Bill Walton continues to play chess while we play Candy Land.

Walton, the legendary NBA big man turned elite basketball commentator and observer, was in attendance Saturday for Game 3 of the second-round playoff series between the Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies. He showed up at head coach Steve Kerr’s pregame press conference and asked the funniest question.

“How can you get Steph Curry more half-court shots?” asked Walton, by Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Bay Area.

“Steph? I totally agree,” Kerr replied hilariously.

Walton must not have been too convinced by Kerr’s answer. TV cameras then caught Walton talking to Curry himself before the game in what was likely a second effort to get more 45ft missiles out of Curry.

Walton, 69, is not like your traditional old head who hates the three-point shot and prefers the traditional return-to-the-basket game of the esteemed George Mikan. No, on the contrary, Walton thinks that all the triples that are taken these days are not coming far enough.

In the end, there’s nothing better than when Walton heads north to catch a Warriors game. As we’ve seen time and time again, literally anything can happen when Big Red is in town.
