Former San Quentin State Prison inmate Aaron ‘Showtime” Taylor
After serving 26 years in prison for armed robbery, Aaron “Showtime” Taylor had the opportunity of a lifetime as the guest public address announcer for the Golden State Warriors game against Houston on April 10. The night in the spotlight followed years of play-by-play for a captive audience and caught the eyes and ears of Warriors’ management during the organization’s annual visit to San Quentin State Prison. Taylor isn’t resting on his laurels and continues pursuit of his dream to be a high-level play-by-play announcer. Inspired by a broadcasting icon, Taylor insists he won’t be denied and that he’s even capable of making curling exciting.
