Bill Walton had dinosaurs on his mind while calling Pac-12 game

Thursday February 25th, 2016

Bill Walton and Dave Pasch called the Arizona-Colorado game for ESPN on Wednesday night, and the always-entertaining basketball legend did not disappoint, somehow driving a conversation from a play by George King into a talk about dinosaurs and history.

Walton had the prehistoric beasts on his mind as he had spent the morning visiting the Natural History Museum on Colorado’s campus.

The talk of dinosaurs and the vast history of Earth was also likely a playful jab at his announcing partner Pasch, who revealed during a broadcast last year that he does not believe in evolution.
