‘Toine Brings His Shimmy to Puerto Rico

I’m trusting the newly-launched PBT with the translation of the story here: “Apparently Antoine Walker needs the cash pretty badly — after not landing an NBA gig he has taken a physical and signed to play with Guaynabo in Puerto Rico. Former Bull (and Buck and Hornet) Marcus Fizer will join him. Walker has been out of the game for more than a year (remember his season in Minnesota in 2008? Don’t worry, nobody does).  Still he hoped to find an NBA gig but not even the Wizards have been willing to pick him up.”

    Wow, he couldn’t even get a spot in Europe? Hard times for Toine.

  • zabba

    He’s basically doing it for the cash. Just want to remind everyone that he got like a $120 mil contract sometime in the late ’90s by the Celtics. Just saying.

    He passed a physical???….Like he passed a physical, like he walked by it????……..Or like they asked the players if they wanted to take a physical and when it was Toine’s turn he said “Pass, no thank you” ??? Or did he actually take a physical and was cleared????

    ya’ll joke but he was a great talent in his younger days – not many guys at 6-9 could do what he did with the ball – here’s hoping it regains his footing financially

    sometimes, you gotta be selfish with your money, you cant help everybody. you cant take care of dozens of people for decades. the money runs out faster than you might think. sad story. joe for the win.

    DJ B BLAZIN: perhaps we shouldn’t be calling others idiots if we don’t know where the hell Puerto Rico is?

  • D’Angelo

    I’m sure, that he would have gotten a roster spot in europe. Maybe the contract offer from puerto rico was the highest.

  • ENDS

    passed and Antione Walker should not go together in a sentance. Plus I dont know if putting Walker in an island surranded by all the Arroz con pollo he can eat is a good thing

  • http://www.behindtheb.blogspot.coom Sam Raphael Chadwick

    niQ thanks didnt know it was that bad couldnt he just get like a job? like a presenter or like something other than a player.

  • slawson

    that shimmy is going to produce a lot of “flab flap” these days.
