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.

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.”
