Default Which TNT announcer is better: Kevin Harlan or Marv Albert?

Great voices, but which one do you like better and which one do you prefer?

I go with Kevin Harlan, I just like how he screams and goes wild after every big play.

Love Kevin Harlan, but Marv to me is the MJ of announcing. He's the standard. A shame he's stuck with Miller now.

Marv, hands down. Now he just needs a better sidekick.

Indeed.

I like Kevin Harlan simply because he has more passion. Though Marv does too, Kevin is just amazing and what he does, pumps everybody up.

Shame he doesn't get top announcing gigs anymore. Nice old school flair to his announcing though he is having some senior moments.

Agreed. I love Kevin Harlan's voice and how he just energizes the people watching the TV, and his sayings stick you quite well, such as "with no regard for human life!" when Lebron threw down that nasty ass dunk over KG last year's playoffs.
Marv is an amazing announcer as well, he's very passionate about the game and he has history with the sport. It's like John Madden except with basketball.

Kevin Harlan because his phrases are ****ing hilarious

ie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LW3DlnMCiLk&fmt=18


And about a month ago he went on this like 15 second rant right before a commercial break, something like "GIVE ME A WHOPPER AND MAKE IT TWO PATTIES!!!!!!" Please please please please please tell me someone either knows what I'm talking about or has the video of it. I've never laughed harder during a game.

Lebron's had even less regard.

Harlan. Albert sounds too "announcer-y". Like, no one I know actually has a voice like that; I feel like it almost cheapens the viewing experience.
