Yeah they were great. We had the best overall commentating team in my opinion at that time. When Marv did stints with TNT and Mark was with ESPN, we had Ian Eagle and Jim Spanarkle who are also very good.
Ian Eagle is awesome. Spanarkle made it a good duo. Ian is good with Fratello, too.
Kevin Harlan / Reggie Miller - even though Reggie can be annoying
Mike Tirico / Hubie Brown - really like Tirico's play-by-play
Bill Land / Sean Elliott (Spurs) - probably cause I'm a Spurs fan
Mike Breen / Walt Frazier (Knicks) - unbiased
Eric Reid / Tony Fiorentino (Heat) - doing a great job, giving credit when credit is due, but they're not in my top top list
+ Steve Kerr
Celtics announcers - god, so biased
Any crew that includes Doris Burke or Jon Barry
Don't really like Marv Albert very much, just too boring, emotionless and repetitive with his "yes!" after every made bucket
The Bulls announcers on CSN, I do not enjoy listening to them at all.
I am often quite understanding of a hometown slant, but they sort of make me feel like everything about the opposition is terrible and anything good they do is lucky, while on the flip side, everything is awesome about the Bulls and any lucky shots they hit are a result of outstanding skill and execution.
On the past three trips down the court, I've heard all caps renditions of "LEANING TOWER OF PISA!" when Marco Belinelli scored, "POPPITY-POP-POP-POP-POP!" when Noah made a jump shot, and "BEAM ME UP SCOTTY!" when Kirk Hinrich hit a three pointer.
