Bill Walton

I’ve been catching up on a lot of Pac-12 Conference of Champions basketball over the last week, which means I’ve been listening to a lot of Bill Walton. When you are exposed to such a highly concentrated a dose of Walton in a short amount of time, you start to pick up on the patterns of what he’s saying. There’s actually a method to the madness.

Or maybe I’m just crazy. You can decide for yourself. It’s Dave, right?

  • I love analytics. Its called math and science. It’s called the use of numbers to predict, to help you formulate a plan.
  • You’re of the generation where you have to rank everything. Don’t rank, rate or compare. Just enjoy.
  • Players make plays. Plays don’t make players.
  • You keep giving me this nonsense about these power teams from the East. C’mon. Are you old enough to remember last year’s Tournament? When they just gave Villanova and Virgina No. 1 seeds?
  • You have to feed the post better than that. If you can’t get the ball to the biggest guy on the court, you just don’t want too.
  • You have not taught until they have learned.
  • Chemistry is more important than talent because you have to assume that talent will equalize at the highest levels. When the ball moves and you know you are going to get it, than better things happen.
