No stranger to politics, the Nevada native and former UNLV and NBA player is featured in a new ad for the Republican presidential nominee
“I really lost faith in [Barack Obama],” Anthony says in the 30 second ad, which was uploaded to You Tube Friday. “I’m supporting Mitt Romney. He’s a no-excuse kind of guy and over the last four years, I think we’ve heard enough excuses.”
During the ad, Anthony admits he voted for Obama in 2008 because he “thought he’d be a centrist.” He also says high unemployment rates in Nevada is another reason he’s not supporting the president again.
