Henry Walker Returns To The NBA With Eye-Popping Dunk As Exclamation Point

Despite struggling with a bevy of on and off the court issues in most recent seasons, Henry (formerly known as Bill) Walker has seemingly come out on top.

Choosing to hit the D-League hardwood in hopes of making it back to The Association, Walker has strutted his stuff with the Sioux Falls Skyforce over parts of the last two seasons. During the 2014-15 campaign, the swingman has averaged 15.2 points on 47% from the field and 45% from deep.

Having last played in the NBA in 2011-12, Walker was known as a high-flying youngster with the potential to score in bunches when his team was in need of a injection of life on the offensive end.

Fast-forward nearly three seasons later, and Walker found himself back on the big league stage once again. And coincidentally enough, he picked up right where he left off, displaying a familiar tenacious effort on offense.

Signed by the affiliated Miami Heat following a couple of trade deadline deals, Walker made his mark by adding 11 points in 21 points on Monday night. Not only did he convert on three impressive daggers from downtown, but his return was all the more impressively punctuated by this eye-popping slam dunk. Take a look below for more.
