James Worthy and Bill Walton appear on 'The Price Is Right'

February 12, 2010 | 10:00 am

After collecting three NBA championships during the Showtime Era, former Lakers great James Worthy demonstrates his big game with sharp analysis on KCAL-9's Lakers post-game shows. Former UCLA great Bill Walton followed somewhat of a similar path. Years after winning two championships, one with Portland and one with Boston, he's also provided -- what should we say -- interesting comments over the years as a commentator and studio analyst.

The two appeared Thursday on CBS' "The Price Is Right," and though the video below doesn't reveal the ending, I'll play the spoiler. A basketball hoop, NBA jerseys, a sports boat and a three-night stay and round-trip fare to Dallas for the NBA All-Star game was estimated a little too high.
