Previously, Christie filled in a partial role on the broadcast team during the 2017-18 season. Christie played 14 seasons in the NBA with seven teams, including the Sacramento Kings from 2000-2005 and was named to NBA All-Defensive First Team in 2003. Christie was also named NBA All-Defensive Second team in 2001, 2002, and 2004 as he helped Sacramento reach the postseason in each of his five seasons with the Kings. Christie stands as the Sacramento-era leader in career steals (717) and ranks second on the all-time leaders list in career steals for the Toronto Raptors (664).

Since retirement he has trained athletes on every level, while studying the game and its fundamentals meticulously, which has led him to a revolutionary approach with Mind, Body and Sport.
