There were 171 games canceled this season by the coronavirus, which caused the league to suspend operations on March 11. Typically, a mid-June end to the finals is followed by about a 3 1/2-month break before the following training camp.

Walker's 1968 song "Mr. Bojangles" would go on to become a standard of the American songbook, spawning covers from incredibly diverse artists including Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Sammy Davis Jr., JJ Cale, John Denver, Neil Diamond and many more over the decades. He released over 30 albums, including "It's About Time" in 2018. His first claim to fame came with a small group of his guy friends when they got together in Oneonta High School and formed the group The Tones.

He is survived by his manager-wife, Susan, daughter Jessie Jane and son and fellow musician Django Walker.
