    No comparison as Rebecca Harlow always seemed forced and unnatural while Brooke comes across very natural and informed. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the nationals grab her up.

    I have absolutely no clue why Calabro and Hurd are hated on by so many. I find them great

    This forum tends to embrace the negative.

    Calabro, is actually starting to get to me. I was glad last night when Hurd corrected him when he said we had a great third quarter... as the third quarter was beginning. He misspeaks alot and I hope Hurd keeps calling him out on it, because I don't think he is aware of how often he mispeaks. Scores, minutes, quarters, I hear him wrong quite often.

    I enjoyed Mike and Mike, but I think Calabro and Hurd have improved and still better than many of the ones for other teams which are bad.

    I listened to a national broadcast the other day with Marv Albert and he made many mistakes during the day and he's suppose to be one of the best.

    Made me wonder last night. How often to other announcers flub up, cause I don't watch many other games. I remember Kevin in Seattle and he seemed to be much sharper than he is now, but then maybe that's false memory.

    Dont get me wrong. IM still in the minority around here and think we still upgraded. Really the only thing I miss are Rices cookey stories at times. Barrett was great, but bland.

    Like Hurd, don't like Calabro.
    Please go back to Mike and Mike. Put Hurd with Wheels.
    Calabro is a nice guy and has a good broadcaster's voice but he makes too many errors. He also has a lot of fluff in his broadcasting.

    I don't care for Marv but it's because of his incredible behavior in a NY hotel with a prostitute.

    I don't pay much attention to either one of them.

    The only sad thing about tonight's game with Boston was that Doris Burke is clearly so much better than C & H, that it's appalling.

    C & H are fine, but M & M, and DB are actually very good.

    I am a Calabro fanboy as far back as his days in Seattle. Sure his blooper reel is growing but he is at least enthusiastic and has some good catch phrases. No one could celebrate a shawn kemp "two handed tomahawk jam" like KC.

    Kevin Calabro did it again in the TOR Mar 1 game, incompetently failing to recognize that in a game with 2 guys named Leonard who have distinctive first names Meyers and Kawhi that he should refer to them by their first names. After all these games, Kevin can't learn Meyers name to allow us to understand who he is talking about. With failing to call out, give the numbers, or explain the fouls and his hit or miss reporting of substitutions, his mistakes, and his non-game babbling, he is annoying.

    Perhaps nothing is as annoying as those awful Intensive Outsider ads that they have inflicted on us so many times (they have driven me away as I bristle when I hear those guys voices), but still quite an annoyance. Let's replace Kevin Calabro.
