Walker a winner, for better or worse

3

A great article on Kemba Walker and what the "winner" label means for him. However, one item in this article peaked my interest. But at the very least, he has an encouraging history. When he was a pass-first point guard coming out of Rice High School (N.Y.), some wondered whether Walker would ever develop the necessary scoring skills. But after becoming an energy scorer off the bench in his freshman year at UConn and taking another major leap this past summer to become "the man" on a roster that at times appeared nearly barren, he’s progressed to the point where we question his ability to be a pass-first point guard. This is interesting. Everyone thinks of Kemba as a guard who may struggle passing the ball. Yet when he came out of high school, Kemba was thought of as a pass-first point guard who may not be able to score at a high level. Why is that? It makes me wonder if Kemba had to change his game in order for UCONN to win? If that is the case, it does bode well for him to become a good all around point guard, rather than this undersized shooting guard that he is currently being billed as.
