CHARLOTTE, N.C.- Kemba Walker says he holds no ill feelings toward Michael Jordan, even though the Hornets owner and six-time NBA champion decided not to keep him in Charlotte by paying him a $221 million supermax contract.
During Kemba's return to the Spectrum Center on Thursday night, the Hornets showed a highlight video of him during pre-game introductions, which brought tears to his eyes.
After that, the crowd gave Walker a loud, one-minute standing ovation.
"It was amazing," Walker said after the game. "Just a great feeling to know that they still have love for me even though I left. But you know, to be back and to get the reception I got was really cool."
Walker scored 14 points and had six assists as the Celtics beat the Hornets for their sixth straight win.
