After a hard fought series battle, there will always be love and respect between Stephen Curry and Lonnie Walker IV.
Walker IV revealed Saturday via Instagram an autographed jersey gifted by Curry to him following the Golden State Warriors’ six-game elimination against the Los Angeles Lakers.
On the jersey, the superstar point man wrote, “To Lonnie, keep building. All love. Will never forgive you for Game 4…”
Walker IV notably emerged as the Lakers’ unsung hero against the Warriors in their marquee Western Conference Semis bout. Back in Game 4, the swingman erupted for 15 points – all in the fourth frame – to help his team claw a 3-1 series edge via 104-101 victory.
Walker IV and Los Angeles went on to advance after a wire-to-wire 122-101 Friday Game 6 beatdown against Golden State. They will meet the top-seeded Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals, with Game 1 set for tip-off on Tuesday.
