Its been a rough year or so for Antoine Walker. At one point he was robbed, at another point he was cut by a Puerto Rican basketball team and oh yeah there was also that little thing of him blowing through $100,000,000 and becoming bankrupt. Whereas he used to be the Don Juan, now his name is just Toine. But there is some good news on the way. Yahoo.com today named the above picture, the most bloggable NBA picture on the internet. Toine’s shimmy, while the play was going on behind him, was picked over the drunk Nash/Nowitski pictures, a Manute Bol shot and other legendary NBA goofy pictures. It is a testament to all of Toine’s “Toineness” and is something he can keep with him for generations to come.
Also, any time I hear, see or read about Antoine Walker, I always think of one of my favorite quotes of any athlete ever. When asked early in his career with the Celtics, why he shot so many threes:
“Because there arent any fours.”
Toine for life…
