    On the other factors outside of outside shooting tho, he is as advertised. He also throws UL up constantly which is awesome. I hope he gets his offense better to help his already great game.

    Ah be careful with that body ERECTION deal---could make it HARD to shoot!!! Couldn't help it!!!

    He actually had two drives where he got a layup and had a drive & dish for a dunk as well, all in the last 2-3 minutes. He also made four free throws.

    If he can work on a fairly consistent jump shot he will be deadly, if he doesn't make them respect his shot, defenses will start to sag and make those passing and driving lanes a lot tighter, but he is doing very well and he is young.

    I like how a reply on one of those was asking when he'll be considered for Rookie of the Year. Kennedy replies, "When voters start watching games and not just looking at stats."

    The Magic have a lot of good shooters so his shooting on this team is not as important. He drives and passes to shooter if they collapse on him. I watched the game against the Rockets and his game really fits that team. They have really improved. The Magic just beat Chicago and the Rockets in consectutive games. If he does improve his shooting, he would be very hard to handle.

    That's what I'm saying, he is doing what he is doing without shooting, if he can just be decent shooting and consistent at the FT line he will be very good for a long time. I'm not saying he has to be the leading scorer but at some point in the nba if someone backs off you 6 feet... You gotta knock that down. When they start to defend that he will drive right by them. He just has to be decent, he will be.
