Horrible


I'll never forget my breaking point with B&B...when I started to listen less. They had Walton on for an hour or so and treated everything he said like the funniest thing either of them had ever heard.


Because he was. Easily the most entertaining ever.

Walton was one of those guys where even if the game was a 30-point blowout, you would still stick around to listen to what he has to say. Barkley is in the same mold. I wish TNT would let Chuck out of the studio more often.

Completely agree on Walton.

Who do you all have?

As an announcer it's gotta be Marv and it's not close. As a person, Bill Walton obviously.


Walton was the best color guy


I generally agree with your Shaq assessment, but I can't believe that no one has brought up the great Hubie Brown

Hubie is an incredibly smart coach who never ever has been able to take his longform thoughts and pare them down to TV digestible thoughts. Fratello was an equally good coach who could pare his thoughts down enough to work often in a three man booth.

Yes, Hubie is great and he's still got it.

This might be worse than your Bill Walton thoughts. Ernie Johnson might be the nicest guy in the business. Literally nobody dislikes him.

I like Chris Webber. I can't stand Reggie's voice, I guess his analysis is ok. Can't stand Jalen Rose.

the Czar of the Telestrator was Lil Mike Fratello. Who was good.

Oh and Magic was terrible.

I love Charles. And Kenny. EJ not so much.


How do you like Webber over Reggie Miller and dislike Ernie Johnson? Smh
