Former pro basketball player Greg Anthony is backing Mitt Romney for president in a new Nevada TV commercial.
The UNLV alum says in the ad that he voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 because he thought Obama was a centrist.
Anthony says he lost faith in Obama and is now supporting Romney, who he calls "a no-excuse kind of guy."
Romney's campaign says the commercial launched statewide Friday.
Anthony is a native Nevadan who played for NBA teams in New York, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, Milwaukee and Chicago. He's a sports analyst for CBS.
