Former ESPN color commentator Bill Walton will work a handful of Boston Celtics games this season for Comcast SportsNet.
Working alongside play-by-play stud Mike Gorman, Walton will join the Celtics on their two West Coast trips in early 2011 and provide color analysis on the following telecasts:
Boston @ Portland: January 27
Boston @ Phoenix: January 28
Boston @ Golden State: February 22
Boston @ LA Clippers: February 26
With the Celtics interior presence, you know Walton will have at least a few “Throw it down, big man!” lines per night.
Walton’s recent back operations have kept him off the air, so this is a promising sign for his health and maybe a return to the national scene in the near future.
