Its where I started my career, its where I had my most success, so Im happy to be back in the East. The 28-year-old Walker was a three-time All-Star with the Celtics before being moved to Dallas in a five-player deal shortly before the start of last season.

Extractions: "We just kept it simple basketball and things worked out well," said Walker afterwards. "This was a big win for us. Then, obviously, to come in and play well was big for me. I've got to continue to work, continue to learn everything." Now comes the hard part. Can Walker continue to blend into this revamped group of Boston Celtics? Will his presence retard the growth of rookie Al Jefferson, who has shown flashes of brilliance all season long? What does his impact mean to players like Ricky Davis and Tony Allen? Does the return of Antoine Walker pull Pierce out of his funk? But Ainge pulled the trigger anyway.

USBL InsideHoops NBA [ HOME Oct 21, 2003 After having been outplayed and overmatched by both Jermaine O'Neal and Kenyon Martin in the playoffs, Antoine Walker seemed bound for another NBA team. For those who still had their doubts, Walker's departure was all but assured when the Celtics hired Danny Ainge, an outspoken critic of the forward's poor shot selection and style of play, to be their new President of Basketball Operations. Within days of Ainge's hiring, rumors swirled throughout the league that Walker's days with "the Green" were numbered. So when it was announced Monday that the Celtics had sent him packing, the move wasn't all that surprising.
Bring Antoine Walker Back To Boston Petition To Wyc Grousbeck, CEO; Danny Ainge, Executive Director of basketball The Boston Celtics are a better team with antoine walker and antoine walker is a http://www.petitiononline.com/antoine/petition.html
Extractions: We, the undersigned, urge Wyc Grousbeck, Red Auerbach, Danny Ainge, Chris Wallace and the rest of the Boston Celtics organization to bring back Antoine Walker as a member and co-captain of the Boston Celtics via trade or off-season acquisition. We believe it is time for Danny Ainge to admit to his major error of previously trading Walker and underestimating his impact on and off the court to the organization and the city of Boston. It is obvious to the undersigned, that the combination of Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker is still an extremely potent one, and one that would pay dividends if surrounded by the quality role players that the Celtics already have. It is also clear to the undersigned, that Paul Pierce is not the leader that Walker once was and desperately needs Walker to shoulder some of the responsibility in order for the Celtics to once again become a successful team. Not only was Antoine Walker effective on the court, he was also an active contributor to the community while a member of the Boston Celtics and continues to be active while a member of other teams. Walker is a founder of "The 8 Foundation". The mission of the 8 Foundation is to provide positive life experiences and opportunities for inner-city youth while fostering stable and loving environments for young people living in Boston and Antoines hometown of Chicago. In addition, the Foundation supports single parents. Other charity foundations founded or assisted by Walker include The Real Deal Program, Camp 8, The AAU Program, and Walker's Wigglers. Walker is also a winner of the NBA's Community Assist Awards, which recognizes players for their charitable efforts on a monthly basis.
Extractions: Dateline: 04/10/97 This year's NBA rookie class really should be in class , not playing in the NBA. OK, OK, OK, what value does Shakespeare have to boys that make millions by Duncan on Othella? Absolutely nothing, but much ado should be made about the fact that the rookies of the past few seasons have been raw and aren't improving themselves or their teams very much. Nearly all of the top rookies this year Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Ray Allen, Kobe Bryant, Marcus Camby, Allen Iverson, Kerry Kittles, Stephon Marbury, and Antoine Walker all except for Kittles joined the NBA without completing their college eligibility. All of them, except Kittles, have played like it. For instance, something very typical of rookies is to commit a lot of turnovers. All of them have done so, except for Kittles. As a percentage of the possessions they used, these are the number of turnovers they committed: Player TO/Poss Abdur-Rahim Shareef Allen Ray Bryant Kobe Camby Marcus Iverson Allen Kittles Kerry Marbury Stephon Walker Antoine Even though it is typical for rookies to commit a lot of turnovers, these numbers are concerning because of the recent trend showing young players not improving. An easy example is last year's Rookie of the Year winner, Damon Stoudamire. He has not improved in a single area this season, unless you count his 1% improvement in free throw shooting. A second example is Jerry Stackhouse, who has also improved in no area but free throws by a whole 2%. How about Joe Smith, whose bread and butter in college was crashing the offensive boards, but whose second year in the NBA has shown an enormous drop in offensive rebounds. And then there is Chris Webber, whose dynamic inside game on a good Warriors team as a rookie has turned into all too many three pointers on a mediocre Bullets team. He actually had his best season as a rookie.
