    It's funny how many people miss Swirsky now. But when he was here, there was a lot of hate, especially for his over-the-top homerism.
    I was just thinking that too. I'm sure if we went back into the RR archives to the time when Swirsky was here, the hate would far outnumber the support (and I was a supporter).

    That would be "In the words of Joni Mitchell."

    And I am a little surprised , LBF, to hear you singing a Joni Mitchell song.

    And I was referring to the Counting Crows version. So, in all untechnicality I was not qouting a Joni Mitchell song. But, I technically was.

    The polar opposites in the booth are the Hubie Brown and Tommy Heinshon.

    Tommy is such a douchy homer. Even if I was a Celts fan I'd hate him. I can't believe he was a HOF player AND coach. Dude is an embarrassment to broadcasting.

    Hubie on the other hand is GOAT. Always on point, is a basketball savant from whom you can learn something from every single time you listen to him call a game and doesn't get caught up in either the hype-it-up mentality of many broadcasters nor the "I know more than you" attitude of many others.

    FWIW I wasn't a huge Chuck fan but at least he didn't sing or try to act cooler than he was. Matt is Mike Scott from the office, but neither funny nor empathetic.

    Agree on the Hubie and Tommy points. Hubie is one of my fave color guys. TNT has most of the good ones IMO. JVG is still my fave. Steve Kerr is pretty good, and I think C-Webb is gonna be really good in a couple years. Could def do without Reggie Miller though.

    For local networks I think the YES is most spoiled (nets I think). Marv Albert and Czar is a nice combo.
