Steve Buckhantz, or as I like to call him, Uncle Steven, is a legend in the world of Washington DC sports broadcasters.  He’s won Emmy Awards, was the voice of the Washington Wizards for the past 22 years, was inducted into the DC Sports Hall of Fame, the list goes on and on.  His work speaks for itself, but in the world of business, that doesn’t matter.  Weeks ago, the Washington Wizards parted ways with their longtime, hometown, announcer, in the worst way possible.  We talk about his long career, Michael Jordan and more.  It’s an interesting one.
