<div class="quote_poster">Quoting Jurassic:</div><div class="quote_post">Man, with a player this young you cannot look at a single year. He started 23 games total in the two years before that. You have to look at his career. Last year he started most games, but has he proven that he can do that consistantly?</div>In fact, it's just the opposite. With a player this young, you can't look at anything to show what he will do - it could be anything. According to your logic, Zach Randolph shouldn't have been given a chance this last year. In two years he had started a total of 11 games, averaging 13 mpg. He hadn't proven he could do anything consistently. But he committed to his game, they gave him the opportunity to step up into a much larger role, and BAM! 20 ppg, 10.5 rpg, 80 games started. Not saying the same will happen with Kwame, but Kwame's the same age Randolph was before last year (22), and he's put up better stats - the only difference is people had expectations of Kwame, not nearly as much of Randolph. Those expectations are pretty much gone now - if he can buckle down and get to work, I wouldn't be surprised to see 14-8 a game from him this season.
