Just like DeMar DeRozan with the Raptors, Kemba Walker is becoming a player to look out for. The parallels are deep, as Walker is putting the Hornets on his back, with a great supporting cast. Each year, they are silently getting better.
Kemba Walker is still getting overlooked by the mainstream sports media, along with many others, but his time is coming. If this is of any comfort to Hornets fans, they are doing one game better than they were last season, during this time. Also, Kemba is out here making history.
To start tonight’s game against the Miami Heat, Kemba Walker’s first points put him at 7,000 career points. That total also made him fourth on the Charlotte Hornets all-time scoring list. Kemba Walker is behind Dell Curry, Gerald Wallace, and Larry Johnson, but he holds the record for points in a game at 52 against Utah, last season.
