Does anyone else sometimes feel like throwing their remote through their wall during national broadcast? I actually had to watch the first two games of the finals against the Pistons with no sound because the commentary was so sickening. I'm guessing that the commentators are never allowed to point out a bad call... ever, and of course the "YOU KNOW, I TALKED TO KOBE BEFORE THE GAME..."

Really my main problem is THEY DO NOT CALL THE GAME. And "color commentary", is the dumbest idea in the history of broadcast. I swear I have never heard one of these guys call action -IN REAL TIME- don't freaking tell me what happened last play while another play is happening. Like if a guy has the ball at the top of the key, 95% of the time someone is talking about something that happened 45 seconds ago. And the beginning of quarter interviews are amazing(coaches must love those.)

"So Phil what changes does the team need to make this quarter?" "Well you know, we need to score." "THANKS PHIL!"

I should have watched a game then made this post, since its not really a serious one. Just wondering if anyone else thinks the broadcast teams are as awful at commentary as I do.
