I really like ESPN's lineup of guys. Rose, Wilbon, Magic, Avery, Bowen, and others. TNT guys get off topic alot (laughing at Barkely more than w/ him). and NBATV bores the hell out of me.

I can't stand the ESPN/ABC crew. I rarely watch their pre-game and halftime shows because they bore me. Plus, they don't have a post-game show. And Mark Jackson is one of the worst NBA commentators I've ever heard. It pains me to listen to him. In my opinion, Jeff Van Gundy is the only good thing about the NBA broadcasts on ESPN/ABC.

The NBA TV crew is OK, nothing special.

I love the guys at TNT. They are pure entertainment. They get off-topic, but you have to remember they're on TV a lot longer than the guys at ESPN/ABC. Sometimes they don't get off air until 2 a.m, so they have to find a way to keep things interesting. I know I wouldn't stay up til 2 a.m if all they did was talk about basketball.

I don't care for Jackson. but I do like the guys i mentioned. TNT guys are entertaining...i guess. you suckered me in.

TNT > ESPN/ABC

The ABC guys are boring, and count me in the minority but I think JVG SUCKS!!! He says something stupid every broadcast. Mark Jackson is a Kobe nut hugger. The TNT guys have their biases too, but they're much more entertaining and more direct in their analysis.

I didn't really like Jeff Van Gundy as a commentator at first, but he's grown on me for some reason.

Maybe it's because Mark Jackson is so bad.

TNT is tops for me.

I like the Breen/Jackson/Gundy crew, but that's it.

College b-ball announcers top them all.
