    Default I HATE BILL WALTON

    Is it just me, or do you get the feeling that everything he says is in some way directed at Larry Bird and/or the Pacers?

    I might just REALLY hate the guy, but in watching tonight's matchup in Philly...he kept referring to Detroit at "the world champs".

    "the world champs are taking it to the sixers right now"
    "the world champs are coming out for the best time of the game, 3rd quarter on the road".
    "the world champs"...blah blah blah...

    I HATE BILL WALTON.

    OK, I know he really wasn't even thinking about the Pacers while working that game, but I just hate that pothead, tie-died idiot.

    Bill really slammed Doc "cry-me-a" Rivers earlier today for saying Reggie was getting sympathy calls, he said it a was ludicrous statement.

    He may like Reggie, but other than the IT years, he does NOT give the P's any respect...I know I'm not the only one who notices it, because he gets booed every time he's in the fieldhouse...

    heck...even Luke Walton got booed that year he played for Arizona in the Wooden Classic...I thought that was funny...

    I think the next game it's only right for him to call the Pacers "the world champions."

    Well, to be fair, I thought it was interesting when Walton said "It's so unlike the world champs to argue with the officials."

    Obviously, Walton hasn't watched the Pistons much this season.

    It's really hard to say anything about that in a Pacers forum. The Pacers are one of the worst teams in the league when it comes to arguing with officials.

    Well, the Pistons are right there with them. I think Sheed has had that effect on his teammates.

    Walton rubs me the wrong way sometimes too. He's a real bandwagon type. He loved Kobe and Shaq so much he probably has them pinned up in his locker at the gym.

    I guess I prefer national announcers to be respectful of both teams. Obviously everyone is going to have their favorites, but he does seem biased. I will give him this - he truly loves basketball. ...and he did give some props out to AI and CWeb during their win tonight - but then again, he kinda had to.

    What I don't like is people calling it "world" champs. They are NBA champs, not the "world" champs. The world champs are Argentina

    I used to care about announcers using NBA champs and world champs synonamously, but I guess I stopped caring after a while. Any NBA championship team should be able to beat any national team (with the possible exception of the USA if they're team was put together well, and even then i dunno).

    If you're going to be pedantic Suave, Argentina are the reigning Olympic Champions and Yugoslavia are the reigning World Champions.

    allow me to clarify my original statement...it was meant as humor...but many of you don't really know me well enough to see the smart-alec in my type...the only true part of my statement is my disgust for this moron.

    I can't stand Walton, and since I know that he hates LB and the Pacers in general, I can tie everything he says into a dig against them...I know it isn't true...but it makes me laugh to put that on him from time to time. My wife just rolls her eyes at me...but then she laughs, too. Not to mention his ANNOYING voice.

    Huh? Is that a movie idea? Something like, I, Robot? (Where are PFFL and Twes when you need them?)

    Are we about to see millions of animated prophylactics banding together to take over the world?

    I can just see the scene titles now:

    "Didn't know there was a pinhole didja?"

    "And You Though You Needed a Large!" (subtitled "Size Doesn't Matter")

    "The Lubricants Slip Away"

    "Your Ribs Are Showing"

    "Ugh - Sticky"

    "Oops"

    "Raincoats are for Sissies"

    "You Weenie You!"

    "Sometimes Two AREN'T Better Than One"

    "Betrayed by Petroleum Jelly"

    "Lost in a Tunnel"

    "When a Three-Pack isn't Enough."

    And of course the, er, climax of the story ...

    "The Battle of the Truck Stop Restrooms."

    You guys need to learn Bill Walton has a schtick. Some people take him too literally.

    It's ok not to like the schtick but realize some of the things he says are not to be taken seriously.

    As for getting angry he was calling the Piston the world champs.... Uhhhhh... The ARE the world champs.

    I personally can't stand Bill Walton. It makes me feel dirty whenever we agree on something. Luckily it doesn't happen often.

    I don't have a problem with him calling the Pistons the world champions because, unfortunatly, they are. I'm sure if I heard him do it over and over again it would drive me nuts. My solution: mute button.

    If any of you think I'm not serious I have an example. I was home alone watching the last game of the conference finals against the Knicks the year we ended up going to the finals. I don't remember who the national announcers were, but I couldn't stand them. I hit the mute button. I would have turned on Mark and Slick, but my stereo was right next to the TV and therefore because of interference from the TV the sound on the stereo was just static. Yes, I watched us finally beat the Knicks to advance to the NBA Finals with no sound.

    Yeah...I know...but I just got sick of hearing it. Kind of like my wife always telling me "We're broke!". It's true...but I don't want to hear it OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER...AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER...
    AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER...
    AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER...
    AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER...
