Despite Kemba Walter’s outputs in Europe at a manageable 3.5 points, being a far cry from his NBA outputs of 19.3 points per game, Walter, still claims to be enjoying his basketball in Europe with AS Monaco.

Kemba Walker’s NBA career

Kemba Walter, during his NBA days, played for four renowned NBA teams, for a total of 12 amazing years in the league, of which he also garnered notable achievements. Walter joined the Charlotte Bobcats (now the Charlotte Hornets) in the 2011 NBA draft, but didn’t experience the best of his rookie year. The team had experienced poor results on the court, which they finished with a 7-59 record. Walter, after improvements during his first five years, broke out in the 2016-2017 season, in which he achieved his first all-star team selection. Walter, again earned his first and only All-NBA team selection in the 2018-2019 season, after being the brightest player in the team.

Afterward, Walter requested a trade to join the Boston Celtics in 2019, for a sign-and-trade deal, after enduring years of frustration. Commendably, Walter made it to the Eastern Conference finals with the Celtics. Unfortunately, Walter, re-injured his left knee and only returned halfway through the 2020-2021 campaign, which prevented him from making it to the All-Star level performance, and eventually endured a poor season with the Celtics. Furthermore, KembaWalter, in the 2021 off-season, was traded to the OKC Thunder but later got waived, he went on to join the New York Knicks for the 2021-2022 season, before having his last NBA stint with the Dallas Mavericks in 2022-2023.

Nevertheless, Walter’s outputs in the NBA, were quite impressive, as he averaged 19.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 5.3 assists while shooting at 41.8% from the field in 33.1 minutes per outing. Kemba Walter also garnered notable achievements like 4-time NBA All-Star (2017-2020), All-NBA Third Team (2019), 2-time NBA Sportsmanship Award (2017 and 2018), and other applaudable awards and accolades. Walter’s claim of experiencing a good time in Europe, might seem surprising to many, but the former NBA player, may still have the energy to replicate his past NBA outputs with the AS Monaco.
