A RIVAL SCOUT SIZES UP THE BOBCATS
I see Michael Kidd-Gilchrist as more Jeff Green than Kevin Durant. I don't know what his go-to offensive move is—he's not a low-post player, he's not a jump shooter, he's not a pick-and-roll guy.... They got a keeper in Bismack Biyombo, who showed he can be an impact defender—especially around the rim. He's raw, but he has great feet and great balance. There are a lot of guys who are athletic; what sets Biyombo apart is a willingness to be a great defender.... They needed scoring in the worst way, so Ben Gordon can get all the shots that he needs, although he doesn't do much else.... I don't think anyone outside of Charlotte is convinced Kemba Walker is a point guard. To be fair, he did not play point exclusively at UConn, so that was a transition. On top of that, he was being called upon to score. He was stretched. It showed in his play.... Gerald Henderson's ability to knock down mid-range shots has developed to the point where defenses don't just play him to drive. There's a confidence there that borders on being chippy. The team has to be encouraged that they at least hit on a rotation player if not a solid NBA starter.
