I want Malik Rose. Where is Malik Rose? I don’t like Alaa Abdelnaby. I like Marc Zumoff. And Malik Rose. Bring back Malik Rose please.
I don’t want to say that the best recent era of 76ers basketball is being ruined by the commentary, but it does make me marginally less excited to tune in when I know that the dudes (or dude, in this case) behind the mic will aggravate me. The real solution would be fan-made real-time commentary provided by randoms from the Internet, like a Twitch chat but in spoken form.
Actually that’s a supremely horrible idea, just ignore that one. I don’t know what I was thinking.
Commentators aside, Marco Belinelli had his best game with the 76ers tonight. He hasn’t been very good for them, but he’s getting paid so little it doesn’t really matter, and now they have Ersan Ilyasova as insurance anyway. His habit of taking only tough shots leads, predictably, to some sad-looking shooting percentages. It’s too late for him to change at this point, shooting leaning three-pointers is in his blood, along with a whole lot of red and white blood cells and maybe some other stuff too.
