2. Bill Walton
Years in the Booth: 1990-Present
Networks: NBC, ESPN, Comcast SportsNet California
Few people on Earth can articulate points quite like Bill Walton. Whether it be a reference to the Grateful Dead or his patented "Throw it down, big man. Throw it down!" for guys like Shaq and Tim Duncan. Walton delighted us for years as the color man on NBC and ESPN. For the last couple of years, Bill's been commentating on Sacramento Kings games and has joined ESPN once again to call Pac-12 games during the 2012-2013 season. And to think, he actually had a sever speech impediment growing up. Props for comparing Boris Diaw to Beethoven and the Age of the Romantics.
