It’s good to have Antoine Walker news that involves a basketball court and not a court of law.
Walker is about to join the Idaho Stampede for the upcoming D-League season, the team announced Thursday. The former Celtics All-Star averaged 16 points per game in 43 games for Idaho last season. He had a 12-year NBA career but has’t been in the Association since 2008.
“I can’t wait to get back to Boise,” Walker said in a released and certainly cleaned up statement. “It’s a great place to live and I’m hoping I can help this team make the playoffs and win a championship – we’ve got some unfinished business to tend to.”
Walker has had all sorts of off-the court drama, and he has tried to get back to the NBA to make some money and help pay off massive casino debts. But this is not the time to dwell on that. Hopefully he is past it, and he is back on the court where I’d prefer to remember the swagger and the shimmy rather than what followed.
