Kemba Walker joined the New York Knicks this offseason after two years with the Boston Celtics. The 31-yer-old star point guard teamed up with former NBA MVP Derrick Rose, who plays the same position.
Despite competing for the same role on the team with Rose, Walker is not concerned with whether he is the starting point guard or not. According to the four-time NBA All-Star, he wants to learn from D-Rose, who was one of the biggest reasons for him to join the Knicks.
“For me, I’ve always been a huge D Rose fan regardless if I’m starting or not starting. Whatever, like it, doesn’t even matter. I just want to win. And to have a guy like him — a former MVP, a guy who’s been through it all — to be on the same team with him is really special for me,” Walker said.
“D Rose is one of the biggest reasons why I came here, and I wanted to be around him. I wanted to get a chance to see how he prepares himself every day. You know, just really to the chance to pick his brain as best as I can.”
