    Was he canned by root sports? Is he sick, or attending to a personal matter? I thought he was going to remain on staff. He did the first handful of games, but lately Mo Taylor has been on the broadcasts, who's nowhere near as fun (and not much more insightful).

    BRING BACK CALVIN

    Calvin said last week that he is going somewhere this weekend and will be back next week. What does Root Sports have to do with his personal plans?

    Doesn't he know we will grow agitated without his analysis?

    How random is it that Maurice Taylor of all people is filling in as an analyst. Haven't seen or heard of that dude in almost ten years, lol.

    Bart Ennis is so much better than that CSN weirdo they usually have.

    Crap can't edit but my jaw dropped when I saw that, only person who would be the most unexpected analysts would be Charles Barkley/Scottie Pippen

    The first time I saw Taylor come on the broadcast, I swear they put up a bottom third graphic labeling him "Former Houston Rocket: 1997-2007" and I seriously wondered if I had gone insane and forgotten about Mo Taylor somehow being on both the Battier Rockets and the Pippen Rockets.

    (That was his entire career length, not his Rockets tenure)

    Bart is way too stiff, Kevin Eschenfelder is a much better fit for Calvin..... IMO

    Calvin went to Niagara University where he was honored this weekend along with his coach.

    Mo Taylor filled in ok.
