I read today that Magic Johnson will no longer be an analyst for ESPN's basketball coverage.

In my opinion TNT's coverage and studio shows are far superior. Who could ESPN bring in to improve their shows? What former players/coaches/basketball personalities would you like to see?

addition by subtraction. Get Simmons out of there. He is such garbage on air.


-However, I did hear that one major reason why Magic left is because ESPN said that this was now Simmons' show. They want him to be the focal point. Further proof that ESPN is dumb.

Are you serious??

Doris Burke is top thee NBA analysts out there EASILY. Hubie Brown, and Czar, and JVG. Doris just isn't respected because she's a woman. And her voice is annoying. I love when she interviews the Knick players @ halftime or post game, because of her great questions.

Put to answer the OP's question...

Chris Webber, and GP were entertaining together.

Stephen A Smith, Larry Brown, Bill Walton, Doris Burke, are all people who I'd enjoy listening to on ESPN

I'd like to see Stan Van Gundy added there tbh. But I like Doris, she knows her stuff.

Getting Stan & Jeff would immediately make them much more entertaining, which is what they lack when comparing to the TNT gang.

Ill give her a chance. Amongst my friends theres an ongoing joke about her but I wont deny she tends to know her stuff.

I read that Doug Collins is being added - if thats true thats a serious win. ESPN broadcasts are too theatrical and theres never any substance. At least TNT guys are funny and Kenny Smith is always droppin' knowledge and giving interesting perspectives.

Maybe a former referee? That way you can get an insight into why a particular call was made or not made

Steve Nash would be good when he retires in the next few years

Charles Barkley or Doug Collins would be my choices.
