And also, he's the color commentator, he should be the one giving out opinionated statements. Spark up conversations between the commentators. The regular play-by-play guy (Breen) should be the one giving out stats and obvious shit.
That's why JVG + Breen (+ Jackson) is a good team. JVG and Jackson are there to give some personality to the crew with their opinions/views, while Breen is the equalizer.
Hubie + Breen = same dudes(both are play-by-play, no color commentator role) basically.
I like Hubie. I get where you're coming from but personally I don't care if the color commentator doesn't spark up "interesting" or "controversial" convos. When I read that part I immediately thought of Reggie Miller. He sucks and he's constantly trying to start shit for no reasons. Also he's phony as shit.
LeBron gets hard fouled by Westbrook in the finals
Reggie Miller "Remember now, after game 2 Westbrook said the Thunder needed to get a bit more physical! Oh believe me.......that a message sent by Russell Westbrook for what happened in game 2. This series is getting chippy to say the leeeaaaasssttt"
Same exact play, LeBron gets fouled in transition:
Hubie "See there, Westbrook saw LeBron running the floor so Westbrook fouled him so he wouldn't get an easy layup. You always wanna foul the guy and make him earn two points from the free throw line. Don't give them layups Mike. You see there, see there's the foul right on the arm"
Me: *continues eating popcorn*
I don't need some douchebag like Reggie telling me LeBron is playing so well to send a message because Michael Jordan said Kobe is ahead of LeBron on the all time list.
