    看着上面的老照片,回忆若隐若现,我又想起了自己作为亚洲篮球协会(Asian Basketball ConfederationABC)解说员的时光。上个世纪90年代中期,我被我的好友、素有解说界“美国之声”美誉的杰瑞·巴里萨诺(Jerry Barisano)率先介绍到了电视解说界。

杰瑞的直播解说生涯可以追溯到在波士顿大学读书时期为NBA圣安东尼奥队马刺队比赛进行解说的时光。当他搬到亚洲生活时他又推荐我去星空体育(原Star Sports,现为 ESPN-Asia)工作,随后我们还同游亚洲(我们最初的工作是在雅加达,但是说真的我们更喜欢在马里兰的旅行)。我们还共同解说了奥运会以及世锦赛资格赛,从杰瑞身上我学到了很多东西。赛前他为解说所做的准备工作相当充分,赛中他的解说又如丝绸般顺畅。当然,想在他解说时插上嘴可不是件容易事,但我们确实合作的很愉快。

如今杰瑞定居沈阳,并且已经是一对双胞胎男孩格文和托马斯(Gervin& Thomas)的父亲(在他的年纪如何照顾得了两个5岁双胞胎男孩依旧是件“悬案”)。现在他正打算在自己的解说生涯上更进一步,他已经和他的挚友、篮球名人堂成员乔治·格文准备携手在体育媒体上再施拳脚。

总之,祝你好运,我的老朋友“美国之声”!


Seeing I’m in the flashback mood I’ll rewind to my Asian Basketball Confederation broadcast days with the above photo. Way back in those days in the mid-90’s I was first introduced to television broadcasting by my long-time friend Jerry “The Voice” Barisano.

“The Voice” has a long history in the broadcasting business dating back to his Boston University days followed by a turn behind the microphone with the NBA San Antonio Spurs. When he moved to Asia he hooked me into an interview with Star Sports (now ESPN-Asia) and off we went traveling across Asia (our first job was in Jakarta but we particularly enjoyed our Manila trips!) broadcasting Olympic & World Championship Qualifying Tournaments. I learned a lot from Jerry. His preparation for a broadcast was highly professional and his delivery was smooth as silk. Of course it was tough to get a word in edge-wise but we had great fun.

Now a committed father residing in Shenyang with his twin boys, Gervin& Thomas, (how he handles twin 5-year old boys at his age still defies logic), “The Voice” is set to take another step in his professional journey with his lifelong friend & NBA Hall of Fame great George “The Iceman” Gervin in the sports & media business.

Good luck, Voice!
