Kemba Walker RumorsAll NBA Players
Q: I saw on Twitter that you refer to Kemba Walker as ‘Dad.’ Do you call him that to his face? Frank Kaminsky: Yeah, I always call him “Dad.” One day in the locker room, someone joked, “You have to call Kemba ‘Dad’ from now on.” So I did. He says that I’m his favorite white guy now, so that’s a positive and I take great pride in that.
Players are often judged by how they use their time away from the court. The summer months are what defines players. This past summer, Walker worked extensively on his shooting and his pick-and-roll game. He’s added a Steve Nash-type of element to his game when it comes to his pick-and-roll play. He even spent a few days over the summer working with Nash to help refine some of his skills. “Hard work pays off every time,” Walker said. “I don’t think there is nobody in this league who say they work harder than me. Maybe as hard, but not harder. It’s just showing. It’s showing.”
“I’m just playing basketball,” Walker said. “[I’m] trying to win games and get to the playoffs. If I can make the All-Star game, that’s great. If not, who cares? I just want to win. I want to just keep getting better everyday. I want to make the playoffs, man. That’s the main goal.
