NEW YORK, NY USA – (NBA)

Thursday January 19, 2023

The NBA today announced the launch of "Throw it Down with Bill Walton," an alternative game telecast hosted by NBA 50th and 75th Anniversary Team member and legendary broadcaster Bill Walton that will stream exclusively on NBA League Pass via the new NBA App. The first telecast will debut Monday, Jan. 23 for the San Antonio Spurs vs. Portland Trail Blazers game at 10 p.m. ET.

"This incredible dream is the thrill, honor and privilege of a lifetime. Wow, and on the NBA's global and intergalactic platform too!" said Walton. "I'm the luckiest guy in the world. Please help me throw it down as this volcanic eruption celebrates the best of life, nature, sport, the NBA and everything else. We promise to blast through the real, imaginary and self-imposed limits of the known universe and beyond. Won't you come with me. Hold on if you can. Hold on if you dare. THROW IT DOWN, exclusively on the NBA App, where dreams become reality, where we come to grow and where the deal goes down."

Walton - a two-time NBA champion, NBA MVP, Sixth Man of the Year, Finals MVP and acclaimed Emmy Award-winning broadcaster - will call the action for a series of NBA League Pass games as he surveys the brightest stars in today's game and flashes back to his remarkable life and career.

The show - featuring special guests from across sports, music, literature, business, entertainment and beyond - will stream on select Mondays with Jason Benetti serving as the play-by-play announcer. NBA legend Julius Erving and Nike co-founder and chairman emeritus Phil Knight are set to be the featured guests for the first telecast.

"Throw it Down with Bill Walton" joins a strong list of alternative game telecasts featured exclusively on the NBA App: "

NBA HooperVision - Former NBA players and hosts, including Quentin Richardson, Nate Robinson and Dorell Wright, share their unique insights on the game with a pop culture crossover.

" NBABet Stream - A weekly stream with a selection of top contributors who provide the latest betting information during live game coverage.

" NBA Strategy Stream - Fans can get deep analytics and Xs and Os through this insightful stream from Nate Duncan and Danny Leroux.

As previously announced, the new and improved NBA App is the all-in-one destination for NBA fans of every team. With entirely new personalization features, the NBA App provides wall-to-wall content from every NBA game and features social-style vertical video, unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to players and teams, new and existing shows and series, and access to the NBA vault for free. The NBA App - a product of NBA Digital, the league's joint venture with Warner Bros. Discovery Sports - is free to download
