After an underwhelming start to his career in Charlotte, D.J. Augustin departed in free agency for the figuratively greener pastures of Indiana. In his place arrived Ramon Sessions, who despite his excellent court vision, has struggled to land a consistent starting gig in the league.
Sessions' main issue is likely his defense (or, rather, his lack of it), as he struggles to stay in front of opposing point guards and seems to be without much lateral quickness. And while his outside shooting has improved, Sessions is no big threat from beyond the arc.
Kemba Walker, Charlotte's alternative option at the point, has struggled to carry his collegiate success over to the NBA, and though he did a decent job of filling up the stat sheet in his rookie season, his inconsistency remains a major issue.
Still, with a team focused so strongly on the future, Walker is the better choice to lead.
Not only is Walker four years younger than Sessions, but he also defends at a much higher level and is more capable of pushing the ball in transition.
Sessions has played well off the bench throughout his career, and considering the Bobcats' lack of depth, he should get plenty of opportunity to play alongside, as well as behind, Walker.
The Verdict: Kemba Walker
