Or it could be that when people see them they have no idea what they have to do with basketball. With Smith and Walton, you get a loud abrasive black man whose usually wrong and a white man who no one can decide is right or wrong because no one has a clue what he's talking about 90% of the time. I'm not sure if that's easier to connect with, but they leave an impression (unfortunately it's usually a bad one).
