Kemba Walker Might Be The Next John Wall

Any basketball fans in D.C. watching the Georgetown Hoyas' loss to the Connecticut Huskies tonight may have noticed something familiar: a point guard capable of scoring lots of points, generating lots of assists, and fully dominating an important college basketball game.

The player I'm describing here is Kemba Walker, and the word "college" is the operable term.

Walker had 31 points, 10 assists, and seven rebounds in Connecticut's win, helping to break Georgetown's eight-game winning streak. Walker's performance tonight, and his potential for success in the future, should remind us all of John Wall at a similar stage in his career with the Kentucky Wildcats last season. Wall was the first overall pick in the NBA Draft, and Walker could be as well.

But despite his speed and vision, Wall hasn't had quite as much success at the professional level as he had in college. Will Walker be any more successful, assuming he chooses to leave college after this junior season? Only time will tell.
