If anyone watched the nets game and saw Bill Walker play garbage time at the end of the game has to be excited about the future of this kid. And if your not this quote from the globe will get you excited:
"Only the strong survive. This is a man's game. You want something, you have to go out there and take it. That's my mentality. [Defense] is the only way you're going to stay out there on the court. [Rivers] could have easily just let me sit there. That was a way of just saying I'm thankful to be out there. I'm going to keep on working, stay humble, and try to help out. I didn't know all the inbounding plays. But it was still fun."
Is that not a bad ass quote? I said before the draft that I hoped the Celtics take a chance on this kid and when they traded for him I was ecstatic. He is an intense kid, that if he can develop a consistent three point shot he will be like a more athletic James Posey. Danny Ainge has to get a little credit here, he has hit homeruns with pretty much every one of his second round draft picks (Gomes, G.Davis, Leon Powe, Bill Walker). I just hope the Celtics aren't just playing him to audition him for a trade.
