I think Stroud is marginally better as well. No question he is a better shooter, and better athlete. Last year, Stroud looked unmotivated on defense, and as a result, was way below par. I do think Kennedy has been solid on defense this year, and that is a big plus for me. I do think Kennedy is the more coachable of the two. I'm just not sure he will ever be any where close to a consistent shooter based on his mechanics.The couple times I’ve seen Stroud play this year, he is better than Kennedy. I’ve been blown away by Kennedy’s “potential” only to see it go dormant for the next 8-10 games. I’d say Kennedy does play better defense, however the difference is nearly negligible.
