Hornets mash up Kemba Walker, Chuck Norris for brilliant All-Star campaign


Kemba Walker should be an All-Star this year. He is the core of the Charlotte offense, averaging 22.3 points a game, shooting 41.1 percent from three, has a true shooting percentage of 57, and has a PER of 22.1 — all of those a career best. The Hornet offense is 9.4 points per 100 possessions worse when he sits. The Hornets are 17-14 and look like a playoff team thanks to Walker. Plus he’s just fun to watch.

But in an Eastern Conference deep with good guards — Kyrie Irving, Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, John Wall, etc. — it never hurts to have a good ad campaign.

Enter “Walker, Charlotte Ranger” — putting Walker (and teammates Frank Kaminski and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist) into Chuck Norris’ legendarily bad “Walker, Texas Ranger” television show. Below are the videos the team has already shot to promote Walker for the All-Star Game in New Orleans. And yes, voting is open.
