Bob Salmi isn't exactly a household name, but he is in the households of the 76ers and Comcast SportsNet. Salmi, 47, was introduced yesterday as the network's successor to Steve Mix as the game analyst. He'll also continue in his role as the network's postgame analyst for roughly 20 games, and also continue as the production "coach in the truck" for ESPN's "Monday Night Football" and deal with off-day assignments for ABC and ESPN.
A heavy load?
"In talking to people, it seems like it, but it's still significantly less than being on a coaching staff, especially Pat Riley's coaching staff," said Salmi, who worked under Riley as an assistant with the New York Knicks. "And it's basketball. It's not work when you like it."
