Ladies and gentlemen, it is official former Charlotte Hornets All-Star point guard Kemba Walker is a Boston Celtic. The Celtics, of course, are coming off of a tumultuous season in which the team seemingly imploded from within. The Celtics this offseason were the laughing stock of the NBA for a short period of time.

The Boston Celtics make the best out of a tough situation

The Celtics just two summers ago traded for All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving. The plan was to pair Kyrie with Gordon Hayward. Gordon Hayward was the Boston Celtics major free agent signing two summers ago. Fast Forward to this summer and Kyrie Irving is headed to the Brooklyn Nets. Al Horford a pillar of the Boston Celtics team is signing with their rivals the Philadelphia 76ers. The Celtics are also slated to lose the likes of Terry Rozier and potentially Marcus Morris. What happened to the Celtics? People were wondering all season long. Was Kyrie Irving to blame for the demise of a team in which many people predicted would make an NBA Finals appearance. Was the Celtics management to blame? Nonetheless, the team grossly underperformed last season and had and ungracious second-round exit from the playoffs.

A tale of two point guards

Kemba Walker, on the other hand, was the sole star of the Charlotte Hornets. The Hornets did not make the playoffs last year. Kemba Walker nonetheless had an outstanding year as an individual performer. Michael Jordan and the Charlotte Hornets this offseason decided that they were not going to pay Kemba Walker and enter the luxury tax.

Kyrie Irving is leaving Boston and Kemba Walker just entered. How do you compare and contrast both point guards? Statistically, their numbers are similar in the last 300 games played. The real crux of the conversation about both players is their presence in the locker room and off of the court. It has been reported that Kyrie Irving for a multitude of reasons did not enjoy his time spent in Boston both on and off of the basketball court. Kemba Walker other hand seems delighted to be the newest member of the Boston Celtics.
