CHARLOTTE – Hornets point guard Kemba Walker will serve as the honorary Keep Pounding drummer before Sunday's game against the Cardinals at Bank of America Stadium.
"I'm really excited to be the Keep Pounding drummer this weekend," Walker said. "It's an honor to represent my teammates and the Hornets organization at such a big game and support our crosstown squad. It's a big weekend for Charlotte sports and I'm thrilled to be a part of it."
Last year, Walker posted career-highs in points per game (20.9), field goal percentage (.427), three-pointers (182) and free throws (371) to lead Charlotte to the playoffs.
Walker and the Hornets host the Celtics in their home opener on Saturday.
