Default clyde announcing

I love him I think he's the greatest announcer out there, for basketball at least. Anyway I was wondering your opinions on him, I have heard lots of people actually don't like him for all the vocabulary and metaphors he uses (matador d haha thats the best one). And also why hasn't he become a national announcer? did he turn it down? because hes better than most out there, there are some really bad national announcers ie bill walton.

You should really stfu because he was the leader of the Knicks team that actually won us a championchip. As an annoncer hes ok, he does have a boring voice but give him respect.

I love clyde, mostly because I'm a Knick fan. He really knows the team and really knows the sport. He does not hold back with criticism - which is great. He is extremely tough on point-guards.

His rhyming and chiming have actually slowed since he's been on TV (him and Breen used to dominate the radio together) but its still omnipresent when he breaks it out.

C'mon man, why all the hate for "The Rolls Royce" ???

I enjoy Walt Frazier, anyone that says they would rather have Kenny the Jet obviously is not a hardcore Knicks man, how do you diss someone from your squad that got us a title some time back ?

It's always a pleasure hearing commentary from a Knicks Legend, why the hatred baby ?

Oh yeah, he has a boring voice

i love clyde as i said, but just cause he was a great knick doesn't make him a great announcer, he just is. for example starks is the worst announcer ever.
