Kemba Walker Signing Amid A Career On The Rise (Photo)

Recently, Michigan based correspondent Lance Martinez captured this original photo of Hornets guard Kemba Walker signing, at the Palace of Auburn Hills, before a late season contest against the Pistons.

Walker was the NCAA Basketball Tournament Most Outstanding Player in 2011, amid leading UConn to a national title. He was later selected by the then Bobcats with the 9th pick in the 2011 draft.

This year, the New York City native has experienced his best season, scoring 20.9 points and dishing out 5.2 assists a game for the six seeded Hornets. Wednesday night, Walker and his Charlotte teammates try to even up their first round series against the Heat.
