Layups: Antoine Walker Coming Back?

Posted by Neil Paine on May 6, 2010

The horror...

"Former NBA All-Star Antoine Walker is eyeing an NBA comeback. Louisville coach Rick Pitino says Walker will work out with several [Louisville] Cardinals during the next few weeks. Walker hasn't played in the NBA since 2008 and has suffered legal and financial woes since stepping away from the game ... Pitino, who coached Walker at Kentucky in the 1990s, said he also hopes Walker will talk to his players about the temptations that come with life as a professional."

    What kind of God would allow such a thing to happen!?

    Today's reminder that there must be a better way: "All-NBA" 1st/2nd/3rd team selections voted by "a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters".

    Of course, there are better ways already thanks to sites like this -- including win-shares.

    What would those selections look like based on something more substantial than the whim, fancy or fandom of "sportswriters" and "broadcasters?"

    Awesome, hopefully he can sign with the Clippers so I can see that which is Antoine Walker, 3-pt specialist and NBA champion.

    Yeah, because those selections are an outrage, huh?

    Walker responded, "You will be tempted to shoot three pointers. Lots of three pointers. Don't fight it."

    They said he played briefly in Puerto Rico this season... Does that league's rules have a provision for 4-pointers?
