2/14/17 – Doug Christie won’t offend anyone
Yesterday we touched upon former NBA star #6 BEIR Bill Walton, now a sports television commentator known for his frank words and candid opinions. But, what happens when you take a #1O BCAR and put a microphone in front of him? Usually, nothing much.
That is, nothing too controversial. Does anyone remember #10 Doug Christie, former Laker and King’s player? He’s now a co-host of KHTK’s late afternoon show with Grant Napear. In the booth, Christie says he walks a fine line. “I don’t want to throw players under the bus because I know they’re not trying to do things incorrectly. This is a game of mistakes and it happens, but the same time, I try to be as truthful as possible. Do I love the Kings? I do, but sometimes I think you need to be honest because of that love.”
The dominant Animate Christie says he hasn’t had a single player approach him yet who was upset with his commentary. To many, that means you’re doing something wrong, but Christie insists if someone wants to talk to him he’s ready and open. “Hey, we’re talking basketball. I love to talk basketball. I try not to make it personal; it’s just an evaluation based on what I’m seeing.”
We think it’s safe to say a few people have likely approached Mr. Walton during his career in media. “I don’t sleep much,” says Walton. “I’m on the go. My mind is racing. My wife says my mind is like the rolling dials on a slot machine. So, yeah, I think about everything.” Leave it to the dominant Inanimate!
