Default Best and worst NBA commentator teams

Both national TV and the guys that you hear on the league pass games.

Best:

Kevin Harlan and Reggie Miller
Marv Albert and Steve Kerr (don't really like the czar though)
Dick Stockton and Chris Webber (wish they were on TV more often)
Ian Eagle and Greg Anthony (Nets)
Bill MacDonald and Stu Lantz (Lakers)
Mike Breen and Walt Frazier (Knicks)

Worst:
Jazz commentators - huge homers
Mike Smith (Clippers) - see above
Mark Jones and Dorris Burke - if you're gonna have a female commentator or sideline reporter, at least have her be somewhat attractive and...not annoying (like the great Erin Andrews for instance). Also, Mark Jones is boring as shit.

any crew that doesn't include a former nba player or nba coach

thats why I dont like Doris Burke, it doesn't matter that shes a woman.
what I don't like is that she has never been in the trenches so to speak and her comments dont mean anything to me because of that

The Celtics announcers are terrible as well when it comes to being homers.

I'm personally not a fan of Mike Breen. Also, I can't say for sure, but I feel like the Bulls commentators, the crew with Stacey King, can sometimes be obnoxiously biased toward the home team.

In contrast, I'm on the inside looking out, but I feel like the Pistons crew of George Blaha and Greg Kelser do a fine job of striking that middle ground between appealing toward the home crowd while respecting any given opponent. Former Pistons guy Fred McLeod was a little more up front on his bias, and I think that can still be seen as he calls games in Cleveland now. I liked him when he was in Detroit, but I knew full well he was grossly in our favor. Bill Laimbeer was like that too, but I don't think anyone would ever not expect that out of him.

Rockets/Nuggets take the cake for being the worst

Jazz and Clippers are bad too. I hate listening to craig bolerjack talk about basketball, dude doesnt know shit. Matt Harpring is alright but he is still a big homer. I wish theyd get Karl Malone to do it, sure he would be a homer but at least he would be funny as hell.

Pistons announcers are cool dudes and very nonbiased. I think the Heat announcers are very good too, they are rare in that they will often applaud the refs for making a good call, even if it was against the Heat. I like Mike Breen and JVG, Marv Albert and pretty much anyone (Marv da gawd ), and Hubie Brown as well.


IF you type in "Stu Lantz" on google the third suggestion is "Stu Lantz is annoying"

Is Mike Smith the guy that goes "SLAAAAAM DUNK" when BG throws one down? If yes, then yea, that guy's a homer.
