Bill Walton is one of the most interesting men on earth, or on any planet, for that matter. Men would say Mars. Women would say Venus. And for his next act, the Hall of Fame center/broadcast provocateur is dusting off his microphone, easing into his car and heading toward Sacramento.

For those who keep track of Walton comebacks, this is probably his zillionth, and quite possibly, his most important.

Walton, who retired from broadcasting two years ago because of debilitating back pain, and who weeks ago revealed that he contemplated suicide at one point because of unrelenting discomfort, says he is "climbing back into the game of life."

Fifteen months after undergoing innovative spinal surgery, he can stand again. He can sit again. He can sleep again. He can travel again. He always talked a great game, and so the next step, this next giant stride, transports him into the Kings' broadcast booth on a limited basis.

The plan is to start slowly, to stay on his feet. Initially, he will work Kings broadcasts in Los Angeles and provide commentary while watching other games at a television studio near his home in San Diego.



Alas, he is only doing Kings games. Hopefully soon that leads to national broadcasts as his health permits. He can take Reggie Miller's spot.

Hope his recovery is going well but I never cared for his broadcasting. Not to take up for Reggie's or anything.
