This is why I apologized in advance.
I will miss Victor Howell on the sideline. He does his job well, is respectful of the players, does not ask dumb questions, does his job. Now, we get a bimbo roaming the sidelines asking dumb questions. Just great. Meyers is a good get. Thank God, my mute button will get some relief.
YES, Joel Meyers is doing the games! I love this guy. You will love him. He is super knowledgable about the game and always does his homework. You may have seen him do some summer league games! I watched him for several years do the lakers telecasts. Awesome pickup. He is as knowledgable and as smooth a play by play announcer as there is.
I don't know anything about Davis Westley though. Anyone know if he is any good?
Also, a question.
The channel the Hornets are being broadcast on, fox sports southwest, which I think they are changing the name of to fox sports new orleans- is that channel going to available on directtv? In HD?
Gotta start thinking about getting everything ready for October...
If you get the current Fox Sports Southwest and you are considered to be in the Hornets TV market, you will get Fox Sports NO. The Hornets games are the only change. Other than that, we will get the same Fox Sports SW feed.
I don't know if you guys watched the entire interview, but it was nice to learn that Dell first met Ryan Anderson while playing pick up ball in Sacramento while Ryan was just 15 years old. Crazy stuff.
Nah, I wasn't messin with ya. I know he was a bball player, but I've never seen his work as an announcer. That's why I asked. Announcers that were former players come a dime a dozen. But, yeah, I am a new fan too, that's for sure. I don't know what everyone else seems to take for granted as common knowledge around here, but I'll catch on. I guess I am so out of the loop I'm excited to see what X can do this year ;)
Hate to see someone lose their job (especially a job as great as these) ...But, I am excited about the upgrade. Sure, I'm curious to see how Wesley does, but i think the 2 guys in the balcony on the Muppet's could have done better than Bob and Gil. I never really enjoyed their schtick, and after a while I came to dread it. Bob was such a unbelievable jinx....Truthfully, I had been calling for their heads for years....
I have been waiting to make this posts for years......
So Is Gerry V still going to have his radio show?
Guys, it comes down to this...Gerry V and the other guys have huge ties to the Charlotte Hornets. It looks like Benson is just completely cleaning house and getting rid of all of the old guard. New owner, new name, new start. I love Gerry V, but I understand what Benson is doing and I love it.
David Wesley is one of my favorite Hornets of all time. I am looking forward to seeing how well he handles this newly acquired position.
