Season Review

  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Gerald Henderson

    By Brett on May 14, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Gerald Henderson 13.4 13.1 (+0.3) Strengths: After 5 seasons in the league, Gerald is who he is. A decent midrange shooter who plays solid defense on the ball, and can provide a spectacular highlight on either end of the court, using his length and leaping ability to soar for a dunk or block at the rim. […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Kemba Walker

    By Michael Kaskey-Blomain on May 12, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Kemba Walker 17.1 16.5 (+0.6) After a solid 2012-13 campaign in which he improved in almost every area, many were looking for Kemba Walker to take the next step this season. While Walker’s game didn’t regress after his successful sophomore season, it didn’t appear to make significant strides either. Overall, his play appeared to plateau, and […]
  • Season Report Card ’13-14: Josh McRoberts

    By Spencer Percy on May 9, 2014
    PER PER Against (Net) Josh McRoberts 14.9 16.9 (-2.0) Strengths: Basketball IQ, unselfishness, offensive connector, energy, and his hair + beard combo — some action words to describe the positives that McBob brings to the floor. He was the consummate team player for the roster this season and ended up being one of the most reliable + consistent starters that […]
  • Season Report Card: Kemba Walker

    By Greg Pietras on May 21, 2013
    PER PER Against (Net) Kemba Walker 18.9 16.3 (+2.6) Strengths: Kemba’s season was one long sigh of relief. Drafted in 2011 as one of the bedrocks of Charlotte’s rebuilding effort, his rookie year was a disappointment (in part for reasons beyond his control). The second year was much better. A lot of that had to do with Walker’s improving efficiency […]
  • Season Report Card: Ben Gordon

    By Mathew Lewis on May 17, 2013
      PER PER Against (Net) Ben Gordon 12.74 17.54 (-4.8) Strengths: He can shoot. That’s about it. But that’s obviously still a valuable NBA skill, so a tip of the cap to The Scottish Terrier (my nickname for him for many years – you know he looks like one). Gordon led the team in 3P% at .387 (career .404), many […]
  • Season Report Card: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    By Greg Pietras on May 16, 2013
    PER PER Against (Net) Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 14.0 16.3 (-2.3) Strengths: MKG’s most immediate and obvious strength this year was his rebounding. On a team that desperately needed help there, he pulled down a very solid 8.1 rebounds per 36 minutes. Those don’t appear to be empty numbers, either: When he was on the floor, Charlotte’s total rebound percentage improved from […]
  • Season Report Card: Ramon Sessions

    By Spencer Percy on May 14, 2013
    PER PER Against (Net) Ramon Sessions 17.80 15.00 (+2.8) Strengths: Getting to the rim in transition and in the half court is Sessions’ specialty — there are few players in the league who I’ve seen blitz the rim on a dead sprint like Sessions does. It ends in a lot of trips to the foul line — he was 11th […]
  • Season Report Card: Byron Mullens

    By Greg Pietras on May 13, 2013
    PER PER Against (Net) Byron Mullens 12.4 22.6 (-10.2) Strengths: For Byron, we might be better off calling this “Areas of Improvement” rather than “Strengths.” This year saw a fundamental change in the way Mullens was played; instead of relying on the long midrange jumper, he drastically increased his three-point attempts (5.2 per 36 vs. 1.3 last year). It’s a […]
  • Season Report Card: Jeff Adrien

    By Spencer Percy on May 11, 2013
    PER PER Against (Net) Jeff Adrien 13.39 16.49 (-3.1) Strengths: Well, his strength. Literally, Adrien is very strong and can body up with most players in this league around the basket. He moves very well, is fairly quick for his size and has good lateral quickness — combine that to go with his powerful frame and it makes for an […]
  • Season Report Card: Jeff Taylor

    By Mathew Lewis on May 10, 2013
        PER PER Against (Net) Jeff Taylor 10.33 17.23 (-6.9) Strengths: Taylor showed the ability to hit the NBA three at a decent clip (.344 on 154 attempts) and at times demonstrated the skills that at some point in the (hopefully near) future may enable him to be a plus perimeter defender in the League. He isn’t there yet […]
