It seems that former NBA player, turned analyst Greg Anthony has a long road ahead in terms of forgiving the people that he loves most.


CBS analyst and former NBA player Greg Anthony was arrested in Washington DC for soliciting a prostitute.

Anthony was arrested inside a room at a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in just before 6 p.m. Friday, according to a police report that was obtained by The Associated Press.

Anthony had been scheduled to announce the Michigan State-Maryland men’s basketball game on Saturday.


The report said that Anthony was suspected of using a computer as part of the crime and that his arrest was part of an undercover operation targeting prostitution.

Anthony was suspended indefinitely by CBS following his arrest.

“Greg Anthony will not be working again for CBS this season,” a CBS spokeswoman said.

Turner Sports also suspended the TV commentator and said it will have no further comment.

Anthony, 47, issued a statement Saturday apologizing to his wife, family and colleagues.

“I made a mistake,” he said. “With this lapse of judgment, I embarrassed many, including myself. I will work to regain the trust that I have lost, and the first step is saying that I am sorry.”

Metropolitan police Lt. Kelvin Cusick said Anthony was released from custody Friday evening. Police say he could face up to 90 days in jail if convicted.


Kendall Marshall went down on a drive to the basket in Thursday’s win over the New York Knicks in London and had to be helped off the court, he didn’t return to the game.

After an MRI, Marshall’s worst fears were confirmed: He has torn his ACL.

Via the Bucks release:

Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced today that guard Kendall Marshall will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee during the second period of the Bucks win vs. New York in London on Thursday, Jan. 15.

This morning Marshall underwent an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) exam that confirmed the injury after being evaluated by team orthopaedic physician Dr. Michael Gordon. Surgery to repair the injury will be scheduled at a date to be determined.

In 28 games this season, Marshall averaged 4.2 points, 3.1 assists (2nd on team) and 1.0 rebounds in 14.9 minutes per game while helping the Bucks to a 21-19 record. He connected on career-high percentages from the field (.455) and free throw line (.889) and posted a three-point field goal percentage of .391 (18-46).


Mainstream media said he had just given up playing, but Larry Sanders quickly put that fake story to bed. But now he’s fighting something much more real.

He’s quitting marijuana.

Via Yahoo! Sports:

Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders plans to use his 10-game suspension for violating the NBA’s anti-drug program to deal with his core personal issues and learn to live without marijuana use, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Sanders wants to continue his basketball career and has been coming to the realization league rules won’t permit that unless he stops testing positive as part of the league’s drug program, sources said.

Whether Sanders will play again in Milwaukee remains unclear. A new ownership group and new coach have found a measure of success without needing to depend on Sanders. The revitalized Bucks could seek to pursue a contract buyout with Sanders, but that’s a discussion that’s yet to take place with Sanders’ representatives.

At his best, Sanders has proven to be a dominant defensive player and an emerging offensive threat. Sanders has been marginally productive since signing a four-year, $44 million contract extension in 2013. Nevertheless, suspensions and injuries have derailed his career over the past two seasons with the Bucks.

Sanders had been suspended for the final five games of the 2013-14 season for a positive marijuana test. Under league rules, his next positive test and suspension called for the 10-game suspension without pay.


Russell Westbrook is notorious for being a hard person to interview, TB’s own John Hobbs knows this all too well from his encounters with him at the 2010 world championships and the London Olympics in 2012.

But even for Westbrook, this was low. But after recording a triple-double in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 127-115 win over the Golden State Warriors on Friday night, I guess he let his play on the court do ALL the talking.
