But when James Borrego mentioned he was strongly considering adding an assistant coach he was familiar with from their days together in Orlando to his new staff with the Hornets, Kemba Walker was downright giddy. He could barely hold back the tidal wave of enthusiasm racing through his 28-year-old body as the name “Jay Hernandez” rolled off Borrego’s tongue. “I was excited just because I lost my whole coaching staff, guys who I was used to for the last four years,” Walker told The Athletic. “And Jay is a guy who makes me comfortable and I just know what he brings. So for me, shit I was excited man. I was super happy to have him around because they brought in a guy that I know, that knows me. I know him and it’s been a long time since I worked with him. But yeah man, it was exciting because I couldn’t work with him in the summer when he was in Orlando. So that sucked for a very long time. To get back with him, I was hyped.”
No longer separated by the league’s governing rules as if it were as big as the Atlantic Ocean, on the late-May day they finally officially reconvened smiles were permanently frozen on their faces. “It was great. Even just the first time I was in the gym and he walked in, it was a surreal moment,” Hernandez said. “He just yelled out, ‘My guy!’ He was just so amped up. He started clapping. We gave each other a big hug and it just felt right.”
“It’s great for the city, great for the community,” Walker told USA TODAY Sports. “I’m excited. This city is excited. It’s about time we got an event like this here in Charlotte. “Charlotte means a lot to me. This city has embraced me – allowed me to be who I am, allowed me to grow as a man. I just love the city. This team drafted me, believed in me when I was young.”
