    Well if you believe the media:

    "The New York Post first reported Tuesday that Michaels, 79, would be left off the broadcasting team amid growing criticism over his lack of enthusiasm while calling games."

    because the man has been the cure for insomnia. boring, monotone, zero enthusiasm. he has been calling games like he wished he was doing anything else. and he's raking in 7 figs per game.

    he has been stealing money all season and NBC put a stop to it

    I was never a fan of his announcing style. May have been riding the crest of his "do you believe in miracles" Olympic hockey game call all of these years.

    If any of you guys want to look at a high profile college BB game look at the GU UConn game. It’s in Seattle not in the kennel. GU has only two 6 foot guards that play all 40 mins. It’s is college ball and any one or team can get hot with the threes. But GU is over matched here. Do some research I don’t know that the speed is but if it’s close I’d think about it if I still gambled

    Walton used to be good. Now he's legit the worst announcer around. He's high as a kid half the time, rambles, and rarely lends any insight. So, so terrible.
