Did anyone see todays "Cold Pizza"
Bill Walton was on it. He called Dallas a team that willl spend an entire season in hangover.
He also said the Lakers(a team his son is on) were the best team in the west.
They gave him 5 minutes for questions and he couldn't stop suck**g Kobe's D**k.
It was sad, this guy represents the NBA and all he can do is come across as a hippy who's late for a phish concert. I hate Stern for making @$$HOLES like this the face of the NBA.

Bill Walton is a controversial character, you just have to deal with him. He can be very entertaining at times, especially when he's on the play-by-plays.

BTW, you don't have to censor "sucking" on the "....he couldn't stop sucking Kobe's Dick" sentence.

Stern made him the face of the NBA? Stern wasnt around when Walton was a player, and Stern has little if any control over the sports broadcasting crew.

Walton is an idiot. I'm all for any and all "Bill Walton is useless" threads. Excusing him as schtick is dumb. Excusing him as controversial is pretending he's something he's not. There are thousands of people in the world that could be occassionaly insightful or entertaining during play by play whose personality wouldn't be such a beating.

Bill Walton Spends Entire Lakers Broadcast Gushing About His Son
November 30, 2006 | Onion Sports



LOS ANGELES—Bill Walton, the former NBA Most Valuable Player and popular current NBA broadcaster, spent the entire running time of Tuesday night's Milwaukee Bucks–Los Angeles Lakers game lavishing praise and affection on his son Luke, a Lakers small forward.

"Just look at my big boy Luke standing tall and proud," Walton said during the visiting team introductions, ignoring the on-screen graphics displaying the career stats of Bucks All-Star guard Michael Redd. "While my mentor, shaman, and spirit guide John Wooden taught me 99.999 percent of almost everything I knew about the greatest sport in the world, Luke taught me everything else—and even more about that greatest game of all—the ceaseless jubilant dance of the great ever-turning mandala of Life. Truly, the boy is father to the man. The boy is father to the man."

"Nice pass!" Walton added, as Luke found himself boxed in at the post and kicked the ball back out to the top of the key, where Lamar Odom's jump shot put the Lakers up 11-9. "Nice pass indeed."

"It does my old heart good to see Luke keep on truckin' in this big old City of Angels, where I made such fond memories in a different era and learned for myself, like the great poet Bob Dylan once asked a heartbroken nation, how many roads a man must walk down before they could call him a man," Walton continued, as the second quarter of play began with the score already an astounding 67-44 in favor of the Lakers. "Yes, I may indeed be suffering from a 'touch of gray,' as the great Jerry Garcia once said, but with the sight of my pride, my joy, and my only true immortality before me, I will get by."

"Oh, yes! Throw it down, big man! Throw it down!" Walton said in a rare acknowledgment of on-court events as Luke Walton scored two of his 14 points on a wobbly lay-up. "It's just possible that that was absolutely the smoothest and most fundamentally sound shot that I've witnessed yet this decade. Truly, the student has become a master in his own right, and the apple has not fallen far from the gnarled, wizened tree with two bad ankles I've become."

"Why, it was just a week or so ago, I was watching the great John Fogerty sing 'Fortunate Son' for the good people during the halftime show of our Thanksgiving holiday," Walton continued, as Kobe Bryant collided with Milwaukee center Dan Gadzuric, suffered brutal compound twin spiral fractures of his right fibula and tibia, and was carried off the floor with his career almost certainly over and his prospects of walking again in doubt. "And I thought to myself: Neither you nor I, Mr. Fogerty, you faded sage of a more innocent yet equally doomed epoch, neither you nor I are fortunate sons. But I hope my Luke is."

"Looks like we're ready to get going again after the interruption," Walton added as the last of Bryant's blood was mopped up and the younger Walton inbounded the ball. "Nice pass."

"I couldn't give him the world without war my generation wanted so badly for his, but I tried to raise that boy right, and I share this with all the fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, and—and everyone out there with a family," Walton added as play stopped for almost 15 minutes while a Bengal tiger, brought in as part of the Lakers' floor show, escaped and brutally savaged seven audience members. "We are all fortunate to have one another. Your team can be your family, and I played on a lot of close teams, but Luke, Adam, and Nathan, and Chris, they're my Omega Point. And what's more, they're my actual family."

"Yes, I'm their father," Walton added. "They're my sons. And Luke, my son, is playing his heart out tonight."

"Thanks for joining myself and Snapper Jones for this meeting of the Bucks and Lakers, the team for which my boy Luke has become a man right before your very eyes and mine—eyes he'll steal right off your face if you're not careful, but that's all right… the future belongs to him," Walton said as the broadcast concluded. "To him and all the fine young men everywhere, blessed be them all. Amaste."

The Bucks won the game, 109-105. Luke Walton finished with 14 points and seven rebounds in 29 minutes of play.

What did Stern have to do with Walton's appearance on Cold Pizza?
Nothing really I just like blaming Stern for eveything stupid about basketball.
No-tolerance Techs, No standing on the sidelines rules, Walton on TV.
Anything dumb and Stern is to blame. Hell this thread is his fault.

Agreed.
However,he does have an infuence on who is chosen to announce the games.
Not a big influence, but an influence none the less. And if it is one more thing I can blame on Stern, all the better.

I don't think he has any influence on who TNT or ABC or anyone else hires.

He's got to have some say on it.
If he doesn't like a play-by-play guy, I'm sure he could have that guy removed one way or another.
Wow a couple of Mavs fans discussing if Stern is to blame for something.
Stern Is Always To Blame.
In fact that should be a section in this forum, any bad news about anything,
A mavs player injured, War in Iraq, Aids in Africa, it should all go in a section called
It's Stern's Fault.
