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.

Surprise anyone would say the Lakers. They are more tough on the Lakers than anyone. IMO most Big City announcers are somewhat unbiased. Those cities know the game to well to just be blind homers it often reflects in the tv broadcast. Except for Boston which is a joke. Stacy King is a homer but he still be very critical of the Bulls when he needs.

Yeah even going back to the Chick era, Chick and Stu would always point out when a call was questionable and it went the Lakers way.

Almost all of the local announcers are awful. On the Bulls board, King and Funk are a running joke. Sean Elliot deserves to get fired. Boston's are terrible. Portland's can talk a long walk off a short pier. Orlando's suck. etc.

Its much, much easier to come up with a list of local announcers that are tolerable. NJ and NY are the best that come to mind for me.
The regular season only matters when you lose.

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

Usually they are pretty objective but every once in while they find a team and start bashing the hell of it, Last night was a perfect example.
No idea why they felt the need to keep bashing the bobcats throughout the game, I hate when commentators do that.

As far as officiating goes, they usually point out the blatant mistakes(in favout of either side)but for the most part they dont really say anything.

The Spurs crew is the only ones that made me turn off a game because of them.
Hawks and Kings are pretty dull.
If you want to try to measure the elements of basketball that are supposedly unmeasurable, spend a game just watching Marc Gasol.

Celtics, Spurs, Cavs.

Tommy is by far the worst, I know Celts fans think he can do know wrong, but his heavy breathing alone is enough to change the channel.

I forget the game it took place in last week, but Tommy was basically yelling “fraud” at Violet Palmer lol.

Surprised to see no one has mentioned the Grizz yet. Brevin Knight is a work in progress to say the least, Sean Tuohy is a giant homer (but he seems to have toned it down alittle bit this year), and Pete Pranica is extremely repetitive and homerish.

Love the Nets commentators. Ian Eagle is awesome.

My 3 worst are Nuggets, Celtics, and Spurs. Most local commentators are going to be homers. These guys take it to a whole other level
