Bill Walton not only won back-to-back titles with UCLA in 1972-73, but he also was named Most Outstanding Player in both title runs. After a successful NBA career that saw two titles in 13 years, Walton retired. He spent another 19 years as a broadcaster before retiring in November 2009, although he later returned as a part-time commentator for the Sacramento Kings and the Boston Celtics. He also returned as a game analyst for Pac-12 basketball coverage on ESPN and the Pac-12 Network starting with the 2012-13 season.
