If "perennial All-Star" Antoine Walker didn't have bad luck, he'd have no luck at all.

Walker, 35, who was the source of many memorable quotes as a member of the Celtics, was forced to sell his 2006 NBA championship ring to pay off his creditors in his bankruptcy case, TMZ reports. The ring reportedly sold for $21,500.

Walker won the ring with the 2006 Miami Heat, but had to liquidate his property after racking up more than $12.7 million in debts.

It has been a long, hard fall for Walker, who made three All-Star teams in 12 NBA seasons but once referred to himself as a "perennial" All-Star. He also uttered one of the great lines in sports history when he was asked why, at 6-foot-8 and 224 pounds, he took so many 3-pointers.

"Because there are no 4s," he replied.

Never change, 'Toine. Except for the bankruptcy thing. Hopefully, that changes for the better for you.

Other than that, never change.
