My Favorite Hoops Commentator

It’s none other than slick-haired Steve Lavin. The former UCLA coach knows the game. Plus he peppers his light but insightful commentary with sly pop culural references. In a game the other day, he talked about a player getting a “Jimmy Durante Special.” I’m not sure exactly what he was trying to say, but anybody who mentions The Schnoz during a b-ball game is more than alright with me.

    One of my favorite Steve Lavin references is one I saw during a replay of a nice pass leading to a basket. He referred to the passer as “sharing the sugar”. He’s great, a worthy successor to Al McGuire if that were possible.
