The NBA’s two biggest news breakers both had info on the Charlotte point guard this morning.

Shams Charania and Adrian Wojnarowski, two of the best NBA news breakers in the business, both Tweeted out very concerning news about Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker.

That Tweet was followed by this one just six minutes later.

P. U. Anybody but the Celtics or Lakers, man.

I do not like this news. Kemba Walker has been adamant about his desire to return to Charlotte, and the Hornets front office has been adamant about their desire to retain their franchise point guard, so I’m unsure where the disconnect could be. There are still a few days before free agency opens, so hopefully it gets sorted out before then.

If Walker does decide to leave, the Hornets will surely be a lottery team next season. But at least we’ll have Ricky Rubio to look forward to. The young guys will surely get a lot of burn, which would be fun, and we could look ahead to the lottery with dreams of future success and whimsy.
