Often when fans are chanting MVP for their favorite player, it’s laughable. The guy’s not close to the conversation.
Kemba Walker is in that conversation, maybe on the fringes of it but in the conversation. He deserves those chants.
And he got them, scoring 43 against Boston Tuesday night in the game after he scored 60 (in a loss to Philly). Walker was on fire. Again.
The Boston Celtics have issues, rebounding and otherwise, but for now let’s celebrate Walker.
New Hornets coach James Borego has brought Spurs-like spacing to the Charlotte offense, there’s no Dwight Howard clogging the lane either, and Walker is eating up that space and destroying teams. And if you lay back on him to take away the drives it will rain threes down on you.
Walker might be the most entertaining player in the NBA this season.
