    Bill Walton is insufferable

    His tie die shirt and Grateful Dead references have officially become intolerable.
    I can't finish watching this Arizona game without puncturing by ear drums in with a bic pen, and it's a pretty good game.
    How does he even have a gig?
    Someone at ABC/Disney needs to tell him he looks and sounds like a complete buffoon.
    The regular gambler/sportsman doesn't give two shits about Jerry Garcia, and the ones that do probably don't want to hear it on a broadcast.

    I enjoy him, but I can understand why others don't like him. He is pure entertainment.

    I get the entertainment part, that's why I called him a buffoon, because amusing is associated with buffoonery, but it's way too much.

    I find it funny now. Used to piss me off but his on going ramblings have grown on me I guess. I loved it the other night when him and Dickie V called that Cavs game. I can see how he would bother a lot of people though.

    Bill is the nicest guy you will ever meet

    Talked to him for an hour at one of Larry's 4th/JULY parties

    Is he a little crazy?? Yes, but he is a great guy and is a joy to talk to. Also can drink like a fish along with larry

    David West couldn't hang, passed out in the pool house

    I'm a fan. I don't like the Dead and all the stuff he likes, but his commentary is still good at times. He is entertaining. Just works for me.

    I'm glad to see him commentating again.. He's a spicer for sure.. I find him to be silly... I like him even with is Greatful Dead tie dye references... He's a clown..

    The Grateful Dead are some of the best musicians in Rock and Roll history. You're really missing out.

    I hate Bill Walton with a passion.


    Literally can't stand to watch any game he broadcasts with volume on. Ruins the game.

    Only saw two Dead shows with Jerry and they played Uncle John's Band at one while I was tripping balls. It was a spiritual experience.

    Enjoy Walton and all of his goofy allusions.
    Buffoonery surely...But it works for me.

    Dead work for me too...Barely remember '67
    Halloween bash with Pigpen and the Dead at Winterland.
    Augustus Stanley Owsley had grocery bags full of his 1st batch of STP on the
    ticket collectors table and each guest got to partake.

    I was just talking about Walton the other night with a buddy of mine.

    Yes, he is a clown.

    Yes, his schtick can be annoying

    Yes, I like him anyway. Lol. Not even sure why.

    Part of it is that you can tell he is a functioning alcohol. I have always liked those guys. Reminds me of me.

    He makes games that are hard to watch, watchable. Even if the game is a route or just a terribly played game, instead of changing the channel I just listen to him ramble on about anything but the game. His partner always has to try and get him back on track or randomly chime in every couple of minutes with something about the game its priceless

    Bill has a job becaus he is one of the greatest basketball players ever.
    Bill is very personable.
    Bill while a hardcore leftist gets along with everyone and this helps with any career field.

    I find him entertaining and think he brings positivity to the job.

    Dave Pasch mentioned on air Saturday night that they would be announcing the Kansas/Texas game on Feb 25th (ESPN). Walton didn't seem happy about having to leave the friendly tree hugging confines of the West Coast.
