Eric Snow will leave his gig with NBA TV and slide into the Sixers' booth right next to Marc Zumoff. Usually, I wouldn't write a post about the new color commentator for the Sixers, but in this case, I believe the news actually broke in our comment section earlier today and was confirmed shortly thereafter by Tom Moore. So kudos to Rich for the scoop.
I'm pretty indifferent on the decision. Snow never blew me away with his studio work for NBA TV, but he doesn't exactly have big shoes to fill. I hope he takes a deeper look at the game than most former-player/analysts do. That would be a good start.
Pinckney left the booth to accept an assistant coach position with the Bulls over the summer.
