As Boyz II Men once sang, it’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday. For Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Hornets, they may be singing the same tune in a short period of time.
On Friday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Hornets have made the 2016 Eastern Conference All-Star available on the trade block. It’s curious timing for the Hornets, who are four games behind the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference with 39 games to play.
Unfortunately for Walker these rumors dropped while the Hornets were in the middle of practice on Friday morning as the team prepared for their Saturday game against the Miami Heat. Walker spoke with media after practice, giving an emotional statement about how he grew up in Charlotte and his ties to the community.
