Kemba Walker ‘Angry’ About NBA Lockout

by September 23, 2011

Get in line, Kemba Walker. Everyone‘s angry about the NBA lockout. The Washington Times has details of Kemba’s beef: “As Walker took the court in the summer league Clash of the Superstars with his white-shirted teammates Saturday, Goodman League commissioner Miles Rawls continued his usual comedian-style running commentary as the game’s announced. ‘Kemba Walker,’ Rawls called out as Walker connected on a jumper. ‘He has yet to get a paycheck. He’s mad as hell.’ The crowd laughed. A few players laughed, including Walker. It was a rueful laugh, one that signified irony rather than humor. What Rawls did not know what that barely an hour earlier, Walker was asked to sum up his feelings about the lockout in one word. ‘Angry,’ Walker said. ‘I’m angry because I can’t do anything. I can’t talk to my team, I can’t talk to my coaching staff and start learning things from them, I can’t get involved with the team at all. It pretty much [stinks]. ‘I would like to get acclimated to the NBA game. I know there’s a big difference from college to the NBA, so not getting a chance to learn, it’s pretty hard.’ … ‘I’ve been thinking about it [playing overseas] lately. I don’t really want to because I don’t know if I want to go so far away,’ Walker said. ‘But if it’s something that has to be done, it could be possible, depending how long we go into this lockout. I just want to play basketball.'”
