Found November 15, 2012 on TheProBasketballTalk:
Kemba Walker has a lot of doubters due to his size and position.  Many think at best he can be an Iverson, but not as good of a scorer, others just dog on him for his size.  I am not going to sit here and tell you that he is going to grow or that the physical attributes will change.  What I do know is that Kemba Walker is a warrior.  He has a knack for making big plays when they matter most.  He has the "it" factor. He is the type of player that we all know.  The one to take over and be the hero when the team needs him most.  Kemba is cold blooded.  The Bobcats have a winning record (momentarily) for the first time since god knows when and they have won three straight, due to the marvelous play of their young point guard.

Charlotte Bobcats Win 3 in a Row, Nation Prepares to Be Sent to Soviet Reeducation Camps

I find the start to this season to be not just surprising but unfathomable.  Last month if you had told me that the Bobcats would start the season 4-3 with a three-game winning streak, I would have assumed it was a sick joke.  Incidentally, this also would have been my response if you’d told me [...]

Thomas saved the ball to a teammate, and about 12 seconds later Ramon Sessions converted a driving layup. It was one...

Bizarre Finish Between Cats And Wolves Culminates In Kemba Walker Game Winner

Short four starters and half of their normal active roster, Wednesday’s version of the Minnesota Timberwolves were about as undermanned a team as I’ve seen since Don Nelson was forced to exercise a little-known rule and put a fouled-out Warrior in the game during his most recent stint with Golden State. Lucky for Rick Adelman, his group of nine healthy bodies (one more...
