As you may have read on Ball Don’t Lie (or one of various other quality online basketball publications), Antoine Walker is playing in Puerto Rico, presumably in an attempt to regain his lost riches. Well all appears to be going well so far for Employee #8, as his first two games with the Guaynabo Mets have resulted in quality efforts and wins.
In his first game, playing alongside Marcus Fizer (former Chicago Bull/Milwaukee Buck) he led the team to an 81-80 win with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Here is video footage of highlights from the game against Santurce (former team of Carlos Arroyo and JJ Barea).
His second game was played on Sunday, where he scored 13 points (4/12 FG) to go along with 11 rebounds. Remarkably, he has only shot four three-pointers so far in Puerto Rico. What’s happening ‘Toine? Did they finally give you a four point shot?
Australian NBL fans will be glad to know that former Perth Wildcat and West Sydney Razorback, Darnell Hinson (Mike Tyson’s body double) is alive and well and played in that game against Walker.
Tomorrow Walker’s Mets will take on Leones De Ponce, home of former NBAer, DeMarr Johnson who is averaging 18.0ppg in three games so far this season after coming from the Jiangsu Nangang Dragons Nanjing in China where he finished in January.
