker it is really a toss up.
All three should be in the running for rookie of the year with Kemba Walker having a slight edge. I think MJ gives Kemba the keys from day one, hoping that Kemba and Bismack have a steep learning curve and are able to become legit players by the end of the year. Oh, and MJ probably really, really, really wants to draft Harrison Barnes for next year. Nice, young core with Kemba, Bismack, and Barnes. So look for the Jordancats to get a top 3 pick and take Harrison Barnes.
Will those three guys be all-stars or win championships? Who knows. I think it will have a lot do to with how each guy fits and what the teams put around them.
KEMBA KEMBA KEMBA thats it hands down. I will go with a winner
Kemba is ahead now and for those saying Knight has more potential, Kemba is only 19 months older than Knight. I think people like Knight because he had the hype out of HS, he followed in the foot steps of a few really good recent point guards by going to Kentucky, and the way he scores makes it look like he is scoring a lot more than he is. I feel like I'm the only person who thinks Brandon Knight's so called strength, the pull up J, is a bad shot for him at this point, but then again it's a bad shot for a lot of people but that doesn't seem to stop them. I'm not engouraged by either's FG% in season's where they were "the guy" for the team but Kemba did stay away from turning the ball over a lot (2.3 tpg) compared to Knight (3.2 tpg)
Brandon Knight isn't better than Walker right now, but I think he will be in a few years. Probably as soon as their 2nd years in the NBA. Knight has more size, shooting skills, and the ability to be both a better PG and a better defender. Knight will probably be able to defend alot of SG's in time.
i agree with nixon
In my opinion both are a little overrated, but right now Walker
