DAMM! Chicago gets D'antoni and now the Swirsk too.
Not sure how much he has changed since he left Toronto, but he is pretty unanimously considered excellent in Toronto. Chuck Swirsky is a fantastic broadcaster, very fair, and a huge basketball fan. Great play calling. Lets the colour talk as well. A talker, but not afraid of some dea air to let the fans enjoy the action. A big on-air supporter of the home team, without crossing the line and being a cheap homer like some franchises have. Trade mark sayings ("salami & cheese" time when the game was over and it was time to go make a sandwich) which were endearing, and not over the top.
Had an intelligent and broad minded daily afternoon show on the local radio station too, which won him even more fans.
A huge loss for the Raps, and big win for the Bulls. The Bulls front office is gonna love him too if he does as much positive PR stuff and community work as he did for the Raps. After Bosh, the probably the most popular guy in Raptorland.
All the best Chuck.
