It seems like just yesterday Greg Anthony was arrested in a prostitution sting, but it was actually January. If you remember, not only was he arrested but he was suspended by both CBS and Turner Sports, not to mention any penalties he received from the beautiful Mrs. Greg Anthony.

The blow to his reputation seemed insurmountable….at the time.

ANTHONY GOT THE CHARGES DROPPED

How? Easy, he’s a millionaire. He hired a good lawyer and received 32 hours of community service and was told to stay out of trouble for four months. It’s called a deferred prosecution agreement. Basically the prosecution agrees to grant amnesty if the defendant does certain things, like community service.

BACK TO WORK

We are a culture of 2nd chances and it looks like Turner sports is giving Anthony just that. Turner Sports has allowed Anthony to call the NBA summer league games in Orlando which started today.

A class act, Anthony thanked the TSN and the NBA,

I’d like to thank my family for their continued support. I’m looking forward to returning to my role as a basketball analyst and I’m grateful to Turner Sports and the NBA for this opportunity
His first appearance was today, at 9 a.m. ET for the Heat-Pacers game.

Turner sports did not indicate if there is a long term Anthony contract in place or not.

WHY NOT…WHAT ARE THE CONCERNS…

That’s the first question that comes to mind. It’s not as if they need to see if Greg can do the job, it’s more complicated than that and I suspect it will have to do with advertisers reactions as they see how fans react to Greg behind the microphone. It will be a cascading effect. The producers of the broadcast feel they need Anthony to put on a good show, they need to put on a good show to drive ratings so they can sell advertising space and consumers need to react positively to the ads being shown and the brands behind them.

A longer term renewed contract for Anthony will depend largely on any complaints that advertisers have from consumers who don’t like seeing their favorite brands, sponsoring a television program that involves an alleged adulterer and prostitute solicitor. So what the executives have to weigh is, does Anthony bring enough value to the broadcast to outweigh any negative value he brings to the advertisers. If this was a cooking show I would have my doubts, but this is basketball, and I think in this male dominated sport infidelity, and prostitution will get overlooked for colorful commentary and insightful perspective on the game which Anthony provides in abundance. Quite frankly who are we to judge how this man lives his life, we just want to enjoy our sports (and judge a little bit). Good to see Greg Anthony back lets just hope he stays off “Backpage“

    I usually don't entertain Lames, but it's 5 A.M. & I'm smoking.

    Where's the gossip? Is it not a known fact that Greg Anthony was arrested for soliciting Garden Tools? Isn't it also a known fact that TNT & NBATV relieved Anthony from their Networks while his legal matters were resolved?

    What I got from the article was that he got his Jobs back

    Why do you care about another man's personal life bruh? How does that affect your life in any way? Shouldn't Greg Anthony, his family, and his employers be left to deal with the consequences of his actions on their own? I mean they're grown ups right? Muhfuckas wanna overreact and act like Greg Anthony is some damn repeat offender like Warren Sapp 🤬 is. Greg Anthony had done completely faded to black after he caught that charge and we ain't hear 🤬 from the 🤬 since, now muhfuckas in this lame ass media wanna bring his name back up since he's returning to TV from a indefinite suspension like the 🤬 don't deserve the opportunity? Foh with that 🤬 .

    Much ado about nothing if you ask me.
