To begin with, the boy was raised in The Bronx, and was educated at Rice High School. He spent his college years at the University of Connecticut, in 2011 helping The Huskies to win the Big East Tournament – Walker scored 130 points in five games, a tournament record and more points than in any conference tournament over the previous 15 years, and consequently he was elected the MVP. In 2011, he led his team to the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship where he was named Most Outstanding Player. After his third year of college, when he averaged 23.5 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.9 steals and 4.5 assists per game, he decided to forego his final year and register for the NBA Draft.
Concerning his professional career, in the NBA Draft 2011 Walker was selected in the first round in ninth place by the Charlotte Hornets (then Bobcats). In his first season Walker came up with 12.1 points, 4.4 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game, and was invited to the NBA All-Star Weekend Rookie Challenge for his achievements. He also scored his first triple-double 20 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in a game against the Washington Wizards in 2012, only the third Bobcats player to make it in the history of the club. In his second year, he increased his statistics to 5.7 assists, 2.0 steals, 3.5 rebounds per game and 17.7 points per game, and participated for the second time in the rookie challenge. In his third year, he managed to make the second triple-double of his career when he scored 13 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in the victory against the Orlando Magic. With the Bobcats, he reached the NBA playoffs for the first time, considerably enhancing his potential net worth.
In 2014, Walker signed a new $48 million contract for four years with Hornets, and subsequently played his best season, recording 17.7 points, 6.1 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game. In the 2015-16 season, Walker set a new, personal single game career record with 52 points in the 124-119 victory over the Utah, setting a franchise record for the Hornets, previously held by Glen Rice since 1997. With the Hornets, he reached the playoffs and stood at 20.9 points per game his new career best. In the season 2016 – 2017, although Walker averaged 23.1 points per game with 44% field hits and 40% three pointers, the Hornets missed qualifying for the playoffs. However, Walker was selected for his first NBA All-Star Game, and honoured with the NBA Sportsmanship Award and was named an NBA All-Star.
