To me it was Bob Costas hands down. Too bad it seemed like it was a commentator for only 3 years 1998-2000.

Bob Costas? He called games on television as if he was doing a radio broadcast. I didn't think he was a very good basketball announcer at all to be honest. The only good thing about Costas is that he was on NBC who definitely had the best NBA coverage of all-time. NBA on NBC is where it's at.


I think Mike Breene is very good now, Marv has always been strong as well. Chick Hearn is an obvious pick, he was great, laker fan or not.

If we are talking basketball in general, college included, Jim Nantz and Verne Lundqvist are the two best all-around announcers in the business. They only do NCAA games now though.


Johnny Most, the old Celtics announcer is another legend. Called a game on the radio the way it should be called.


I still think Chick is the best of all-time... and it's not really close at all. Just glad he announced the Lakers.
