NBA legend Bill Walton criticized San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria for the city's record-high number of homeless people. Walton has publicly expressed his dissatisfaction with the mayor on social media due to the lack of response he has received after sending numerous emails.

Walton was recently assaulted by the homeless while he rode his bike in San Diego.

"Once again, while peacefully riding my bike early this Sunday morning in Balboa Park, I was threatened, chased, and assaulted by the homeless population, in our park," Walton wrote on Aug. 28.
"Sadly, and with a broken heart, I can no longer say that my hometown of San Diego, is the greatest place in the world," Walton wrote on Sept. 19. "I can no longer say that SD is a safe, healthy, clean, and beautiful place. I can no longer urge my family, friends, tourists, and businesses to come to SD to live, work, and play."
