Chicago Bulls analyst Stacey King is certainly one of the more colorful, entertaining analysts in the NBA. With the game tied in the final seconds against the Pistons Wednesday night, Marco Belinelli scored the winning basket after an incredible hustle play from Joakim Noah. As the ball goes through the hoop, King flips his lid and shouts, "I LIKE MY MEATBALLS SPICY!"
Ah yes, Belinelli is Italian and spicy meatballs are associated with Italian cuisine. I usually enjoy King's antics, but I'm hesitant about embracing ethnically based announcing calls. Not because I'm outraged and wildly offended, but because it's just too easy. Although it would be nice to include this on the Stacey King soundboard for random occurrences. It fits well with "GIVE ME THE HOT SAUCE!"
