    I had the game on the radio and Jonsey/Smith are much much better... problem is that its a 5 second delay and if you mute Leo the game comes in like one of those really bad Japanesse Godzilla movies from the 60's. The play is finished as the radio guys are teeing it up. To bad as its way better than the Sportsnet TV crew has been this year.

    Leo has just about run his course.... Its just too much of the same old with him. Syracuse ball... his kids and him at St. Mikes.. the shameless mugging on camera with Devlin on where they are going to eat on upcoming road trips to warmer climates. The inane banter between them is enough to make you want to stop watching.... They don't even bother telling the viewers when teams are getting into foul trouble or approaching the bonus in quarter. Enough already.....SN needs a fresh voice and perspective.

    Honestly, for me its more Matt Devlin is just brutal. He's the one that always brings up Syracuse and pokes at Leo, and disagrees with him and starts the stupid back and forths. Get rid of Devlin, and things will get 100x better.

    And yet, IMO, Matt and Jack work together very well and are good entertainment. But Matt and Leo just seem so forced and fake, not best buddy's obviously.

    I can't stand Leo but I love Matt. He's not too much of a homer and he's exciting. Matt and Jack are one of the best broadcast duos in the league. I'd say Mike Breen and Clyde in New York are my favourite.

    I agree with this. Matt and Jack have better chemistry

    TBH, Smith & Jones should be our main guys. Let Devlin & Rautins go. Both are as bad as Skip Bayless in terms of punchability (Preferably in the face).

    I totally agree. Matt is the worst. Matt and Jack is better than leo obviously but Matts back and forths with jack are just as annoying and he gets too giddy and weird with jack too. Its too bad cause matt does a decent job in baseball when he is just acting professional. With the raptors his insanely annoying personality is given way too much leash.

    Just watch the game on mute.. that's what I do.

    Rautins has been annoying since day 1. As have Matt and Jack.. they are all annoying. But MLSE and the Raptors like them because they're not controversial and get the job done.

    Leo? A homer? He goes out of his way to defend the refs when we're getting jobbed, he even said it was a good call in the Sacramento game.

    A lot of words I'd use for leo, just not homer. But yeah jack is 1000x better

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    I do but not equally. Leo is the worst for me by far. No redeeming qualities.

    Jack is old man lame which can be entertaining at times but annoying at others.

    Matt is too vanilla for me (although I do enjoy vanilla flavour). At least Chuck had some pizzazz.

    Matt and Jack are fun, though not too in-depth with the analysis. I don't care for Leo at all, and Leo + Matt definitely have strained chemistry. Matt tries to make it work but it's tough with Leo, guy takes himself pretty seriously.

    None of them are the biggest homers, some broadcast teams are really, really bad for that.

    I always enjoyed JVG, Mark Jackson, and Mike Breen. Each guy brought something different, good entertainment, good insight, good chemistry. Not everybody is but I'm a fan of Mark Jackson's outros.

    I usually switch stream if it isn't LAL, NY or Boston.
