    And we’re stuck with Drexler and Bullard :)

    But apparently Kustok turned him down ... so blonds still prefer Prokhorov.



    From LA Times

    Billups, 43, will be part of a new-look Clippers broadcast team. Sieman has been the Clippers’ radio voice since 2007 but now steps into the television play-by-play role for the first time, succeeding Ralph Lawler, the team’s voice for 40 years. Lawler will be inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in September as a recipient of the 2019 Curt Gowdy Media Award.​

    Billups did not indicate how many games he will call. The New York Post reported Friday that he would will also continue to call games for ESPN, whose NBA coverage he has contributed to since 2014. According to people with knowledge of plans for next season’s broadcasts, there is a strong possibility that the analyst role on Clippers broadcasts will rotate among a handful of people, including Billups. That would be similar to how the role was filled last season.​

    If I'm remembering correctly then, he's gone from potential NBA GM (was at least a candidate for one job), to a local team analyst.

    I mean I guess he's good to do whatever he wants, but seems weird.

    Reads like he's keeping his ESPN analyst job. So he's filling his plate.

    Should be alright, he seems to be rather quiet and reserved which is always best for a former player. Steve Smith / Grant Hill type I reckon, could be boring though.

    Chauncey, Lue, Patrick Patterson. Ballmer gets all the premium free agents that Tilman cannot afford.
