What Kemba Walker did before his introductory press conference will excite Celtics fans

Justin Leger

Kemba Walker's talent was enough to win over Celtics fans when it announced he was signing with Boston, but talent might not be his most important attribute.

Walker built a reputation as one of the hardest workers in the game during his time with the Hornets. The three-time All-Star put that work ethic on display before his introductory press conference on Wednesday by getting a workout in with his C's teammates, per team reporter Marc D'Amico.

Walker's attitude comes as a breath of fresh air for a team that could use some positivity entering the new season. The 29-year-old followed up his workout on Wednesday by saying all the right things in his introductory press conference, including that he'll "gel well" with his new teammates. Given the glaring team chemistry issues that lingered throughout the 2018-19 campaign, that's what Celtics fans undoubtedly want to hear.
