If The Raptors Had Kemba Walker They Would Be A Lock For The Finals 

Post#1 » by HornetsFan29 » Wed Apr 19, 2017 7:44 pm

lowry has always been overrated by raptor fans and Kemba always outplays him when the hornets/raptors play so I just say if the Raptors had the same team but with Kemba their starting PG They would a sure lock for the nba finals.

Kemba is a huge upgrade over lowry and yes by adding Kemba over him they would really improve and I'm not sure the Cavs could beat them this year I mean the cavs are not looking like world beaters this year.

And here's an example of Walker being grossly overrated by Hornet's fans.

Nice troll though.

I'm just waiting for somebody to post Walker's entire 2016 playoff stats. Including that 3/16, 9 point clunker in game 7

Yep, when people think of franchise players, ones that can propel their teams to championships, they think of Kemba Walker

A team that could really use Walker is the Milwaukee Bucks. A dynamic shooting/scoring PG is what they're missing, they would be blowing Toronto out of the water if they had Kemba.

Yeah he sucked every other game against Miami. Couldn't make a single layup. And that's coming from someone that loves Kemba.

Walker wouldn't help the Bucks as much as you think. He would take the ball out of Giannis and Middleton's hands while providing far worse defense than Brogdan and Delle. I think Bucks are better with the ball in the hands of those 2 players on offense and having all those long armed defenders who can switch everything in defense.

I like kemba just as much as the next guy, but that’s some weird hyperbole right there…

His performance in last year’s playoffs doesn’t really help your case, either.

Kemba is a lot better than Middleton. He could be a pressure valve for Giannis and make clutch shots down the stretch

Yup. Giannis needs the ball in his hands as much as possible. Right now theyre missing Jabari big time. Jabari was able to be a 20 point scorer while mostly playing off the ball with his ability to cut and catch and shoot and those times when Giannis did sit, Jabari could create his own shot as well.

Yes, Kemba Walker is the missing puzzle piece for not only Toronto, but every team in the East.

Nah. Lowry > Kemba.
