WATCH: Kemba Walker shows off ridiculous handles

While Kyrie Irving might draw all the attention for having the best dribbling skills in the NBA, we’d be remiss to leave Kemba Walker out of this discussion. Irving dribbled his way out of trouble on Wednesday night when it looked like he would surely be trapped in the corner. He shortened his dribble a bit to confuse a defender, then juked another one. He then calmly found Roy...

Kemba Walker does best Nick Young impression with premature celebration

While it’s technically not one of the fundamentals of basketball, one thing a player must know is to make sure your shot goes in before doing anything else. For Charlotte Hornets player Kemba Walker, he assumed his shot went in and as the old saying goes, made an ass out of you and me. During Thursday’s game against the Miami Heat, Walker threw up a 3-point attempt. While the...

Kemba Walker Danced After Shooting a 3-Pointer. The Ball Never Went In.

One of the most badass moves in basketball is also one of the riskiest. It takes an unwavering confidence in your shot to turn your back to the basket while the ball is still floating in the air. You're so sure it's going in that you feign nonchalance and don't bother to observe the ball's flight to the hoop. Such confidence has led to some iconic moments, the most famous of which...

WATCH: Kemba Walker prematurely celebrates shot he misses

Congratulations to Kemba Walker for pulling a Nick Young. The Charlotte Hornets guard produced a viral but forgettable moment on Thursday when he began celebrating a shot against the Miami Heat that didn’t go into the basket: Oh Kemba Walker will be seeing this on highlights for all the wrong reasons for a long time to come. — Will Manso (@WillManso...

What's next? Can the Hornets find help for Kemba Walker?

The Charlotte Hornets made the playoffs last year. They played seven hotly contested but aesthetically unappealing games against the Miami Heat before ultimately succumbing to Dwyane Wade just being the best player in the series. I bring that up because I have no idea how this team that included Al Jefferson last year flirted with having homecourt advantage in the first round until...

Kemba Walker has knee surgery

Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker had a breakout 2015-16 season for the team, eventually leading Charlotte to 48 wins and a surprise spot in the playoffs. All said, the former top 10 pick put up career highs in points per game (20.9) and three-point percentage (.371) en route to becoming a borderline All-Star performer.

Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker may have had an off night in Friday’s game against the New York Knicks, going 4-for-15 from the field and finishing with 11 points and four assists. But he made the biggest shot of the game and came through when it counted most with a walk-off winner.
