Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Celtics earned a hard-fought victory in a physical game against the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday afternoon, winning by the score of 112-111.

All-Star guard Kemba Walker scored a team-high 27 points in a game that had a playoff atmosphere in OKC.

Asked about that afterward, Walker took time out of his postgame Q&A session to absolutely troll his former Charlotte Hornets squad.

That’s a whole bunch of ouch right. Acquired from Charlotte in a sign-and-trade during the summer, Walker is not necessarily wrong.

The Hornets earned two playoff appearances in Walker’s eight seasons in Charlotte, losing in the first round each time.

As for this season, Charlotte is at 16-36 heading into this week’s action. Meanwhile, Walker’s Celtics are 37-15. Talk about going from a bad situation to one of the best situations in the Association.
