Mike Breen
 
He has to go! I mean how can you employ a guy who clearly hates certain players and overrates others. EVERY SINGLE GAME it's the same crap. He starts off talking about Melo finally playing D. Then he talks about Baron not being healthy and struggling. Then, he praises Jeffries like he's the greatest thing to the game of basketball since Naismith himself. Then, if Bibby gets in the game, he talks about how he's been contributing in ways that you don't see on the stat sheet. Then he does the same with Harrelson. Then he proceeds to continuously rip Shumpert, Smith and Melo for their shot selection. Melo had 43 points 7 rebs 3 assists 1 blk 1 stl and only 2 TOs. However, Mr. Breen felt the need to break down every shot Melo took that he felt was a poor shot. He even went to multiple angles on the replay. It's a damn shame. Mike Breen is supposed to be our play by play guy but Van Gundy was showing us more love than he was. I also read an article that said Breen was good friends with D'Antoni and was pissed when he left. I'll see if I can find the article.

I absolutely loved the JVG response after Melo hit that game winning three in overtime.
He asked Breen: WHO SHOOTS TOO MUCH NOW ?

Breen is ok for me,I just hate the fact that he gets way too much excited when opponents make a run or hit a big shot.

He got really excited when Melo hit those 2 threes,I liked that.

1st three: Anthony for three. BANG. That one goes down and the game is tied.

2nd three: Anthony for three. PUTS IT IN. Knicks by 1 with 8.2 remaining.

BANG and PUTS IT IN are his signature calls :lol

I still miss Gus Johnson. If I were Dolan, or whoever makes that decision, I'd put in the highest bid for him and Raftery to do the Knicks games. I would literally get LP just to listen to them.

LP always streams the home broadcast so I can get MSG only when the Knicks are playing at home.

Probably the lasting effects of being in the previous system in which there is no accountability for shot selection.

But when a guy gets 43 points and 7 rebs and that's what you're talking about every possession, kinda shows a glaring bias. Kinda like if someone were to comment on this forum when they have a bad game or something negative happens.... oh wait.

Great way to blame this one on D'Antoni.

I love it :lol
