There is the pressure associated with being the son of a former NBA player. For Cole Anthony, that means following in Greg Anthony’s large footsteps. Cole faces the pressure of being hailed as the next great New York City prospect, a title that comes with plenty of potential pratfalls, and being ranked near the top of his class nationally. Pressure of being the first freshman to start at point guard from Day 1 at his high school, Archbishop Molloy in Queens, in more than three decades.
The backdrop for all this: On. Jan. 16, Anthony was arrested at a Washington D.C. hotel on suspicion of trying to hire a prostitute who was an undercover D.C. police officer. The Washington Post reported in February that Anthony reached a plea agreement in which he was required to perform 32 hours of community service and not get arrested for any other violations. If he adhered to those stipulations, prosecutors would then agree to dismiss the misdemeanor case. TMZ Sports reported the case was dismissed June 11, and a Turner Sports rep also said that all the aspects of Anthony’s deferred prosecution agreement had been fulfilled. Asked in January by SI.com how he viewed a possible return for Anthony, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said that he was sticking with the CBS Sports and Turner Sports statement at the time that Anthony had been suspended indefinitely.
Greg Anthony’s second act in sports broadcasting begins on Saturday. Turner Sports will use Anthony as an NBA TV game analyst for NBA Summer League play in Orlando from July 4-10. His first appearance will be Saturday at 9 a.m. ET for the Heat-Pacers game. Turner Sports would not elaborate on whether this meant Anthony is back in the fold for the longterm, but it is clearly an entrée to getting reps again as an NBA studio or game analyst.
With just over four minutes left, Notre Dame guard Pat Connaughton caught a pass near the top of the key as his defender slipped. Connaughton then took two hard dribbles to his right and threw down a violent one-handed dunk over Blue Devils star Jabari Parker, the eventual No. 2 pick of the NBA Draft. The immediate reaction was more of surprise than admiration. “This is what I love about college basketball, folks,” color commentator Greg Anthony told the CBS audience. “You don’t have to have the most talent.” A few moments later, a referee walked over to Connaughton during a break. “I had no idea you could do that,” the official told him.
