Do you believe in Christmas miracles?! For the seventh time in NBA history, a player dropped a triple-double on Christmas. This year, it came from none other than Kemba Hudley Walker.
The sold out Madison Square Garden crowd chanted his name, now after coming back into the graces of Coach Thibodeau. Part of this is due to the COVID protocols with players being out, and Derrick Rose being sidelined for the next eight weeks after ankle surgery.
It's nice to have Kemba back, especially after a shaky start and being relegated to the bench. However, in his last four games, Kemba has scored 104 points, dropped 28 assists, and snagged 33 rebounds while shooting close to 40% on 40 minutes averaged. Not too shabby!
The resurgence tour is back. If we can get continued production from Kemba, and the remainder of the rotation gets healthy and starts scoring, we can get a glimpse of last seasons team and possibly a promising playoff run.
Merry Christmas and Let's Go Knicks!
