Basketball Hall of Famer and ESPN college basketball analyst, Bill Walton, is feeling the eSports fever. Back at E3 this year, we saw him enter the Street Fighter 5 "Editor's Only" tournament in which only media personnel were permitted to compete.

Over the weekend, Walton joined the crowds at EVO 2016 in Las Vegas, and based on this recent video from ESPN SportsCenter, it looks as though he had the time of his life.

Walton explains why it is that, at the age of 63, he's found a new love in competitive fighters. "My future is the business of sport," Walton begins. "And this is what the business of sport is all about for all of our futures."

He goes on to describe the passion and emotion he experienced from watching some of the world's greatest champions compete, as well as the roar of the audience showing their support.
