No Shimy-Shakes in Memphis This Season

“I would have liked the opportunity to play but I understand the state that they’re in. They want to play the young guys,” [Antoine] Walker said. “I still feel like I’ve got a lot of basketball left in me and I can contribute to a team in the NBA. It’s unfortunate that it’s not working out here. But you have to respect the decision. This team has some good young talent.”

    The mean age of the Grizzlies just plummeted. He was far and away the oldest one on the team.

  • blackjack

    Reunite ‘Toine and Pierce!!!

  • http://slamonline.com Yknot

    Go to Charlotte since May can’t get in shape.


    Its too badd there is no room in Boston for him. He and PP held that place down for a while


    Lakers have room don’t they. He can play point as well. He will kind of be a broken Odom.

    That’s actually very classy of him. I hate when players or coaches go on meaningless and bitter rants on their way out. The Griz are not competing for anything right now and want to see what they have with Gay, Mayo, Conley and Gasol. Understandable.

    The OCD part of me wants to point out that it’s “shimmy,” not “shimy.” haha

    Does anyone remember when Toine thought he realisticly deserved a Slam Cover? How time flys.


    He did deserve a slam cover, he was raw in his day and never saw a three he did not like, his days at UK alone deserved a slam cover

  • K.I.N.G.

    yes i agree, Boston!!!!

  • Bruno

    Toine was one of the biggest fakes EVER!
    never… NEVER played ball! but for YEARS and YEARS, was advertised as a “future all-star”.
    him an PP was a fraud as a duo! they sucked big time.. now both have rings. life IS unfair.
    the only difference is that PP stayed in Boston, received KEVIN GARNETT and RAY ALLEN, and after another bad call, was named finals mvp and is considered by ignorants among NBA Top10 players.
    of course he is better than Toine, no arguing, but still a fraud!

  • The Crook

    Green Hater-ade must be on sale this whole month…#8 never sucked but he wa snever as good as he thought he was either. PDouble and #8 did hold it down here in boston for a bit but the duo wasn’t good enough to advance to the finals.

    #8 is still better than some of these cats out there getting a check and he definately has more guts than most. Peace

  • http://slamonline.com Yknot

    They were damn sure a better combo than Dana Barros and Dino Radja!!! (no disrespect Dana)

  • The Crook

    DB was/is a class act. Remember he signed with us after his All Star year in Philly. He sacrificed perhaps another all star berth to sign with his “underachieving” hometown team inorder to help fill seats. He is still a fixture with the team.

  • http://www.basketballjerseyworld.com NBA-JERSEY-KING

    he could be a back up in boston…..

  • Bruno

    great memory.
    if they were really better than Dino and Dana… thats just cause paul pierce is a little bit more athletic than Dino Radja…

  • Quail

    theres no way the celtics would have enuff cap room for him. and he still wouldnt play over Leon Powe. i dont care where the hell he goes. as long as its not detroit.

  • Bruno

    i wonder if you guys in Boston could afford to have him back.
    do you have enough McDonalds in town for Toine AND Big Baby????

  • Jose

    So are we gonna try to make antoine an allstar this year or wat?

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    Yeah we should….
    I want to see him sigh on with a contender…Does Cleveland want/need him?

  • KA

    the nba should adopt a 4pt shot once toine retires. just to piss him off.

  • Young Chris MP3

    I’d like to see him back in green. He won’t be a slouch on the boards with KG over his shoulder and dude used to be a beast on the offensive glass (when he wouldn’t be hiding behind the three point line).

  • chintao

    Antoine has been irrelevant for a few years now. Relevance is not like the tides, with ebbs and flows. Relevance is like a cake at Eddy Curry’s house. It doesn’t stick around long; and, when it goes, it’s gone forever.

    easy joke… but still a good one!
