I still think Cam's best role is as a small ball 4 off the bench. As a starter, I still believe there is the match-up concern of not being athletic or quick enough to be a true starting 3 and not being strong enough or a good enough rebounder, rim protector or interior defender to be a true starting 4. He does strike me more and more as an ideal sixth man type, though, particularly if he can be a reliable shooter/scorer.

He can be like Clarkston but a better shooter

Better defender too. I think he’s an underrated defender.
Yeah that's been a real surprise. For a player billed as just a long distance shooter he's shown a fairly complete game. Maybe not great at anything else but not bad either.

yeah. I think if he developed his handles, he could be an even scarier weapon off the bench... said Captain Obvious.

what I really love about him is he’s fearless. He can shoot 0-6 for the game, but if he gets the ball for a big shot in the 4th, he’s firing and has hit multiple times in that scenario. I wish Mikal had that kind of confidence.

Somewhat off topic right now, may seem like a downer a bit but does it seem like all the national media talk is just about CP3?

I thought that at first but its evened out since the final Clipper game, from what I've seen.

Here's a good Booker piece...
