Antoine Walker was an NBA All-Star three times for the Boston Celtics. He was a member of the Miami Heat's championship team in 2006. He earned nearly $110 million in NBA contracts between 1996 and 2008. But now he's playing for the Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League. The 34-year-old says he left the game too soon, but his comeback attempt is also tied to his substantial debt. Only A Game's Doug Tribou reports on the biggest star to play in the NBA's minor league.

(Like Walker ... ok, not at all like Walker ... Doug Tribou took his own shot at making it to the NBA in 2009 when he participated in an open D-League tryout.)

This segment aired on January 1, 2011.
