As expected, Kemba Walker received a warm welcome in his return to Charlotte on Thursday night.

Walker, who spent eight seasons with the Hornets before signing with the Celtics over the summer, was honored with a tribute video and got a huge ovation in his first game back at Spectrum Center.

Watch below:

A fitting reception on #KembaWalkerDay.

Walker made three NBA All-Star teams as a member of the Hornets, who drafted him with the ninth overall pick back in 2011. Though his time in Charlotte has come to an end, it's clear he'll always hold a special place in the city's heart.
