#15 Kemba Walker | G

Right handed.... Walker is an excellent athlete who can change the game with his elite-level quickness and speed. He is an explosive force with the ball in his hands, scoring both inside and out. He can use one-dribble move, often going to his low-crossover, to create separation between him and his defender, keep them off balance and attack. At this point, with his improved game, Walker has developed into a complete offensive player- demonstrating his perimeter jumper or weaving through the defense to get to the rim… He shows a tremendous amount of heart and toughness with each take into the lane. Lacking great size and strength, he is fearless with the ball in his hands… He is at his best driving the lane, where he can score in the paint, get the foul line and convert or find teammates off his penetration… Walker is a proven defender, using his quickness and active hands to play the passing lanes. He has the speed to create full-court pressure on opposing guards and force turnovers… He has developed into a vocal leader as a junior. He calls the plays when he plays both guard spots, with or without the ball…

The one attribute really holding Walker back is his height. He is about 5'11" at best and some scouts believe that he will struggle with bigger, stronger guards. His size will hurt him at the next level… We don't mind Walker's score-first instincts because he has been excellent this season, but he doesn't have the court vision to be a full-time point guard. He is more of score first, pass second guard. He just doesn't have a great feel for getting his teammates involved…
