Media Approval Ratings: Bill WaltonS

It is easy to forget sometimes that Bill Walton used to stutter. Remembering that little factoid makes his signature BOLD PROCLAMATIONS a little easier to handle; he wouldn't be Bill Walton if he didn't sound uncertain.

We feel like Walton lost a little bit of pathos when he stopped broadcasting Clippers games; that added some emotional heft, some angst, that might not be there anymore. We're surprised how well he plays with Stephen A. Smith sometimes; they're testaments to volume control, that's for sure.

And yes: He's the only person left on earth who still likes the Grateful Dead. We don't think the Grateful Dead like the Grateful Dead anymore.

So: Do you like the Bill Walton? Do you not like the Bill Walton? Throw it down!
