Bill Walker Video: Watch New York Knicks Guard Throw Down Dunk of the Night

Sam WestmorelandFeatured ColumnistNovember 10, 2010

Well, it's still early in the day, but it appears that the New York Knicks guard Bill Walker's dunk video has gone viral. 

Walker submitted the dunk of the night Tuesday against the Milwaukee Bucks. He drives past Bucks guard Kenyon Dooling, only to come face-to-face with the shot-blocking center Andrew Bogut. 

Rather than try and deliver a floater over Bogut, Walker opts to dunk on him, delivering a thunderous slam on top of Bogut's head. 

Walker is a 6'6" shooting guard out of Kansas State. He's a third-year player, averaging about 4.3 points and 1.7 rebounds per game in just over 15 minutes. He's not shooting the ball all that well, hitting just 31 percent of his threes and 41 percent of his shots overall, and he's yet to play more than 20 minutes in a game this season. 

Coming out of high school, Walker was a prized recruit, and was quite the catch for the Wildcats. However, he has yet to make a significant impact in the NBA, despite his superb athleticism.

The dunk was the only highlight of the night for Walker, who scored just those two points, shot 1-of-5 from the field and managed to pick up four fouls in just 20 minutes of action. 

The dunk also didn't do all that much to help the Knicks' cause in this one, as they fell to the Bucks, 107-80. Amar'e Stoudamire led all Knicks with 19 points, but New York just couldn't find the basket in this one, succumbing to the Bucks' balance and lockdown defense.
