How long until this clownish announcing team is taken off the air? They find a new way to embarrass themselves every bloody night.
If you were the EP over at ABC/ESPN, who would you hire to replace them?

Van Gundy is a jackass at times, but I do think he raises a lot of good points, and it's refreshing to hear someone who will vigorously criticize bullshit calls by the refs.

I'd prefer any other primetime team. Reggie Miller, Hubie Brown, Doug Collins, anyone. I think I'd listen to Glen Beck call the game over Jeff van Gundy at this point.

Van Gundy loses credibility whenever he hashes out some lame idea for a rule change, like suggesting extra fouls or something like that. The give-and-take between Van Gundy, Jackson and Breen is pretty solid for a 3-person crew; I'd call Jackson the weak link because I don't think he adds any valuable insight. He's less monotonous than Reggie Miller, I'll give him that.

It's by and large the best crew covering national games though besides Mike Tirico/Hubie Brown.

But those guys, including Beck, are employed elsewhere. I'd rather hear Marv call the game but TNT doesn't air the Finals so that's moot......

So, who would you prefer ABC/ESPN hire? If you don't have an answer that's cool, but I enjoy such discussions.

good recovery in the 3rd. Amazing that the c's are still frustrating as hell with the offence, and havent really impressed yet, but have still dragged it back to 6

Sandler, Spade, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider? What the fuck. First of all, none of these guys have been relevant since like the mid '90s. And the last thing I want to do is listen to them talk about basketball like they know a god damn thing about it.

And Kevin James has never been relevant

I like Hubie Brown and Mike Tirico. They call a balanced game and do not just toss hyperbole and mindless "oh what a move" comments at whichever team happens to be hot at the moment.

I see how Van Gundy and Jackson may appeal to some people, but I personally do not care what the latter's favorite Beyonce song is or how many romantic comedies the former watched last week.
