The Not So Green Mile: Boston's Buzzing over Walton's Return

Bill Walton's Final Months as a Boston Celtic
March 11, 1987

So how'd you like the 61 game exhibition season?

Now that Bill Walton is back, Phase II, the real season, can begin. He didn't contribute much to the cause last night -- if anything, he was a major impediment -- but at least people connected with the Celtics no longer must answer the question, "When is Bill Walton coming back?"

He's back.

The Celtics won. But is winning the key anymore?


The issue now is the nurturing of Bill Walton. Those first 61 games were nice, but what he does in these these last 20 will help determine whether or not the Celtics will have the kind of summer they like and not the kind where they have to keep saying, "Guess we'll have to do better next year."
