In the latest episode of the Open Floor Podcast, SI.com’s Lee Jenkins welcomes Hornets guard Kemba Walker to the show to discuss Charlotte’s second–half success, his NCAA tournament memories and what it means to be a New York point guard. Jenkins and Walker begin the program by examining the Hornets’ startling success of late. Charlotte has won 15 of its last 18 games, largely thanks to Walker. The two examine Charlotte’s newfound flow on offense and what changes have led the team to be competing in the upper tier of the Eastern Conference. Later, Walker takes a stroll down memory lane and discusses some of his favorites plays and games from UConn’s 2011 national championship. Walker also touches on what it means to be a point guard from New York City and how he’s changed his game since entering the NBA.
