2. Kemba Walker
Kemba Walker is the second leading scorer in the NBA behind only Steph Curry. Prior to this year, when you were talking about the best point guards in the NBA, I guarantee Steph Curry would be the first name you said and Kemba Walker wouldn’t be mentioned.
Prior to this season, I wrote a list of the Top 10 players in the Eastern Conference. I didn’t even consider Kemba. Now he’s an MVP candidate. He’s also in the last year of his contract. Whoever signs him next should just throw another 1-year deal at him. This is one of the best ‘fuck you pay me’ seasons we’ve seen in a while.
