Yeah maybe...

There were a few seasons that Walker played with guys who outscored him by a lot, but it wasn't actually very often. Walker actually led his teams in scoring a few times, and was second a few more.

Based on the quotes I was able to dig up over the last few days, I'm not sure Walker wasn't actually a good cog in the offense. He was well known as an excellent playmaker.
