Bill Walton took the Orange Line to Celtics-Warriors Game 3


“They don’t rock anymore.”

NBA legend Bill Walton mingled with Bostonians Wednesday night on his way to Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors.

Walton was videotaped on his way to the game on the MBTA’s Orange Line. In the clip, Walton can be seen wearing a green t-shirt that reads “NBA Finals” and “Celtics.”

“Celtics, let’s go,” says the 6ft 11in tall Walton as he ducks to board the train.

At this point, Walton’s eyes widen, and as he pats the roof of the train, the former Celtics, Clippers and Trail Blazers center says, “They’ve all new cars, man. They don’t rock anymore.”

Walton’s ability to notice what are actually new cars on the Orange Line did not go unnoticed by Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, who tweeted approvingly:

It wasn’t immediately apparent from the video where Walton boarded the train, but his likely destination was the Orange Line stop just below North Station, where TD Garden is also located.
