^I only hated Stu because I always thought he was being a A** to Billy Macfor no reason. I believe early on they didnt get along so it reflected in their chemistry. Now, I think they have settled into a great groove and I love hearing them calling the game. It isn't like it was with Chick but comparitive to the rest of the league these two guys are up at the top. I know many seem to hate on Billy but I like him with Stu now.

For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Thank you. Ireland has always sucked, we've only gotten used to him. That's the only difference.


Could not disagree more. No one will ever come close to Chick for me, but Ireland is the best Lakers play by play I've heard since Chick passed. Spero was smooth but put me to sleep. Ireland makes the game sound interesting.


Spero would be my choice. Consistent, and without getting too excited, he's able to emphasize a big play. I don't think many guys can do that.

Ireland is as vanilla as it gets for me. I think he lacks personality, and in general sounds uptight on the air. I DO think he observes the game well, but his nasally voice is a far cry from Spero's smooth delivery.

And on his radio show, Ireland is a bit too shameless about being a "shameless Laker apologist"... who happens to be the play-by-play guy. Stunner. Like kenshi suggested, I think his role as a mouthpiece for the organization is too transparent. Ireland, someone who's been watching Laker games courtside for like, 15 years now, can stand to be more opinionated and less of a "company man".

There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Spero was aiiight. Chicky was the man, and I'd gladly take Joel back over Ole McDonalds.

Joel knew his s***

Count me in for Spero too. I still like hearing him comment on football games.

Saw John Ireland at Lakers vs. Mavs. Tried to say what's up and he iced me. What a douche!

Stop acting like a celebrity, Ireland!

Sorry to hear that. Funniest one I've heard was Rob Fukuzaki covering his head at a doctor's office so no one recognizes and bothers him.

Lol what's up with these C-list celebs acting like that? Ronnie Turiaf was the worst. Guy should be glad people recognize him at all.
