    O.k I don't follow the NBA that good. But why is the owner of the 76ers doing on NBC as a commentador? Did he sell the team? I have never seen an owner of a sports team as a commentador.

    I'm not sure about the 76ers (don't even know who their owner is), but the Pistons president, Tom Wilson, did color commentary on the Piston TV games for a few years.

    He's is no longer President of the team like he was in the past. After stepping down at the end of last year, I'm not sure if he actually owns any of the team anymore.

    Actually he was only signed as President for x amount of years. Last year was his last year as president. The majority owner did not elect to bring him back as team president.
