NBA: Can We Get Some Decent Commentators?

Chris SkidmoreContributor IJune 17, 2008

I know most of you will think I'm a very hateful and judgemental person for saying this, but the commentators for ABC are horrific. The only good one they have is Van Gundy (occasionally).

When we have legends commentating the college games, I think we should be able to get decent people for NBA games. I'm sick and tired of their terrible jokes and obnoxious comments. Especially when that guy screams "BANG!" after every 3-pointer, that just bothers the crap out of me.

And Mark Jackson, can you think of a line better than "someone call 911, Rondo just pick pocketed Kobe Bryant." My 7-year-old brother could think of something more original than that. It's terrible when we can have great legendary commentators in every sport but basketball.

It's the finals, give them a script or something so they don't look so ridiculous!

(sorry I couldnt find any good pictures for this article)
