    We Need Better Announcers

    I loved this year's NBA playoffs... everything except the announcing... it WAS TERRIBLE!

    Mike Breen only has one go to word... "BANG!"

    I am so sick of listening to Mark and Jeffy Van Dummy arguing with each other like little girls...

    We need some quality announcers... some classic guys like Bob Costas... people who actually call the game instead of criticize every little detail...

    Games are so much better on the radio because there's excitement and energy in their voices, and they call the game!

    The announcing is hype,imo. I think your reminiscing to much about NBA on NBC.

    Think about Kirk Gibson's HR or "The Band is on the Field!"...

    This next year is going to be AMAZING... we need more than mediocre announcers.

    I will be an NBA commentator/announcer when I move to LA. I will call it, "The Fan Perspective" I'll give the average NBA TV viewer what they really want to hear about basketball.

    I will save you 24/7...

    This is my promise to PSD.

    i just wish the NBA was still on NBC. but still you can't make the argument that Breen has only one word. every announcer has a trademark like Marv Albert's "yes!".

    Marv Albert is still the best. Think of all the classic Jordan games he called.

    Who cares if he likes to bite hookers in the back!!!

    Get Gary Payton to announce games with Miller and Van Gundy. I can see all three of them arguing for an entire quarter without talking about the game. Especially Gundy vs Payton.
