My vote has to go for Jeff Van Gundy.

I could really do without Van Gundy's commentary during a game. I see why he hasn't gotten another head-coaching job. Van Gundy's a joke, how could anyone take him seriously?

You know what might be part of it, ABC/ESPN is owned by Disney, so Van Gundy maybe hamming it up for the Disney folks. In his mind he see's Disney as being "for the kids" so Van Gundy makes jokes that may appeal to a 7 year old.


His insight into the game is non-existent and his voice is annoying. What more could you ask for out of a horrible announcer? Bad jokes you say? Well Van Gundy's got you covered there too.

You know who Van Gundy really reminds me of...

Remember Denis Leary on Monday Night Football?

Van Gundy never played pro or even college ball. He was cut from the Yale team.... I don't think that men who haven't played in the NBA should be allowed to cast NBA games. Good announcers reveal the game-within-the-game. How can someone reveal the game who hasn't actually played the game?

Van Gundy is great, he does say stupid jokes but it's funny how he and Mark Jackson poke at each othe. The worst commentator is Ralph Lawler, the Clippers commentator. BINGO!

ohh come on now.. Jeff Van Gundy has coached in the NBA for 15 years. I think he can definitely reveal the "game-within-the-game" as you put it.

Ever since JVG jumped in the middle of a scrap heap of giant bigs throwing blows back when he was a Knicks coach he's had my respect. He isn't my favorite, but I'm happier to have him then the Lakers own home guys.

Yeah their always say no overtime and talking about what they have to do after the game like. Stu is to good to stay for over time because he has a poker game to attend. I shore with all the out of work people in the world some one wouldn't mind missing a game of poker.

van gundy cracks me up...hes not a good announcer but hes entertaining for sure. Sometimes I think Joel and Stu both sound ridiculous, but being an announcer aint no easy job. I remember stu saying a couple years back, "If the Lakers want to win, they need to put the ball in the basket" :facepalm: duh!

The two announcers for the clippers are pretty bad tho...they got suspended for being racists last year. :p

I will have to hit this thread a little later in the season. I'm not in Cali anymore so I have to get league pass. The downside to this is that I have the misfortune of listening to the home teams announcers when the Lakers are away. And let me tell you some of these announcers make even the worst nationally televised announcer sound like Chick.

I know there were a couple games last season where I was blown away by the sheer stupidity flowing from the mouths of some of these fools. I will get names this time.

JVG has to be the best annnouncer there is. his statements are often what other people are afraid to say. i enjoy hearing his opinion.


i would have to say the most annoying is either magic johnson or charles barkley (sometimes).


my favorite is stuart scott (i think thats his name, the black guy with cross eyed?) and the other one i like is DA SWAMI!!!!

I could not agree with you more!

however Joel Meyers is pretty awful too...everything he says is a question and Stu Lantz has to always correct him. He also looks like a pedophile. Bring someone new or at least bring back Sunderland! Chick Hearn must be rolling in his grave.

For this i gotta go with Matt Devlin.
I'm pretty sure his IQ is somewhere in the single digit range. He tries hard but he's about as square as they come.

Below is a prime example of what he brings to the table for commentating. Worst commentator ever or comedic genius. You decide.

Joel Meyers? The man is trying to fill in for Chick...
Yeah he does look like he's made of plastic but give him a break. No one wants to be in his shoes.

If anything more people like Stu now because he reminds them of the Chick days..

I'll never forget I was watching a game about 10 years ago, regular season against the Nuggets I think..
Chick must have gotten lost in a time warp..
(Kobe drives the land and passes to Shaq)
Chick "Magic to Kareem"
he did this a few more times in the game I remember. But I actually never heard him do it before or since. So it made it that much better.

he's mad awkward at times so i could see why you think that, but he's a legend and he's a boss. i've grown to enjoy him and laugh at many of the things he says. he's very knowledgeable too, you can't deny he doesn't know tons about the game. BTW he's not THAT much of a homer, obviously he loves the Knicks but he never gets carried away with it.

The Clippers' "bingo" guy is bad. Just watched Kings @ Clippers yesterday and heard him for the first time. The first time he said bingo, I thought "ok, whatever, I've heard worse" but he just kept going and going with it

Still, no one is more obnoxious than Reggie Miller. He's supposed to be talking about the game. I'm not interested in him constantly talking about how great he was or making really bad jokes that pretty much just consist of him ridiculing other people.

.. Bill Walton is pretty bad.. So Is Reggie Miller and Mark Jackson.. JVG tho is awesome

Locally i cannot STAND Tom Leander..He is so damn corny its a shame they took Al McCoy off 6 years ago. You want your announcers to be Homers in Some sense and Al doesnt pull punches when it comes to the refs, especially the last few years.. Leander on the other hand tries to stay neutral and its like sometimes he forgets who he is working for, When Leander works games with Scott Williams (Another one I dont fancy much) I hit the mute button and what really bites i that I can't turn the radio on and synch it with the televison to listen to Al. I blame this all on Robert Sarver.. thank you for sabotaging my team ..COMPLETELY!

Reggie Miller without a doubt. I thought about it for about 2 seconds before he came to mind. His voice is annoying and he just says some of the dumbest things. Just because you were a great player doesn't mean you will be a great announcer.

Van Gundy is also annoying, but Reggie is on a whole different level.

Listening to Mark Jackson and JVG is like torture.

It's almost as bad as Joe Buck and Tim McCarver doing baseball, which is my all-time least favorite duo.

I also dislike Doris Burke (I will mute games if shes doing them, usually) and Ron Jaworski irritates me as well.

I dislike Ken Harrelson the White Sox announcer, as well, but I gotta say that "Hawkisms" are hilarious and I use them all the time.

Hubie Brown. Just listen to him. He says "they shoot a high percentage" or something close to that about every player. He adds nothing to the broadcast. He just likes every bench player because "they come in and hustle and shoot a high percentage." I play drinking games when he's on. Whenever he says something about shooting percent you have to drink. Try it. You'll be toasted. He is awful.

I dont know the name of the guy, but I once heard a Celtics broadcast. Their announcer was the biggest homer It have ever heard. It was awful. And they were not even playing a big game. It was just some random game against the Bucks I think. All he did was complain the whole game. I then heard another game on NBA TV where they were playing the Cavs. Same thing. I have no idea how that man has a job.

Especially the one that says "YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD, YES!"

He's so biased and annoying.

I'd like to strangle Hawk Harrelson, so god dang unprofessional. Bulls announcer Neil Funk is god awful too.

what are you guys talking about? all the ABC guys are great. they are insightful and they have good chemistry. there job is to give you a feeling about the game and they do a good job with that.

DOnt know if anyone said this yet, but for football Joe Buck sucks balls. More of a baseball announcer imo.

Tommy Heinsohn is by far the worst. His knowledge about other teams is so minimal. Matt Devlin is pretty annoying, and hearing him for another 82 games this year is going to be terrible.

Yes. He should never call another Mets game in his life.

Van Gundy is polarizing. I personally love him.

I don't love Clyde, Tommy H, Bill Walton and the likes.

I think Mike Breem does a good job, but I think he's a complete moron.

The Celtics announcers are biased and homers. I remember last year the Knicks was playing the Celtics and they were saying that Nate Robinson is a circus act. Which I was not mad at that. When the Celtics got Nate Rob, then their commentary on him change, it was "we brought him here to make shots."

Yeah their always say no overtime and talking about what they have to do after the game like. Stu is to good to stay for over time because he has a poker game to attend. I shore with all the out of work people in the world some one wouldn't mind missing a game of poker.
:facepalm:

You do realize when they say that they say it as a joke, right?

I hate Hubie Brown for some reason. That old fart always trashes the Heat as if he has some grudge against Miami. Even when we win, he just talks about all of the things we did wrong. ****, even during the championship he just kept talking about how Dallas handed us the Finals series.

Doris Burke? Was that her name? I hate her so much.

This may be sexist or whatever, but we all grew up hearing male basketball commentators so thats what we like and are accustomed to. She should just stay in the wnba.

I like the Celtics commentator that goes "Bang!" oh i love that!

Honestly, she sounds like a man. And yes, she is just terrible.

Devlin gets the most unwarranted hate. Hes not even that bad, hes avg. Chuck was a homer, thats why people liked him.

naw chuck was awesome, thats why people liked him. he made houshold items like salami and cheese, relevant to basketball. if that isnt a sign of greatness i dont know what is. he had a personality, and even though he was a homer he always gave opposing teams and their players props.

devlin, isnt that bad, but relative to chuck, there is no comparison.

The Milwaukee Bucks announcers. Jim Paschke and Jon McGlocklin. Can't even describe how bad they are and how off topic they get especially with their inside jokes that nobody understands or gets but they think we do.

I agree. I love our Brewers announcers but the Bucks announcers are yuck.
