Best announcer in Football... Correction... in Sports period.

Al Michaels is my favorite.

I like them both, but Gus has the edge I think, I've been saying this to my friends for 2 years now, how can you not get into a game that he's calling, he makes exciting to watch on TV, if only more announcers were like him.

I always liked Madden, but although he doesnt call football games I like Boomer (Chris Berman) in general

I think Joe Starkey was the best.

No one out there better than GUS JOHNSON...he brings it during EVERY tele-cast.

Wait a minute I love Gus too, but come on, Buck and especially Albert are freaking institutions. I mean how about him and Snapper Jones replace Breen, The Dumb Van Gundy Brother, and Mark "I'm Kobe's Boyfriend" Jackson, to do the main NBA coverage, that makes sense, but come on Albert and Buck are great, and Albert is the best NBA announcer in the world.


Joe Buck sucks balls.

Jeff Van Gundy is terrific.

And I like Marv Albert, but Gus Johnson is better.

Buck is solid, what you don't like the guy, cuz he doesn't scream as often as Johnson, or doesn't have a catch phrase like Marv, I mean he's knowledgeable, and keeps you entertained, and as much as I can't stand Troy Aikman for a number of reasons, he's still a good color guy, and goes great with Joe. Yeah probably the best NFL announcer combo or trio is on NBC, but to be fair all the lead dudes for the networks that do NFL games are solid.

Wow Van Gundy is a complete idiot, I mean how do you say things like Pau Gasol should of been All-NBA second team and still have that job, jeez, and the one thing Jeff had going for him is gone. He was always the the first NBA coach in line to stand up to the BS of David Stern and the officials, now what since he's a company man he doesn't say anything shoot, Walton as goofy as he is a good color guy and always gets on the world's worst pro refs.

Is that really so off-the-wall?

Between that and referring to Mark Jackson as "Kobe's boyfriend", methinks that it's pretty obvious where you're coming from.

Let's see, Bosh, Granger, Melo, Duncan, Durant, Lebron, oh wait a minute that means Gasol doesn't make All-NBA 3rd team, come on! You can't say things like that and be taken seriously. Jackson is a complete moron. You also can't say things like when it's all said and done Kobe Bryant will be better than MJ, let alone WHEN SCOTTIE PIPPEN IS SITTING INCHES AWAY FROM YOU! Unless were just gonna forget they say stupid things all the time then fine there great analysts and ABC/ESPN is the best network for basketball (hell NBA TV and TNT are better now yeesh), and Disney is better than freaking NBA and CBS's coverage back in the day, that is if were looking the other way with their incompetence, especially by comparison.

Pau Gasol was absolutely worthy of making the All-NBA 2nd team last year. He should have made the 2nd team at center instead of Yao Ming.
