I loved this year's NBA playoffs... everything except the announcing... it WAS TERRIBLE!

Mike Breen only has one go to word... "BANG!"

I am so sick of listening to Mark and Jeffy Van Dummy arguing with each other like little girls...

We need some quality announcers... some classic guys like Bob Costas... people who actually call the game instead of criticize every little detail...

Games are so much better on the radio because there's excitement and energy in their voices, and they call the game!

The announcing is hype,imo. I think your reminiscing to much about NBA on NBC.

Think about Kirk Gibson's HR or "The Band is on the Field!"...

This next year is going to be AMAZING... we need more than mediocre announcers.

I will be an NBA commentator/announcer when I move to LA. I will call it, "The Fan Perspective" I'll give the average NBA TV viewer what they really want to hear about basketball.

I will save you 24/7...

This is my promise to PSD.

i just wish the NBA was still on NBC. but still you can't make the argument that Breen has only one word. every announcer has a trademark like Marv Albert's "yes!".

Marv Albert is still the best. Think of all the classic Jordan games he called.

Who cares if he likes to bite hookers in the back!!!

Get Gary Payton to announce games with Miller and Van Gundy. I can see all three of them arguing for an entire quarter without talking about the game. Especially Gundy vs Payton.

Payton sucks, Webber grew on me.

Oh I HATE Payton. Only reason I suggest him is I think it would be interesting to get those 3 announcing together. It would be a clash of personalities.

My proposal is for ESPN or TNT to hire Scot Pollard. At least he would make me laugh intentionally.

Breen/Walt Frazier
Gus Johnson/Walt Frazier

SVG is the one I have a huge prob with... He sounds like a whiny little girl sometimes

well we have good analysts, like wilbon and magic and a bunch of guys, the announcers are pretty poor, but my fav is hubie brown!!! i like his wisdom and his ability to recognize somethin special and he doesn't always favor to the better team or more popular team he talks in detail about both teams equally

This topic is real subjective

i think jvg and jackson does a good job. its kinda boring when you got announcers/commentators like hubie brown who calls the game in the middle. idk maybe coz most of the things he say are details of the game that an avid fan of the nba already know. so its kinda better to have announcers call it like a boxing match or mma where emotions are brought.

I like hearing Mike Turico, Hubie Brown, Marv Albert, Doug Collins, and Kevin Harlan. The rest suck.

TNT crews are about 100 times better than ABC ; remember the first year when they had Al Micheals do the finals ? And i just kinda want jeff van gundy and jackson to go away , momma there goes that man.

I think Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy are great announcers. I find Marv Albert annoying.

kenny charles and ernie should become commentators that would be awesome

That would be EPIC!!!! But throw in C-Webb too. I also like Marv Albert.

I hate Mark Jackson. All he does is state the obvious and tell us crap we already know.

JVG is cool. He's kinda funny.

I also hate P.J. Carlesimo. His voice is too raspy from yelling when he coached. SVG is also like that.
