(WTNH)–Kemba Walker is really good at basketball. He’s also, apparently, really good at being a good sport.
The UConn legend and Charlotte Hornets All-Star won the NBA’s Sportsmanship award last night, at the first-ever live awards show hosted by the league. The award is voted on by players and has been around since the 1995-96 season. Former UConn star Ray Allen won it in 2003.
Kemba averaged 23.2 points, 5.5 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game last season, and was named an All-Star for the first time ever.
