    He has potential. Could be good. He also could never amount to anything.

    Still, hes cheap and he is athletic. Decent end of the bench guy on a Dantoni team, atleast for now. Could grow into a bigger role.

    The more and more interviews I see of him, the more I love the kid.

    He is a nice humble guy when interviewed.

    Then the game starts and he looks for blood.

    He can jump out of the gym but that's about it. He really has to work on his game. I would be surprised if he gets some playing time.

    From the sound of it this guy sounds like Gerald Green. The ability to jump over anyone, but still can't get any other parts of his game down straight. Just goes to show you that dunking doesn't mean everything.

    Bill Walker didn't get a lot of playing time in Boston, but he's getting an opportunity to play in New York.

    "He's definitely going to play, somebody we want to look at here on out. And he impressed the heck out of me," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said. "[He's] 22 years old and we just want to keep working with him, and hopefully he can be a good contributor ... going forward."

    Walker scored seven points in 13 minutes of action in his New York debut on Tuesday night.

    i want to see him get the ball on offense...this guy has a lot of athletiscism and offensive awarness for someone who never plays...

    We can use a back up SG to get some role player minutes behind T Mac...House is good but the dude is 6'1...let House be a PG

    Great post. I Couldn't agree more with the bolded. House is well suited as a shooting PG in our offense. Walker is SO athletic and should get the ball more when T-Mac is on the bench.

    dudes a very formidable bench player. very solid has his good games and he has his bad games, very foul prone he needs to stay on his feet more on defense and on offense he needs improve his jumpshot then he'll be a real strong weapon off the bench for us...i like him alot though

    Bill Walker has looked pretty good. Good bench player, insanely athletic and moreover he is aggressive. He gets to the basket...I SMH at when the announcers criticize him for being just a guy who goes up and tries to dunk...as if being a guy that gets to the basket and wants to take the ball to the whole is a bad thing...

    You need guys that get to the hole and go up with it as much as you need shooters. Will this guy ever be an all-star? Hell no, but echoing the sentiments here, he's the type of player you need to have on a successful squad.
