Which analyst NBA or NCAA can you not stand?

For me its Doug Gottlieb. I hate the fact that he has a smart ass comment to make about everything. Its like when the other analyst say something positive about a program he goes out of his way to put them down with some kind of joke.

honorable mentions

dickie v

stephen a. smith

reggie/cheryl miller

Jim Rose is the biggest

Jim Rose is the biggest douchebag alive. The Jim Everett clip is the best!

Vitale is my least favorite

Jay Bilas is the best.

Yah, Gottlieb has a stick

Yah, Gottlieb has a stick firmly planted up his ass. For me, it is Jon Berry. Ever since ESPN OTL interviewed him on the lack of white american NBA players. He seriously thought white american players were sterotyped and not given equal oppurtunity to enter the league. All the other people interviewed said things like "Times have changed, access to a much larger pool of players, advanced scouting etc...", "Ability on the court is what matters, not skin color." Berry sounded so incredibly dumb that I lost all respect for him.

I'm going with the Celtics Announcers

Mike Gorman is OK but still a bit biased but boy, Tommy Heinsohn needs to shut up and call the play as it is instead of arguing all calls that does not go the Celtics' way... Comcast should review Heinsohn's ability as an announcer/analyst because he does a poor job at it...

Jay Bilas is an expert but there are times where he got wrong in predicting outcomes... Number one example? Josh Smith who got drafted 17th in 2004... He didn't even gave Josh the chance to celebrate when Bilas named him as the first "draft bust" in that draft... (WOW)... Look at J-Smoove now...

It doesn't really bug me but

It doesn't really bug me but have anyone heard the raptors announcers. they emphasize at the wrong times, they get all excited when someone gets a wide open dunk but ignore an actual good play.

I cant stand Matt devlin

I cant stand Matt devlin from the raptors, as said above he emphasizes the wrong parts of the game and gives every player a stupid, takes the observational skills of a rock nickname. Also doesnt help that he replaced chuck swirsky who was one of my favorite announcers ever.

The Celtics announcers are

The Celtics announcers are byfar the worst...there bias is beyond belief
Someone on the Celtics can straight up punch an opponent in the face, and they'll find some way to defend him, its almost unreal

Also dont like Dicky V, hes such a legend in the worst of college basketball, but hes just really annoying to me..

Stephen A. Smith, despite having to dramatically turn down the volume on my TV, he wasnt all that bad..

I don't like Jonathan

I don't like Jonathan Coachman. At all. Like, if Jonathan Coachman was a disease, his symptoms would be:

A terrible cough, one that involves mucus
Sore throat
Fever
Swollen ankles
Migraine headache
Nausea
Inability to bend one's left elbow comfortably
Runny nose
Itchy, red eyes

Maybe it has something to do with his WWE days............

Youre right

youre right GatHator eric snow is terrible he is so boring why does he even have that type of job he doesnt have the personality for it he is treating this job just like his career mediocre. Mchale and Webber do work well together but not better than Payton and Webber.

For espn there are tons. I

For espn there are tons. I learn to just deal with them, and quirky sides. But of for TNT, its Charles Barkley, great player, but sometimes his opinions are just flat out weird. And then his jokes are not even that funny.
Steven A. Smith is the greatest as is Skip Bayless, but Jay Bilas kind of gets on my nerves, because he says the most obvious things and his predictions are always wrong.

Dickie V is the Worst, Followed By ....

Dickie V is far and away the worst. He yells too much and gets overly excited over routine plays. More importantly, he spends too much time talking about his personal experiences and almost no time doing his job, which is analyzing the basketball game. Sometimes I wonder if he understands the role of an analyst.

Charles Barkley is right behind him as he often proves how little he knows. But on the plus side, I like the fact that Barkley speaks his mind.

Mike Fratello is similar to Dickie V in that he rarely does his primary job, which is analyzing the game. A good analyst explains why Team A is doing well and Team B is playing poorly. Fratello spends far too much time describing replays which we can see with our own eyes.

I think the two best and most knowledgeable analysts are Doug Collins and Hubie Brown. They do the job they're getting paid to do, which is to analyze the game, explaining why Team A is winning and why Team B is losing.
