Before Bill Walton became a broadcaster, and before he was the 1st overall pick in the 1974 NBA draft, Bill played college ball, quite successfully. He was a part of two national championships in 1972 and 1973 playing for UCLA. Bill was also a part of UCLAs 88 game winning streak which spanned nearly three seasons. Some regard him as the best player to ever step on the court at the college level. After college came the NBA, where Bill was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers. During a 14 year career, Bill racked up 2 NBA Championships, and an NBA Finals MVP Award. He was a 2 time All-Star, and was the NBA rebounding and blocks leader in 1977. Not only was Bills number 32 retired by the Portland Trail Blazers, but is was also retired at his alma mater UCLA. Following his retirement Bill went into broadcasting. After 19 years as a commentator Bill left ESPN in 2009, but would later return to call Pac-12 basketball games.
