Default TrueHoop: A chart of local TV broadcasting homerism

This is an interesting chart rating teams respective broadcasters. Chuck's rated as having relatively high basketball IQ, but also rates quite high with homerism.

Check out "Red" Kerr and Tommy Heinsohn.

Mark Jackson is objective? When I've heard him on YES, he's been nothing BUT a homer.

I've watched Bulls games on WGN and I don't think Red Kerr's that bad.

The worst are the two gearboxes that do the Clippers games.

Why do you say that SJ? I thought Hubie was bang on with his assessments of this team. He was pretty critical and rightfully so.

Some of it WAS bang on.

It's just how he approached it.

I think he was a dick.

I just think its because he's old school, says it like it is and doesn't care. I thought of everyone here, you'd appreciate that the most. Seeing how your not afraid calling a spade a spade.

Not really the problem,

he was fixated upon showing where Detroit was succeeding and Toronto failing. There was one offensive-defensive succession where toronto scored on a great play to the rim where he applauded the Detroit defence, then on the way back down, toronto swarmed on defence and caused the Detroit forward to throw up a ridiculous airball, boxed out and grabbed the board, and he applauded the OFFENCE!

I'm not crying, Toronto is crappy lately, but he was overboard because he simply NEVER see's them play. He;; he is STILL calling Bargnani BARNYARNI... its brutal.

Those are apparently the "creme de la creme" of team broadcasters.
