    Leo hasn't really adjusted his style since the SkyDome days. He still speaks like the audience is watching basketball for the 1st time.

    As a colour commentator, he needs to provide more of HIS opinions, go on a few rants, point out what he likes AND dislikes. He's too even-keeled for this day and age. Needs to show a wider spectrum of emotions.

    I'm sure he's capable of it. His twitter account can get a little spicy (by his standards).

        One of the highlights of the Melbourne game (other than the apparent Norm Powell resurgence) was when Jack quipped " some of the guys who leave Syracuse early take a pay cut". No comment from the other two.

          I love Jacko. His chemistry is so good with Matt, especially when they start insulting each other. Jack's breakdowns are some of the best, especially from a broadcast side.

          He rarely stutters, knows what he's breaking down as it happens, and he's incredibly unique with that good ol' Brooklyn slang on the mic.

          Leo, on the other hand.... For god's sakes, I fall asleep 45 seconds in the first quarter. Stutters, struggles to find the correct adjectives to describe what's happening... I'd rather have Sam Mitchell on the broadcast, lol.
          Leo is super monotone and he comes off as an arrogant rich dickhead

              He'd be more suited working some corporate gig than as a commentator

                They tried to groom Morris Peterson but soon found out when the camera is on he has trouble forming sentences

                  I remember him being a guest a few times I think. That's relatable, as much as I roast these guys I could never be commentator as I am very camera shy

                      Mo Pete is pretty bland, but Smitch is okay. I prefer seeing former NBA players or coaches who still have some street cred in the league. It would be nice to have a commentator who is getting some inside scoops from time to time using their NBA relationhips. McGrady's become a pretty good analyst. Bring back T-Mac?

                        That'll be tough trying to convince him to leave ESPN -- he's had it good there with The Jump, too. Love that show.

                        Vince would be absolutely fantastic when he's done his career.

                          Reggie Miller sucks bad. Hes condescending and arrogant. Theres a halftime raptor analyst guy i think on sportsnet havent noticed him in awhile. Mid/late 50s hes got grayish hair and a typical CTV helmet head haircut. Dave something? Im bad with names 😖

                            T-Mac got a monotone voice, I would fall a sleep in 15 minutes.

                            Vince Carter (in a year or two) or Anthony Parker would be better.

                                Jack just seems likke sideshow Bob to me. His voice is grating and I've hear all his stories. He's like th eweird uncle that you're glad you only see at Christmas.

                                I don't mind Matt but Leo doesn't add anything. I can't stand Sam Mitchell, just too condescending for me. I guess listening to broadcasters is all relative tot he listener and what they like.

                                The same argument goes on for Blue Jays fans over Buck and Tabby. Generally, I prefer a professional broadcaster with a great voice over former players. The exception is Blair and Barker.....
