Steve Kerr's Replacement Named (AA's Not Exactly Happy)

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Of course they chose the one guy that I did not want to be Marv's analyst. They had to choose the one that grates my nerves more than any other NBA Analyst. Yes, even more than Doug Collins. Reggie Miller is now working as an analyst for TNT full-time now and we'll be paired with Marv Albert for the duration of the 2007-2008 Season.

It is an interesting pairing on more than one angle, but mainly because Marv called some of Reggie's biggest games including the 25 point 4th quarter against the Knicks during the 1994 playoffs. I was praying that they'd force Chuck Barkley into the booth, but Reggie does have some experience and he's still learning the trade. Working with Albert could only help him.

I'll delve more into this during my NBA Announcing Previews coming up any day now, but we'll see how this works out. Reggie isn't exactly Mark Jackson, but he's definitely not Steve Kerr. Damn you Kerr! Why did you have to leave??? Why?!

Update: I forgot to mention that Mike Fratello is with them as well and it appears the 2nd team will remain Kevin Harlan and Doug Collins.

8 Comments:

He went to UCLA, his sister went to USC, and New York still hates him.

He's a close to a "sure thing" (in terms of getting gigs because who he is--not his talent) as you're gonna get in broadcasting these days.

Kerr is not just good in real life, he's quite apt on NBA Live as well.

It's amazing that Reggie is a multi-millionaire but still has never been to a dentist.

Is that a Larry Bird fan or a Rory Sparrow fan?

Thanks Brett...that was in the press release as well, but I forgot to add it in. Also, how am I "way late"? They released the information last night around 8pm.

They shoulda got Chuck. In all seriousness I think Reggie is better in studio than he is courtside, but I don't mind this move. Do you guys remember when they tricked Reggie into singing UCLA's fight song on air??? Good times...good times...
