From Adversity to Achievement

Walter graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1991, where he played basketball for four years. After breaking his foot twice during his senior year, Walter thought his dream to become a professional basketball player was dead. But with the right mindset, dedication and perseverance to be the best performer, Walter fulfilled his dream.

On November 7, 1992 Walter became the first ever undrafted rookie to start for the Dallas Mavericks in a season-opening game in the National Basketball Association. The following game Walter scored 25 points against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the highest ever for a rookie for the Mavericks – a record lasting nearly 30 years until Luka Doncic eclipsed that record.
