Such creativity. No one is capable of saying these very phrases like Bill Walton. Respect the man, he might be the most humble past/present superstar.

"That was the worst execution of the fast break in the history of the Trail Blazer franchise"

"Stroke it, big man!"

"This Portland team is nothing more than a band of pranksters."

"Goodness gracious sakes alive."

"Shaq with the monster throwdown, the basket just reverberating."

He is the greatest.

I'm not convinced how "knowledgeable" he is, either. Any good broadcaster can research their teams before the game and have stuff written down.

He just seems to have a want to babble some random obscure fact, and people think that makes him intelligent.

I can't think of too many broadcasters I like less.

Mathius


to me it sounds more like he just got out of having a root canal and the anesthesia hasn't worn off yet lol

i DO appreciate the passion he has for the game

I can't stand Doug Collins and his ballwashing of Shane Battier (and all the other players who "do the little things" (translation: dudes who flop)). He can't get through a quarter without mentioning that he coached MJ, either. HE GOT YOU FIRED. YOU PIECE OF ****. SHUT UP. I appreciate his knowledge, but he gets on my nerves.

I'm going to miss Steve Kerr so much, liked his sense of humor a lot, he's got good chemistry with Marv.

I'm not sure what's up with all the Marc Jackson hate, the few Nets games I've seen where he was paired with Eagle, he hasn't detracted from my viewing experience.

True story: He was a guest (paid) a company my friend works for (a major computer company), a few years back at their annual meeting. He was allotted something like 30 minutes to do present and it had a motivational theme as you might imagine for such a venue. Anyway, he kept talking and talking and talking, and literally, they had to pull him off the stage. He went like almost a half hour over and probably could have talked for another three hours.

Amazing!




thats pretty funny
