“They need to sign Kemba Walker,” NBA legend, Charles Oakley told me in February.
“I hope they can grab somebody who is lucky like Walker in the NBA Draft. They probably have a 12th or 14th pick, they need a wing guy. They just got to be lucky. You just gotta be in it. Hopefully, you just get a pick.”
Upon telling Kemba Walker the praise that Oakley had for him, he was beyond elated. “He said that,” Walker asked me with a smile.
“That’s my dude, Oak always has my back.”
A Bronx, New York native, many have wondered if Walker wants to play with the Charlotte Hornets past this season. Some have speculated that the Bronx, New York native wants to play for the New York Knicks.
With the Los Angeles Lakers nabbing Anthony Davis via trade with the New Orleans Pelicans, what’s next?
As far as Walker is concerned, it is not where you’re from, it is where you’re at currently.
“I’ve only been on one team,” Walker told me last summer.
“I don’t know. I’ve been on one team in seven years, going on eight years. So when it’s my time, I’ll make a decision.”
If Walker is not a Los Angeles Laker, there are options.
