ABSTRACT
Now that he is no longer on the court, Walt 'Bells' Bellamy can no longer be accused of going half speed. Since retiring in 1975 after a 14-year National Basketball Association (NBA) career and settling in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife and son, Bellamy has chaired the affirmative action committee for the Georgia Democratic Party, organized for the AFL-CIO and acted as a delegate to four Democratic national conventions. In 1977 Bellamy even got his foot in the door of the Georgia Senate by keeping others' feet out; he was elected doorkeeper there and served for four years. These days Bellamy is on the board of the Southwest Family Branch YMCA, where he is heavily involved in fund-raising. At a lean 278 pounds, Bellamy swims regularly but rarely plays basketball.
