Greg attended Rancho High School where he started playing basketball for his school’s team, and upon matriculation enrolled at the University of Portland, becoming the best freshman player in Oregon. He soon switched to study at the University of Nevada, where he began playing for the Runnin’ Rebels team who went on to defeat The Duke Blue Devils at the 1990 NCAA Championship. In the following game, Greg broke his jaw but went on to play nearly all the games of the season. When HBO decided to make the movie “Runnin’ Rebels of UNLV”, Greg was invited to appear in it.
While at college Greg spent his summers working, with his first job being at the World Economic Summit, while he also had his own clothing business while attending second year, and the money earned from it was enough for Greg to pay for his college. In 1989, he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in political science.
Career as a basketball player
In 1991, Greg was drafted to play for the New York Knicks in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as their defensive specialist.
He stayed with them for four years before transferring to the Vancouver Grizzlies in 1995 where he stayed for two seasons and then switched to playing for the Seattle Super Sonics staying with them for a year.
In 1998, Greg played for The Portland Trail Blazers, then in 1999 joined the Chicago Bulls staying with them until 2000. His final team was the Milwaukee Bucks with which he played until 2002 when he retired. After retiring, Greg was invited by the ESPN network to work as their basketball analyst covering the NBA. He began working as a college basketball analyst in December 2009, joining the CBS Sports division of the CBS network, and in 2012 he became the commentator at the YES Network, mostly covering the Brooklyn Nets team.
Greg can also be heard in the “NBA 2K16” video game where he has voiced a commentator. He is interested in politics, and was a supporter of Barack Obama in 2008 but then supported Mitt Romney in the 2012 elections.
Love life and wife
Greg married his college sweetheart Crystal McCrary Anthony shortly after graduation, and she gave birth to their daughter in 1992 while their son followed in 1994. After nearly six years of marriage, the two divorced due to what appears to be Greg’s infidelity. In the first half of 2000, Greg married Chere Lucas Anthony who is a dermatologist, and she gave birth to their daughter in 2007, and their son in 2009.
Dr. Chere R. Lucas Anthony holds a degree in dermatology, and is specialized in cosmetic procedures, pediatric dermatology, and dermatologic surgery. She attended Dartmouth College, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in anthropology, continued her education at Duke University’s School of Medicine, and then studied at Case Western University finishing her dermatology specialization. She won a Stead Fellowship Award while she was studying at Duke University.
On 16 January 2015, Greg offered $80 to an undercover police officer who was pretending to be a prostitute, and was arrested and charged for soliciting a prostitute.
He was not allowed to work at CBS for over a year, resuming work in March 2016 while the court decided that Greg should do 32 hours of voluntary work and be on probation for four months for the charges to be dropped. His marriage with Chere was tested by this, but the two still remained together.
Hobbies and other interests
Greg is interested in many other sports such as American Football, soccer and tennis, while he also plays lacrosse and table tennis. He is an avid swimmer, while he goes to the gym four to five times a week to stay in shape.
He enjoys watching movies in his spare time, and some of his favorite actors and actresses are Dustin Hoffman, Tom Cruise, and Valeria Golino, and favorite movies include “Rain Man”, “Pulp Fiction”, and “The Expendables”. Some of the TV series he likes to watch the most include “Breaking Bad” and “Prison Break”. He likes to travel, and he and Chere have been all around the US together while they have spent some of their vacations in Greece and Spain in Europe. They are both lovers of animals, and currently have two pet dogs.
Greg is currently dedicated to raising his and Chere’s children, and teaching them how to play football and basketball, but has promised he will not force any career onto them but will let them decide what they want to be once they grow up.
Appearance and net worth
Greg is 52 years old. He is bald and has brown eyes, is 6ft (1.83m) tall, and weighs around 176lbs (80kgs). As of March 2020, his net worth is estimated at $10 million.
