Mike Breen idk in my opinion is getting kind of annoying..not a big fan of him as an nba broadcaster.....he was decent for the Knicks but idk his expressions come gametime are getting kind of old. Saying bang!!!! Everytime a player from a home team hits a 3 point shot. He's just ok IMO. As for Ian Eagle well
Not a fan of him either. I think he takes everything so personally...when mike Fratello said something during a nets celtics game Ian threw a hissy fit for no reason and Fratello said he was sorry I believe. Ian just screams too loud and sounds like he's always excited kind of like Gus Johnson who's on FOX Sports I believe now. I thought brent mussberger and Al michaels did a fantastic job announcing the nba on ABC when it first started but I was a huge fan of The NBA on NBC..the tripleheader, Ahmad Rashad, Peter Vessey, Pat Croce-spelled his name wrong,and bob costas-well aaahemm *coughing* clearing my throat costas was umm ya Idk how to describe it but awkward. He's on NBC Football and I thought his statement during halftime that one night about gun violence was wayyyyy out of line.

If the Knicks could somehow replace Breen with Van Gundy.....I know it might never happen...but I'd be forever grateful.

Don't really mind them. As a matter of fact, I like them.

Because it would make sense to have a color commentator become the play by play guy:rolleyes:

Ian Eagle is awesome. He brings a lot of energy to games

That video hypes me up and it has nothing to do with Deron Williams to tell you the truth. It's all Ian Eagle.

EDIT: Actually ALL of the Nets announcers are awesome. Not even being biased but i never realized how spoiled we Nets fans are as far as announcers till i got League Pass and heard some others

IDK who eagle is but I know Mike Breen is brutally annoying, he's so pro-NBA referees and he always tries to defend the refs and the NBA when they F up.

Are people serious about not liking Mike Breen? I think he's great. He's got a good voice, very knowledgable, and keeps the games really exciting.

I like Ian Eagle too. I like Ian paired with Bill Raftery for college basketball.

LOL This is awkward but...

I kinda like when Breen yells "BANG!"

It makes the moment more intense. Like last year, he went nuts when Melo hit the two threes against the Bulls.

Breen sounds like a condom company

"I wear some Breen condoms, they are the best"

Anybody with me? Yeah!!!

I think Mike Breen, although he plays favorites, is the best in the biz...

I'm honestly privileged to hear him most nights on MSG.

BANG!

Yes that and the Lin game against T.O. Breens calls made it even more exciting. I like Breen. A lot of people dislike him because he's objective and not a homer. If people actually listened to the other Broadcasters they would appreciate Breen more. Off the top of my head, teams like Houston and Cavs have terrible Broadcasters Imo.

Breens smooth, Eagle is pretty annoying. Nothing is worse than Michael Kay (mlb). I can't standdddd the "see ya". He's knowledgable as hell.. but that "see ya" makes me wanna throw a brick at my tv.

The worst, and I mean WORST announcer on any network is that Celtic ultra homer- old man Heinsohn or whatever his name is. Jesus there couldn't be a more annoying person.

Van Gundy is not a play by play announcer.




Because it would make sense to have a color commentator become the play by play guy:rolleyes:

Thank you. It is remarkable how many people compare/contrast announcers without realizing the varying roles.
