I don't like when he says "people don't realize" about something that is conventional knowledge. And he has default analysis when he's too lazy to follow the nuances of the action, like "they're settling for too many jumpers." But the league is littered with color guys who can't pronounce names, or string together a sentence for that matter, and instead of doing research on opposing players they just openly disparage them to satisfy their bias. Leo doesn't exactly shine as a great analyst, but he's not nearly among the worst imo. And Eric Smith is a total yes man. He'd probably still be making excuses for BC.

If I could choose Matt's partner it'd be PJ Carlesimo. Look at how much Matty D adores him!

I'll take E. Smith anyday over Leo.

Why do you keep saying that? Is it supposed to mean something I'm not aware of or are you actually referring to colored people?

P.S. Leo sucks balls.

It has nothing to do with one's skin tone, it referrers to "color commentary".
Color commentator - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A color commentator (color analyst, analyst) is a sports commentator who assists the play-by-play announcer, often by filling in any time when play is not in progress.[1][2] The color analyst and main commentator will often exchange comments freely throughout the broadcast, when the play-by-play announcer is not describing the action.

I see. Then I would have to agree, aside from the ones on big channels they don't really seem to know much about other teams non-main players.

I agree 100%, Leo sucks and we should get a new commentator. The games are way more exciting when Matt & Jack call it. Leo is afraid of saying a lot of things whereas Jack isn't. Also I noticed after every play Leo just says something boring because he feels he has to. The commentary is awkward when its Matt and leo

LEO is best suited as a pre,post game and half time analyst. He has good insight. I don't like him as a play by play analyst. When Raps games are on TSN,I don't mind Leo. On Sportsnet,I do mind. He doesn't need to be fired imo and petition for that is silly. Would like a former Raptor as an analyst tho.

Leo should just shut the fuck up and stop droning on and on and on and on and on and then he should shut up instead of droning on and on and on and on.

Less is more and absolutely nothing would be nirvana.

I would like to see someone replace Leo, though i know it's never going to happen. If you guys had to pick someone other than Jack to replace him, who would you guys choose?

I've been watching Raptors forever now and Leo has never really bothered me just as people were bothered with Chuck a lot.

What I'm not not getting here?

Hell yeah. Now there's a petition I would sign. Taxes don't bug me, government legislation doesn't very much affect me... dead serious... but this... this I can get behind. He is boring. He doesn't know the game in depth. He doesn't talk about anything that isn't obvious. This fucker has to go. The team can stay can lose 4 in a row, but nothing is worse than listening to this boring piece of junk while it happens. All Jack or ANYONE else. I would give the money to moremilk before Leo.

Like somebody already mentioned, not being fond of someone is one thing, calling for their job is something else.
