Spurs guard Lonnie Walker IV wasn’t about to sit on the sidelines after seeing the damage done to San Antonio’s central business district by rioters follow Saturday night’s peaceful protest march in memory of George Floyd. “I take great pride in saying that I live in San Antonio,” Walker said. “I am part of this community.” Walker joined volunteers who flocked to downtown Sunday morning to assist with clean-up efforts after storefronts and buildings were damaged along Houston Street near Alamo Plaza and at the Shops at Rivercenter mall.
Walker stressed that his efforts to aid with the clean up had nothing to do with his celebrity status. “I am just trying to be another human being playing my part,” he said. “I am not Lonnie Walker who plays for the Spurs. I am not an NBA player. I am just a regular human being trying to do what we are supposed to do, and that’s to create peace, positivity and joy throughout everybody’s lives.”

Walker told the mayor he’s been trying to stay consistent by doing body weight exercises, like sit ups and push ups, but he’s also maintaining a healthy diet. Nirenberg says he’s held on to a “bare bones” squat rack that he’s using to boost his mental health three to four times a week. “Things are pretty heavy right now, but we’ll get through all of this,” Nirenberg added. “But I need a little quiet time in addition to gym time.”
Rudy Gay was happy to play a role in helping Lonnie Walker IV showcase his athletic skills in the Spurs’ 136-109 romp over Detroit on Saturday night. Letting the ball go just as he passed half court, Gay assisted on Walker’s soaring, on-the-run alley-oop dunk that gave the Spurs a 34-32 lead with 10:13 left in the first half. White also recorded an alley-oop slam in the fourth quarter on an assist from Derrick White that gave the Spurs a 24-point cushion with 9:45 left. “It’s about time,” Gay said of Walker taking advantage with his superior athleticism. “He is an athlete and he can do it, he might as well start doing it…He is getting better at playing the way we know he can play.”
Families chosen for Walker’s visit all are participating in the federal Family Self-Sufficiency Program, which is designed to reduce dependence on welfare and rent subsidies. In order to join, the head of each family must sign a contract and agree to a training program that includes specific long-term goals. Among the services available are child care, transportation, education, job training, financial literacy and home ownership.
The Spurs would prefer to do a short-term extension if they grant one, given DeRozan’s age (30) and the fact that they have some good guards in the program (Derrick White, Dejounte Murray, Bryn Forbes and Lonnie Walker IV) who are likely to only keep expanding their roles. DeRozan undoubtedly wants a longer-term extension in exchange for sacrificing his free agency.
He understands the obstacles they’re facing every day in one of the nation’s poorest cities because he grew up on the same streets and saw the same things. “I’ve been through a lot,” Walker said. “I’ve dealt with a lot. My story is no different than anyone else’s. I’ve been through it all. I had my self-doubts growing up thinking I couldn’t make it out of this city. I’ve had many friends, some of whom passed away, some who were in the wrong place at the wrong time and some who didn’t have true guidance.
