In the top frame, that’s ESPN analyst Bill Walton with his arms extended and a huge smile while sitting at the broadcast table, once he sees Drew come his way after the game.
A Bruin love fest? Not so much during the game. If you missed any of Walton’s running commentary mostly unflattering toward the home team, included was this gem: “This isn’t Seattle. This is Los Angeles. … The best and the brightest of our young people. It’s 49-43 with five minutes to go?”
Later: “Where’s the style, the electricity of the UCLA Bruins? We’re in Los Angeles, the entertainment mecca of the world, a one point game, and the crowd just sitting in their seats.”
Earler: “Arizona is at home watching this and saying to themselves: ‘We lost to this (UCLA) team?’”
