Ok, I know what you are thinking. Do I want the Bobcats to collect Point Guards like Marty Hurney would collect RBs?  No, but I do want the Bobcats to actually have a star? Yes please.

And, after watching Trey Burke in the NCAA tournament, can anyone say for sure this kid is definitely not star material?  He is special. He can drive it. Shoot the pullup. Drain the 3. Dristribute and play defense. Plus, Spike Albrecht is not available.

He is a better pure Point Guard than Kemba.   As improved as Kemba is, I still have questions about his ability to distribute.  He only averages 5 assists per game.  Is that just because he doesn’t have enough help or is he just lacking that true PG gene?  We don’t know the answer for sure either way.

All I am saying right now is that the Bobcats should not rule Trey Burke out. Keep an open mind. No one on this team should be considered untouchable. It is now a point guards league and if the pre draft process tells them that Trey is the best player in the draft, they should consider making him the pick.

There are worse things to do than build around that kid.  Plus, Kemba is their most tradeable asset.  At this stage of the building process, nothing should be off limits and everything should be explored.
