35-year-old former NBA player Antoine Walker made millions of dollars during his NBA career with the Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Miami Heat. Now, he is in serious financial trouble. After an appearance in Clark County Court, Walker has been ordered to repay more than $750,000 in gambling debt to Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, and Red Rock Resort. Walker had no comment afterward. He was most recently employed in the NBA Developmental League with the Idaho Stampede.
