Ralph Lawler to be joined by Bill Walton on Clippers’ call
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ralph Lawler will be joined by Bill Walton when the 80-year-old broadcaster calls his final regular-season game for the Los Angeles Clippers on April 10.
Walton is a friend and former on-air partner of Lawler, who has been the television voice of the team for 40 years.
The Clippers will celebrate Lawler during halftime of their game against the Utah Jazz that night. A logo honoring Lawler on the Staples Center court will be unveiled and players will wear a special shooting shirt to thank him.
Fans will receive a Lawler bobblehead. The souvenir will recite some of his favorite expressions at the push of a button, including “Oh me, oh my.”
