I miss Spero even more than Joel. Spero was the guy I pegged to be our broadcaster for a VERY long time. I like John Ireland, I have met him, and think he's a great guy and I love "Mason and Ireland", mainly because of John, but let's face it, Spero had a MUCH BETTER radio and speaking voice than Ireland, and really was someone who could have been the new "golden voice" of the franchise. That would have been my one question to Jim Buss.
"Why did you let Spero Dedes go, when he was arguably your best play by play announcer the franchise has had since the late Chick Hearn? In addition, why did you not allow Spero the opportunity to create more revenue streaming endeavors on different broadcasting networks?". I would love to have heard Ireland's reaction, after I said that
