Underdog Mentality (Kemba Walker)

Kemba Walker is a four-time NBA All-Star, member of the 2019 USA National Team, an NCAA champion, and the all-time leading scorer for the Charlotte Hornets. In 2019 he left Charlotte to join the Boston Celtics before ultimately returning to his roots in New York, where he's currently the starting point guard for the Knicks.

Kemba grew up in The Bronx. He was a rising star at his high school in Harlem, and made a name for himself nationally when he led the UConn Huskies to win the NCAA Championship in 2011. Later that year, Kemba was a top draft pick for what would become the worst team in NBA history (statistically speaking) - the Charlotte Bobcats.

On a recent trip back to Charlotte, before facing off against his old team, Kemba sat down with Ric to talk about the ups and downs of his career, a day in the life of an NBA superstar, and how he imagines life after basketball.
