Fan frustration on some Charlotte sports-talk radio programs and Twitter of late has often suggested there should be a coaching change at the end of the season. “It has nothing to do with him,” Walker said of the Hornets sitting 10th in the Eastern Conference, two spots out of the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. “He does a great job, he’s a fantastic coach. He always does his best to give us the right game plan, to try and get wins. “I’m 100 percent behind him. I believe in him.”
