After every play good or bad...

Stu: Well, he should have done this. He should have done that. Here are a few examples:

"Again breakdowns off triple penetration, that's what really hurts the lakers"

"they didn't cloese teh final three minutes like i wanted them to"

He always pulls the old wise man card. He is nothing special. He is shitty at his job. It's come to the point where I watch the games muted a good portion of the time. shut up stu.

Well, I think he's just giving criticism, how he feels the way the team should play to win. Nothing against the Lakers, though, and I do think it woulda been really dull if he just talked about all the positives.

Yeah, I'm sure they hired him to do broadcasts due to his status as "Most Annoying Dude Ever", right? roll

As much as you might not like it... he's usually right.

At time....I have to agree with you.

When Chick was doing the broadcast there was not a game that went by that Hearn didn't lambast Stu Lantz for something stupid that Lantz said.

So now Lantz is running wild with dumb statements and has for years and nobody to stop him.

I wish Chick was back!!!

No, I feel that Stu is doing a great job on commentary. He's usually on-point and keeps his views objective. I like how he would provide constructive criticism on our players. I think that he and Joel Meyers make a great team; much better than the ones at TNT or ESPN... Very Happy

If anyone knows proper execution of basketball it's people like to Stu Lantz who have played the game professionally and has been commentating for the Lakers for the past 13 years. He's seen and played plenty of basketball to have his opinions be respected. When is he, so wrong, when he makes statements anyway?

The problem i have is that he expects everyone to be perfect and acts like playing as such is simple. He acts like every player can instantly assess the situation and make the correct decision within fractions of a second. This isn't humanly possible, and if it were then there would be not point in even playing the games.

I don't find him annoying at all, both commentators get a little boring since we've been listening to them for a while now, but at least we don't have commentators like Celtics.

I love Stu, he is objective, knowlegable, and one of the best in the business. Some of you newbees could learn a lot from him about basketball. Someday you will be old too, so get used to it.

He's saying as he sees it. Plain and simple. He's being objective and honest, not like many homers from other teams. Stu has been in the business seemingly forever and most Lakers fans have enjoyed his color commentating. Otherwise, he wouldn't have lasted for so long. Furthermore, you have to realize that there may be new basketball fans watching every time, so a little explanation of the plays merely serve for that purpose, giving them better understanding of the nuances of the game. Just chill and enjoy the game. Your other option is turn your TV to mute and listen to Spero Dedes on the radio.

Honestly, I love Stu, and his knowledge of basketball amazes me and sometimes I wonder why he's not coaching. Stu, just like many other commentators, have their negatives. To me, its the "Kobe says", or "Pau SAYS"... you know? Thats the part that annoys me. But other than that, I really like him.

Joel, I cant stand, and I wish they brought in Spero instead. But Ive heard many other team commentators, and I have yet to find one better than Joel and Stu.

You really want the worst? Austin Carr is your guy. Listen to him, and you'll see where Im coming from.

Stu Lanz's partner annoys me. Yes, Joel Myer just irritates me to the core. Why couldn't they just let Spero Dedes simulcast the Lakers games? I think he has the capability to do a good job at it.

I really like the guy... he makes the game entertaining. All Joel does is irritate me with his raspy voice, lulls me to sleep, and really not insightful at all.

Stu is the best right now. Stu is a fundamentalist. He was a great player in his time for his short career.

I will say this again I wish we still had Paul Sunderland though. (instead of Joel).

Paul Sutherland was actually pretty good. Didn't know why he was let go.

^ Sign me up on this.

I thought Sutherland was pretty cool... will take him over Meyers in a heartbeat.

Probably contract & money issues ^^^ But he was a good partner with James Worthy.

For those who hate stu maybe you should watch more games on other local networks, then you'd probably appreicate what we have more.

My pick for worst color analyst would probably be Bill Walton. Dude always made comments like "Back in my day we would have dunked that lay up..." or something stupid like that.

I didn't like Stu either. Until I watched games with commentators of other teams, then I realized how much better Stu is. Trust me, compared to other commentators, the guy is good. With other commentators, it is like watching a golf tournament. They just lull you to sleep. No excitement in their voices, no change, just solid, dull, monotone.

Dfish, I agree with you. Stu is very exacting and understands the game. In fact, as I have listened to him over the years, I have often thought he would have made a great coach. He does point out mistakes the team makes. But he also talks about the things they do right. He is fair and balanced. As for Chick calling him out, I will say this: Chick was the best basketball broadcaster in history. It was because of his style, his personality, the sayings he invented, his enthusiasm for the game, his unique way of delivering a phrase and also because he was not a homer. He was a true orginal. He influenced hundreds of broadcasters since. But I listened to Chick and I listened to Stu for a long, long time and Stu knows more basketball than Chick ever did. The other thing about Chick the broadcaster was this: He was a prima dona. I know it is heresy to say that, but its true. He was the boss, the man, the show, and if anyone tried in the slightest to challange him, he was as good as gone. And if you don't believe me, read some interviews with the many people who worked with Chick over his long career. Also read some books about the organization. I am not bashing Chick when I say this, but like many powerful icons, he had a huge ego and he did not like desent on his broadcasts and would not tolerate it. Chick may have called out Stu, but Stu was smart enough to know if he defended his point and took Chick on, he would not have been long for that job. If Stu had debated Chick over things said, Chick would have found himself starting to look bad. Stu really, really....

So we go from Drew Bashing to Stu Bashing? What's next, will you guys focus on Farmar and start Jew Bashing? Some of these LTB threads are just ridiculous. I wish this thread violated the site rules so I could lock it.
