Yo, can Antoine Walker please catch a break? About a week ago, he was just some poor sap forced to play in the NBA's D-League because he couldn't seem to get his life or his basketball career back on track. But life actually seemed to be going relatively good! Since then, he's been forced to sell his 2006 NBA championship ring to pay off creditors and, as of today, waived by the NBDL's Idaho Stampede. According to Marc. J Spears of Yahoo! Sports, it was for "personal reasons." Whatever that means.
D-League Idaho Stampede waives Antoine Walker for personal reasons. D-League Rio Grande also waives Derrick Caracter.â€” Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) March 23, 2012
We feel for you, 'Toine. We really do. Which is why we'll save the jokes about playing at the YMCA for next week. For now, we honestly just hope this is the last piece of bad news we get about you for awhile.
