Why only two choices? Well my vote goes for Lawrence Tanter. His voice is epic! The dude from Miami is annoying and has tons of cheesy lines. Everytime Shaq would dunk when he was with the Heat, the guy would scream DISEL POWER! LIKE WTH?

Yeah I don't understand how you only put up two and am curious how you came up with those two. I might be bias but give me John Mason (Pistons), none better than him.

Agreed. Lawrence Tanter's voice is on par with the movie guy's voice.

Off topic, but along the same lines. I think Johnny Most (Chic Hearn's Boston Celtic's counterpart) was the better fan than Chic. Johnny was the epitome of typical Boston Celtics fan, too brainwashed to see his teams flaws.

PA anouncer IDK, but best MC has to go to the hornets Rob Nice. The dude is great at what he does and was invited to the last 2 All-Star games.

Detroits is so damn annoying. DE-TROIT BASKET-BALL. I hate that guy. Probably because I hate the Pistons. :)

I like our Boston guy for 2 reasons. 1, hes ours and i got used to him and 2, he says almost nothing except when we score or foul or etc. no random stupidity

the cleveland guy makes me want to throw a brick at my TV. SHUT UP. i cant get over this, "Gimme a C! Gimme an A!, Gimme a V! wats that spell? GO F yourself!
sounds like an 8th grade cheerleader or something.

any PA guy who has to tell the crowd to chant defense = TERRIBLE. "Alright, fans we need some defense, LETS HERE IT, Defense - silence, Defense - silence, Defense - faint defense chant.

I don't know if your talking about radio station or tv station but not to be bias but I would say phoenix. I like al mcoy with the radio station,and eddie johnson on the tv station. I hate scott williams as our commentator on the tv station.

I love John Mason (Detroit) obviously I am very biased but I got to meet him on a couple of occasions and he is one of the nicest and funniest guys I have ever met. I love his intros to. And I definately agree about PA announcers doing chants, that is just dumb.

The pacers PA guy say three different thing when someone hits a three. Some times he says home run sometime downtown and then just Threeeeee. The 3 that get on my nerves the most are Cleveland, Miami and the pistons.

Heck no, hes one of the worst. Its so arrogant the way he announces the game, like whenever the lakers make a bucket, he expresses his tone in a very anticlimactic way, theres no enthusiasm in his voice, its so monotonic. As if implying, "we're the staples center, making shots is what we do, I dont need to get excited about them". I guess it fits in with the whole mantra of the staples center, as college students can study in there. My vote goes to The Nets P.A. announcer.

The Cavs' guy is horrible and Miami's is hella annoying (2 minutes, dos!). You don't hear much from the Kings' annoucer because the Kings don't do much scoring. He's pretty good though. He can make Beno sound like a hard ***. That's not easy to do.

The best is definitely Miami's Michael Baiamonte. He does a great job at annoying the opposing team.

Miami's really irritates me. Whenever Wade scores he goes "DUHWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANE WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADE!!!!". Even if they're down 20 with two minutes left. It gets really irritating.

Lawrence Tanter of the Lakers is awesome though. He doesn't go overboard, he just lets the exciting plays happen without acting like a clown over the sound system.

Tanter*

But yeah the Miami guy is hella annoying!......Funny when like they're losing big time, after the time out he goes STAND UP!!! AND MAKE SOME NOISE!!!! FOR YOUR MIIIAAAAMI HEAT! ....He has so many nicknames for the players, like I said in my previous post, he use to call shaq "Disel Power" lmao!

That was only when Shaq got an assist. He would say the name of the player that scored follwed by "Diesel powered."

Thanks for the heads up :p

I remember him doing that stand up thing at points last season when the arena was empty as well, it was just terrible.

Meanwhile, I don't think I'm making friends with any Heat fans at the moment :p
