The Internet tells me he was a big time alcoholic and the liver damage he had after a month of eating McDonald's likely wasn't caused by eating McDonald's. But it made for a fun movie. Also, sexual misconduct, by his own admission.

As Kandinsky was able to express music through painting, Bill Walton expressed music through basketball.  Like synethesia where basketball is a means of musical expression and 5 players interact like a band on the same page. . .like the Grateful Dead (of course)

Injury-wrecked career but he was responsible for artistic peaks of the sport in the early 70s UCLA and 77 Blazers, and then he played a key role on the 86 Celtics.

And his distillation of old school John Wooden through counterculture psychedelic mindset is hugely significant.

Always loved this story

https://x.com/GratefulDead/status/1750943121888977275?s=19

Perfect story, perfectly told, with just the right amount of Waltonian details that probably didn’t happen but are better than the reality and 100% did happen in his mind.
