TNT Analyst Next In Line For Indiana Pacers Gig?

TNT NBA analyst Reggie Miller appears to be next in line for the role as president of the Indiana Pacers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Larry Bird has said that he would step down after one more season in the Pacers’ front office. Miller has been with TNT since he announced his retirement in 2005.

Wojnarowski also mentioned a scenario (which would make more sense) where Donnie Walsh would come in and assist Miller.

Commentating about basketball for a living is one thing, running an NBA team is another.

Ratings Down 14 Percent for PGA Championship

Sunday’s final round of the PGA Championship on CBS drew a 4.3 overnight rating, a 14 percent drop over last year. Translation: The golf season’s final major tournament was seen in an average of 4.3 percent of U.S. homes in the top 56 markets.

Not surprisingly, CBS’ ratings peaked at 6.6 between 7:30 and 8:00 p.m. ET, when Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner were engaged in a three-hole playoff. Bradley won by one shot to earn his first major title.

The absence of big-name players on Sunday’s leader board no doubt affected the ratings, as Tiger Woods missed the cut and Phil Mickelson tied for 19th.

Bradley, who was 108th in the Official World Golf Ranking heading into the tournament, became the first player since Francis Ouimet in 1913 to win his major- tournament debut in the U.S. Following the win, Bradley rose to 29th in the world rankings.

Elton Brand Producing Tupac Biopic

Sixers forward Elton Brand has signed on as a co-producer of Tupac, the upcoming biopic about slain West Coast rapper/poet/actor Tupac Shakur. The movie, which is currently in production, is being directed by Antoine Fuqua, director of Training Day. The role of Tupac has not yet been cast.

As noted by Philly.com, this isn’t Brand’s first foray into Hollywood. The former Clipper co-founded a production company when he played in Los Angeles, and according to a 2006 report from the Los Angeles Times, the company was slapped with four separate lawsuits in a year. Though none alleged any wrongdoing by Brand specifically, the report also claimed Brand spent $250,000 of his own money to settle one lawsuit.
