We need more educated media people talking about basketball so that casual fans can see the difference between losing one year compared to the next. There are 50 people on TV at any given time talking about the NHL, and Sportsnet went all in with the Jays. Why not get some former players to call the games to attract attention (Leo does not count)
Jack Armstrong was a coach for a long time in college ranks.
I don't know if they'd get any former players that aren't idiots.
They should try to get some former CIS coaches or something though.
The Score has a bunch of b ball guys but they aren't getting any raptors games any time soon.
I think the score overall has more people, on-air anyways, that generally have the best knowledge at sports.
TSN just seem like they throw guys wherever, Sportsnet sort of half and half between putting the
Proper guys in their place. But, they also sometimes throw people in over their head.
Mccown's been around since the raptors were rumoured. So, I'd like to think he knows at least a bit about the raptors.
I'll agree Rod Black was in over his head.
That was an excessive hmm.

I mean, I knew hockey was pretty big but the support they have for their teams ... There is a segment of basketball fans in Toronto that are just rabid and you donít know that until you are there. Thatís been very exciting for me because I know when we turn this corner that fan support is going to be there.Ē
Really!? He works for the fucking team!!
Casey is media trained. Well, i might add.
He's a smart guy. He knows that can get him some extra cake in that next bonus.
Plus, he said segment. Never said it was big.
If I heard like a role player from another team say that. I'd change my tune.
Ya,but, I question if those guys are still around.
