Kemba any day. He single handedly led Uconn to an NCAA title. He can create his own shot, clutch in late game situations, great leader, great at jab steps and is insanely quick(like rajon rondo quick). He is not as small as some of you think, he was measured at the draft combine and ended up being 6'1" with shoes, which is like the same height as rajon rondo. He is actually a good passer and can rack up the assists but if you look at the roster for Uconn, the players just weren't very good. Kemba was busy scoring because thats what the coaches asked. I'm sure he could easily avg 5 or more Apg with the Raptors because he wouldn't have to worry about scoring.

Very convincing...lol


One thing I do admire about him is his leadership and his drive. It'll be good to have a player on our roster who actually won a championship.

exactly what i'm saying. He could give us that huge boost that will help our team in the long run. Imagine a front court with Walker and Derozan.

If we have a front court of Walker and DeRozan we're screwed.


But yeah, I like Walker's and DeRozan's winning attitudes.

Seriously. Walker and DeRozan would be a very solid backcourt! A couple years ago people were lamenting our lack of athleticism and defensive intensity in the backcourt. Walker and DeRozan would be a big improvement over Calderon and Belinelli.

Not much of an improvement defensivly. Derozan is pretty bad on D, and Walker is the 3rd best defensive PG in the draft. Neither are great stoppers.

Neither of them are stoppers, true, but we spent a good 5 years arguing if Jose Calderon was the worst defender in the NBA or the worst defender of all time...

Brandon Knight isn't much of a defensive stopper at the next level either way. Kemba Walker torched him when they first faced off. He's going to get lit up by guys who are smaller than him.

Barring trades of the first 4 picks, I bet the draft works out the way most of us now think it will and we end up looking at Kemba as our newest Raptor. Could do worse.

6'1" though? Really??

I'm thinking Nate Robinson will be towering over him.

We should just stick with Bayless, he is better than Knight/Walker will ever be.

Isn't Don Vito a Kemba Walker guy? lol w/e just take Kemba Walker and hope he pans out. He's a better ball handler than Bayless and Knight and has better court vision.
