He just said that a fundamental rule of basketball is that "if a passer hits the receiver in the face, the receiver owes him a six pack".
hahaha Walton just going off last night. Great stuff.
During Stanford vs AZ commentator loves talking about a show played in AZ back in 1969.
Bill's got a great memory. Deadbase lists the following:
04-11-69 University Auditorium, U. of Az.,Tucson, Az. (FRI)
Cryptical> Other One> Cryptical> It's A Sin, Hard To Handle, Dark Star>
St. Stephen> The Eleven> Lovelight
sponsored by the Student Peace Association - tickets: $2 and $3
There are two copies of this show at archive.org, both of which list Morning Dew and Sittin' On Top Of The World, neither of which include either of those songs.

He basically just called for Ben Howlands head on national television..an awkward conversation between him and the other commentator on the state of that Pac 12 ensued. In typical Walton style he went on for about the next 5 minutes.

The other dude was talking about the empty seats in pauley pavilion and Bill Walton is like I think they got the wrong night or something. He is the only reason I have listened to a couple pac-12 games this year.
Same here. In Walton's defense, the Pac 12 is pathetic.
People are calling for his head, but he is the only reason to watch any games in this league. The teams and games are terrible. At least he makes it fun.
Bill must not be a big Keith fan I think I heard him give a shout out to Jerry, Phil, Bobby, Billy, and Mickey earlier. I think he referenced the Pauley Pavilion show that was just released in the Dave's Picks series
Hmm, did you just post something similar on PT?
Yeah, regardless of what you think about Walton as an analyst, there's a certain amount of respect you gotta have for a guy who is willing to "go there" and call for a coach's head.
Frankly, he may be right. Howland is underachieving again with some extremely talented players.
When isn't Bill Walton high?
We lead exciting lives.
indeed. Even just lurking on PT makes me feel dirty, but the cesspool element is entertaining. The wylyys/hartswick thread is some of the funniest stuff i've ever seen.
Does anybody think Pasch actually hates Walton? It's hard to tell.
I never know what to think about anything on there, but, as you said, it is entertaining. The thread about Plas's sister last week was one of the greatest things I've ever read.
I swear this thread was on here 5 or so years ago and it was 20-1 against Walton. Glad to see the tide has turned.
He is the only announcer I would watch a game for that I would otherwise not care about.
Lemme clarify. I would not want him commentating an MSU game. When he was an NBA announcer, I couldn't stand him doing the Pistons. He's great when I don't care about either of the teams, which is convenient since he is doing Pac12 basketball!
There's a nba video I used to watch as a kid. This one was all about bloopers and featured bill Walton and frank layden. At one point Walton keeps saying "dunks and bloopers?" over and over. Even as a 12 year old listening to Walton made me laugh. Though I hated him because whenever they'd show Bird stealing the Isiah pass they show the shot of Bill celebrating on the bench and it would make me so mad.
He killed a lot brain cells in his younger days. He's the Tim McCarver of college basketball. I turned the sound off.
"Oh my goodness the cannot even inbound the ball in bounds which is the first rule of inbounding!"
"How can you turn a 2 on 1 fast break on one end make a terrible pass and create a fast break for the other team on the other end!"
UCLA is in total disarray and now he pg is backing the ball up to half court! (Seconds later he blows by the guy guarding him and scores on an and 1).
Bill Walton is good entertainment...

Making up for lost time... He had/has a speech impediment.
Valentine's Day bump.
He just dropped the line: "never give your love to a foolish heart" and left his partner speechless. I don't even follow the Grateful Dead, but I knew what he was referring to.
"The RCMB on 247 is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet."
Bill's been giving a lot of props to MSU lately because of our big men. He just said Michigan State can win it all. "They're that good. They're tough. They're rugged. Their coach has that ability to breathe that ultimate life."
He loved Derrick Nix against Michigan, or as he called him, "that guy"
I think Walton was tripping out at the PAC 10 tournament.
Without reading any of the thread... the answer is Yes he is high and out of his mind mostly...
