Antoine Walker at Celtics game gets all the jokes
Antoine Walker returned to Boston to take in a Celtics game and did so looking significantly different than he did during his playing days.
Walker spent the first seven seasons of his NBA career with the Celtics. On Wednesday, he was at TD Garden to watch the Celtics and Nuggets. For many on social media, the topic of discussion wasn’t Walker returning the the place he began his pro career. Instead, the focus was his appearance. Below is Walker sitting courtside.
