08:35 AM ET 08.24 | The 2008-09 season will likely be filed under the chapter "annus horribilis" when Antoine Walker pens his memoirs. There also was a much less-publicized setback for the former Celtic in March, when an arbitrator ruled that he owed his former agent, Mark Bartelstein, more than $450,000 in unpaid fees. Bartelstein sought the money after Walker came up short on paying his 4 percent agent commission, apparently upset at Bartelstein for not being able to get him a new, lucrative deal. Bartelstein filed a grievance to get his money and arbitrator George Nicolau ruled in the agent's favor March 19. Nicolau ordered Walker to make the back payments to Bartelstein within 10 days, but it is unclear whether that has happened.
