I want to root against Kemba Walker, but I simply can't. He picked up apart my beloved Villanova Wildcats time and time again, but I have the ultimate respect for Kemba. Walker embodied the leadership role during Connecticut's run to the National Championship. Kemba showed the type of progression that you love to see in a budding star, as he went from averaging 9 points during his freshman year, to 14.6 during his sophomore year, and finally 23.5 during his junior year. His talent is undeniable and he has shown that he won't crumble late in games. He hit so many "clutch" shots to win games this year, but that's not even why I love watching him play. He is one of the most well-rounded guards we have seen in college basketball in the past decade or so. He isn't a great defender, but his effort makes him effective. Standing at 6'1, Kemba isn't exactly a big body, but he's a solid rebounder. He uses his smarts to grab boards and when he gets the ball, he turns around and uses his blazing speed to start a one man fast break.
