Curry paid his respects to the NBA legend on his Instagram Story. He shared a caption on a picture showing both of them.

RIP to a legend on and off the court. You might hear it all the time, but he Always brought the BEST energy and humanity to every room he walked into. True definition of living his values, always with a smile! Prayers to the entire Walton family.”

Other current and former NBA Players reacted to Walton’s passing via their social media accounts.

Magic Johnson posted, “Rest in peace to a friend, 2X NBA Champion, Hall of Famer, and one of the most skilled centers we’ve ever seen Bill Walton!” Johnson said. “His NCAA Championship performance as a UCLA Bruin against Memphis is by far the most dominate (dominant) NCAA Championship performance ever – he shot 21 for 22 and had us all mesmerized! That’s when I first fell in love with his basketball game.”


Julius Irving posted, “I am sad today hearing that my comrade & one of the sports worlds most beloved champions & characters has passed,” Erving tweeted. “Bill Walton enjoyed life in every way. To compete against him & to work with him was a blessing in my life. Sorry for your loss Walton family. We’ll miss him too. Doc.”

Metta World Peace posted, “We will miss Bill..Pull up his prime highlights,” World Peace said. “Would’ve totally played well in any era. Sneaker technology kept him from showing everything. But his prime run was up there with best.”

Walton’s talent and commitment on the court allowed him to become one of the greatest players in collegiate history and a multi-time NBA champion. Upon retirement, he made his mark as a broadcaster known for his electric personality and charisma when speaking about the game of basketball.

During the 1977-78 NBA season, he won MVP. In 1985-86, he was honored as the league’s sixth man of the year and was selected for the 50th and 75th anniversary NBA teams. Before that, he shone at UCLA under coach John Wooden, winning the national player of the year award three times.

Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1993, Walton is a revered figure in basketball. Despite foot injuries limiting his NBA career to 468 games across the Trail Blazers, the Clippers, and the Celtics, he maintained averages of 13.3 points and 10.5 rebounds, although failing to set records.

Success came in his second media career. Walton worked on college and NBA game broadcasts for CBS, NBC, and ABC/ESPN. He also analyzed games for the Clippers and Sacramento Kings. Walton went on to cover six NBA Finals for NBC and served as the color commentator in NBA 2K5. Walton, an Emmy winner, was later recognized as one of the top 50 sports broadcasters of all time by the American Sportscasters Association.
