I had hoped Lonnie Walker would be one of those Spurs who stays the course and becomes part of San Antonio pop culture - his hair, which he eventually cut off, already did. He opened up to us about the abuse he suffered as a child. He showed up to help clean after the riots in 2020. He really felt like a part of the community, and now...it's sad to see him go. Lonnie Walker is now a Laker. Yikes it pains me to say that! Let's face it, the NBA is different now, and we have been spoiled with Tim Duncan and Manu who played their entire career here.
Lonnie feels the same way about San Antonio and posted this heartfelt tribute online to the city that started his career. We'll miss you Lonnie! Good luck!
