Don't get to hear them often but I thought the Phoenix Suns announcers were absolutely hilarious last night.

Watching Orlando's broadcast right now. Good lord.

Celtics announcers are so bad it's hilarious and I enjoy it. :lol:

I could not stand Portland's commentators. And if I recall correctly, I absolutely loathed the Jazz's own.

Orlando and Portland each have one grumpy old man who literally does nothing but bash the other team. Listening to this guy you would think the magic were title contenders

Jazz and Nuggets are bad. Nuggets are homers and Jazz are just annoying. Big Al every time Al Jefferson touches the ball...

Clearly y'all have never heard the Rockets commentators... Just listening to them, you'd think they should be 82-0 every year

Celtics, Clippers, and Denver are probably the biggest homers I heard.
Classics :

Knicks, Giants, Yankees, Rangers

I like our guys but, Tommy is the biggest homer in the history of sports(I do enjoy him tho). So I could see how other fans would have him as the worse. Mike Gorman is good tho.

Boston is most annoying followed by Portland.

Stacy King with the Bulls is painful when Rose is playing.

Orlando has the most boring broadcast in the league. That group would have been let go in just about any other city.

That said I still can't stand Sean Elliot. He is a former player not that far removed from playing. Yet it seems like the only team he ever watches are the Spurs. In terms of strengths and weaknesses of players that they don't see often he seems lost at times.

Celtics are awful.

Nets and Wolves have good commentators.
