Lakers play-by-play voice Spero Dedes is calling the UCLA – Notre Dame game on CBS at 2 p.m. on Saturday, while Los Angeles sports personality Bill Macdonald (a.k.a. Billy Mac) has joined the team in order to call the Lakers – Nets game alongside Mychal Thompson.
Dedes had this to say before heading to South Bend, Indiana:
It’s bittersweet, to be very honest. You grow up dreaming of one day calling a game on national TV, and CBS has given me this opportunity. I’m thrilled to be in this spot. But on the other hand, I’ve always been very apprehensive about missing Laker games. If the Lakers weren’t as supportive as they’ve been, I wouldn’t be doing this. Billy Mac will hold it down. I’m just praying Kobe doesn’t go for 82.
