Making quite the impact on the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, Rookie Kemba Walker doubled his successes on an off the court.
Spending two days in Orlando undergoing media interviews, signing autographs, practices, meetings, community service with the NBA Cares Program, and playing in the Challenge game, Walker soaked up his opportunities.
Despite a 146-133 to Team Shaq, Walker was able to secure a double-double, and what looks like a shoe in for the Challenge game in 2013. He score 10 points and dished out a game high 10 assists. He also added five rebounds and two steals.
Before the All-star Break, the Bobcats found themselves next to last in the South East division with a 4-28 record. With a rough start to the first half of the season, the Bobcats look forward to the break to refuel and refine their skills for the second half of the year.
The Bobcats return to action Wednesday February 29th at 7:30pm against the Detroit Pistons inside the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit Michigan.
