    Toine talking about being broke as a joke

    I loved Toine, how could you not? Jackin' up shots,  pulling down boards even though he didn't have any hops, pulling up on the break and dishing like a pg. Sure his act got old, but for a while he was a lot of fun.  Cook interview with him about his money troubles.

    Walker was a very frustrating player to watch. Yeah, jacking up threes at bad times, never going inside, even when he had a supposed mismatch, had bad hands, took tiny steps that limited his ability to fake or deceive an opponent, and "wiggled" only to be embarrassed on the next play. The clownish behavior was the forecast for the rest of his life (so far, and truly I hope he can change) - to be irresponsible and incapable of introspection, to avoid the pitfalls of (his) life. He has always seemed like a likable and generous person; it's too bad he donated so much money to casinos.

    He's a sad case; a waste of ability, and ultimately a sobering object lesson for all professional athletes, much like Iverson, except for the waste of ability.

    walker was an enigma wrapped up inside of a nincompoop.  he could have been much better if he spent time juking around on the box.  he was better at doing that than jacking long ones.  then there was the conditioning.  each year he seemed a little fatter coming back.  he ate himself out of the league by wearing out his knees bein' fat.  as time went on his rebounding faded to below acceptable but that still makes you dream of twon compared to jeff green's rebounding numbers..........  lol

    he did have a winning spirit most of the time but it was clouded by the other issues. 

    if pitino wasn't such an intense moron signing people like travis knight for 7 years 22 million and whatnots then there would have been a better team around pierce and twon and we would have gone deeper in the playoffs more often but i don't think they would have won it without a significant "other" piece and kenny anderson wasn't it.

    there's going to be a lot more sad cases following twon- there's already eric williams, and that guy who played for ATL, CLE and memphis who wound up shot a dozen times in the field after retiring early due to injury- the guy had earned 50+ million but was doing drug deals.  iverson is dead broke after making well over 100 million.

    the 1990s players are going to be a sad parade of broke people who made enough for a life of luxury beyond most of our wildest dreams............  and it's going to come on in the next 10 years pretty hard = my prediction.  kenny anderson also supposedly flat broke

    What a horrible time it was to be a Celtics fan....

    I don't feel that way at all now, I'm totally psyched about the re-build, love the collection of young talent Ainge has brought together, can't wait for Ainge to pull the trigger on at least 2 trades before opening night.......also, want to see both rookies play big minutes this season , north of 25 for Smart and north of 18 for James Young......

    He was amazing his sophomore year when he played all 5 positions for us, his game started to deteriorate after that because he was a 4 who insisted he was a 2.

    I can also tell you first hand that he was a lousy/ non-tipper... he deserves to be poor.

    The Toine was the biggist dink in the NBA...Kenyon Martin punked him out on a continual basis...It helped end Toine's Celtic's career...worst baby as a "pf" in NBA history...just a sad, sad case...they should call the first gambling location in MA "Antoine Walkerville"

    Nothing against Toine, but I can't feel sorry for someone that blew $100m in a few years for buying a few hundreds Ks watches and half a million dollars cars as stated in the article.  He can blame all the leeches that befriends him but I put the blame on one and only one person.  I wish him the best with the rest of his life.

      He was a horrible influence on the young Paul Pierce.  Damaged him, and if it wasn't for Doc and an older Paul Pierce that "got it" just in the nick of time, he wouldn't be in the hall of fame conversation.  Would have gone down with other "me first" and "bigger than the team" late 90's, early 2000's could have beens.

    Agreed but the league also bears some responsibility, the "illegal defense" rule was an abomination meant to raise scoring and individual players up for marketing purposes, this did more damage to USA basketball, the development of young players and "team" basketball than anything else.  

    In the time of its enforcement the average shooting percentage of the collective NBA dropped from 50% to 40% and USA basketball lost for the first time in International play and continued to lose, a generation of ball hog players was born.  The Spurs, like the best "teams" of the late 90's and early 2000's, would never have won a championship last season under these conditions.

    There is no "illegal offense" rule, taking away team defense, this was a terrible idea.

    You guys all take this stuff WAAAAY too seriously.

    Walker was a Celtic, he played hard as Hell, and yes, he is a total bonehead.

    Most of the people here are putting Toine on par with Manson.

    Toine got his face pushed in by that thug punk Kenyon Martin...he even ran away from him like a little girl on national TV and literally cried to the refs...disgusting behavior for a supposed "man".
