Antoine Walker’s story is a cautionary tale.  He is a former NBA player who burst onto the scene as a sophomore at the University of Kentucky in the 1990′s where he helped the team win a National Championship.  In the 1996 NBA Draft, Walker was chosen as the sixth overall pick by the Boston Celtics.

He was a productive player, making the All-Rookie First Team and leading the team in scoring.  Walker became a standout for the Celtics teaming up with Paul Pierce.  Walker made multiple All-Star Teams and helped the Celtics make it to the Eastern Conference finals during the 2001-2002 season.

Walker was eventually traded to the Dallas Mavericks but later returned to the Celtisc for a brief time before being traded to the Miami Heat, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Memphis Grizzlies.  Walker last played for an NBA team in 2008.
