Walker spent most of the year backing up D.J. Augustin. There were bright spots — a triple-double, nine 20-plus point games — but losing took its toll. He shot 36.6 percent from the field, and many doubted he would translate college stardom to the NBA. As charismatic and energetic as Walker generally is, it is tough to be full of life when your team can’t even compete. “He had his down days, for sure,” Silas said. “He struggled at times, especially when we were losing multiple games in a row and it didn’t seem like there was any hope.”
That freedom was earned. “He’s a student of the game,” Clifford said, praising Walker’s professionalism, pride and desire to win. When he is at the front of the room like a teacher’s pet, he is “not doing it for show,” Hornets guard Jeremy Lamb said. Every game, Walker must know the ins and outs of what Charlotte and its opponents are trying to do. He wants to reward his coach for having confidence in him.
Nate Jones: Also a really nice dude. Met him for the first time this summer at the 2K launch and then he went out of his way to say what’s up to me at this Nike event a few weeks later. Low maintenance…Chills in Charlotte low key all summer except for endorsement obligations.
