I'd be happy if she could just read tweets correctly.

Listening to Dave Miller is like listening to a loud infomercial host hawking pans at 3AM.

Coach Dave is the only 1 who keeps things in perspective. All the other guys are biased either they are laker (kobe haters/critics) or Pau apologists.

The TWC pre- and post-game shows have been an unmitigated DISASTER so far. Just embarrassing.

Well weather its on the radio or TV he is paid to be a Lakers analysist. It would be great if he was neutral but it is Lakers network so expect him to be leaning toward the Laker side. The neutral reporters should be on ESPN , NBA TV etc.


Chick used to call it like it was, and I miss him for that. You knew he cheered for, but he would analze things honestly. I often wonder what his take would be on this current iteration.

It all about DAVE??

I love the Lakers. I was pleasantly surprised to get (almost) a RTC Laker feed Lakeshow, Access, etc... It was important because I'm recovering from (back) surgery (yes, like D12)… gave me something to look forward to. Until Dave Miller…., he's quite loud, brazen, dismissive of the opinions of (HOF James Worthy, 7-ring Bob Horry, beat writers, etc..).

Additionally, he tends to shout, gets overly excited (my opinion)….and has a screechy delivery. I saw a show where he donned a costume…and started clinking soda bottles plugged on each finger while driving (isn't that a violation?)…a depiction of a deranged murderer? BigJWorthy said "don't do that anymore" it's a sports show, not the DaveDoesActing ShowWrapStandupComedy? Gee whiz, how talented, NOT!!- if he wants to, transfer him to a show where he'll be fulfilled, but NOT at Laker fan's expense?

I could go on & on…he tries to rhyme his content, inserts wrap-like(?) talk (I don't understand what he's talking about)..it's really bad. I'm restricted to bed (severe, pain)… and one of my favorite content provider (paid),…has only ONE bad egg.

I complained to him directly to #Lakeshow (as Andy Adler has repeatedly said…"send us your questions, comments via Twitter with the hashtag phrase #Lakeshow or direct to @twcsportsnet. I tried many times to tweet the station, the Lakers… then...

I got a tweet from Miller…"say bro, email me your number and maybe I can help you with your problem} coach (and he leaves a non-TWC or Laker's twitter address… looks like a coaching clinic address) !

Look's like he's a bully and I'm not his "bro". I like Twitter (for him) because it keeps him in the spotlight and focuses on the REAL problem… (Me, the customer) want's the show to be informative & of value. It's not about him,….it's his delivery (screaming, screeching), the self-styled off-the-script color phrases and accents (ethnic), he should tone it down. Please don't use the show as a place to do imitations of movies (acting??), it's not what I pay for. I'm a basketball fan. He's the ONLY one who does this. Everyone else stays on topic.

I told him via twitter to read other fans, twc customer's opinions…. we all can improve. Looks like he's either unaware, doesn't care, or doesn't value his job. Add the bullying…well, I certainly hope TWC, the Lakers do not condone his behavior. I'm proud to say I'm a 58 y/o Laker fan who knows WHERE there's a problem. It's Mr. Miller's behavior, actions. Please take care of this?

^ C'mon though, who brings more to the table? Chris McGee or Dave Miller? Pretty obvious right? Andy Adler should've been replaced with Jamie Maggio.


I like Andy ("Andy Girl"). To me, she does a great job, she's intelligent (Stanford) and I can detect (ever so slight) either an accent (or corrected annunciation)…perhaps it's from her childhood, (the accent sounds like a touch of Castllian Spanish*)….oh, and BTW, she's attractive + statuesque (5'9"). Pau is from Catalan, which has it's own 'dialect' (don't mean to imply one or the other is an official language, pardon my ignorance here); http://www.learningt....com/blog/?p=55

In any event, she's fantastic!

*Castillian Spanish is spoken with a noticeable "lisp", supposedly from the days of the Spanish monarch, King Louie… who spoke with a lisp, adopted by the Castillians as their version of Spanish (I'll ask Pau).

Oh, and let's get rid of that fan interaction bull [expletive]. I don't want to stop the show so that Andy Adler can read tweets like "Great job Lakers! Kobe did a good job today." You're seriously stopping the show and potentially stopping someone smart like James Worthy from talking to read meaningless fan tweets??

I'm guessing you've never seen the movie The Warriors.

That's what Dave Miller was referencing with the bottles on his fingers. The most iconic and known scene of that movie.

"Warriors, come out to plaaay."

And we were facing the warriors so it was fitting. But you didn't get the reference though. He also did it in the Parking Lot at time warner, I'm sure they didn't mind that they filmed a skit there.

Good luck on the back recovery!

Thanks for your support. I like the forums, they help with perspective & understanding in the Laker community.
