    I go with the Pistons announcers except for when we play the NY teams.

    Former Piston!

    Milwaukee is horrible. We really need to power rank the away announcers.

    We are so blessed to have George. And Mark and Rick on the radio.

    I can't stand Kelser anymore. I really don't like Jake Chapman on the radio either.

    I like kelser. He's a nice guy and gives the other team credit when due. Also, our guys are honest about the calls.

    That is huge. It is ok to be a homer, but you don't want to alienate the fans of the other team.

    It always impresses me when the away announcers know our players (or take the time to actually read their one pager).

    And equally UNimpressive when opposing broadcasters have absolutely no clue about the guys on our team.
    I remember the two or three occasions last year when Greg Monroe actually hit a ten-footer, opposing announcers would say things like "Monroe can hit that shot. You have to step out on him".

    There are not that many active players in the NBA. Say 30 teams x 11 players = 330. Every announcer should automatically know the top 3 on every team. So, you have to research about 200 players to sound knowledgeable. If that is your job, I'd expect that you'd do the research.

    Almost every time Dre has scored from the post this year, the away announcers express shock. He's leading the league in post scoring.

    I've learned about a lot of guys just by playing fantasy basketball.
    If I was the director for game telecasts, I'd set up a fantasy hoops league for my broadcast crew.

    I couldn't pick Isaiah Cannan out in a police lineup but I know he's a PG who rarely dishes the rock and shoots a ton of threes.
