09:30 AM ET 03.06 | After two months, Antoine Walker is still toiling in the NBDL, and with his subpar performance in January's D-League Showcase, his shot to return to the NBA disappeared. Walker is averaging 16.1 points and 5.8 rebounds, while shooting 44 percent, and is eligible to sign with any NBA team. But he may have to improve his stock in summer league -- if there is one, barring a lockout -- and then perhaps join a training camp next year.

He's probably had to pawn it by now so the bookie wouldn't break his kneecaps. It amazes me how athletes with millions still gamble. Gambling is supposed to be for average joe's like us to give us hope of winning a fraction of the kind of money that these guys make.

Another spoilt rich sportsman. There are PLENTY of younger guys in NBDL that can be had for a league minimum. Why waste it on this loser?

June 20th 2006 NBA Finals Game 6..A Walker 14pts 11 rebounds!!! Pay your to respects to Walker he A Mourning was the true MVPs of that game playing defense and rebounding!! Of course he deserves and will get a chance!

The Celtics should have got him then they coulod have kept Perkins. Now it will be even easier for the Lakers but at least Doc will not have an excuse

I think gambling appeals to any risk-taker...whether he be an Average Joe or a Diamond Jim.

of corse he wants back in the nba -- min pay about $400,000 per year - he has never done anything else to earn money - he has no money - and he has no skill to do anything else - OR - we could train him for a new job - and the taxpayer will pay for the training--
as they say what a country

The only idiot here is you. Unlike other spoiled NBA stars of the past Walker is willing to work to earn another chance.

Some of you people would rather praise idiots like Pierce that take for granted the stuff they have and don't think twice about throwing gang signals at kids when they are out playing them but someone trying to fix what he messed up in all aspects of his life you make idiotic comments such as this.

You must be a New Yorker or a bandwagon member of the Boston Celtics "nation" which is a joke in itself.
