Bill Walton on the Taste of Foot
It’s nearing halftime of the United States/Uruguay game, and the US is running Uruguay off the court. Lebron James just made a spectacular dunk on a Uruguayan player, and John Saunders says “Uh oh” as Lebron comes to dunk on the guy. A few seconds later, Saunders expresses that his statement, “Uh oh” must be what the Uruguyan players are feeling, and then that leads to Bill Walton making the greatest segue ever, “And that is what the good people of New Orleans were saying two years ago today when Katrina first hit their shores.”
Saunders seems a bit stunned, and then says something like, “I hope things go better this time around,” and Walton quickly agrees, too, and they move on.
I know Walton was trying to actually be NICE and just throw a shout out to the victims of Katrina, but WOW.
