Bill Walton on Boris Diaw and the Age of the Romantics

Bill Walton always knows how to bring a touch of class to an NBA broadcast. Here he is, courtesy of our friends at Behind the Steel Curtain, rapping poetic about God-knows-what.

Yeah this is one of my favorite Walton moments. Bill cracks me up. You either love him or hate him. If you take him seriously, you're going to hate him.

Some of my faves from him:

"Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards."

"Greg Ostertag is one of the top centers on this planet!"

"Memo to Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker: Couldn't you wait until at least the All-Star break to have the franchise suffer its worse loss in its storied history? Bill Russell just called looking for an address to send his 11 championship rings back to the Celtics because he is so disappointed."

"You look at Vladimir Radmanovic, this guy is cut from stone. As if Michelangelo was reading and a lightening bolt flashed before him."

“If Eric Piatkowski continues playing at this level, he’s going to replace Jerry West on the NBA logo.”

“The only man who can stop Cliff Robinson IS Cliff Robinson. The man is unstoppable even at 38.”

“The art of tossing up the jump ball has really declined. These officials need to spend more time practicing in off-season.”

And probably my fave...

Walton: “That has to be a foul.” Snapper Jones: “Against who?” Walton: “Against the game of basketball.”
