Please Muzzle Bill Walton

Bill Walton is the most annoying person on television. No one understands why he has a job at ESPN, no one likes him. I don't understand why he has a job, at all. It makes me cringe to listen to this idiot. To make matters worse, he's been the color-commentator for the past two games of the Western Conference Finals.

Bill Walton, please don't act like an all-knowing basketball savant anymore. Things that make you sound stupid...

"No one is helping guard Tony Parker when he drives to the lane."

... followed by, not just two minutes later ...

"Where's the defense!?! Tony Parker drives and two guys guard him and he just throws it to the open man. Unbelieveable."

Make up your mind, Bill Walton. ESPN, please don't let this guy talk anymore. Get him a human muzzle. Glue his mouth shut a la "House of Wax." Make him listen to himself, no wait, he would love that. Ah-ha! Stick Manu Ginobili's jock in his mouth, since he wants to be his sex slave.

"Manu's mother had the foresight to get him English lessons at age eight."

Ginobili is from Argentina, where apparently English is the second-most popular language. Besides that fact, it also appears that one out of every six people, in the entire world, speak English. While it's impressive that Ginobili speaks English, Bill, you sound like an idiot when you say things like that.

Bill Walton needs to be stopped.

Also, when a career 69% free throw shooter is shooting 86% for the series (after a 15-15 night at the line), don't you have to ask "what's going on?" Funny, it WAS asked, and Tim Duncan's response was, "they're going in now." No kidding. How about this for a better answer... "I'm taking an average of 15 seconds at the line to shoot. The refs don't care about the rules." The NBA clearly states you should only get 10 seconds, or it's a violation (see "Section III-Time Limit"). Impressive.

I wholeheartedly agree with you Seth, Walton is very very annoying. And the fact that he talks like he has something jammed up his nose only reinforces the fact he shouldn't be paid for talking.

I think Chris Berman is far more annoying though, than Bill Walton. Berman uses the same 6 jokes in repertory, all of which are lame. Secondly, he decides not to breath when speaking, meaning he comes to the end of his sentences and has no breath left and grinds out whatever he has left to say in an inaudible growl. Thirdly, he feels that since he has been on ESPN for 25 years that this somehow makes him an expert on sports. Its funny how for an expert he can be so stupid. Fourthly, his comb over. Fifthly, his retarded and completely played out nicknames.

ESPN apparently just has no screening process for who they hire as sportscasters. Oh wait...yes they do, all you have to do is win a reality game show on ESPN and boom, you're in.

I'm trying to understand what that foresight was. So is Manu playing in the NBA because he's been speaking English since eight? Dude, most of us (well, you) have been speaking English since birth (well, maybe not THAT early), but that never helped any of us become professional basketball players. Plus, look at Yao and all the Japanese now in the MLB. They couldn't order a #1 at McD's, but that didn't stop them from becoming millionaires.

I am an avid Pro Basketball viewer, and I was watching a game last night between the Denver Nuggets and the Houston Rockets. Bill Walton said some of the stupidest things that made me think, ”What the heck is this guy doing on ESPN?” Some years ago He said something on the lines of Michael Jordan was not one of the best players that he had ever seen, and from that point forward he has proven to me, how much of an IDIOT he is. I am glad to see others are noticing that this idiot should not be commentating. After last nights game I couldn’t wait to get online and see if I was the only one that thought this guy needs to be watching the games instead of commentating.

I agree, Walton is a moron and so is Mark Jackson. I have emailed both ABC and ESPN to find out how many signatures are required to get them fired.
