We don't talk strictly football here at All Things Covered. We live up to our name! In honor of the NBA's All-Star weekend, Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden welcome 3-time All-Star himself, Antoine Walker, to the show. The guys discuss All-Star memories (2:30) which basically turn into memories of Michael Jordan. Antoine helped organize some pickup games for MJ which eventually led to gambling with MJ... And as you can imagine, those are some crazy stories. Listen for the wildest game of spades you've ever heard (8:00). 'Toine also covers the 1996 NBA Draft class and its place in league history as well as thoughts on Kobe Bryant (14:15). Antoine is closely linked with Paul Pierce for their days as the Celtics star duo (22:15). Pierce is presumably set to join the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame as we discover the "Truth's" competitive edge AND more on his wheelchair bathroom break during the 2008 NBA Finals. Walker wasn't part of that team and that's largely due to Danny Ainge. Why did they have a poor relationship? Antoine discusses the current version of the Celtics and whether they should have traded for James Harden when they had the chance (31:45). After winning a college title in 1996, he was able to win a pro title a decade later with the Heat. There was some legendary basketball and legendary partying that took place during that season to say the least (36:00). And of course we have to ask about Antoine's patented Shimmy (41:45) Superlatives wrap things up as we uncover the Top 5 Chicago players of all time (44:00)!
