OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. (AP) -Miami Heat forward Antoine Walker said Wednesday that he remains shaken after an armed robbery at his Chicago home.
``When your life's threatened, it's obviously going to take some time to get over it,'' Walker said in his first public comments since the robbery. ``I'm not Superman.''
Walker and a relative were bound at gunpoint while multiple robbers took a car, cash and jewelry from his residence Monday evening.
``I'm happy that I'm unharmed and safe, and so is my family,'' the three-time NBA All-Star told reporters gathered at his suburban summer basketball camp.
``The material things that were taken from me can obviously be replaced,'' he said.
The vehicle taken in the robbery was found, abandoned, in Chicago on Tuesday morning.
Police have not announced any arrests in the case.
Walker said he probably would move out of the plush River North neighborhood where the attack occurred, but not out of Chicago.
In July 2000, Walker - then a Boston Celtic - was the victim of an armed robbery along with NBA center Nazr Mohammed as they sat in a vehicle waiting for a restaurant on Chicago's South Side to open. Police said at the time that three men approached and demanded cash and valuables, which included a $55,000 wristwatch.
Walker averaged 8.5 points with Miami this past season and was a key part of the Heat's run to the NBA championship the year before.
