I recently needed to provide some more current basketball play-by-play material for consideration, so I sent them the demos I did while working for the NBA’s OKC Thunder a few summers ago. As you may know, I had the honor and privilege of working as full-time TV sideline reporter for the NBA team after they moved from Seattle. Following that first season, Thunder brass was cool enough to set me up at the NBA Summer League Presented by EA Sports in Las Vegas to put together some radio material for my archives. If you’re interested, you can click on the photo below or check the stuff out here. There are many more sports clips of mine on youtube.com/actionfigurestv
It’s kind of fun, actually, to think it was just a few years ago that James Harden was a rookie, trying to fit in with the franchise. And how about Serge Ibaka? Wild, at times out of control, and in the summer games, he definitely used all the fouls they would give him. (Fouls are unlimited in those games.) They turned out to be pretty good players, didn’t they?
What of most of those other guys? It is so tough to make it in The Association, whether you are a broadcaster or a player.
