Walton vs. UCLA: Thursday and Saturday, ESPN2, set the DVR

If ESPN has no problem continuing to assign Bill Walton to its UCLA-related games, we have none either.

The former Bruins All-American, who has taken every opportunity to criticize coach Ben Howland, the team’s offensive play, the team’s defensive play, and the team’s home fans, will be on the UCLA game at Cal on Thursday (6 p.m., ESPN2). Then he jogs over to do UCLA’s game at Stanford on Saturday (1 p.m., ESPN2).

Dave Pasch is the play-by-play man asked to show the patience of Job while on this job.

Don’t just take our word for it. Walton’s “Good Day To Pound Hard Tour” has been going strong for weeks:

    Bonespur Bill has been doing this style of commentary since his Clippers days in 1995-96. He brings a lot to the telecast. I learn something about basketball and/or life listening to him. I have worked with him multiple times and he is a gentleman.
