    Like a lot of these deals right now...

    Looks like an overpay right now, but will look solid once the new media deal kicks in.

    Would probably look better offensively if he wasn't on the freaking Hornets, but yeah, that is too much money.

    He's worth it in the long run.....Especially with the cap increase.

    Coming off of 17/6/4 season and he's only 24. The best thing about him is that he's a natural leader. As he keeps getting better, hopefully gets some better teammates and starts learning how to win this will be a very good contract.

    He had a season very similar to Lowry's (statistically) and he got the same contract Lowry did. Kemba is 4 years younger than Lowry and is still improving and hasn't reached his prime yet. I think Lowry is at or near his ceiling.

    Not too much at all. This is a good deal.

    I would say he's a significant upgrade over Lin.

    shooting sub 40 percent, and only averaging 17 and 6. If lin jacked up shots, I'm sure he could do the same.

    he's a very solid defender...the hornets really had no shooters for him to dish to. if they could surround jefferson and walker with some solid shooters he will improve significantly (lance is a good start, but they need an offensive upgrade over MKG).

    am i the only one who thinks hes being overpaid ?? so many better point guards are alot cheaper, (Dragic, Conley), (Rondo, Lowery) to name a few.

    Could this not have waited ? The cats have no idea how lance and kemba will mesh and was he really going to get a much better offer elsewhere?'if so they let him go and get a better pg cause I kinda don't rate him
