Bill Walker Scores 21 (In Loss)

New, comments

Doc Rivers has caught a lot of flack for not developing young players like Bill Walker and J.R. Giddens.  

Yeah.  This won't help.

Bill Walker scored 21 points in a blowout loss to the Cavs tonight.  I didn't watch the game, so I can't tell you how he looked.  To be fair, I'm sure the Knicks offense had something to do with it.  Clearly he is getting a chance to play on a team with nothing to play for and nothing to lose.  So the situation is vastly different from what he was in with the Celtics.

On the other hand, now that he's been given his shot, he has thus far stepped up to the challenge and I'm happy for him.  If what Danny had to say last week is true, then we've still got a chance to see him back in Boston this summer.
