    My vote goes to Dan Burke. Nothing better than his post-halftime interviews.

    Did Austin go broke?

    Most guys want to do SOMETHING after they retire, and money isn't going to be an object - they'll do what they want to do.
    He does the pre- and post- game show, occasionally doing color for the Pacers in a pinch, right? He lives in Indy, so he just has to drive to the studio for a few hours a couple nights a week and gets to sleep in his own bed. Big difference from traveling on the team plane for half the year and being away from your family.

    Of course, this is pure speculation on my part.

    Austin moved back to California 6 months ago. He occasionally steps in now for the Pacers, but his main gig is now with Fox Sports 1.

    Right, sorry. That is of course in reference to his role with the Pacers broadcast while he was still here.

    Before he moved he was doing the away games for 1070 because Slick doesn't travel. This year Mark is doing them on his own.

    Solomon might be our most well spoken player. Not sure why he only has the one vote.
    I almost voted for him, as I've remarked on here before about how well spoken he was in interviews. However, Danny is also very well spoken, and has the "fame" factor, so I went that direction..
