    You work for Mr. B and I guess he takes care of you.

    Sideline reporters don't really have to know much about the games though right? They just ask the questions that they are told to ask and report on injuries and such. You can do that can't you?

    Meyers, a two-time Emmy winner, brings more than 20 years of broadcast experience to the organization, most recently serving as television play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Lakers from 2005-2011 which followed two years on the club’s radio broadcast.

    I dunno, I think she's sexier than you, man. That qualifies her to do anything.

    For people who aren't familiar with Meyers.

    Wow, what a great get.

    Wonder how Wesley will do.

    Joel Meyers did Rowing on NBC's Olympics coverage for several Olympics'. He has an unmistakable voice.

    As far as Jennifer Hale, Benson is very high on her. He got her the gig doing sideline for Fox's NFL coverage.

    I agree. And he left L.A. to come here. Who does that?

    Like Nola Hornet, I'm loving the direction.

    Meyers seems really solid. But Wesley has never done this kind of work as far as I can tell.

    Judging by one of the videos posted the Lakers used to be on Fox Sports and now they will be on Time Warner, so he was probably looking for a job and there are only 30 play by play NBA gigs to go around.

    Yeah I'm really curious to see how Wesley does in this position. Hopefully he compliments Meyers.

    But like Bob and Gil, Meyers was hired by the Lakers right? Not the station. Bob and Gil are mostly gone because we have a new owner, not really because we're changing networks. Am I wrong in this assessment? Chances are if the NBA or Shinn still owned the Hornets, Bob and Gil would still be employed here whether we changed networks or not.

    i liked Bob and Gil, i wish them well in the future.

    Ahhh, I almost forgot about Wesley. Hopefully he can tell us what the players are saying on the court, and on the bench with those infamous satellites of his.

    I'm not too concerned about Wesley. I notice a lot of networks like to have an Ex-player of the team doing color commentary. I'm going to assume Wesley will provide firsthand insights only he can provide due to his game/lockroom experience and basketball knowledge. He'll be carried by Meyers until he can get the hang of things. Wesley is an articulate guy who is a pretty bright guy. Before he landed this role, he was an assistant in the D-league.

    This is true. And I agree with the rest of your post.

    My mom went to high school with him in Shreveport. Every time he comes on CBS' College Football broadcasts, she has nothing but scathing things to say about him from back in school. I don't think you're alone in thinking that.
