It was just his second game back from an extended ramp-up to prepare an often-sore knee for the 2020-21 NBA season, but Kemba Walker looked great in limited minutes in the Boston Celtics’ 117 – 109 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday.

Of course, more floor time and a more regular rotation might have resulted in a win for the Celtic floor general and his team, which Walker talked about in the postgame virtual scrum with reporters. He also spoke on how much better he feels and how much more he can do having taken the time to properly prepare for the season, as well as his feelings on the team’s free throw disparity in the loss.

Check the video embedded above out for yourself to take the temperature of the New Yorker for the season ahead.

Despite the loss to the 76ers, Walker was in high spirits for what he is able to do moving forward — it’s definitely worth the watch.
