An All-American at UConn, Kemba Walker led the Huskies to the 2011 NCAA Division I Basketball Championship, earning the tournament's Most Outstanding Player as an extra reward. He took that success right to the NBA, earning part-time starter status in his rookie season before becoming the full-time starter at the point starting in his second season. Since then, he has not only developed into one of the league's top ball handlers, he has also established himself as an emotional team leader. In his role as leader, he has the Hornets headed in the right direction, and a return to the playoffs isn't far behind. While he has been garnering much attention for his offensive exploits, which included a career-high 52-point effort on 1/18/16, his quick feet and even quicker hands have helped him become an outstanding defender. He finished fourth in the NBA in steals (160) in 2012-13. Walker has signed this Spalding replica indoor/outdoor basketball in black paint pen. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated's Five Step Process.
