Look at that!" Then there was about four or five seconds of dead air before they cut.

Was beautifully awkward.

I enjoyed the silence after Eric said that "32 teams could have drafted Draymond".

Collins' brand of enthusiasm and knowledge of CHA bball history sure works in a win like that @OT one over Sactown. Cracked me up when they showed Peja Stojakovic talking to someone and I'm like who is Peja talking to, and Collins is like, hey its former CHA player Brad Miller and doesn't recognize Peja until Dell tells him. It helps I think that Stephanie and Dell have grown to like him. The 3 seem really relaxed giggling and carrying on. Collins comment that Cousins was as strong as ten rows of onions drew a warm chuckle from Stephie.

Collins is a fan of the team. I love that about him. You can tell he really cares about the team and I find his enthusiasm infectious. His knowledge a research is also impressive.

I also like that when he does say something wrong he's humble enough to call himself out and correct himself.

Unlike that idiot Uncle Steve.

I'm super happy with Collins and think the three person booth is working well and will only continue to get better.

I sometimes find Eric Collins so over the top but his "Troooooy Daniels How You Doooo" was perfect for the moment.

This turkey tried to give the nickname 'crash' to another player b/c he forgot about Gerald Wallace. Fire-able offense!

I thought he was being reminded of Wallace.

watched the 97-98 Bulls against Pitino's Celtics today. Johnny Kerr was teasing this young sideline reporter that he has to have a report on the color of Rodman's newest hairdo.

Yup, mentioned it in the game thread. Even tweeted FoxSports Hornets about it as well.
