Bill Walton has a teepee in his backyard

Wednesday November 19th, 2014

If you've ever heard legendary NBA player and basketball personality Bill Walton call a game, you've been blessed by his "eccentric" way of thinking.

Walton has become known for his over-the-top phrasing on certain plays, his trademark gruff voice and one-of-a-kind delivery, as well as a general disregard for what others think of him. That was just the case on Tuesday, when ESPN broadcast partner Dave Pasch revealed a bit of insight into Walton's "home".

Yes, that is a teepee that apparently occupies Bill Walton's backyard. Fellow ESPN colleagues shared a few more glimpses as well.

Later in the day, Walton revealed that he had never taken an indoor shower in his own home.

Bill Walton is a national treasure and he should be treated as such. At this point, any game that features his musings should be considered "appointment" television.
