If you are a college basketball fan, you probably know Bill Walton for his bizarre and whacky antics when he is announcing your team’s game.

Regardless of what your feelings are toward him, the man deserves to do his job in comfort.

He was presented with a custom chair to call the game on Saturday at the McKale Center.

The chair was designed by Arizona art student Gabi Walter and included all of Walton’s favorite things.

As Pac-12 fans know, he loves cacti, basketball, the sun, flowers, the desert and the Grateful Dead. The yellow chair depicts different forms of cacti, trees and also gives off an orangish-yellow glow.

Walton, a national treasure on the college basketball stage, wants everyone to know whose chair it is on the sideline.

He labeled the back “Billy’s chair,” just in case there was any confusion on who should sit in it.

Never change, “Billy,” never change.

Arizona tipped off against Washington State from Tucson at 3:00 p.m.
