That decision is likely on the mind of UConn point guard Kemba Walker, who is currently preparing his Huskies for what UConn fans are hoping is a long, successful run in the 2011 NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
Walker has played in 105 career collegiate games and is averaging 23.5 points and 4.3 assists per game this season, but at 5-foot-11 (although listed at 6-foot-1), the junior may struggle as an NBA guard. NBADraft.net projects the Bronx native going to the Nets at No. 26 overall in the upcoming draft, but the threat of an NBA lockout looms.
Making things more interesting is the fact that Walker was recently honored at UConn’s Senior Day. He plans to walk at commencement in May as he is on track to graduate in the summer.
Should Walker forgo his senior year and enter the 2011 NBA draft despite lockout rumors or should he stick around Storrs, Conn., for one final year?
