This is true. Until I found this forum, the extent of my basketball education was just by osmosis watching games. Hubie does pass on alot of knowledge about basic things during the game:the shot clock, 24 second violations, loose ball fouls, what is a hand check etc.-- the basics to understand and appreciate the game. Some of the ex-player analysts assume that the fans already know that stuff because it's all second nature to them. Charles and Kenny do that alot, but then Ernie reels them back in and translates basketballese for the viewers.
