This Celtics troll in the NBA forum is getting a little old, very quick.

His methods are old school and of course he's a Celtics homer, but he knows the game better than any other announcer. He's won titles as both coach and player and anyone dismissing his game calling abilities is a fool.

On some classic NBA playoff games, he is the announcer, so he used to do national broadcasts. I believe he just prefers not to travel often at his age or else he probably would get more national gigs.

Was watching a Bulls/Celtics game from 1991 called the battle for first place and he and Cousy were announcing. I like his voice when announces games. I don't like Cousy's though.

his knowledge isn't what makes him awful. It's his point of view and how disagreeable it is with anyone living outside of the boston area. It's hard to take a guy like that seriously when he believes every call against a team is a crime against the league and the game itself.

Well if you're not a celtic fan he's clearly one of the more annoying/worst announcers in the NBA.

He may know a lot about the game, but he is still a homer who cries after every foul against the Celtics.

Frrrrank!!!
09-08-2011, 01:21 PM
He works for the local broadcast, so he is suppose to be a homer.

If you're watching your team on your local channel, wouldn't you want your announcers being a homer. Instead of being like the ESPN or TNT guys and just endless gushing about the other teams big star?

I understand you are a Boston fan so you think he's the best announcer in the NBA, just like I think the Heat announcers are the best in the NBA lol. but honestly he's horribly biased, to a point were it's unprofessional. That's why he doesn't do nationally televised games

He spends half the game literally crying and screaming about fouls.

I wouldn't. Recently Stu Lantz and Joel Meyers have been doing the commentating, and they don't come out as homers. Maybe because they haven't been part of Lakers history like Tommy has been for the Celtics.

actually no. I hate all local broadcasters including my own for that very reason. Just bloody call the game, because in the end, it's just a game anyway.

See that's the thing. Tommy has lived Celtics basketball and tradition his whole life, winning titles as a player, coach, and announcing title teams. He's gonna be pumped for the Celtics.

exactly, that's why he's the Celtics announcer and not on national TV. Boston fans love him and thats fine but he's to biased to call national games

Super.

everyone hates on sean elliott too because hes a homer but i love him. so i see where c's fan love himas well. if someone was apart of championships for the team there announcing for chances are there gunna be homers, but i rather hear someone that thinks the way i do while watching a game, but i also see how it could annoy someone watching from the outside

THis man has been a part of almost every Celtic championship, whether it be player, coach or announcer. Him beinga homer is a given fact. He is at times a little much but there are 2 simple solutions, mute the tv or don't watch.

Tommy is legend. Naw but I can understand why it's annoying for other fans to hear him. That being said, Mike Gorman is a boss. No one can disagree with that.

yep, bulls should probably get rid of the guy beside stacey king, and have a chuck/stacey duo that would be awesome.

Yep, and it's getting old really quick. I love Tommy, but he's literally the biggest homer there is. I dont blame him or dislike him for it, but to call him the best announcer in the NBA is absolutely hilarious.

In Tommy's mind, any call against the Celtics is a conspiracy, and everyone is out to get the Celtics. No Boston player can ever foul, travel or miss a layup without getting fouled. I love him, but he's a joke of an announcer at this point.

P.S. We have a Celtics forum. Dunno if you guys knew.
