Nothing in life is perfect, so while Celtic's fans might be excited about the definite signing of Kemba Walker, his time in Boston will not be void of flaws.
It appears all that's left for the guard to become a member of the C's is on the dotted line, at which point he'll be the recipient of a pretty lucrative four-year max contract.
Now, Walker has turned 29 years old back in May, so by the time a four-year deal would have just turned 33. That, coupled with the fact that he's just 6-foot-1 , presents the only problem in the eyes of an NBA insider / analyst.
Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix explained the problem Friday on WEEI's "Mut & Callahan."
"The only problem with Kemba that I foresee, and it's a problem with a lot of small guards, guys at that size, they don all that well, "Mannix said, via WEEI.com. "So I think after a couple of years, when that contract is still enormous, Kemba you might be paying more for past performance."
Fair point, and it's worth noting Mannix made clear he still is a fan of the deal.
While the Celtics may find themselves in a pinch in a few years as a man, they have a young core that they have to think about Kyrie Irving's replacement.
