    The kid has a mean poker face.

    Can't tell if he happy, excited, unhappy, or anything by his expression.

    He's been through a lot so it's good to see him keeping his composure. Does he remind of another stone faced Walker, i.e. Erving Walker?

    He's probably a little disappointed, no big deal.

    If you focus on him on defense, he seems a little confused on the rotations. So while I like what he's bringing energy-wise, I understand why Billy is very slowly bringing him along.

    I agree that he looks confused at times which is to be expected. Going to be interesting to see him up against Stokes next game.

    I'll be interested to see how much Walker plays in this game. I'm guessing it won't be a lot unless someone like Young gets in early foul trouble.

    I just meant Erving never seemed to show his emotions while in the game so I was thinking Walker might have a similar composure/poker face. Other than that I agree they have nothing in common :D

    I don't look for him a lot but when Stokes goes out Billy may take Young out and put him in.

    Glad most of you seem to agree that he isn't going to see double digit minutes unless we have extreme first half foul trouble with Patric and Will or the game is a blowout. Neither have happened so far

    The NCAA has totally screwed him over...we know their is a learning curve with freshmen and you guys are so deep! Donovan and staff will work on his psyche and he will do some good things, but I hope he sues the NCAA.

    We will always be left to wonder how much difference it would have made if he could have started practicing with the team at the beginning of the year.

    Walker looks so thin when he is on the court, maybe that is because P a trick is so developed. either way his physical side is going to have to be developed before he goes to the pros or they will kill him. Put some meat on that kid Billy.

    I mentioned in a thread the other day that it was reported he has already gained 10 lbs since he joined the team. That's pretty good.

    That's his game face. He doesn't look like the kind of guy that cracks a smile when competing.
    Erving Walker was the same way. Patric looked like he was in some pain running towards the end
    (again).

    Random question...how does a poor kid like Walker afford to tattoo every inch of both his arms and parts of his neck? That's got to be thousands of dollars worth of body art.

    I don't see any color. It is when you add the color that it gets expensive. I had to pay to have my son's tattoo covered up to go in the Navy and a paw print was $85. But I get what you're saying. How could afford even that?
