Default Does Mark Jackson have the worst catch phrase in commentary?

"Momma there goes that man!"

Not to mention the fact that he's clearly a Laker fan, and drops some of the dumbest comments during a given game.

He is just trying to be original. Give him a break.

but it is not original

on the tom joiner show, there is a blurb of a little kid who innocently (and comically) says it. it is the inflection from the kid that makes it funny

when jackson does it, it aint funny

He does that too. He just uses twice the amount of words.

I am impressed with the fact that he can call a game with Kobe's nuts in his mouth.

That is some skill.

"You're better than that" is the sh*t, though. I drop that atleast 5 times a week.

He's obviously a Devin the Dude fan.

I always finish it by adding 'with the brew in his hand!'

I actually like it. My friends and I who watch basketball use it with one another everytime one of us does something good in our lives.

"Mamma there goes that man" is lame. I'd rather see him switch to one of the following:

"Heaven to murgatroid!"
"Oh my stars and garters!"
"Come on! I mean, COME ON!"
"GET TO THE CHOPPA!"
"SEXUAL TYRANNOSAURUS!"
"Delicious."
"Suck my diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiick!"
"Watch out for the big girl!"
"See way beasting!" (my attempt at phonetically spelling something in Spanish)
"That's-a spicy meatball"
"Groovy."
