Kemba Walker loves the city of Charlotte.

The fans in Charlotte love Kemba Walker.

Last July, Walker moved on from Charlotte (after a below-max offer) and signed in Boston, but the love between the fans and Kemba was on full display Thursday night when Walker returned to Charlotte for the first time.

There was a fantastic video tribute.

That was followed by a standing ovation for the clearly emotional Walker.

Walker had 14 points and the Celtics were comfortably in charge of this game heading into the fourth quarter.
