Bill Walton has found a way to transition from being one of the great big men in basketball history to an equally popular commentator and bestselling author. He was able to share some of his tips for life recently at Lifespan's 22nd annual Celebration of Aging Luncheon.
The event took place in Rochester, New York on March 29. Walton talked about how to overcome challenges and take on anything that happens in life.
Walton talked about fighting through back injuries during his playing career. He also shared how he overcame a severe stutter early in his life.
Walton was a three-time Player of the Year and led UCLA to two national championships while in college. The Portland Trail Blazers made him the top pick in the 1974 NBA Draft.
Walton was an early star with the Blazers, leading them to the 1977 NBA title and being named MVP of the NBA Finals. The following season, he was selected to his second straight All-Star Game and won NBA MVP honors.
While much of Walton's pro career was hampered by injuries, he rebounded to be named NBA Sixth Man of the Year and a key part of the Boston Celtics team that won the 1986 championship. He is a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame and continues to be one of ESPN's top college basketball analysts.
