2011 NBA Mock Draft: Is Kemba Walker in the Cards for the Charlotte Bobcats?
2011 NBA Mock Draft Will See Kemba Walker Go Off of the Board, But Will He Be Heading to Charlotte?
Since the Big East Tournament, Kemba Walker has played his best basketball of the season.
Walker has reminded us of how special of a talent he is and how dynamic of a player he can be at the next level. The Connecticut guard has a great clutch gene and has put the Huskies on his back and has carried them all the way to the Final Four.
Charlotte is going to have a pick towards the top of the first round and that's going to give the Bobcats a great shot of landing the guard. D.J. Augustin has been a solid point guard for the Bobcats, but he's not a gamechanger and Walker is in every sense of the word. He's the type of player you want holding the ball in the final seconds, and more times than not, he's going to make the shot and give you the win.
One of the knocks against Walker is his size, and that's going to be something that's going to hold him back from being one of the top picks in the draft, keeping him where the Bobcats can snag him. I have a hard time putting a huge amount of stock into size when it pertains to guards because we've seen players at those positions come through the league and dominate, regardless of their size.
Walker's the type of player where you can give him the ball and watch him go to work as he slashes to the rim for the bucket or kick it out to his teammates. He's aggressive, and sometimes that hurts him, as he forces bad shots and tries to make things happen when there's nothing there. He also needs to improve his jump shot, but all of the tools are there for Walker to be the type of player who can consistently carry a starting role for years.
I don't see him being a franchise player, but he's certainly a piece to the puzzle and he could thrive in Charlotte, knocking down big shots and sparking a team as Michael Jordan puts a squad around him.
