End of the Shoulder-Shimmy: Antoine Walker retires from basketball

Former Boston Celtic Antoine Walker announced his retirement from basketball on Saturday night in the Idaho Stampede locker room following their win against the Bakersfield Jam, according to a team statement.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: There will be no heroic comeback for Antoine Walker. 

Last night, the former All-Star announced his retirement from basketball following the Idaho Stampede’s win in the D-League.

Walker, a generous and outgoing person, came out retirement and returned to basketball in hopes of earning enough money to pay creditors after declaring bankruptcy.

It never panned out.

Walker, out of shape and older, was a shade of his former self. The shoulder-shimmy was a thing of the past, along with the days of the round forward leading the break and firing away from three-point land for the Boston Celtics.
