Now that he’s officially a retired NBA player, Shane Battier has joined ESPN as a college basketball analyst.

“After a fulfilling run on the basketball court, I am absolutely thrilled to join the ‘Worldwide Leader in Sports’ in ESPN,” Battier said. “I hope my experiences as a successful collegiate and professional basketball player will add meaningful insight into the dynamic arena of the sports world. I am looking forward to bringing a sense of candor, humor and perspective to all of ESPN’s listeners, readers and viewers.”

Battier spent the last couple of seasons with the Miami Heat, winning a pair of NBA titles. As a collegian, he was a member of Duke’s 2001 national title winners. He was a three-time defensive player of the year, a two-time all-american and the National Player of the Year as a senior.

    Hopefully he’s improved from when I saw him on something last year. He was awful.
