    Default Rex Chapman is horrible.

    Rex Chapman should not do anymore games.

    He's horrible. "Jermaine" Jones or "Jumaine" Jones does not play for the Pacers.

    I guess, I can some it up in one word: Annoying.

    he was a hell of a clutch shooter, though....

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Worse: Ricky Pierce. WTF?

    Luckily he only does the first round of the playoffs on TNT.

    And luckily he (hopefully) has millions saved up from his NBA career.

    He was absolutley horrid! He always stumbled over words, never made any sense and wouldn't let anyone else talk.

    One of those announcers needs to stop doing commentary. Now.

    I had to change the channel to WB4 just to avoid any more of his lack of basketball knowledge.

    is that any better than Jack Ramsey calling CWebb "Chris Wallace" the entire game?

    And Ramsey has been an NBA analyst for 15 years......

    Yeah, he was pretty bad. Almost as bad as Bill Cartwright...

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    At least with Ramsey, you can blame it on old age and senility.

    How did he get the Dr. prefix? Does the old fart have a PhD. or something? LMAO.

    Well, I commend Rex for trying his best and for pulling his weight--even if some thought it was too much. At least he tried; I hope he doesn't read our board...I'll give him another chance, or few.

    Yeah, that Dr. Jack fellow really needs to step down.

    This Rex guy just talks annoying, and screws up his facts. I liked the "An- An- An- Ant- Anthony Johnson with the big shot."

    Dr. Jack is still the most annoying in my opinion.

    "Yeah...and he can shoot the ball JD".
    "Yeah...he's a good passer JD".
    "Yeah...he can dribble the ball JD."

    He was bad with names and that is the minimum he should be correct on. But I think he was right on with the above comment and he had some good observations. I find John Thompson annoying though.

    I can't believe we have a whole topic dedicated to annoying commentators and no one has mentioned Bill Walton yet.

    Has anyone noticed Bill takes an anti-Pacer stance almost every time he speaks?

    I heard that too, and almost mentioned in the game thread. It was embarrassing.

    Cro has cracked/bruised ribs.

    That was my point... he's totally ignorant of what's happening on our team. He read a couple articles by national authors and just showed up for the game.

    Thompson corrected him once then said James Jones did something right after Rex had called him Jumain three or four times. He did finaly get it after JJ got that block.

    Rex broke the camel's back when he compared Walker to Magic because he made a pass to a wide open trailer. Of course, this was after Walker made a "great steal" by hacking Jax on the arm.

    ......I wasnt aware a "trailer" could be standing directly under the basket.....

    I'm not sure you can fault Rex 100%.

    Why wasn't the producer in his headset correcting him? It was obvious that even the producer didn't know JJ's name.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
