Said Lin of his new relationship with Walker: “The biggest thing is – and that’s not just me and Kemba (Walker), it’s any basketball relationship – you have to want to see the other person succeed. I’ve been very impressed with who Kemba is as a person and how down to earth and humble he is. We’ve been able to get along off the court and carry that onto the court and it’s been fun. I love playing with him.” Said Walker of what Lin brings to the court when they are on it together: “It takes a lot of pressure off me. I don’t always have to go back for the basketball every time. When he’s out there, he’s helping me with the pace, with the tempo. He’s very unselfish and he can score the basketball very well. So that’s fun.”
After being selected with the 9th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, point guard Kemba Walker signed a 4-year shoe deal with Under Armour during the summer before his lockout-shortened rookie season with the Charlotte Hornets was to begin. The deal expired earlier this month in September, and the two sides have decided to part ways, clearing the way for Kemba to be a sneaker free agent. Sources with the brand had nothing but positive things to say about Walker, who’s leadership, clutch poise and insistence on taking and making shots down the stretch have earned him a starting role in the league and a 4-year, $48 Million contract extension with the Hornets.
