    Default We have to put up with Dick Vitale again

    Dickie V is a part of ESPN's draft night coverage

    In case you forget all he did last year was complain, scream and shout about the high school players and the foreign born players being taken before the college players. It was obnoxious last year and it will be worse this year.

    Dick you need a new act.

    I am dreading it already.

    I actually enjoy DV. He speaks with huge enthusiasum for the game and even when he complained last year about college players not getting their due he still had good things to say about the HSers and the foreginers, baby.

    Vitale is the most knowledgeble college basketball analyst there is. But when it comes to HS players of foriegn-born kids, he has no clue what hes talking about, and just rants. ed:

    I GUARENTEE we're going to hear about Joe D taking Darko over Camello about 32857281 times tomorrow.....

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

    Jay Bilas is by far the most knowledgeable college basketball analyst around, and if you don't believe me you'll see Thursday night.


    Kstat, Dick Vitale was on NBATV's draft preview earlier this evening and he was already railing against Darko being taken over Mello, you would have been proud of Fred Carter of all people sticking up for the pistons by saying id they got mello they don't get Sheed and no way they win the championship. Prince is a better fit then Mello.

    Speaking of Fred Carer, the best NBA insider IMO, why the hell don't ESPN have him on more? And more chats?

    Sorry, that's way off topic.

    All of Vitale's enthusiasm doesn't hide the fact that he's just a loud mouthed idiot.

    I know UB and a few others remember the season in the early eighties where he was the Pacers' color analyst on TV. Not only did the Pacers suck, but we had to spend the entire time listening to him practice talking about diaper dandies during an NBA game.



    Of course, the play-by-play guy that year was the guy from the Reds (Eddie Doucette?) and he didn't know jack :censor: about basketball, either.

    ed:
    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

    Maybe Dick will cry about how kids should stay in school like Duhon did oops... I mean uh...

    That kid lost his winning Powerball ticket didn't he? Of course, _some_ second round guys end up doing pretty well for themselves...
