You must be listening to someone else? JVG never "tries hard" to be funny. You must be thinking of someone else. JVG never tries to hit you over the head with a sledgehammer in the humor department like a lot of other commentators do.

Most of the JVG hate comes from guys who have either fanboy crushes or schoolgirl hate for certain players. He is good but I will always be partial to Bill Walton. "Throw it down, big man throw it down"! Is the GOAT catch phrase.

It is just my opinion.

I often hear JVG try to force comedy and it is awkward. All that self-deprecation and talking about himself in general takes away from the game IMO.

They are like the NBA version of MNFootball only better. I swear ESPN must tell their conmentators to talk a lot about themselves.

But anyway, we just disagree. One man's force is another man comedy.

I think Walton sucks too.

Good:
Stockton
Brown
Collins
Marv
Kerr

Bad:
Jackson
Van Gundy
Walton
Miller

Okay:
Snapper
Fratello


I am just not a fan of these commetators who make ridiculous exaagerated statements like Walton and JVG; it is too jokey and takes away from the game IMO.

Once again, it is subjective.

Jackson brings him down though. Jackson has about 5 things he says, all of which are cliches, over and over.

Give me Doug Collins or Hubie Brown anyday.
Agreed.

Bill Walton is the best. I remember watching games and thinking, "I want whatever he's smoking." This guy can turn a yes/no question into a six minute monologue and in the end we all forget what the question was.

I like JVG but Walt Frazier is a better color commentator for me.

I'm a fan, but there are several I prefer over him for the following reasons:

Hubie Brown - Talks like the NBA is a fraternity. Always using possessive nouns like "we" and phrases "that we got." Makes it feel very exclusive and something I want to join.

Walt Clyde Frazier - The best ever. No question.

Ian Eagle and Kelly Trepuika - Best combo ever when they were around

Jay Bilas - Always fun to listen to. Breaks the game down methodically delivers very succinct points.

i cant stand JVG. he makes the most pointless, stupid comments.

when JT was wavin his arms tryin to pump up the crowd today, he was like "I dont get why players do that, blah blah blah." he always makes stupid comments like that which he thinks is funny, but their not.
