he's nice to the other teams cause most of the teams in the league he's played in already like Toronto, New York, Indiana and I think the Clips, I think they even had a joke last year that everyone the nets faced he'd been part or known someone from that team before.
i haven't heard him on the air since i live in philly, but the times i've seen him on TV he seemed like a good solid professional.
one thing about homer announcers- sometimes they're so good that anyone can listen to them and enjoy them. the guy who does the sixers radio is a real pleasure to listen to even tho i don't care much about the sixers. he brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm (without being overbearing) and even tho you can tell which team he's pulling for, he's a pure basketball fan who has high regard for the other players and teams in the sport. he spends quality time discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the other team and interviewing other players/execs.
great guy IMO... i just can't remember his name right now. *face turns red* he also has big mac (mccullough) as the color guy the last couple years.
i can't say the same about the sixers TV guys- zumoff is a hopeless homer and kind of annoying. mix is pretty good but has kind of a stange delivery.
you ever watch CEltics games on FS NE? unbearable!
Raptor games are also unberable. in the Kobe 81 point game, they mentioned how great Kobe was in one line then went on and gushed about Bosh for much of the game.
Heat games are somewhat of an anomaly. the announcers are utter Wade homers, yet they also take time to compliment the other team (if they have anything good going) as long as it is not at the expense of Wade.
