Please let Bill Walton announce NBA games again
Classic quotes from last nights Suns vs Kings game.
"That was the fifth worst possession in the history of Phoenix Suns basketball. And who would have thought we'd see two of the six worst in the same game?"
"So skilled. So poised. The Championship Demeanor."
"One of the most beautiful players I've ever watched."
"I would walk about the house just screaming his name. My wife would be like, 'What are you doing?'"
"einstein..davinci...jobs...and now... tyreke evans"
If I'm not mistaken, he stopped announcing full-time due to health issues.
I hope he coaches UCLA. That would be cool. The guy is smart and hilarious and is one of the few to have one titles with both UCLA and the Boston Celtics. He also won a title in Portland when Jack Ramsey was coaching.
He could coach big men and people know who he is. He has a great resume and would be a "name" coach.
Awful Announcing loves Bill Walton. They got some great video clips of Walton at his very best, including Ray Lewis limo jokes.
When he was with Ralph Lawler doing Clippers games for years, they made the most entertaining announcing duo in the league. Ralph:"Olowokandi turns left, shoots, bank shot of the glass...nice play by the Kandi-man" Bill: "OLOWOKANDI!! Showing why he is the most dominant center since Kareem! The crowd is LITERALLY surging toward the court!" Ralph: "Since Kareem, huh?" Bill: "Give or take a few hundred centers".
It was back and forth like this that made me appreciate Bill's tongue-in-cheek humor and quick wit. I want him back in LA!!
"The defense looked Flumixed" , who the heck uses that word?
Can't believe this hasn't been posted
There are a lot of Walton gems yet to be discovered.
It's the like gold rush of the 1800s.
