Bobcats Want Kemba To Be More Like Paul and Parker

Kemba WalkerCharlotte Bobcats first year head coach Mike Dunlap wants his starting point guard Kemba Walker to be more like Chris Paul and Tony Parker. Dunlap emphasizes Tony Parker’s attention to detail and Chris Paul’s game management.

“First, change of speed: This is how he does it, where and when,” Dunlap said. “Then, two is just how when he doesn’t have the ball, he is one of the hardest cutters in the league. He just rips his cuts. Third is if you overplay his cuts — snap — he goes back door.”

“I think he’s probably played better than any point guard in the league, if you want to be totally frank,” Popovich said. “It’s hard to pick somebody whose had a better year than he’s had.”

The second year point-guard out of UConn is having a breakout season, averaging 18 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds. He helped lead the team to a fast start out of the gates and a 7-5 record, but the team has since stumbled tremendously. If the season were to end today, the Bobcats would have the worst record in the NBA for the second straight season.
