Walton is the American Joyce/Gandhi

Bill Walton’s podcast with Bill Simmons is so joyful, so full of life that it has not only made me completely reevaluate my feelings about Walton but reaffirmed my belief in humanity and love of basketball. It’s like getting punched in the head with sunshine and warm fuzzies.

    that podcast is awesome. Simmons literally can’t get a word in at times because Walton talking about basketball is a force that cannot be stopped. I never had a hatred for Walton, I liked his enthusiam, disliked his habit of turning every play or player into a game altering event or player. But after listening to him on there I think maybe it’s because he is so passionate about basketball, and apparently other things, that to him a perfectly executed pick and roll or watching Steve Nash run the break really is a life altering event for him.
