TNT NBA Announcing Crew Should Really be Called the All Star Controversy Crew
Reggie Miller was on the news recently because rumors surfaced that he is having a relationship with a woman who is about to be married. According to Sports By Brooks, Reggie has been sending out texts to her late at night and the fashion designer Ali Kay has been responding to those text via photos of her posing on her bed. A restraining order against Miller is about to be filed by the Groom to be if Miller doesn’t stop.
This story got me thinking about the entire NBA TNT crew. Is one of the requirement to get hired a criminal / controversial background?
Charles Barkley – Habitual gambler and alcoholic. Convicted of drunk driving because he was in a hurry to get oral sex from a woman.
Best Quote: [on gambling] “It’s not a problem. If you’re a drug addict or an alcoholic, those are problems. I gamble for too much money. As long as I can continue to do it I don’t think it’s a problem. Do I think it’s a bad habit? Yes, I think it’s a bad habit. Am I going to continue to do it? Yes, I’m going to continue to do it.”
Reggie Miller – Above story describes Miller as a stalker and a candidate for a restraining order.
Only claim to fame after retirement: This stupid tatoo
Chris Webber – First getting paid at Michigan, then subsequent weed arrests at every corner.
Best stupid quote: “I definitely need the ball in my hands to shoot it, or to make decisions or to pass”
Marv Albert – Back in 1997, woman accused Albert of sodomizing her. He makes Charles Barkley look “soft”
Possible gay reference: “[Player] has tasty back-meat!”
Who’s going to be the next one involved in some criminal / controversial activity? My bet is on Craig Sager
Who’s going to be the next announcer they hire? My bet is on Antoine Walker (They love gambling addicts)
