PLAYERS: Antoine Walker
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
Antoine Walker, who started a promising career in Boston,  ended up out of the NBA and broke. His story was shared on an ESPN 30 for 30 episode.   He shares in a one on one interview with Stephen A Smith how things went wrong for him.   He blames bad real estate deals and a lavish lifestyle for the losses. Although much was made of his gambling debts, of the $110 million that he went through, he said that less than $1 million was lost in gambling. I remember the Pierce/Walker tandem in the early years on the Celtics and it was exciting at first. I wish Antoine the best in his life. Like Red often said, once a Celtic, always a Celtic.

Istanbul trip a passport to C's success?

In September of 2007, a newly reconstructed Boston Celtics team gathered for a road trip. The post office was still processing Kevin Garnett's change of address from Minneapolis.
