Bill Walton is everyone’s favorite Grateful Dead fan/late night college basketball analyst. Few things in college hoops are more fun than watching a game between two Pac-12 teams that features the Hall of Famer on the call, because invariably, Walton will go off talking about something that has nothing to do with hoops. He is such a delightful personality that he can make any college basketball game – whether it’s a thriller or a blowout – exponentially more fun. He also really likes volcanoes, which seems like a very Bill Walton thing to enjoy.
Walton’s personal life also seems to be rather upbeat and cheery, even when he goes through something unfortunate. For example, Walton lost his bicycle during a flight to Hawaii.
