Mark: You have to be consistent to consistently win in this league.
Thank you, Master of the Obvious.

Mark: Richard Jefferson telling Ray Allen get out of here! This is my house! I got game!
Marv: You alright there?

He's so bad. Kelly Tripucka was a more entertaining color man.

C'mon man, you're being harsh on poor Mark.

Sports announcers have to consistenly use consistent vocabulary to draw a consistent picture of the game.

He better than Kelly

Kelly boring, same voice tone at all times

Mark may not be smarter but he still knows his stuff, just dumb sometimes

Kelly came up with a nickname for Ian, calling him Bird Man, or simply Bird. Once Marv and Mark develop that kinda chemistry I might lighten up. Something about this doesn't feel like the Nets, the new look team with the new broadcast team... it changes the entire experience. Mark seems to be giving general statements, while Ian and Kelly would involve the team.

ex.
Mark: They need to tighten up their defense.
Kelly: The Nets need to tighten up their defense.

Something about Ian & Kelly felt really like they belonged with the team.

And come on, the Marv Albert Show plug? Only on YES!
Funny but a lil' weird for my taste.

Maybe it was all Ian that I was drawn to. He actually made Mark seem a lil' exciting when they worked together. He involved Mark and made him look comfortable. They did get into a lot of stories but that's always fun. Ian & Kelly once went 3 straight games with references to professional wrestlers, I have yet to see that from Marv and Mark.

Are you kidding me? Mark had some great moments tonight!

First of all, you're making those quotes seem bad by not correctly quoting them. It was:

Mark: The Nets playing some great defense right now, but what they had to do is do it consistently. They can't get a stop on one play, and then give an easy lay-in on the next. It has to be consistent. You have to play consistent defense to consistently win in this league.

It may be obvious, but what's so bad about it? It was insightful and definitely not as bad as you made it out to be.

Mark: (after a monster block on Ray Allen by RJ) Richard Jefferson telling Ray Allen get out of here! This is my house! I got game!
Marv: Oh is that what he said?

:biggrin: Now that was funny!

He wasn't perfect, but he wasn't bad like you made him out to be. I can already see chemistry slowly developing between Marv and Mark. Give it time.

I thought he was excellent tonight. I also thought the Sonics announcers were quite good, no homers there.

You think Craig Ehlo is going to go insane when the Sonics visit Cleveland?

Mark Jackson sucks, and I'll have no one making apologies for him. None of his comments are even remotely funny or insightful. He turns his enthusiasm on and off like a light switch. And even when it's on, he sounds blatently disingenuous. The guy just has no charisma. Plain and simple, he dosen't belong on television.

Kelly >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Mark

PS: Ian >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Marv

Mark:

'Look at Krstic run, Kidd rewards him with an easy basket.'
'Look at Allen run, he's rewarded by... and RJ blocks the shot, RJ's rewarded with a block for his hustle.'
'Look at Coach Frank run, he rewarded with some oh nothing.'
'Marv, you know when my dog runs, and sets up good position, I reward him with a doggie treat!'
