I heard the Bucks announcer,
Dude sounds like a cartoon character.

Who do you feel says the most wacky, dumb, nonsensical stuff in the NBA?
Who if your favorite?
Who can't you stand?

My favorite is Clyde Frazier.
My hated is Mike Breen.

Cant even get the players names right for the team he works for.

Everyone that isn't a Celtics fan hates Tommy Heinsohn because he's a very big homer.

I have the NBA package and I must say Heinsohn gets on my nerves, but I cant say much because he is no different then Ken Harrelson for the White Sox. Stacey King (Bulls color guy) cracks me up. The things he says when Rose crosses someone over never get old. He also makes fun of Neil Funk a lot which is pretty funny.

"There's a sniper in the building" - in reference to Derrick Rose crossing over and the defnder falling on the ground

YES the Bucks announcer is SOOOOOOOOO BIASED it's ridiculous. And I'm talking about the cartoon character guy.

I mean this guy is just a fan of the Bucks it's funny to listen. I remember the Lakers Bucks game and when Kobe drove in on that travel/charge controversy hes like screaming THATS HORRBLE. THAT IS NOT A CHARGE. TERRIBLE CALL!
he does stuff like that every game

I remember another game he's like Come on Jennings lets go. ANd gets really excited and hypes his players when they make every shot and then is silent wen other teams do good

I think Clyde actually is the wackiest (wackest). Can't stand him.

The Nets have the best announcers, it's a shame they do it for such a terrible team.

its not really what he says... just his voice... idk it drives me nuts.. plus when a knicks player doesnt get a call he whines like the celtics announcer does. I like an announcer who calls his own players out if they make a mistake.

In what way?

The only thing wacky about him are his suits,
The way he calls the game is pretty likeable.
The man is not a homer, like some others.

Stacey King is awesome..some of my favorites are:

"Mouse in the House"-Bigger player posting up a smaller player
"Sniper in the Building"-Someone falls when they get crossed over
"Get up and get out the Way"-Someone gets dunked on
"If you're scared, go buy a dog"-Guy moves so he doesn't get posterized

One of the funniest 2 minutes of Stacey is here though:

I hate how he sounds.
I hate his corny catch phrases.
I don't think he really ever provides great insight like a lot of other color guys.

I would have to say Tommy Heinshohn of the boston celtics. This guy has to be the most Bias play by play commentator in the league or any sport of that matter. And i am actually a Celtics fan.lol. If you dont believe me watch some of the celtics games on NBA league pass like i do. Here is a sample. i don't know why this guy still has a job.

As a Cavs fan I LOVE Austin Carr... He has some pretty wacky catchphrases and him and Fred McLeaod work really well together.

Stacey King (the Bulls TV guy) is AWESOME! He has good knowledge about basketball and combines it with a real goofy attitude that is fun to listen to. He's also not a blatant homer like some of the other announcers around the league.

"J-Killa!"

This is a wackiest commentator thread and you're talking about Devlin over Swirsky!! :facepalm:

Chuck Swirsky is the man! If you haven't seen him as an announcer, imagine a 50 year old bald guy that goes absolutely nuts after almost basket, with usually a crazy catchphrase to accompany it.

Some of his craziest quotes are:

"Onions, baby onions" - when a Raptor makes a great play
"Oh my Bosh!"
"Apollo 33 has landed!" - after a Jamario Moon dunk
"Sick, wicked and nasty!"
"Get out the salami and cheese mama, this ballgame's over" - When the game's pretty much over
"Get out the umbrellas, it's raining treys"
"Oh baby what a play!"
"NBA facial" - when a Raptor dunks on an opposing player
"Ring it up from downtown ____ " - when a Raptor hits a 3

and of course, the triumphant, "Raptors win! Raptors win! Raptors win!" at the end of EVERY Raptors' win.

A video of Swirsky's top 10 catchphrases:

Just curious, I see you Raptors fans mentioning Swirski, but does he still announce for you guys? Because he does the Bulls radio with Bill Wennington, but he mentions the Raptors more than any other team. I just never knew if its all because of the previous connections or if he's still affiliated.

Naw, he has no affiliation with the Raps professionally now. But he was our announcer for a decade, as possibly the biggest homer in professional basketball, so he's probably still a HUGE Raptor fan.

The Cavs color man is just bad, he doesn't seem to really know basketball at all. I heard him say something like "Now would be a good time to get a couple of steals and make this a five possesion game." with like 7 minutes left in the 4th quarter. I was dumbfounded.

Doesn't know basketball at all?

Yeah, Austin Carr only played in the NBA for 10 years, averaged 15 ppg for his career and has his #34 retired by the Cavs. A lot more qualified than you...

Even the best commentators state the obvious. His job isn't to analyze, it's to provide comic relief, and he does a great job of that.

yeah, he's a pretty big homer. But really, you guys in boston have knowledgeable, if not biased commentators. In toronto, all we've got matt devlin who sounds like he was pasted together from video game sound clips, and leo, the canadian bill walton.

Well as far as wacky goes...there's Jerry Reynolds, color commentator the Kings. He says some of the most corny and stupid things, but if your a Kings fan you love it (at least I do). Some of his gems:

"Hippity hop to the barber shop" - when someone drives to the lane and finishes
"Brock Ness Monster" - His nickname for Jon Brockman
"Casspi off the glasspi" - When Omri Casspi banks a layup or shot in
"Tyreke is being TYrific"
"Beno draino" - When Beno Udrih makes a shot
"That guy is going to need some CASSprin" - after an Omri Casspi dunk
"Spencer is being 'hawesome'" - His nickname for Spencer Hawes

Without a doubt MAtt Devlin for the raptors. Its so unbelievable bad how canadian he tries to be he just talks hockey and useless ******** he is always touching jack armstrong and crowding him and stuff. And at half time when the show him standing up he is so disgustingly awkward to look at i have to change it hes like that nerdy high school teacher who kept track of your shooting percentage because he was too ****** to be a coach. I actually have watched the last 2 games on mute . NOT LYING
