From Israeli hoops to a CBS studio
Before Doug Gottlieb, a basketball analyst for CBS and ESPN was on the air, he was playing professional ball, not only in the U.S. but also for a brief stint in Israel.
Basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb didn't just used to play professional basketball. At one point in his early career, Gottlieb, who is Jewish, claimed his Israeli citizenship and dribbled around on Israeli courts. Now, the former Maccabi Ra'anana player and nine-year ESPN veteran has taken a new post with CBS, living out his dream of serving as a studio and game analyst for the NCAA tournament.
