    If folks were to read this whole thread, they would understand why I rarely start threads of my own. It took a serious turn real quick, with folks going off-topic and either expressing love/hate for Quinn.

    For the record, I like Quinn. But the title of this thread is "Quinn Bucknerisms and Other Funny Moments 2012." Folks should feel free to start a Quinn love/hate/etc thread if they like. But in the spirit of the lightheartedness intended in this thread, IN THIS THREAD, please just contribute your Bucknerisms and funny anecdotes from anything Pacers-related in 2012.

    I know that I and others would love to read about them!

    My thanks to those that already contributed. Some funny stuff!

    I loved Kellogg in his Pacer days, but now he says things that you have to piece together to comprehend.

    For example, on Butler's Andrew Smith during the Butler-Indiana game (paraphrased): "That's two on Smith already, and, you know he's been Dairy Queened 3 times this year already..."

    Dairy Queen = DQ = Disqualification, which in the given context = Fouled Out

    Took my dad and I over a minute to figure that one out.

    Anyway, Quinn is great for us Pacer fans. He often knows what the players are thinking and can be like a coach with a mic. He's not always right, but he's a great color guy for Pacers broacasts, IMO.

    Quinn: "I could tell he was going to miss it to the left as soon as it came off his hand. You see, his arm extended two inches further to the left, and that leftward motion than applied to the basketball, and the basketball then proceeded in a leftward trajectory that caused it to then bounce off the left side of the rim. For all you folks out there, that's what happened."

The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    I've softened on Buckner over the years. I enjoy his joy in broadcasting. He has a rather good understanding of the game, and works well with Denari. He can be a bit of a homer at times, but that's okay.

    I wish someone Youtubed Shaw singing along to Rapper's Delight last game, pretty sure it was just before the 2nd half started. It was a shot of Vogel and you could only see like half of Shaw's head but he was definitely rapping it to someone. And he knew every single word.

    "Smothered Chicken" is my all-time favorite. I have warmed up to him.

    His smattering of contracting two words together are awesome.

    Quinn's okay by me. I like Cro and Clark better, but I'm fine with QB as well, and I enjoy when he giggles.

    As other posters have said, I love the joy QB has in announcing the games.

    Austin is too stiff, but like Sandman said, he's learning at an impressive rate. He's getting better, but I'm not a big fan of his commentary. He doesn't seem to add a whole lot from an explaining the game perspective.

    As far as the thread goes, I live for halftime: "He's getting...BUCKETS!" Hahaha

    4th quarter of the 8 Jan 13 Miami game, Quinn analyzes the Heat's strategic approach:

    "They normally beat you...because they outscore you."

    #hard to argue with #why they pay him the big bucks
    [~]) ... Cheers! Go Pacers!

    Now, that is the distilling of a concept to it's purest form!

    hahaha. Reminds me of an identical gem of a clueless pundit over here commenting on soccer. "Soccer has evolved lately. The teams who scores the most goals, wins the game."
