R.I.P. Neal Walk. One of the first @Suns I remember watching as a little boy. Under appreciated but such a solid big man #PhoenixSuns #NBA— Roger Pamachena (@rogerrocket480) October 5, 2015
Plenty of Florida Gators fans also posted to celebrate his career, as Walk attended UF before being drafted to Phoenix in 1969.
