Kemba shows love to the NY Knicks!
U-Conn phenom Kemba Walker, out of the Bronx, showed some interest in joining the Knicks next year. Kemba was at Yankee stadium to throw out the first pitch, yesterday, and commented afterward. Kemba loves playing in MSG: he played head-to-head against Bulls Derrick Rose when he was a senior at Rice high school, and played well in the Big East tournament (at MSG). The Knicks would have to trade up to the lottery picks to get Walker. Read his comments:
“I haven’t thought about it but it would definitely be special definitely to have MSG as my home,” Walker said on Wednesday after he threw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium
“It would be amazing. Especially because I’m from New York so if that happened, I’d be thrilled,” Walker said.
