Antoine Walker – Don’t Call It A Comeback

Last summer Antoine Walker announced that he would begin working his way back to the NBA, and most thought it was a joke.  Or at least an unreasonable ecpectation.  Walker had been hampered with weight issues, bankruptcy issues, and declining basketball skills, the combination of which seemed like it would might sink the former wildcat.  Apparently no one told him.

Walker, 34, has been playing with the Idaho Stampede during this seasons NBA D-League and looks to be making a legitimate case for an NBA contract.  While his team hasn’t been doing great, Walker has been putting up the numbers – three games with 25 points on the road, and a 28 points, 8 boards, and 5 assists effort at home last night.  Several NBA execs and assistants have been to watch, and most agree that Walker has what it takes to make it back into the league.

Surely some team out there is in need of a shimmy.  The league as a better place when Antoine is a part of it.

    It’s too bad Texas Tech and Mike Leach are about to get the hammer laid on them, cause I think he would be a terrific replacement

    I like the photogs expression at bottom left… She’s like “is he having a seizure?”

    Walker needs to join the LA Clippers …. Bledsoe, Griffin & him would possibly be my favorite team, not a big NBA fan period though.

    Man, Toine’ use to be my favorite my player to wear the Kentucky jersey but ever since I saw that pic of him in the Louisville T-shirt and him always practicing w/ UL and with Pitino….I lost all respect for him. Not to mention I don’t think he has came around since he left Kentucky…I almost put him w/ in the same group as McCarty/Massielo/Mercer

    #5 I’m not gonna blast you but I may use your videos as sleep aids… If you think any of our players watching the 1st video could get past the 4 minute mark, I would kindly disagree.

    Say what you will about Pitino, but props to him for helping him out. RP helped him lose a ton of weight and helped get him back into shape.
