I've heard from a very reliable source that Calvin Murphy will be back announcing the Rockets this upcoming season



UPDATE: 9/25/2012 at 1:30pm

Calvin Murphy returning to the Rockets' broadcasts: Eight years after child abuse acquittal, a grateful legend is back
http://houston.culturemap.com/newsde...-legend-is-ba/

In a few weeks we’ll see the very colorful Calvin Murphy, in his signature suits, again on the Rockets broadcast. This time he’ll be in a new role and he couldn’t be more excited. Murphy will host the pregame, halftime and postgame shows. He looks forward to talking basketball and adding his flavor to the new broadcasts. But that first time back will definitely be emotional.

“I feel like my rookie year, getting ready to go, and my first day into rookie camp," Murphy says. "I’m nervous. I’m apprehensive. I’m excited. I can’t wait for this to happen.”

Considering the likelihood of another average season next year, this will be the biggest Rockets move this offseason. What's next? New uni's? Fingers crossed.

Thank God, Bill Worrell has been awful. He caught Bullarditis and bitched about the play and refereeing every damn night.

Clyde is the shining star, I cant wait to hear him try Play By Play

Hope so. I've been crossing my fingers that this will accompany the move to the new network (Comcast Sportsnet Houston).

I think the Rockets make the hire on who calls the game though.

Please say he's replacing the abomination that is Clyde.

Wish the rockets were sold like the Astros.

Yes. The Rockets made that decision.

The pimp daddy suits and jive turkey talk is back?

Les must be feeling the consumer heat to rehire someone he doesn't care much for.

Yeah, but if there is enough influence from CSN perhaps they might bring Calvin back. I believe the President/CEO of CSN they hired is the guy that used to run HSE in the '90s.

On a recent phone interview with 610 Calvin said he had a special announcement that he wanted to say on the radio show but couldn't just yet so maybe he's hinting that he might be involved in way next season.

Clyde is terrible but hopefully they can still keep him around. He's a Houston legend and needs to keep involved with the organization some how. Its just that he's a horrible announcer.

I actually think Bullard has come a long way and I actually enjoy the games he calls. He does get a bitchy about flopping and bad fouls, but he has really found his niche breaking down the game rather than trying too hard to be an entertainer.

I wouldn't expect a full fledged comeback next season for Calvin if it does in fact happen. He will probably be eased in or added to the sidelines in a Craig Sager type of role if I had to put money on it. They aren't just going to fire both of the other guys right away.
