My Mixtape: Kemba Walker

My Mixtape: Kemba Walker

UConn Husky from The Bronx Living the NBA Dream

In BallnRoll’s newest instalment of ‘My Mixtape’, we spoke to Charlotte Hornets’ All-Star, Kemba Walker.

The superstar point guard recently made his first ever All-Star Game this past season as he continues to establish himself as one of the most explosive players in the entire league. A former first round pick, Walker has already played six seasons in the NBA. In 2016-17, Walker had a career year, averaging 23.2-points, and 5.5-assists per game.

As to where he is from and who he really is? Let’s take a closer look at the journey of Kemba Walker!

BallnRoll: Who are you? What city do you call home? And what school colours do you rep?

Walker: The Bronx, New York, and navy blue and white for UConn.

BallnRoll: What is the name, age, city of the first team you ever made?

Walker: Kids boys and girls club, maybe 10-years old.

BallnRoll: Tell us the age and place of your first dunk because everyone remembers their first and how did you celebrate?

Walker: I really don’t know. My very first dunk was just outside where I’m from, I don’t remember the age though.

BallnRoll: When was the first time you dunked on someone’s head? Do you remember who the player was and was that the beginning of the new Kemba?

Walker: Yeah, McDonald All-American Game, on Jrue Holiday.

BallnRoll: Tell us about your first home college game and how special that was. Was something we all dream about?

Walker: It was actually an exhibition game. It was special, very special. I was just super excited, and just full of energy, super hyped. I got really tired that day, just because I got so hyped.

BallnRoll: Give us your first “welcome to the NBA” humbling moment. Schooled, cross-overed, dunked on. Who, where, and when?

Walker: Well, Deron Williams when he was with New Jersey Nets. He put 57 on us. That may have been the humbling experience for me. I mean, he was unbelievable. He scored in every single way possible. It was tough, but to watch it was pretty impressive.
