“I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”

That pretty much sums up how UConn star Kemba Walker feels about the lockout. Except, Walker has no choice but to take more of it. He’s not part of the NBA union (he was drafted by the Bobcats but no rookies could sign a deal) and he has yet to draw any kind of paycheck.

He explained his mood to the Washington Times.

“Angry,” Walker said. “I’m angry because I can’t do anything. I can’t talk to my team, I can’t talk to my coaching staff and start learning things from them, I can’t get involved with the team at all. It pretty much [stinks].

“I would like to get acclimated to the NBA game. I know there’s a big difference from college to the NBA, so not getting a chance to learn, it’s pretty hard.”

Kemba, we’re all pretty angry about the lockout. And none of us can do squat about it. We’re with you.

In fact, the whole “mad as hell” rant sums up our feelings pretty well right now.
