One of the eccentric charms of Jeff Van Gundy as ESPN's lead NBA analyst is his eagerness to go on bizarre tangents and rants. It could be rants about flopping, his thirst for blood, or anything else that's happening in the world. I'm waiting for the day when Van Gundy is dissecting a pick and role replay and blurts out "and what's the deal with airplane peanuts?"
Most of the time I don't mind Van Gundy's tangents because it's part of his distinctive personality as a broadcaster and shows his personality we never saw when he was on the sidelines. I'd rather have someone consistently speak their mind on random stuff than tip toe through the tulips and say nothing of interest or value.
But last night JVG just had to wander into Kirk Herbstreit territory and ripped Northern Illinois making the BCS and be just another bully trying to keep the little guy down. Via Larry Brown Sports...no comments
