    Coming off a 2011 NCAA championship with UConn, Walker’s NBA career started off slow, with many doubting if the 6-1 Bronx born guard has the frame to compete at the next level. Even with trade rumors circulating around his time in 704 country coming into this season, hes evolved into a franchise player and undeniable all-star. Walkers feeling were felt in his post-game interview.
