Whoa! That’s what I said when I watched Corbin Thomas throw down 2 of his 40 points over a 7 footer at the Chicago Pro-Am and that’s also what I said when I saw Antoine Walker – looking a lot like his former teammate Shaq – react to the dunk.
If you have been wondering what Walker – now known more for blowing over $100 million than making 3 All-Star teams and winning a NBA championship – has been up to, when he’s not checking out Pro-Am games in his hometown of Chicago, he’s been giving financial advice to NBA rookies with Morgan Stanley Global Sports and Entertainment. He also recently penned a post on The Players’ Tribune called, “Letter To My Younger Self” about the mistakes he made during his bittersweet career.
Speaking of his younger self, I really miss Walker’s Shimmy days, when he was getting triple-doubles, attempting 10 3s a night and dunking on NBA players the way Corbin Thomas did at the Chi-League.
