[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Avery Bradley IS better than Kemba Walker! : Walker is 5'11. He is no Allen Iverson! ( the last guy to be dynamic at that height) Heck, he is no Ben Gordon! Ben Gordon is 6'2"! And a better shooter! I'm not saying he is going to stink, but an all star is a long shot. I think Avery can be a starter in the Derek Fisher mold because he has more size and defensive ability. Kemba is going to keep both teams in the game at the NBA level. Who can he stop?

So you insult Kemba by 2" from what he is listed and assume Gordon's listed height to be accurate?
I am a 6'2" man who had classes with Ben Gordan and was at more than a few parties with him during my UConn days. I was taller.
I stood next to Kemba in line at Friendly's 3 months ago and while def shorter than me he was no 5'11".
I'd say 6' Kemba, 6'1" Gordon.
Kemba is a winner who can do EVERYTHING well but nothing (except maybe his smooth fastbreak layups) so exceptional as to make him elite at it in the NBA.
He will be a glue guy, a leader, a starting PG on a team with great players at other positions or a VERY good backup on a team that has a taller PG who can swing to the 2 and play with him.
Avery looks like a bulldog defender of PG's but he plays that leadership and sound decision making position like his heads been cut-off. He may get the fluid offensive game of Walker down the road, but is only 1 year younger and certainly doesn't have it now.
He'd be good on a team with a ball dominating 20ppg guy like Tyreke Evans who creates his own shot, has a good handle and can play some PG but is better off guarding 2's and letting Avery defend a PG like a demon and share the duties of bringing the ball up the court.
