When Bill Threw Down a Monster Dunk

In the wake of his passing on Monday, Bill Walton’s basketball exploits have been extolled far and wide. But check out the UCLA and NBA great last year throwing down on San Diego mayor Todd Gloria, “a liar and a fraud” and the “worst mayor” in the city’s history. What Bill had to say about San Diego may apply in your city, your state, or the entire country.

This video is 27 minutes long, but offers evidence that even an old hippie can acquire common sense with age. Walton supported a police officer and ex-Marine (Larry Turner) in a challenge in the fall election to the left-leaning incumbent. That would be a monster dunk everyone will cheer for.
