^ Really? Ahh, Collins bores me most of the time and Reggie's voice is kinda ehh.. but when you have no choice, you might as well. I've never really experimented listening to the radio while watching the game on TV, but eh, who knows, maybe I'll try it sometime

TNT's coverage though, is still the best out there. Certainly it's not perfect and there are plenty of things I dislike, but out of all the choices there is, it still remains the best by far I'd say.

Nah he doesnt bores me. He isnt biased. Tells what it is. I also love Steve albert. Is that the right person? i unno.

I just like how he says "YESS!"

Stu is pretty cool. I don't really mind hearing him. I really don't like Joel at all, though.

Marv and Harlan are definitely the best.

^ That's one of the things I love. AS CRAZY as it might sound, I honestly believe they call it on both sides more consistently than Breen, Jackson, & Van Gundy do. Maybe also because they don't work for the league as exclusively obviously too? Stu is awesome. The greatest way I mean this is when they show replays, if they see something that's a bad call, they'll almost NEVER keep their mouths shut. They'll almost always say something and everyone knows around the league, those that have league pass as well, that Stu & Joel are some of the most fairest/non bias commentators possible out there.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Please explain. I'd love to hear this one.

Being out here in Omaha, the last time I heard them was the last regular season home game. I had the NBA League Pass. I guess they did some away games too that I saw but usually the home team had their home announcers on the League Pass.

Since I don't feel like going back through his thousands of posts, I'll start the count here at 1.

Conspiracy theory #1: The national commentators are more biased than our local ones, and it might have to do with the national commentators working more closely with the league. So their larger bias is somehow connected to the league, meaning the league office is somehow causing them to be more bias.

Stu on one hand that I know of took part in a radio show in one of the playoff games...that I read. Joel on the other hand, didn't hear of anything.

John Ireland still interviewing isn't he?

P.S. Chicano, to top things off, Joel can be a female name too. =.="

I tried to do the TV on(MUTE) radio on gig, but radio was 5 seconds ahead of the game on TV.

Buzz kill.

I miss Stu, not Joel.

You have to admit, Chicano's conspiracy threads are extremely annoying.

I think the best way to deal with an annoyance is to remove it. There's an ignore feature. We don't have to reply to every topic. It seems like the people who are getting annoyed keep going back for seconds.

Well I am not in Cali, so I don't hear them very often anyway, just when their feed is used with League Pass. I am sure many are like me in that they can remember as kids muting the national telecast on TV while your dad turns on the radio/stereo so you can listen to Chick call the games in the playoffs. Those were great times.

Stay on topic please and don't make statements that aren't true. I consider that a cheap shot.

I did. Read the rest of my post. That's just my opinion though. Don't jump to conclusions or assumptions on any of what I said. Just take it for what it is.

The greatest way I mean this is when they show replays, if they see something that's a bad call, they'll almost NEVER keep their mouths shut (Joel & Stu that is, especially Stu). They'll almost always say something and everyone knows around the league, those that have league pass as well, that Stu & Joel are some of the most fairest/non bias commentators possible out there.

Haven't been in Cali for years, but I remember I listened to Chick's last playoff run on the radio even though it was a few seconds ahead of the TV action. Still beat the NBC announcers telling me that the Lakers were dead in the water and didn't stand a chance against the Kings.
