Once again, the Charlotte Bobcats have been nothing but a disappointment so far during the 2012-13 season and with an 11-33 record–it’s safe to say this is a team that won’t be going to the playoffs once again come April. As sad as it sounds, this team has been in rebuilding mode for a few years now, but there is one player the organization should be excited for when it comes to a potential All-Star in the future in Kemba Walker.
The Bobcats knew there was something special in Walker when he was selected in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft and while he put up decent numbers as a rookie, Walker seems to be developing even more in his second season with the team. In fact, Walker even recorded a career-high 35 points last week against the Houston Rockets and is averaging 17.9 points per game on the season to go along with 5.8 assists.
It’s no secret Charlotte doesn’t have much to cheer about, but at least there’s some hope in the future when it comes to a player like Walker. If this season is any indication of what’s in store for the future, Walker could easily develop into one of the league’s top scorers and he even has the chance to emerge as one of the team’s top leaders.
Playoffs may be out of the question at this point, but at least the Bobcats can rely on Walker gaining more experience to get better and better over the course of time.
