Default Is there any color analyst better than Van Gundy?

This guy is the best. Intelligent, fluid and funny. Perfect at what he does. I hope no one ever hires this guy as a coach. I could listen to this guy for years. So what do you guys think? Is there anyone close to or better than JVG at what he does?

I like JVG as a commentator, but I think he should go back to coaching, a team like the Nuggets could really use him.

i remember watching rockets games he always looked like he was depressed and in a bad mood at press conferences and interviews when he was head coach so i was really puzzled when he was hired as a commentator, but he's turned out to be pretty good imo.

yup. jvg's wit is severely underrated. walton is fun to listen too, but hes a bit bombastic. jvg's humor is more subtle.

I'm even warming up to Jackson, just because it's funny to watch JVG dominate him and then watch Mark try to recover. Those two and Breen remind me of the Marv/Bill/Snapper trio. They aren't quite as good though, because Marv is obviously better than Breen and the chemistry between Bill and Snapper was terrific. Still, out of the four colour guys I just mentioned, JVG is probably my favourite. Bill and Snapper were just hysterical though.

I disagree with all of you. I think JVG is brutal, as is Jackson, and ABC's broadcast in general.

IMO JVG makes ridiculous statements, bad exaagerations and judgements, and tries hard to be funny (often not) where he distracts from the game.
Just awful, and it is surprising to me y'all like him so much.

Give me Doug Collins or Hubie Brown anyday.
