Winning With Walker
Selected by the Celtics with the sixth overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft, Antoine Walker’s best season in the Green and White came during the 1997-98 season. While he had made the NBA All-Rookie team the year before, by May 1998 Walker was an NBA All-Star and averaged a double-double of 22 points and 10 rebounds per game. He paired with Paul Pierce as Boston’s team leaders during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
