Slam Online: Whitaker: My Night Announcing an NBA Game

Lang Whitaker spent last night alongside Steve Holman in Miami and confirmed that broadcasting a game is hard:
Announcing an NBA game is frigging hard. I mean, it’s really, really hard. Especially considering I came into it without having done any research, didn’t bring any notes, etc. Sitting on the couch and chiming in, I can do that the rest of my life (and I will do that the rest of my life). But having that open mic in front of your mouth and knowing anything you say is about to be transmitted out to thousands of listeners, it’s really, really hard.

Yeah I'm sure announcing any live sporting event would be a real challenge until you got used to it. Would be even tougher to do with no research...
