Anywho, Fitz was in Houston yesterday so I assume he'll be calling today's game too. Here's one thing about our broadcasters though: they are not biased. If they think the refs called a bad charge, they'll say so even if it was in the Warriors favor. JB is really insightful as well.

Bob Fitzgerald is the Warriors' play-by-play guy. He's REALLY good, despite local fans griping about homerism - take a listen to League Pass sometime and compare Bob's homer tendencies against San Antonio, the Clippers, the Heat... It's really quite tame, compared to these actual homers. Bob was the play-by-play man of the USA 2012 Olympic basketball team, so clearly he's got a great reputation.

The "other guy" was Glen Kuiper, who was called in as an emergency sub during Bob's family related absences. He's the A's play-by-play guy and he only has a job because his brother is an Emmy-award winning commentator for the Giants.

Fitz will be the voice of the Warriors for a LONG time. I see Jim having 5 more years, tops.


What!? Don't say that, man. I love JB. What makes you say that though? Just a guess or do you know something?

Just a guess, really. Jim is going on 69 and this season marks a quarter century he's provided color commentary for the Warriors.

You gotta believe these try-outs Tom Tolbert has been conducting with Roye on the radio side are in anticipation of Jim's fairwell tour. Barnett's also been on one-year contracts the past 5 seasons, making his departure seem like its gonna be any day now.


OhHH YEEaHHH. I remember now. I recall 2 (or more) seasons ago that Fitz got a 5-year deal or some **** and JB was only getting a year. I didn't get why that was happening but now it makes more sense. But fuk, man, that's gonna suck. I seriously will go to a Warriors game just to big him farewell. I really like him.

So Tim Roye is the leading candidate to replace JB?

Tom Tolbert is, from what I understand.

Roye will be doing radio til he's cold and gone, with that face.

Another blowout on the road. Great if the team could play that way at home.

Tolbert's pretty lame, I gotta say. He plays toward the cool-guy, valley accent persona way too much for a guy that isn't exactly old, yet clearly isn't young anymore. What was that old Doctor Evil line? "There's nothing more pathetic than an aging hipster."... Tolbert to a T.

I'd MUCH rather have them try to land Mullin, Richmond, Hardaway, Baron Davis... Any former player of merit. Tolbert's perspective never lands for me because he was a career scrub. At least Jim had a couple 16 point years as a starter. If it weren't for the gimmick that is Nellieball, Tolbert wouldn't have had a career.
