NBA Legend Bill Walton is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the 2017 RCI Convention and Trade Show that’s happening on March 16-21 in Anaheim, CA at the Anaheim Hilton and the Anaheim Convention Center. Walton will be delivering his speech during the middle of the convention on March 18th and will speak from approximately 1:30 p.m. to 3:15 pm. He is expected to give lots of words of motivation as well as share some of his more memorable and challenging stories from life in the NBA.
The La Mesa, California native was an immediate athletic star that even made it to the United States Men’s National team at the young age of 17, and also became a familiar face while he played for the University of California Los Angeles between the years of 1971-1974. He entered the 1974 NBA Draft and was selected as the first overall pick by the Portland Trail Blazers, with whom he played with for four years. He then went back to his home state of California and joined the San Diego/ Los Angeles Clippers from 1979 through 1985 before going to Boston to play for the Celtics for the last two years of his professional playing career. The two-time NBA champion also worked as a color commentator for NBC for 12 years after his retirement, where he was an exciting and controversial television sports personality.
Walton will be the keynote speaker for the 2017 RCi Convention that is going to happen next spring in Anaheim, California between March 16-21. It’s going to be a full house, so make sure to plan ahead to be there if you will be in the local area.
