    Watching the Oregon vs.Arizona game. Bill Walton is making very little sense and keeps talking about how it's Bob Marley's birthday.

    While listening to him, I just always assume he's high. It makes it more understandable, and enjoyable.

    I have sometimes wondered if he would sound absolutely amazing if I too was high. Like some movies that are better when you're baked.

    Whenever someone mentions Bill Walton, I immediately think of this gem:

    I keep expecting the camera to switch to him crushing a bag of chips.

    Granted, I just flipped it over for about 2 minutes, but he doesn't sound any different than he always does. That certainly doesn't mean he is not stoned to the bejesus belt.

    Remember him doing NBA color for I think ABC with Steve "Snapper" Jones? Snapper would be talking about post entry defense or some other basketball topic, and old Bill would chime in with some off-the-wall nonsense about his days following the Dead around. No wonder I'm constantly behind in my hoops knowledge, those were my formative years and they were filled with Bill Walton's analysis. Plus, I think he's gotten even worse since then.

    If Bill Walton is the analyst, I'm watching. Tremendously entertaining, and very knowledgeable.

    I remember in a broadcast earlier this year Walton was trying to pimp the Pac 12 as the best conference. He said something to the effect of, "You can talk all you want about the basketball played in the Big 10, but tell me, what Big 10 city would you want to LIVE in". He literally used that as his justification...

    He, Dennis Rodman and Gary Busey are all more or less the same person, except two of them chose basketball as their profession and the other chose acting.

    It would be a bigger deal if you tuned in and Bill Walton was sober.

    He really is hard to listen to. Definitely says some weird things and weird times.

    Fans of west coast teams think there is an east coast bias and that's why no one watched their games. It's really just a "can't watch Bill Walton" bias. Bill Walton has done WAY too much LSD and mushrooms in his life. I feel bad for the guy that has to work games with him.
