If Kwame gets his act together, he can be the Bobcats starting center and become the player Ervin Johnson was during his prime in Milwaukee - tough defender of the paint, shot blocker, solid rebounder, solid energy player on offense.
Book it. It's his starting spot at center, if he plays well. And he's got a real shot.
Ervin ran the floor really well , trying to stay in front of his assignment for the defensive end.
Kwame had Collin's under his freshman year , then Jackson in LA , now he has the master teacher in Brown.
I'd say if he doesn't average 28 minutes and 10 boards and 1.5 blocks a game and 3 fouls , his career will be over.
I hope he does well, and i think L.Brown has the juice to get that out of K. Brown ... and i would have to think MJ probably has mello'ed enough to use Kwame in practice instead of a whipping post , a guy to loosen'up the locker room. from what the Lakers said he was a great locker room team mate.
At this point Kwame is the better player. If Charlotte can not get anything for Damp, I expect them to cut him, and for him to sign with a contender who needs 6 fouls and 10-15 minutes.
No he's not and its not close.
Brown is not good at defense either. He can defend his own guy in the post, but he drops rebounds with his small hands and doesn't undestand off ball or team defense. No offensive game. He's a body, a backup to Nazr Mohammed, teaming with Diop. Dampier was acquired as a trade chip and/or salary relief. He was never going to stay for 13 mil. Kwame is 10 mil cheaper.
