NBA Hall of Famer Bill Walton comments on Bono

from ESPN.com...

Bono's got it together. Not only is he currently raising awareness in the Midwest about the AIDS epidemic in Africa but he also gets to spend a week on the road with Ashley Judd. It's either that or a Denver/Memphis game. I love synergy and the big picture.

His son plays basketball for Arizona, and when they played Illinois in the NCAA tournament two years ago, he repeatedly referred to our team as "thugs" and "dirty". You think he might have been a bit biased? He's a schmuck.

At least he's got some respect in the right place.

Well you might be lucky not to have heard of him. He can say some off the wall statements.

You know who i hate. The guy from HBO fighting, i think his name is Jim Leddereman or something. You know the guy who always trys to say something that will always be remembered. He thinks everytime he talks he is saying his final words and they will be the words everyone remmebers him by.

Is Bill Walton an NBA commentator now? (Forgive my ignorance, I hardly ever watch NBA basketball). He can't be as bad as Dick Vitale, the college hoops commentator. There's one guy who makes me want to throw things at my TV!

Walton makes Vitale look like Keith Jackson, or some other announcer that is worth a shit.....

When you stop hoping that Walton will say something smart when ya watch him and just laugh at the stupidity, it makes watching him that much more enjoyable. And let's stop the hatin' on Dickey V... he IS college basketball.

Best use of the word "asshat" I've seen...LMAO...but I do agree, Walton is an idiot...

As far as Dickie V., I wouldn't mind him (I don't, really) it's just that every announcer now has to have a color guy doing similar gimmicks..."take the rock to the hole big fella" doesn't have the same meaning coming from Billy Packer, ya know?
