Which NBA announcing crews do you really dislike listening to?

For me, it's Kings, Thunder and Raptors.

I dont know the worst... but the Nets and Knicks both have great broadcasting crews

Nets:
Marv Albert
Mike "Czar" Fratello
Ian Eagle
Jim Spinarkle

Knicks
Walt Clyde Frazier, makes the most random sayings like, "Dishing and Swishing" or Zach to the Rack...
Mike Breen

Milwaukee Bucks was the worst I think I ever heard....

Also I am not a big fan of Leander who does the Suns games... as Barkley would say... Terrible.

I was watching the Lakers rockets online and the Lakers crew was broadcasting. One guy was ok, but the other guy was talking like a kid, he was just horrible

also the rockets home games when Clyde Drexler does the TV commentary, he invents several new words on a nightly basis

When we had Jim Durham he was good for the Bulls back in the day.

You mean Stu Lantz? The award winning, wonderful announcer who knows the game? The one that is widely regarded as one of the best we've ever heard? That one? Really?

Wow, you must be deaf. First of all the Phillies have Harry Kalas (hof) one of the best and most respected announcers in the game. Larry Anderson is also very good and a great color commentator. I dont watch the sixers very often but Dei Lynam (sp?) does interviews for tnt basketball games so they cant be so bad. And if you like fox you must be not only deaf but slow. Joe Buck has got to be the worst announcer in sports.

Ron Boone and Craig Bolerjack are the worst... somtimes I watch Jazz games on mute.

Kings Faithful
11-10-2008, 02:50 AM
Whats with the hatin on the Kings announcers? I know Jerry is kind of eh..but I love Napear, they sound more like people than just teleprompter robots, and they get excited. I also like how they aren't completely biased..yes they do have a biased towards the kings but as fans thats natural, at least they compliment other teams and don't bash on them. I think the Blazers have the worst announcers ever, so biased. And the Lakers announcers consider their team to be the Jesus of basketball which annoys me.

There is a major difference between a bill walton and Harry Kalas and that is Harry Kalas made the hall of fame for announcing and not playing. Anyone who watches games knows he is a top play-by-play announcer. So please enlighten me on 10 who are better if he is so ******.

To those who are saying the Kings...if you are talking about Grant Napear, then I'd agree. But Jerry Reynolds is actually a knowledgeable and funny color commentator. He is one of the better ones.
