The worst....I can't listen to them.

2. They said Blake Griffin is going to be shooting like Dirk


I heard their announcer say that in the pre-season - seemed irrational.

1. I've heard them say Bledsoe is as good as Westbrook
2. They said Blake Griffin is going to be shooting like Dirk
3. They said Blake Griffin is Dirk/Malone combined.

They said that Blake will be a better version of lebron too.

I remember Michael Smith saying "there's a lesson for the rookie". Smh. What's the lesson? That with 3 seconds left in an absolute blowout the other team is going to try to trick you into a cheap turnover? Bush league, Caron.


Mike Smith is annoying. All he does is say the most stupidest stats & boast about playing with Kevin McHale.

"You watch anime?"

 

- "Yeah, I just got into it! Just recently, I just started watching Attack on Ti-"

 

"Get away from me, pleb."

That Smith dude and the other old dude that says "Bingo!" are up there as some of the most biased announcers in the NBA. Absolute homers.


Ralph Lawler has his moments but he isn't that bad, IMO. I can tolerate him. Michael Smith on the other hand, is so annoying and biased. His homerism is so disgusting.

The clippers announcers are so second rate. Ralph is so campy, and smith is an ass wipe. If I'm the clippers i would have fire him yesterday

Michael Smith is horrible.

I heard him call Hollins one of the best post defenders in the game today during one telecast

I was expecting Butler to shake one of the Washington player's hand and steal the ball from him, lol.

Yeah, I like Butler out of all the Clippers...but why the hell did he do this?

He was mad, I guess...

I'm still mad the Lakers lost to the C's in the Finals a few yrs ago!

1. "Could be as good as Westbrook, same raw talent"
2. He's shooting like Dirk, IN THIS GAME... You know... Relevant to what people are watching? Also, he DOES have moments of Dirk-esque. (keyword: "moments")
3. Mike said that "He can BECOME a Dirk/Malone combined player" ... Ralph: "He needs to work on his shooting stroke, Mike Smith"

They're not ALWAYS biased. I really don't like Mike Smith, he gets a little carried away sometimes, but Ralph corrects him pretty fast....though, now that I think about it, EVERY paid commentator has to show "SOME" level of bias (appeasing the networks viewers), unless it's a 3rd party station covering the game independently.

1. Nope... he said he is in the same league as Westbrook
2. Nope..wrong " he said Blake's shooting coach will make him shooting like Dirk.
3. Pretty much what they said and they sounded stupid as hell. Malone was not soft like Griffin and Griffin will never have the shooting stroke like Dirk.

Stop trying to hide their bias. They are some of the most biased announcers I've heard.

1. You're wrong, I listen to them every single game. Mike Smith may have said "same class" but Ralph always corrects his "bias" with "time will tell" or something like that... see with commentating, it's a relationship between two people, they have to be somewhat opposite too for some objectivity. Mike Smith is the crazier, wild eyed person while Ralph is the seasoned vet who's seen it all and has Logic.

What I find is that people will listen to something and then completely disregard the rest of the conversation, because they are personally satisfied with the opinion they just made in their head. It's funny because I wrote a huge thing about how every team has biased announcers, and you've completely disregarded that.

Coming from a Clippers fan I wish they were a little more homerish at times, especially when things aren't going right. ("Another turnover... and that's basically the story of this game".
