    Johnny Quest was my favorite cartoon. i had no idea Race was a leather dude icon until after. I felt in order to honor diversity it would be wrong to change it

    Maybe this is blasphemy, but I prefer the Gus Johnson call on this one.

    Agree, COLD BLOODED is the signature call. Rondeau's is typically great Rondeau, but Gus is the GOAT at calling big moments and buzzer beaters.
    This is as good as Gus would ever get. I'm generally not a fan.

    He's an amazing big moment announcer.

    He's a terrible everyday announcer.

  • Gus Johnson is great at big football moments too:

    I wonder how Nate feels about this. Hope he isn't upset. He was arguably more instrumental than anyone in the rise of UW bball in 2003-2005


    Straight gangsta athlete.

    This is a really good point. There's a real argument that Nate was more important than IT. IT didn't completely separate himself from Nate until his NBA career.

    IT still hasn't separated himself from Nate. He's had one good year.

    He's averaged over 20 ppg with 6 assists three times in his career.

    He's had one great year and at minimum two good years.

    He's been a far superior NBA player to Nate.

    The team he left now has a roster including:
    Kyrie (top 5 PG, maybe top 3)
    Tatum (playing out of his mind as a rookie)
    Brown (Looking like an amazing pick)
    Horford (One of, if not the most underrated players in the NBA)
    Marcus Smart (4th year, 6th overall pick who showed steady improvements in years 1-3)
    Terry Rozier (16th overall pick, in his 3rd year, making a big leap)
    etc etc etc.

    They have 4 holdovers from last season- Smart, Brown, Horford, and Rozier. How they are playing now doesn't have much relation with how good IT was last year.
