Happy Antoine Walker Appreciation Day!

Don't question it. Just take a little time out of your day and appreciate Antoine Walker. Before the weight become such an issue, before he resorted to doing nothing more than standing at the 3 point line and launching everything he could get his hands on, before we knew about the gambling and got kind of worried about Employee Number 8, he was doing things few power forwards had ever done before.

To Antoine Walker: Thank you.

To Everyone else: Happy Antoine Walker appreciation day.

Potluck style!

And of course, we end with a youtube highlight package. Thanks for joining in, see you next year.

Jay Bilas compared Walker to Magic Johnson on draft night. Not kidding. Of course, Bilas is a total douche so his opinion is shit but still...

I think you need to dedicate a post to Bilas. It would be great therapy for you and entertainment to the rest of us.
