Bill Walton RumorsAll NBA Players
Mike Trudell: Bill Walton asked Kerr about the Warriors mindset, and Kerr quipped that he couldn’t answer a question from “the enemy” given Walton is wearing a Lakers polo. Bill: “I’m a very proud dad.” Kerr: “You should be.”
So on Oct. 25, as Jokic was warming up ahead of Denver’s matchup with the Lakers, Walton ambled onto the court to greet the 23-year-old franchise star and ask him for a photo. “It’s been one of the joys, one of the great and positive happenings in my life, to now look forward to him playing each and every game,” Walton said. “I tried to convey that when I met him this past October. When we were able to work that game into our schedule, I was just thrilled with the opportunity to watch him play in person.”
Tania Ganguli: Sounds like Luke Walton heard supportive messages from other coaches around the league in the past few days. He said whether it comes from other coaches or his dad, the support feels nice. What did @Bill Walton tell him? “That he loves me and supports me no matter what.”
