Tribute to the Antoine Walker Shimmy & the original NBA Meme

Published on August 12th, 2015 by Astramskas, David | 1,511 views

Long before memes were popular. Even before the social networks people use memes on were popular. There was Antoine Walker, his Shimmy celebration and the Walker Walk images floating around message boards, chat rooms and then Myspace pages.

But before we get a good laugh at the original NBA meme, I do want to give a shout out to the NBA Champion who is more known now for going broke than for making a lot of fantasy owners money when he was a 3 x All-star flirting with a triple double on a nightly basis and deserving to be in this photo.

Here’s a few games from his 2001/02 All-Star season that made me happy I had him on my fantasy team.

  • vs Knicks: 42pts, 9rebs, 9asts, 3stls
  • vs Nugs: 30pts, 12rebs, 14asts
  • vs Wizards: 31pts, 10rebs, 9asts
  • vs Bucks: 29pts, 17rebs, 5asts
  • vs Griz: 38pts, 7rebs, 6asts, 4stls
  • vs Lakers: 30pts, 14rebs, 10asts

But during that season, and a few others, he would kill you in the fg% department as he averaged 8 3-point attempts a game and even averaged 11.2 shots from downtown during a 9 game stretch that season which included a 6 for 17 game.

Now that we got all that out of the way, let’s revisit or be introduced to the Walker walk.
