Olympics Basketball 2012: Collins’ Summer Vacation


 

Collins returns for color commentary in London after working in 2008 in Beijing.

After spending a week in Orlando scouting his young talent, Doug Collins will spend some time abroad at the Summer Olympics. Collins puts the headphones on again and will be the color analyst for the mens basketball coverage in London. He served as the color analyst in 2008 in Beijing and had been doing color for TNT since 2003 prior to being hired by the Sixers. Collins was a member of the controversial 1972 U.S. team that was awarded the silver medal after losing to the Soviet Union, due to some poor officiating. That team has still not accepted their silver medals. Along with watching all the world’s best players, Collins will get to keep a close eye on his player Andre Iguodala. Doug brings an outstanding view of the game due to his playing and coaching experience and adds analysis but does not take attention away from the players on the court.
