Pound - I know you're not alone, I've heard a lot of people over the years complain about Stu. I like Stu a lot as I'm so used to him. He was definitely Chick's best color guy because he was the only one who could actually get a word in that he would put up with. I like your Keith Erikson reference - :man10:

But yeah, it's a shame that Spiro bailed on us for New York. He was the guy they were grooming for the job. The gig was his but he wanted that Knicks job. Bummer.

Billy Mac sucks. I can't stand him. He was fine as a post game or pre-game personality, but play by play? Give me a freaking break. I think he's worse than Paul Sunderland, and I wasn't a fan of his.

I really liked Joel but I preferred him with Mychal Thompson as the two had a really good rapport on the radio. Joel and Stu never got along so they were annoying with all their bickering. Stu gets along better with Billy Mac, but "Fresh Snow" is just not qualified for this gig, IMO.




thanks man...agree about Billy Mac too...like i said, maybe i'm deflecting my angst towards Stu because of him


you ever listen to Ireland do the play by play on radio? what do you think of him?

Don't forget "cash money"... Many an eye roll from me on that one. :man5:

It's funny Pound, because I thought I was going to hate him . . . But he's really good! I don't really like John Ireland as a personality - I prefer Billy Mac for interviews - but he's a pretty darned good play by play guy.

At first I was cringing when I found out he was taking over the radio play by play, but I am really happy with him. Who knew?

I can't agree, I love Stu. I think his comments are usually spot on, and he's not a homer blatantly cheering for the Lakers, he's unbiased and praises both teams. Heck even our Subway Sub of the Game can go to opposing team players, like Evans last night, see if many other teams and their stupid, homer commentary guys do that, you won't find many do.

Agree with you guys all the way about Billy Mac's catch phrases. Horrible. "Cash money." Ugh. So unoriginal and uninteresting. And let's not forget one of his favorites "He goes down the lane UNMOLESTED." Embarrassing. :bang:

yea, when they announced that he was taking over, my initial thought was 'train wreck' but the few times that i've caught him on the radio, i've been very happy with his play by play...i can actually visualize the action on the court

Harlan is play by play...he's great. The only play by play guy I really dislike is Breen, who is a big time tool.

Reggie is a mixed bag. Merely okay. I don't think he hates us, but I always get a strong anti-Kobe vibe from him. Professional jealousy I'm sure.

I know - kind of crazy but he's so good at it. Weird. He seems like a natural at it. Makes me wonder if he ever had previous experience with play by play (I kind of doubt it) or if he's just got the talent for it. Whichever, he's doing a fantastic job. And like I said, I'm no fan of his TV personality. But he can really call the play by play. I agree with you that he helps bring that visual into radio, not unlike the GOAT - Chicky Baby with his "World's Eye View."

NO WAY.... Stu isn't the best color guy in the business, but he isn't a Homer... He calls it like it is.

You don't know how lucky we are to have him... Try NBA league pass & listen to some of the garbage that other teams have as commentators.

mychal thompson is terrible, typical homer

ireland is good enough, not Spero but good enough... i just get tired of hearing his voice sometimes (he does TWC TV AND PBP AND has a daily radio show)

and whenever i have a choice between LakersTV and National Broadcast i choose tnt/espn because 1. breath of fresh air and 2. they just have better coverage on both teams in general (ex: the coach interviews etc)... and for the neutral halftime/postgame analysis

the only national commentators i cant stand are Fratello (especially when hes with stockton, YAWN), doris burke, and mark jackson/tom tolbert when they were there... every1 else is pretty good
i get tired of Breen sometimes with his corporate-like views ("oh thats GOTTA be a suspension", always defending the refs) and his random extended periods of silence

Same here. I'll listen to Stu over TNT any day and all day. Not that Stu is the greatest. He does sound a little condescending from time to time, but he is fair. I guess listening to one guy for many, many, many years in a row can make anyone jump off a bridge. Except for Chick.

oh dude..Dick Stockton will forever be linked to the days when he did the play by play with Tommy Heinson


i absolutely HATED those two and everytime i hear Stockton, i still get annoyed...during the good ole days of simulcasts, CBS would get muted and we would turn on the radio and listen to Chick and Stu lol

Stu is great IMO.

Big Game James is starting to get on my nerves about this "Kobe is maturing and is trusting his teammates better" crap. Nash, Howard, Pau.....he's got some real good players now. Whereas before........all he had who was reliable was Pau and 1.5 years of good healthy Bynum. Before that......NO ONE.

Get a clue James.

It depends for me. Sometimes Stu is ok, and sometimes he says some things that are so dumb I think my brain powers off for a minute.

He was trying to hard to be the new Chick once Hearn died and so.........now he is still here.

My dad absolutely hates him, it is kind of funny. He always wants Stu to shut up when we watch the game.

One of the Laker player got doubled and the ball was stolen if I recall correctly. I think he said something along the line of "He gets raped." Might have been 'raked' but who knows? It's coming from a guy who uses 'unmolested' to describe the game of basketball.
