Kemba Walker's second-year surge continued Saturday night. The Charlotte Bobcats guard double-doubled with 14 points and 10 assists. The former UCONN Huskie added a three-pointer, four steals and four rebounds. His Achilles heel continues to be his shooting. He made just six-of-17 shots in a loss to the Sacramento Kings Saturday and he's making 43.1 percent of his shots for the season. The year has been good to Kemba. He's improved his shooting (43.1 percent vs. 36.6 last season), assists (5.6 vs. 4.4), steals (1.9 vs. .9), blocks (.4 vs. .3) and points per game (17.5 vs. 12.1). His scoring has slowed down since December when he was averaging 19.8 points per game. Walker is leading the team in scoring, assists and steals. He's definitely on a star track even for the woeful Bobcats.

Thomas has been an abject failure for the Bobcats, and Warrick is better than him [...]
