It is also clear that Walker holds the Celtics in a special place in his heart. Like the rest of us, the 45-year-old caught wind of reports linking Boston to a Kevin Durant trade that will potentially send Jaylen Brown in the opposite direction. Let’s just say that Walker isn’t happy about this prospect (h/t Johnnie Martinez of sportskeeda): “I am so disappointed this morning because I think this is a terrible decision,” Walker said. “This will be a terrible decision to go in, and I know people will be like, ‘This is Kevin Durant. This is arguably a top three player in the league! Of course, you make a trade for that.’ You don’t tear up what you’ve worked so hard to build.”
On the Celtics retiring his jersey… Antoine Walker: That would be a dream of mine but I also understand that sometimes you might be a part of that pattern, but I also believe that I was part of the rebuilding the Celtics getting them back to the playoffs and putting the buzz back in town after some tough years. We all know the Len Bias story, Reggie Lewis story (RIP)… so when I came in it was tough and the Boston organization was down for a little bit but I thought me and Paul did a good job creating a buzz and getting back and I’ve felt that I was always part of this organization; this is my second home, the Celtics have always treated me like I was part of it. That would be a dream come true, but if not as long as I can be a part of the team and what they got going on here, able to attend games, the people always have open arms like they have done for me that’ll be satisfying enough for me as well.
“Despite everything you’re saying, people will still sit back and laugh at us,” said Beasley. “Look at what Antoine Walker went through and people just sat there and made jokes about it. Even Allen Iverson was a joke to them for a while. “Being black is so fake right now. Motherf***rs only care when someone dies and it’s time for the cameras to show up. People are out here every day saying that they need help. It’s in the music we’re listening to. Everyone needs help, but everyone is out here walking like they have it all together.”
