Profile Info Page

Robert Allen "Bob" Elliott (born August 16, 1955, in Ann Arbor, Michigan) is an American television sportscaster and former professional basketball player. Elliott was a three time academic and athletic All-American at the University of Arizona, leading his team to one Western Athletic Conference championship and two NCAA tournament appearances. Bob received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and, later, an MBA from the University of Arizona.

Elliott was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers of the NBA, but never played for them. He spent half a year playing basketball in Europe and three seasons with the New Jersey Nets. Reconstructive knee surgery and a desire to other interests led Bob to retire from professional basketball.

Ellott is best known for his voice work as a color-commentator on NBA Live Series PC games with late sportscaster (and former Memphis Grizzlies announcer) Don Poier from 1999 to 2003. He was known for using phrases such "don't start jawing at the refs get yourself back on D!", "Pass the rock, shoot the rock in the bucket!", and during a lead saying "They're lucky to have the lead in the first place".
