NBC- Just a week after winning a national championship, UConn's Kemba Walker will announce he is leaving Storrs for the NBA. A media advisory from UConn said the school has scheduled a news conference for 3 p.m. Tuesday. There are no details in the advisory, but Mike Anthony of the Hartford Courant reports sources confirm Walker will announce his intentions to enter the NBA Draft. In what Coach Jim Calhoun called the best season for a Husky ever, Walker led his team on an 11-game win streak, including five wins in five nights to claim the Big East Tournament Championship. The junior shooting guard then carried the Huskies to a national championship April 4. Walker's announcement isn't a surprise. After the Huskies' win over Butler in the NCAA Finals, he spoke as if he had already made up his mind. "I'm going to miss being around these guys," Walker said just minutes after the championship game.
Hold the fucking phones. You mean to tell me a 20 year old that single handedly brought back the NCAA title to his school with his team of freshmen and sophomores is going to take advantage and go make millions playing basketball for money? The 2nd most famous college basketball player (1st has to be Jimmer) in the world is going to leave college to make shit tons of money playing a game for a living? Shocking. If someone offered me 10% of what he is going to make to drop out of college now I would in a heart beat. 100k a year to do pretty much anything and I'd drop out now. He is like 2 weeks older than me and is going to play in the NBA and I am having trouble finding internships. Kemba is going to make millions and I am having problems finding people who will let me work for them, for free. I'm jealous of the work status of black people in the south before the Lincoln freed 'em.
