A thriller of a game, ended with the diminutive Walker swishing home the game-winner. Young Sky Walker can straight up ball. (Skip to the 1:20 mark for the winner.)

My thing is…if a guy like Chris Paul can be considered a top three pg in the league or a guy like Jennings can thrive in the league, then why do guys like Kemba stay getting hated on because of their lack of height? I know the new wave of pg’s…the Wall’s, Rose’s, and so on are all 6’2″ and up at least, but C’MON SON!!! Kemba’s got mad heart mayne!!!
The thing is D-Block that Kemba is a 2-guard and that’s what makes it tough, Drose = 6’3 and guys like Brandon Jennings and CP3 are definitely PG’s, Kemba’s just not, I’m not hating on him, I love his game love watching him play and I think he will be a good NBA player but if he has to guard guys that are 6’6 night in night out, that’s going to be pretty much impossible.
I don’t really think it’s fair to say he’s a 2. UCONN plays him off the ball sometimes but it’s only done to get him more looks and avoid double-teams. He’s a starting point guard in the League.
Kemba’s gonna be a good pro he is playing for Uconn after all! Check their products!
this dude seriously needs an article in SLAM. dude is awesome to watch, heck i wouldnt even mind seeing him on a cover, although that may be pushing it
kemba is not a two guard are you kidding…he plays off the ball so that he’s not pressured every time he wants to bring the ball up…every team is keyed up on him…also, uconn doesnt have a two guard so in order to maximize the teams talents they moved him there…its out of necessity
Bringing the ball up (or not) doesn’t make you a PG, Kobe, MJ, LeBron, Wade all bring the ball up alot during games. He definitely has the playing style of a 2-guard, taking all the shots, he can dish, but alot of SG’s can do that.
Does anyone remember a diminutive 2 guard, think his name was Allen something… meh can’t remember
Point is, if you are good you are good, and Kemba is good, not saying he is A.I good, but hopefully he deals with practice better
