Who are your favorite NBA announcers and who do you dislike the most. I guess this relates more to those of you with league pass, but whatever people without it can still talk about NBA TV and TNT announcers.

Favorite:
I like the Timberwolves announcers. I cant think of their names but they are on point whenever I watch a wolves game.

Hate:
Celtics announcers, most notably Tommy Heinsohn, are the worst announcers. and I like watching celtics games, but i have to mute those games because Heinsohn is frustrating to listen to.

currently my favorite non-Bulls broadcasters have to be. Kevin Harlan and Hubie Brown.
Kevin Harlan is just awesome.
Hubie Brown provides a good source of insight to a basketball game.

He's very knowledgeable and considering his age, he's still got it going on.

Classic Bill Walton commentating. There's too much in there, but that part about "Bill Sarver with the vision to somehow acquire Boris Diaw" then that whole rant about Beethoven and the Romantics era and how Diaw = Beethoven. You can't make that stuff up. :D

yeah, anytime he broadcasts a ESPN basketball game I very much sit back and listen to him. Doesn't matter what team is playing.

Jeff keeps it real, kinda like a mini-barklay doesnt care what people think, can talk about anything from the players to the refs. The best part is unlike barklay he doesnt just blabber and rants about players, he thinks before he speaks, offers analysis, and doesn't always limit himself to basketball

Man, I do not like Hanneman and Peterson at all. But you are spot on in hating the Celtics announcers. I heard them for the first time the other night and the one guy is just like a really loud aggressive Bostonian fan with that lovely accent...

My bad. I don't watch bulls games so I assumed it was whoever was on their site. I had to watch that game cuz our network didn't even cover the Nets for that week cuz of the yankees. A bunch of classless individuals. They deserved to choke on their words.

I don't know what you mean by that, but I don't get why people expect team announcers to be unbiased. I like my team announcers to be fans of the team they announce for.

I don't care if they're biased. I don't wanna hear them making gagging sounds on the air. That's unprofessional.

Totally being a homer here, but Mike Breen hands down.

Favorite: Ralph Lawler and Mike Smith

Worst: The Celtics color guy....

AND Joel Meyes...God he is so horrible and boring It really amazes me that Laker fans have never complained about him...after going from the Great Chick ...To Paul Sunderland (who was better than Meyers) To this guy....I mute Laker games when i watch them....

"can you believe this guy!!!"

We haven't played OKC in a month.

And Stacey King is a very knowledgeable color guy. Neil Funk is an idiot.

and who's gonna shoot me boy? lol (i better get a Tommy Point for that)

if someones a celtics fan and Heinsohn isnt their favorite commentator... i question their Celtic loyalty. he has managed to be the only person to be a part of all 17 (soon to be 18) championships.

but anyway, my least favorite are the Millers

I like JVG and Mark Jackson

I agree. I don't understand why so many don't like JVG.

Shouldn't home team announcers be biased towards the team they're broadcasting for? They are catering to the local market.

I do think, however, that their style should change if asked to announce for a nationally broadcast game.

RZZZA
01-07-2011, 03:06 PM
exactly Sox. Nobody has yet answered my question about why it's good for teams announcers to be un-biased.

If I was watching bulls games and my announcers were just as excited about the Nets as they were my Bulls, I would be pissed off and I'd mute them.

How annoying would that be? Every time an opponent comes to play my team, the announcers cheer for the opponent.

Marv Albert is probably the greatest announcer of all time. And then there's Kevin Harlan. I can't stand the T&T guys anymore. They are funny but know very little about what they are talking.
