    I didn't mind Bob and Gil so much. But please, please, please, keep guys like Fletcher away from doing any analyzing/coloring of this team. That would be jumping from the frying pan straight into the skillet. Can you imagine? He'd have a silly trade idea thrown up on the screen each and every game.

    We had quite a few interesting conversations as we pondered and navigated the nightly canopy.

    If Fletcher gets put on anything I think I'll watch games on mute. I don't think I could take 2 hours 2-3 times per week of him ranting about decisions he deems to be bad or hearing him say "Told ya so" ad nauseam. No thanks.

    this. I had no problem with them. I watch the games to see the team. I really don't need much analysis as I already know a ton about the NBA and its players. They brought a fan feel to commentating. Some analysis with a lot of reaction to the big plays. Farewell Bob and Gil

    I completely agree. If Fletcher is involved in anyway then this is a BIG step backwards. That guy is clueless. I would hate to have to listen to him during the broadcast. Losing Gerry V sucks. I thought him and shawn kelley would have been great as the TV commentators.

    quick examples from memory: (luther head) "that's a heads up play right there", (foul on juju) "not julian, that's not wright"


    it was funny the first one i heard but after listened to that stuff for years it just got old. but i agree with some of you Fletcher would be a lot worse. that dude really doesnt know anything.

    I had no real problems with Bob and Gil and I don't like to see people lose their jobs, but it happens and hopefully they will be replaced with a strong crew.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    They might just go outside the market to fill these roles. There really aren't a lot of "basketball" people in the current New Orleans media pool.

    I'm never excited about hearing about guys that didn't do anything harmful to others losing their jobs. Wish them well.

    Thought Gil was pretty sub-par and annoying as a color commentator. Not very insightful and seemed to think his job consisted mainly of making bad puns and lame jokes instead of analyzing what was going on on the floor. Play-by-play was okay. Hope they bring in a real basketball guy who doesn't take his style cues from the moronic chuckleheads on ESPN.

    Please, Please, Please>> I beg of you Tell me that you guys have NOT actually heard Mackerals name brought up & That you only tossed out the fact that you would appreciate if the TEAM DID NOT add Mackeral to the Broadcast booth

    Am I the only one who wanted to throw up a little bit when reading this:

    The Hornets announced last week that Times-Picayune columnist John DeShazier has been hired to become the team's radio analyst.

    I just told my daughter about the Hornets cutting Bob and Gil and the first thing she said was "OH MY!! IN YOUR MUG!!" We both just laughed really hard at that. This is where that came from. She and I were at this game and wondered what Bob and Gil had to say about this dunk. When we watched the replay and heard this we cracked up.
