Default Re: Kawhi Leonard: Could he be a realistic candidate for Rookie of the Year?

Kemba will be carrying Charlotte,Jackson and Crush are gone, so he'll be the focal point on offense. Tyreke evans/marcus thornton will over shadow jimmer.. Beasley/kevin love will overshadow rubio. I don't see anyone in a better position to win ROY than kemba. And if he pulls out sportcenters top 10 plays to win some games, i think he's a top 3 candidate for ROY.

Love the move by SA and love Leonard's game. Think he can contribute on the defensive end immediately. But he won't score near enough on a solid, veteran team to get much ROY consideration.

While I don't doubt Kemba's ability, will they be starting a DJ Augustin/Kemba backcourt? That's very undersized. Unless Kemba's moving full-time to the point, they'll probably have to continue to start Gerald Henderson at the 2.

Probably some pretty divided minutes between Kemba and DJ. Although i dont doubt they'll test a small backcourt.

How was Gerald for them last year?

He has the opportunity to become our starting 3.
He looks like a nice talent. But he doesn't look ready enough to be the type of scorer that would warrant ROY consideration. He doesn't look anywhere close to the best player in the draft - he didn't go tenth because he's the best. And SA gets nice players late usually, not stars by trading up to 10. i don't see it at all.

Kyrie Irving would be my guess. He's going to get starter minutes and run a team. You'll see atleast something like 15\6 with potential for more. After that I think it's kinda wide open. I'd say Derrick Williams if he doesn't stay in Minny but I think he will.
