How is it different from your first NBA Finals in 2007?
Looking back, it really was [then Cleveland Cavaliers star] The first finalist was LeBron James. So, we entered this stage at the same time, which was a kind of cold.

In the end, I remember [former San Antonio Spurs star Tim] Duncan whispered to him, “Hey, you’re going to be a big player on this stage, welcome.” I feel like LeBron was there; I’ve been documenting LeBron for the last 15 years.

How would you describe your years of service in the NBA Finals?
The number one thing people have been doing for years. And partner with the league. It’s the best memory, the best feeling when it’s all together. This is my number one memory in general – the unity, the annual friendship of carrying this thing. Support my family too. . . I could not have done this without the support of my wife, Beth.

What I get is the opportunity to work with professionals who make my job easier. When you love what you do and they love what you do, it’s great. I still crave it. I go, but I’m passionate about it and don’t want it to go away all the time.

Something I’ve been proud of in my 15 years of work [working in the NBA bubble]. The bubble was priceless. Friendship and cooperation of men and women who are far from their family; we are one family and therefore more.

ESPN was very good at understanding what was supposed to be there. At the end of this run, it was a five-foot high and “we pulled it off!” If you’ve seen this in 15 years, the bubble was huge; it should be one of the highest memories and accomplishments.

Plus, the adrenaline rush in the performance of the game – sitting there and knowing everything you see at home [the result of] i am making a decision right now. If I don’t call, it won’t continue. There is a hurry to this.

Can you say that people play the most part of your role?
One hundred percent. This and a job well done. It’s a bit of a cliché; I love what I am proud of for our work. I think we’re doing a good job and I like that we’re doing it together. Our people do it, and I’m just happy to steer that ship.

Tim Corrigan [ESPN senior coordinating producer] and I did 14 of them together. He is a great support. We are a very good team and I like the way we improve each other. I was very happy.

Plus, the adrenaline rush in the performance of the game – sitting there and knowing everything you see at home [the result of] i am making a decision right now. If I don’t call, it won’t continue. There is a hurry to this.

How did you get into television?
I’ve been doing this since I was 16 in an ABC branch. It’s pretty cool in Game 7, hopefully when we sign, it’s in the same branch of ABC at the house where I started, at my dad’s station in Jackson, Miss. [WAPT Channel 16].

How do you feel in the historic moments of the NBA Finals?
There were moments in the finale that were huge. We covered LeBron for eight consecutive finals. It’s amazing by him, but we were there to ride. He wore a block [then-Golden State Warriors star Andre] Iguodala in 2016 [see below].

This is one of those moments that you look at and [realize] we covered it really well. But, again, the crew is very good; that’s what they do.

In 2008 when Boston won and [Celtics center] Kevin Garnett shouted, “Anything is possible!” This will get you.

Other 2016, LeBron yells, “Cleveland, this is for you!” And then, [then Miami Heat guard] Ray Allen’s corner kick in 2013 [see below].

The number one goal is to properly record the incident in court. Our fans on ESPN want to see the game. So do we give it to them? I want to say yes.
