    ESPN's OTL on Antione Walker

    Did anyone see the OTL piece on Antione Walker? I can't imagine having over $110MM in contract as an NBA all-star and now be playing ball in Puerto Rico for $150K a season to get yourself out of debt. Crazy!

    So much for learning anything while he was at UK preparing for the life of a baller...

    This happens a lot more than I think a lot of people realize. A lot of the players in the NBA didn't come from very much money when they were kids, and get these huge contracts and don't know how to manage all that money.

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    The slum-lord stuff in Chicago is what floored me about the piece. He just had no clue what he was getting into. The MJ getting him into high stakes gambling part was crazy as well...no way he had MJ-type money.

    St. Pitino! All about the basketball factory. At least Pitino fired him at Boston.

    I wonder if his "Shake" move after he makes a three has taken on a bit of a Latino influence while in Puerto Rico, maybe more of a salsa dance type look.

    In the clip it shows him make the move after he completed a drive to the hoop, it looked like he was moving in slow motion.
