Bill Walton Rumors

All NBA Players
Ainge is doing his best to keep up. He said his illness didn’t hinder preparations for the June 20 draft, when the Celtics have four picks, including Nos. 14, 20 and 22 in the first round. They will have worked out nearly 100 players “of all shapes and sizes.” And he’s trying to follow doctors’ orders. Ainge said he was told to exercise more and lose weight. He also needs to improve his diet, but he won’t be looking to former teammate – and noted marijuana enthusiast – Bill Walton for recipes. “I’m eating more plants,” he said. “Not the kind of plants in Walton’s garden, by the way.”
