    Does anyone else get annoyed when Chris Webber is on TV commentating? He's such an idiot and he's annoying. For instance, he was just on TNT saying Tony Parker was "regulated" to the bench.

    He clearly doesn't know any words with more syllables and he shouldn't be on TV.

    Pop is a regulator. He did what he does best, regulate.

    Does he make grammatical errors like that often?

    He wasn't exactly "a poor black kid" growing up. He grew up in a fairly well off suburb and went to a $30,000 private school that Steve Ballmer and Robin Williams attended.

    He’s still relatively new to being a commentator/show host. He has some bad moments but he’ll be fine after a little more experience.

    No need to start a thread over it.

    Not sure how I feel about his commentating, but hes a great on screen analyst. Should replace Shaq or Kenny on Inside the NBA.

    Can't remember if it was Eric Riley or Michael Talley that signaled TO from the bench.

    Disturbs me to think that was 25 yrs ago :eek:

    He's been this for years now. He's awful and yes I do need to start a thread over it.

    I actually think Chris is decent. I'd take him any day of the week over a functioning retard like Jalen Rose.

    Whenever I’m watching Jalen Rose talk it’s like he’s trying to figure out what he wants to say while he’s talking. With most people it’s
    1. Idea
    2.optimal expression of idea depending on audience and context
    With Rose it’s
    1. Talk
    2. Hopefully idea will spring out of rambling incoherence

    Outside of being a racist and bitter man, I like Rose's commentary. I don't mind Chris Webber either. When these guys are offered jobs it's specifically for player, behind the scenes insight. Being well spoken or intelligent is just a bonus for the networks but not a requirement. Most of these guys aren't even high school educated. They stopped learning as soon as it became apparent that they were elite talents.

    And LOL @ replacing anyone on TNT. Those guys are great. It's just like a room of really good guy friends shooting the shit about basketball and roasting each other mercilessly. It's perfect.

    Reggie isn't bad at all. He's magnitudes better than Chris.
