No he left (was fired) 4 or 5 years ago and replaced by Brian Wheeler who
had been with the Kings. Mike Rice is still the other radio guy.
Eddie was involved with the new HOF I think. It opened last year IIRC and I
do not know if he is still there or not.

Not sure what kind of announcer he was in Portland, but he was the guy I
grew up listening to do Bucks games. He remains the standard by which I measure
all NBA broadcasters.

I liked him but he was pretty much second fiddle to Schonely and then Rice
came in and Eddie did the TV broadcasts and Snapper ran that show. They
were a good team though. Schonz was there from the start in 1970 and when
they edged him off the air it was like cutting the final ties to the past
teams.
I think what is left of pre-whitsitt is Snapper and some guy selling
popcorn....he was slipping when Eddie came in but we would have put up with
that.

I certainly liked Eddie a lot better than the current homer team of Mike
Rice, Wheels and the worst Pete Pranica that is teamed with Steve.

Bucks' broadcasts haven't been the same since he left. Eddie was replaced by
Jim Irwin, who was freaking awful -- well unless you didn't mind going minutes
without knowing the score, who scored, who committed a foul or how much time
was left in a quarter. The announcers have gotten better since Irwin was put
out to pasture, but it's just not the same as when Eddie did the games with
flair and brilliance.

Absolutely! Nobody called a game like Eddie D. Long before Chris Berman he
had guys like Kareem "Popping out of the toaster" with the sky hook.

I thought Irwin and Max McGee was about the best combination there was in
football. But I remember when Irwin started doing Bucks games, listening to
him on radio while watching it on TV would often lead me to believe that he
was watching a different game than I was. Every call against the Bucks was
a bad call, and I mean every call. "OH MY! How could they call that! Three
seconds! Learn how to count, ref!" he would say while on TV I see a Buck
player sitting down in the lane and trying to start a campfire by rubbing
two sticks together...

He definately was colorful and a Milwaukee Buck radio legend. Terry
Davis isn't bad at all currently...he sometimes gets too excited for
me when the other team does good too. I did like Howard David.
Honestly, I'm more of a TV guy, and McGlocklin and Paschke are great.
In watching so many games last year, Joe Wolf also had done a solid
job in subbing for McGlocklin, too.

I don't have a whole lot of use for national guys, but Sean Elliott, I
felt, was one of the decent ones. I can't stand Fratillo, tho.

I don't see how Ernie's scouts could have gotten through all the secrecy
including federally mandated.

The trip to the hospital after March Madness could have been a warning.

Actually, getting in front of someone 160 lbs would be enough to shake his
spine in a collision with someone 260. There was a good picture in an ESPN
article of Stephen Jackson going head hunting against a Net.

I'm saying number 8 was too soon to gamble on Ford. He can't shoot, or isn't
a proven one. He has a neck condition. If he didn't go to the hospital in
April, I'd have no argument. But according to one Texas article I posted
Ford has a history of neck injuries.

I touted Gaines long ago, because of his versatility and ability to make
threes.

He was chosen 14th, but there's no history of career-threatening neck
injuries.

And with the Swiss cheese defense in the front court, I don't understand
cashing out the third pick. Lang or some other PFs were on the board.

But then again, last year it was the tweener, Haislip, in the lottery.
Grunfeld messed up then. For a number 8, Ford is a gamble.

Note: this kind of argument can go around in circles.

You're assuming full info was divulged about Ford. I've shown the secrecy
laws and history of neck injuries, mentioned in Texas.

Well obviously no one will say like Artest about someone like A. Iverson,
'we won't take it easy on him because he might have a problem with his
spine. What should we do get out of his way.'

Repeating the Texas article, 'history'. And no comment.

T.J. Ford injured in pickup game

by Darren W. Dummit Daily Texan

AUSTIN, Texas (U-WIRE) -- Texas guard T.J. Ford was taken by ambulance to a
hospital Wednesday night following an injury he suffered in a pickup game at
Gregory Gym.

Ford, who has an unsettling history of neck injuries, was checked into St.
David's Hospital at 6 p.m., where emergency room doctors treated him. An
hour and a half later, Texas coach Rick Barnes emerged from his star
player's room. Barnes smiled and joked with reporters, but declined comment
on Ford. Ford was released at 10 p.m.
