Broadcasting at the Olympics and being a part of the festivities is a privilege few get to experience. Former NBA/ABA player and Portland Trail Blazers broadcaster Steve "Snapper" Jones has had the fortunate experience of calling Olympic basketball games.
Snapper joined the Bald Faced Truth with John Canzano to talk about his career, both playing and in broadcasting and give his take on the NBA playoffs.
Snapper and Canzano break down the NBA Eastern Conference finals in which Snapper feels the Celtics need to show more consistency scoring if they are to beat the Heat. They also break down the NBA Western Conference finals between the Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs. Snapper talked about having the experience of broadcasting Olympic basketball in Barcelona for the "Dream Team." Canzano asked Snapper about his future in broadcasting and what his plans are.
