I like ESPN better to be honest, but love both. Jackson and Van Gundy duo is great.

Although when Hubie Brown is doing it I get bored.

TNT is awesome. Dynasty already nailed it but everything just feels so much better. Its actually the only time I actually watch halftime and postgame presentations.

Normally yes. But I haven't gotten cable at my new apartment and ESPN3.COM >>> TNT Overtime, so I've been appreciating ESPN much more recently.

The only commentator I really enjoy is Van Gundy, but I do like the Charles/Kenny/Ernie team.

It's almost as if they went out and cherry picked four of the most unlikable guys in all of sports coverage and slapped them together. The only way it could get any worse is if they let Rick Fox and Bill Walton become permanent fixtures on the set.
My god yes. Stuart Scott is the most annoying mother****er on the planet. Michael Wilbon knows **** all about basketball and I'd love to slap that fake smile off Jon Barry's face.

That Durant backpack segment a couple games back...so terrible, so forced.

TNT halftime show.

The audience and Ernie are all invited to hang out with Chuck and his buddy Kenny as if we were at Chucks house to talk about the game. They are just two guys having a good time. Who invited Chris, that dude's a c*nt.



ESPN halftime show.

Guys trying to make a name for themselves in the Broadcasting business give predictable analysis overly praising whichever team is ahead at the half time. Magic stumbles around and says some stuff too. He smiles his Magic smile and that's a wrap.

Reggie Miller is just horrible. So is Kerr.


Get rid of those useless guys and replace them with Hubie Brown and the coverage gets better by 90%



Reggie Miller is so bad and pathetic that his sister would do a much better job commentating NBA games.

I think most people remember NBC just a little too fondly. TNT is much better than anyone else, even NBC

The thing I hate most about ESPN is that immediately after games they go into sportscenter.

F*cking calm down and do like 20-30 minutes of post game right afterward instead of awkwardly jamming baseball highlights in between the game and press conferences.



TNT >>>>>>>>>>>>>> all

Wish they still had GP and C-Webb together though.

Well that's the problem. NBA is just one of a gazillion products ESPN is "selling". TNT treats the NBA like gold.

Wow. Do not agree with this at all. I think Hubie Brown is a terrible commentator. He repeats his stock phrases all the time. He must say "high percentage" 1,000 times a game. He is also so "coach oriented" that it gets in the way of the game.

Gundy/Jackson/Breen is a great trio, but that's pretty much where it ends with ESPN. Everyone else they have is terrible.
