How in the hell is espn still paying him to do games. Watching Oregon v Ucla and it is pure comedy. Serious commentators must hate him.

He can be entertaining at times but mostly he's just annoying.

I do like the games he announces when a team from our "truck stop conference" is beating a team from "the conference of champions."

Did you see what he said about Liberty? He hates them and said even scheduling Liberty was a stain on UCLA's storied program.  He also said if you don't believe him, Google them and you'll see why.

I wonder what he thinks of BYU and other religious schools.

He’s not your typical boring announcer which is refreshing. He can say some of the most outrageous things and is the king of hyperbole. He is the only person I know that has a teepee in his back yard.

Loved hearing him defending the conference of champions probably getting 1 bid. Even he's having a hard time

Bil is a legend. 

He's been great whenever he does a BYU game.  Does trivia on the Mormon Pioneers.  Talks about Danny Ainge and Jimmer Fredette.

I like listening to Walton spin his tales. Major props should go to his broadcast partner Dave Pasch, he is the perfect straight man for Walton's antics. He never really gets thrown off and just hangs in there calling the game.

What’s funny is when he calls Walton on some of his comments and Walton doubles down. Wooden must have had fun coaching him. Although Walton was a helluva competitor no matter the opponent. The game he had against Memphis in the NCAA national championship game is one of the better individual finals games in history. He was something like 19-23 in FG and had over 40 points. Foot injuries kept him from being a great pro.

I agree with this, but phucking Walton is still too much.

Walton drained 21 of 22 shots — and unofficially 25 of 26, as four were disallowed under the game’s no-dunking rule at the time — in arguably the greatest single performance in NCAA history. Scored 44 points.

I love him! lol

He's like my stoner uncle watching sports. I toke too, but not like he does. My favorite Waltonism was from the NBA Eastern Conf Finals back when the Knicks & Heat went at it, "When you're a Knicks fan and all your hopes & dreams lie on the shoulders of Charlie Ward...well that's just sad." I was in a room full of Knick fans. Their reaction was priceless.

I think I heard on a basketball telecast last night that Walton holds the career FG percent made record for college basketball based on some minimum number of attempts. 

Regarding his announcing you either like him or hate him. Personally I find him entertaining. My eyes can tell me what is going on in the game. His off the wall stories at times make me burst out laughing. I’m really surprised he hasn’t made a comment yet to get him in hot water.
