‘Antoine is a sweet person’
He really is.
But he doesn’t have a clue about managing money. … I’ve always had a soft spot for Antoine Walker, even though he’s one of the most annoying and frustrating athletes I’ve ever watched. He’s genuinely nice and generous – and loved being with the Celtics. Now he’s broke. … I never knew Antoine got the news he was traded by the Celts while he was playing blackjack at Mohegan Sun. I used to be a harsh critic of Trader Danny. But he's proven he knows when to hold and fold 'em.Update

on his old teammate's woes:
We spent a lot of time together. I always went out to Chicago and worked out with him, and things like that. But people grow up, and I can’t tell you why things happen, or what’s going on in his head. But as far as not being able to play the game of basketball, that hurts, because you know you have something left in the tank, but you’re not on a roster.
