Did you see the ESPN interview/article on him? It seemed like he was really depending on this squad to pay off his debt. The news story made me realize that professional basketball exists in Puerto Rico.

Wow nevermind, I looked at that league and it looks like the utlimate NBA reject league. Luke Jackson, Maurice Taylor, Bonzi Wells, etc....and....
ROBERT "TRACTOR" TRAYLOR
jd...I like to think of the PRL as the "place that dinosaurs go to die"...kinda sad though I kinda thought Walker still had something...but waived there...I guess he really is finished...:facepalm:

I am a bit confused as to why he was let go. The stats said he had something like 12 ppg and 8 rpg...that doesn't sound like a bad stat line. Maybe it wasn't in line with what he was getting paid?
I got the feeling his pay was the reason...

Yall really should read the ESPN interview/article. It really explains all of this going on right now.
SWedd...can you link it?
This was the other link I found and it seemed that it was an expectation vs. money but I'l like to read the ESPN just can't find it...

I'm in class right now so all I have is my phone but when I get back to my dorm I'll be glad to find the link. It really does explain a lot of what's going on in his life currently.
Sneak peak, he made good friends with MJ and ended up gambling away all of the money that he wasn't giving to his mooching friends. Go figure :facepalm:
EDIT: just googled it and got the link (make sure you click to read the full feature!!): http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/celtics/post/_/id/4672767/million-dollar-mistakes
Thanks SWedd...there was a link (at the bottom of the short article) to the full article...I know he is in a world of financial hurt...and the release from his Puerto Rican team (from all I can find) was just them feeling it was his pay vs. there expectations...I hope he works his way out of this mess...:facepalm:

I really feel sorry for him, but only to an extent. It seems like he was really depending on this opportunity to work his way out of a giant hole, and I wish it worked out. His monetary strategies were very poor though, particularly the bit with the apartments in Chicago.
It's sad to see how his game fell off as well. I figure if Rasheed could make it this long being a bum, he could too.
