yes i have..i had the NBA package a couple of years ago and i've heard some real crap out there


just because Stu's better than them is not a legit reason for me to like the guy


it's like 'i like Richard Ramirez...he didn't kill as many people as Hitler'

I use to not like him bc of how condescending he was, but he's actually kind of funny sometimes (usually when he's not trying to be). And his lack of bias makes him likable as well.

"Hey, you never win the battle with Mr. Floor"

"[insert fictional conversation]"

"Players always jump off one leg and you lose your balance"

"Ive broken my nose a million times, but theres nothing like a back injury"

"when players airball, they usually overcompensate and its long on the next one"

"i have a bowling tournament to go to" (he actually switched it up on Sunday)

"Splaaash"

"Noice"

*just a chuckle*

at least most of the Stu-isms involve actual analysis and not random stuff like "WHAT CAN BROWN DO FOR YOU"
im sure we'd be irked by all the color guys' catchphrases if we had to listen to them call 82 games a year too (like how we know Lawler's and Breen's)

most of the time he says these things are when they're going to a commercial break anyway

I have to agree with you guys on Dave Miller, he is horrible. Hopefully Big Shot Rob or anyone, it could be a sock puppet for all I care, will replace him.

I almost want to skip watching the road games in Portland. Those announcers are the absolute worst! I just end up turning the sound down some.
I personally don't have a problem with Stu. He's part of the team with Chick that made listening to Laker games so enjoyable. For me Stu makes Mac bearable to listen to. Especially with the "Fooooty call!" Really?! After Chick, any other announcer seems just....not quite good enough. But we are talking about Chick Hearn, greatest of all time.

one thing about dave miller is that he's very enthusiastic (loves his job) and knows the game, i just wish he wouldn't be so annoying about it lol... rapping and such, molesting Duhon during a play demonstration - looks like his breath stinks too... i wonder if thats what the producers want

ironic thing is he has the qualities u want in an analyst

sidenote: weirdest part about TWC is seeing what these radio voices and paper columnists actually look like in studio

sidenote 2: i liked Sunderland

Stu is garbage. They need to bring John Ireland and Michael Thompson up from radio ASAP.

The Lakers current TV team is probably the worst combo they've ever had.

I've always been a fan of the Lakers commentators precisely because they've historically been very well trained to keep things somewhat in perspective and fair to the other team. But since Billy Mac replaced Meyers, I feel like the commentator duo has taken a turn towards homerism and annoying traits that make most local broadcasts insufferable.

Still, it's hard to hate Stu if for no other reason than for how much of a relic to a bygone era he is. For color commentating in LA, I'd be hard pressed to think of anyone who could or would do a better job

I think Stu is fine in small doses. Bad play-by-play partners these recent years have amplified his role and he has trouble filling that spotlight. Back when Chick was at the mic Stu stuck to his knitting and was ok. He has improved a lot since then but the demands on him have outpaced his growth.

He does, btw, eventually let go of the repetitive phrases. He used to say something about 'moving your feet' about 20 times per game and he has backed off that one.

Stu has some very insightful comments about how bigs should play. His recent mention of 'jumping even when you can't get the rebound' to avoid the other player coming down on you was an example. Unfortunately he seems to think we don't know that shoving with your hands draws more fouls than a hip check :freak2: If he had a stronger partner he wouldn't feel the need to reach so much - he could say the insightful stuff and omit the dead obvious crud.

Lately Stu has been talking as if its his job to coach the other team's bigs. Tips on how those opponents can play better and 'what they need to do.' Perhaps he has to be careful giving tips on the Laker bigs because it will get back to them and weird the relationship. Either way, he has been coming across as if we want to hear what the bad guys 'need to do' to beat us.

Anyway, I'll keep him if only for the occasional personal stories related to his old days with Chick. I used to go to the forum and stop by to talk to Chick after the game (he sat in a perch halfway up the stands in the middle of the fans so you could do that then). Anybody who can tell chick stories can sit in the second chair on Laker broadcasts as far as I'm concerned.

I think similar. He's part of the fabric of being a Laker fan at this point. He's one of the only ones that has been around since the "good 'ol days", and it's awesome to have a long time announcer like that. Not a homer, and I'm good with that. Our announcers get more compliments from opposing fans than probably any other announcing team.
