    These Pelicans announcers are the most un-homer announcers I've ever heard on a game. I thought they were actually part of the Spurs camp.

    Tommy Heinsohn does get a little ridiculous after a quarter.

    I don't watch too many games, but I recall the Mavs (and maybe Bulls?) having pretty awkwardly biased announcers.

    Take a little time off looking up stats and reading Grantland articles to have a round, smoke a cigar, bang a hooker, or do what you do to have a happy new year, you motherfuckers. HNY!!

    Ugh, why would Bledsoe kick that ball out to the perimeter when he had that open layup...?

    happy new year everyone!

    poor suns team, hope they draft well in the late lottery.

    my money's on the spurs team for the most homerific. sean elliot is straight-up unlistenable. thunder announcers are also not very good about it

    haha would be incredible

    i wonder if he's literally the 1st player to do what he's done. gone from the 30th pick in the draft into a defensive specialist into a player way over-his-head on offense to a great 2nd option and holding his own as a top option. seriously wtf??? his development is insane. paul george was similar but he was the 10th pick!

    His criticism of the referees' calls is often absurd.

    Duncan is actually worse than Parker. About the only thing I dislike about his game.

    Spurs certainly struggling these days. Leonard really proving his value and inching closer to that max contract.

    Kawhi and danny green saving the franchise. I think Cory Joseph has a solid place in their future too

    Splitter too. Anderson looks servicable. Mills and Diaw will be around a while.

    I don't think we'll see a complete re-load like the-uh- LAKERS BABY LAKERS.

    well it'd be hard to outdo the lakers but when timmy and manu retire in a year or two the spurs better hope pop sticks around for a few more. otherwise you have an aging tony parker who misses 15-20 games a year, a potential star in kawhi (probably not a superstar), and not much else. all those players you listed are good depth and max out as average starters. don't think that team'd make the playoffs. of course the spurs draft like crazy so who knows who they'll unearth by then.

    This has always been the knock and they've managed.

    Pop sticking around would be idea, but they guy is getting old. Maybe he has a successor selected. He'd be harder to replace than anyone there.

    Pop just signed a multiyear extension last summer. And the Spurs have only missed the Playoffs 2 years in their existence since 1973.
