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 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.

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.

Basketball analyst Greg Anthony will have a soliciting prostitution charge dropped if he does 32 hours of community service and stays out of trouble for four months. Anthony, his attorney and a prosecutor told a D.C. Superior Court judge Wednesday that they had agreed to the deal, called a deferred prosecution agreement, which is common in low-level misdemeanor cases in the city. Anthony, 47, will be allowed to complete the community service hours in Florida, where he lives.

Former NBA player turned CBS sports commentator Greg Anthony agreed to pay a D.C. police officer who was working undercover as a prostitute $80 for sex and said “oh yeah” when the officer asked Anthony if Anthony wanted the officer to “dress up.” According to the charging documents submitted to D.C. Superior Court this past weekend in Anthony’s Jan. 16 arrest, D.C. undercover officers were responding to “complaints” about prostitution activity in the 1500 block of Rhode Island Avenue NW. Anthony was arrested at the Doubletree Hotel in room 805.

Pistons GM Joe Dumars made two important moves in the offseason — signing Josh Smith as a free agent and trading for point guard Brandon Jennings. The two players have had minimal impact on the Pistons thus far. “The big problem with those two guys is they’re not first-option scorers, but they have a first-option mentality,” NBA TV analyst Greg Anthony said. “They make more poor decisions with their shot selection than anything else. It’s a domino effect. When your teammates see you taking tough, ill-advised shots, it takes their energy and motivation from them.”

Anthony on Cousins: “From a talent standpoint and ability standpoint, DeMarcus Cousins doesn’t take a backseat to anybody at the center position in the NBA. The question is whether he’s going to mature to the point where he can take advantage of that ability. What separates the good guys from the great guys is their mental makeup. That’s going to be the challenge for DeMarcus, and I would suspect DeMarcus would tell you that himself. That’s where his real growth is going to come. It’s not from his basketball talent; it’s from his mental makeup. If he matures and becomes the pro his talent dictates, Sacramento is going to have an anchor on that frontline for years to come.”

Greg Anthony and Chris Webber offered their thoughts on those topics and more, and here is a taste of what they said: Webber on whether Thunder guard Russell Westbrook can return to form after a torn meniscus in his right knee, which has required two surgeries since last spring, the latest to reduce swelling: “Westbrook is one of the most athletic guys in the league and I think his age is his best asset right now. He didn’t have to go through microfracture [surgery]. We’ve seen people come back from these injuries so I expect him to be the same person or better basically because of his attitude. I really don’t think it will affect him that much.”

The proclamation was a perfect prelude. Prior to Kenneth Faried’s fourth double-double in six games — 21 points and 11 rebounds against the Portland Trail blazers on Tuesday — Greg Anthony said on NBA-TV that the Nuggets power forward should be an all-star reserve. “I think Faried has had an all-star caliber year,” Anthony said on air. “When you play with the passion and fire that he plays with, it wills his teammates to compete just as hard.”

On Friday, Miller admitted that he should have been called for a foul during the sequence and even issued an apology to Anthony, joking that the play was one of his basketball “sins.” “I’ve got to say here, in 1995, as you saw in the video, yeah, I pushed,” Miller said. “I’m sorry. The ref didn’t call it. I went with it. Like Magic [Johnson] says, ‘By any means necessary.’ So I apologize, Greg. I’ve never said that publicly. So, Greg, I shoved you and I kept you down.”
