Naturally, it wouldn’t be a Bill Walton broadcast without him working on his moves for the post-game Vegas club scene.

How else would you prepare for a nationally televised broadcast besides casually throwing back some fire to get the juices flowing?
.@DavePasch: I was talking to Bobby Hurley before the game. I don’t know where you were.
Bill Walton: I was eating fire.

Bill Walton has no time for math! There are Dead shows to attend and fire to eat!
Bill Walton just asked “how many years from now is 26 years?” Thank you for your life, Bill.

Would it really be a Bill Walton broadcast without his undying love of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead making an appearance?
“You’ve got to win here in Vegas.”
“Las Vegas, please … Jerry Garcia does not sing Bama Getaway.”
