Player Bio

Kemba Hudley Walker is the son of Paul and Andrea Walker. The point guard has three siblings: Sharifa Nesbitt, Akil Nesbitt and Keya Edwards. Walker grew up in the Bronx borough of New York. During his days at Rice High School, he was named to the 2007-08 McDonald's All American team after his senior season. While at the University of Connecticut, Walker majored in sociology. During the summer of 2010, Walker was one of 10 collegiate athletes named to the USA Select Team that trained with the U.S. National Team from August 10 to 13 in preparation for the 2010 FIBA World Championships. Every summer, Kemba returns to his hometown Bronx to host a free basketball camp for the area's youth. In 2016-17 and then again in 2017-18, Walker was awarded the NBA Sportsmanship Award, which is given to a player who most "exemplifies the ideals of sportsmanship on the court with ethical behavior, fair play and integrity."
