history nba national career


American basketball player

The professional basketball career of Bill Walton, though plagued by injury, had flashes of brilliance that prompted sportscasters to compare him with the greatest centers in the history of the National Basketball Association (NBA). In a pro ball career spanning thirteen years, Walton played for three teams—the Portland Trailblazers, the San Diego (later Los Angeles) Clippers, and the Boston Celtics—helping to lead two of them to national championships. Elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1993, he was named one of the fifty greatest players in NBA history in 1996. Since 1990, Walton has worked as a sportscaster covering basketball.

Bill Walton knows good music when he hears it.

That is why in this modern day it would not be too hard to go on youtube and check out the band Lunasa.

As a Dead Head myself I have not seen

a band with this much energy for a long time.
