Bill Walton Bio

Bill Walton Net Worth and Salary: Bill Walton is an American retired professional basketball player and television sportscaster who has a net worth of $20 million. After establishing his reputation as a skilled basketball player during his college years with the UCLA Bruins, Walton later went on to join the Portland Trail Blazers in the 70s. In 1977, he won the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award – the same year that the Trail Blazers won the NBA Championship. Another title came in 1986, this time with the Boston Celtics.

After retiring, Walton was celebrated for overcoming his notable stuttering problem and becoming a sportscaster. Bill established himself as a popular color commentator, mostly for ESPN.

While Bill reached unbelievable heights during his time in the NBA, he also struggled continuously with injuries – mostly involving his feet. Although Walton had to sit out a number of seasons due to these issues, he eventually bounced back with the Celtics and won another NBA title.

Early Life: William Theodore Walton III was born on November 5th of 1952 in La Mesa, California. Raised alongside four siblings, Walton took music lessons as a child. He later gravitated more towards sports, following in the footsteps of his older brother, Bruce. Bill began his basketball journey in elementary school. The sport represented a welcome escape for him, as he struggled with a stutter and was extremely shy.

In high school, Bruce and Bill played together and formed a strong partnership. While Bill showed tremendous potential during these early years, his tendency to become injured also surfaced. Just in his high school years, Walton suffered several broken bones and underwent knee surgery. A massive growth spurt during his sophomore year made it difficult for the young player to get used to his body.

NBA Career: In 1974, the Portland Trail Blazers selected Walton as the number-one overall pick during the 1974 NBA Draft. Despite being a hot prospect, Bill’s first two seasons were disappointing. Chronic foot injuries held him back, and he broke a number of bones. Still, Walton performed well as a rookie within his first two years. Genuine glory came in the 1976-77 season.

After graduating from high school, Bill attended UCLA on a basketball scholarship, despite offers from many other schools. In 1973, Walton took part in what has been called the best NCAA Championship game he ever played. The UCLA Bruins faced off against Memphis State, with Walton scoring 44 points out of 22 attempts. His record for most points in an NCAA Championship game still stands in 2020.

By the end of that season, Walton and the Trail Blazers had reached the NBA Finals. Facing off against the Philadelphia 76ers, the Blazers won the final four games to claim the championship. Bill was named the Most Valuable Player of the finals, and scored 20 points with 23 rebounds in the Game 6 victory.

That year, Jack Ramsay became the new head coach and led the Trail Blazers on an unexpected path to unheard of victory. No one expected Portland to do well, but Walton and the rest of the team proved their potential. Bill led the lead in rebounds per game and shots blocked per game. He was selected to participate in the NBA All-Star Game, but an injury prevented him from doing so.
