Bill Walton: “I’m a stutterer. I never spoke to anybody. I lived most of my life by myself. But as soon as I got on the court I was fine. But in life, being so self conscious, red hair, big nose, freckles and goofy, nerdy looking face and can’t talk at all. I was incredibly shy and never said a word. Then, when I was 28 I learned how to speak. It’s become my greatest accomplishment of my life and everybody else’s biggest nightmare.”
Lucas gave a young Luke Walton what he called a “bad-ass poster” of himself inscribed with this message: “To Little Luke: To make it in this world, you have to be tough.” Underneath the message, Lucas inscribed his name as “Big Luke.” “Whenever there was a big moment for little Luke,” Bill Walton said, “big Luke would show up unannounced to make sure it all turned out right.” Luke Walton kept Lucas’ poster in his room while growing up in San Diego before heading to the University of Arizona in 1999.
