Dwyane Wade reacted to the news that Antoine Walker was forced to sell off the championship ring they won together back in 2006. Wade lamented the whole thing, but understood that Walker had little other choice in the matter. From Fox Sports: “I think it's worth more than that, personally,' Wade said. ‘I know how hard we worked for that ring and how much it means to all of us. It's very unfortunate,' said Wade, who read the news Monday about the sale.
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
