Did Walton even do game 2???? It has everything to do with how the Spurs are playing, especially like game 2, no matter who's doing the announcing your going to be ultra sensitive and not like the dude.

Dude, you're so wrong. Bill Walton LOVES the Spurs. In particular he loves Manu, Timmy and Pop. He's seen what the Spurs and Manu are capable of in the past and he expects a lot out of them in the playoffs.
He was riding Timmy's jock all game calling him the most decorated basketball player of the modern era.
In order to apprecitate Bill you've got to understand his schtick. He's the king of hyperbole, and I love it when the other commentators call him out on it. Take what he says with a grain of salt and you'll enjoy him much more.

I've read a couple of posts that says that Bill Walton jokes alot, my question is.....are you sure he's joking? Did he say is was joking or you just figured he was joking? The reason I am asking is because ALL of his commentary sounds the same to me....which is why I dont know if he is joking. Some of it is so far out there......you figure......he has to be joking.......but how do I know since it all sounds the same?

bill walton loves or hates the spurs depending on whether they're up two points or down two points. when your schtick is figured out, you lose respect in everybody's eyes.

He's a great commentator, and regardless of what's going on he's a Spurs fan. Why? Tim Duncan. He loves the big man game.

He is not a Spurs hater, he gives them some major props and so on everytime I am watching the game. He loves Manu, Horry is the greatest defender in the modern day era LOL. He said the footwork of Tim Duncan, he is the new Kevin Mchale of the 2000's, he loves watching Tim play too. This thread is off, sorry not everyone hates the Spurs like ESPN idiots do.

Bill Walton has said time and time again since Michael Jordan leaving the NBA that Tim Duncan is this era's most decorated player.

If that is negative, then just shoot me. Bill Walton gives criticism to everyone. If he does give us more, it's because he knows that we're capable of so much more.

It is stunning to me how people take Bill Walton so literally.

He's funny, informative, and entertaining.

He doesn't take himself very seriously - and yet, so many people on here do.

Amazing.

He likes to pull your chain and obviously, it's working.

So.......just for clarification.......everyone who does not like Bill Walton lacks intelligence and a sense of humor?

There are no commentators (other than Sean Elliott, of course) that can stomach the Spurs. We all know that. There never will be.

A few years ago I had NBA league Pass, and I watched a few of the Clippers games which were covered by Walton (yes, I was that bored). His color commentary was much more subdued, which led me to believe that what you see on the national broadcasts is an act.
I seem to recall an article on Walton that spelled this out - while not scripted, the producers give directions to Walton to play up the "goofy dude who says outrageous stuff" angle to the hilt.
Shame, really.

The thing people have to understand about Walton is there is usually some truth in everything he says. When he says Horry is the greatest inbound passer of all time, he doesn't mean that literally, he's saying Horry is a damn good inbound passer. When he says the de-evolution of Manu's game, he's just saying Manu is not playing as well as he did last year, not that Manu sucks. You have to read between the lines with Walton and that's what makes him so good and entertaining. To the sharp witted fans out there it's dry and boring to hear "Horry is a good inbound passer" or "Manu is not playing as well." He's a commentator for the saavy and intelligent basketball fans, and that's why a certain segment of the population won't like him. Some people want commentary spoon-fed to them and don't want to have to use their brains to read between the lines. I personally love it. It's a lot of fun to listen to Walton because he has a great wit. And yes, Walton loves the Spurs.

I like Bill Walton. If he bothers you, try thinking that he has absolutely NO short term memory from minute to minute. He speaks IN THE MOMENT and will contradict himself several times a game. He is there for comic relief. If the Spurs were playing their best game and beating the Mavs, you may even decide that he is funny.


BTW - he really does like the Spurs and is a great fan of Tim Duncan.

I was going to add my voice to the debate but you made the point I was going to make for me. Walton is living completely in the moment without regard to any overarching agenda.

When it comes to Bill Walton, you either get him or you don't. It's really that simple.

Or in some cases maybe some people do get his act but just don't think he's that good/funny. In that case it's just a matter of taste for the viewer.

Exactly.

I don’t think it’s about the Spurs at all.
Bill Walton exaggerates and changes his mind a lot. I’ve heard him go from praising a team in the 1st quarter to cursing them in the last. It’s what he does: he’s too quick and generous with the praise/hate.

Sounds like senility to me!

Some of it is so far out there......you figure......he has to be joking.......but how do I know since it all sounds the same?
I think its pretty obvious if you're really paying attention.
Besides, I watched a few episodes of his reality show that was on ESPN a couple of years ago and he came across as a smart guy with a quick wit...overall a pretty cool dude.
I don't know why you let him get your panties in a wad.
