Basketball Analyst Bill Walton Continues to Be a National Treasure

Bill Walton, the former UCLA basketball great from the late 70’s, is never short of extreme hyperbole and entertaining tangents during game telecasts. His analysis during a men’s basketball game between Texas A&M and Arizona on ESPN2 on Dec. 5 was no exception.

During the second half, Walton offered a philosophical view on one’s self in response to whether he had considered changing his name, suggesting he “impale” himself for previously praising the game’s referees, possessed a picture of the grandchildren of his play-by-play announcing partner Dave Pasch unbeknownst to Pasch, compared himself to solar energy, gushed over attending a recent concert that featured Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, and considered it a “nightmare” for the losing team of this game.
