This is in no way a hot take; this is a widely accepted stance. Whether he is commentating a god-awful Pac 12 game at 2AM or being interviewed on ESPN’s The Jump, he always finds a way to make us think he is crazier than the last time we saw him. Make sure to watch the video at the end.
If you don’t know the story from The Jump, buckle in. Bill Walton was on the show and that episode was a beautiful trainwreck. Afterwards, Bill Walton gets up and takes a picture of Bill Russell off the wall and begins to walk out. Host Rachel Nichols tells him that he can’t have it due to the fact that there will be a blank spot on the wall for the next show. So, Walton takes out a sharpie that he was just carrying around like the maniac he is and signs the wall where the picture used to be.
Aside from being full time nutcase, Bill Walton also makes Pac 12 games watchable. He does everything except for talk about basketball. No matter what is going on in the game, Bill will continue with the story about a wedding he attended the past weekend. If you can muster up the strength to sit through an Arizona State vs. Cal game at 11PM, do it. You will see some crazy things. Like Bill Walton taking his shirt off on national television…
Or eat a candle while it is lit. To be completely fair, he was dared to.
