sportscenter has gone down. i mean if i wanted highlights from other than the NBA, ill go there but NBA Gametime while so predictable and boring is still better than sportscenter.

however ESPN is still good with live sports. Maybe the ABC crew sucks in their NBA Coverage compared to TNT but everything else sucks in comparison to TNT's coverage.

I still enjoy whatever 30 for 30 episode is showing, X-Games coverage but other than that everything else is shit. Sportscenter especially. hate the way they waste like 15 mins on a big event letting every analyst in the building having a turn on their 2 cents.

How do Boston fans feel about Bill Simmons? One of the most annoying personalities on ESPN imo.

SC was good in the 1980s and early 1990s. The espn2 highlight show was nice too. That channel had a good show for a couple years.

SC jumped the shark in 1996. When the show made an appearance in a Hootie and the Blowfish video ESPN really got full of itself. The SC commercials started around that time, maybe a year later. By the way, those commercials, while funny, are quite useless. Really, what is the point?

Sportscenter commericals were around prior to 1996, but only by a few years. I actually felt Sportscenter still ran a good ship throughout the 90's. The catch phrases may have become a little much, but they still stuck to showing the good stuff (that is, highlights) in an orderly and effective fashion.

As for the point of the This is Sportscenter ads? We're living it. How did Sportscenter ever become such a big deal? What helped really propel it into the stratosphere? What helped draw attention to ESPN's flagship morning program? Sportscenter commercials.

They are WAY TOO football dominant. Now that baseball is bak, they will cover it to death. They treat basketball like it doesn't exist outside of NY, Miami, OKC, and Los Angeles.

I agree with this. The 90's was the golden era of ESPN and Sportscenter. It was still very strong in the early 2000's as well. ESPN is still useful because of all their live games, but channels such as NBA TV, MLB Network, and NFL Network have limited their importance, at least for me.

If they could cover basketball like they do during the playoffs (fantastic coverage) espn would be a lot better.
