    Please, and I mean please! Is it just me..or Does Calvin make the broadcast 100x better! Ive truly missed him! Bull and Clyde are the dullest announcers i've ever heard in my life. Calvin Murphy was hilarious Tonight, had me laughing and brought life to the game and broadcast. Ive never laughed at anything Bull or Clyde said...

    Please Free Calvin and bring him back!

    Fire Bull & Clyde!

    Never had a chance to experience Calvin broadcasting, and I really like Bull and Clyde. But Calvin was on point tonight doing color :cool:

    On a night when the Rockets celebrate members of the championship teams, you want two of these guys fired?

    Damn I remember when Calvin used to do color for Rockets games. He made even the most mediocre-bad seasons and games actually decent to watch/listen to.

    Surely the clubbing baby seals comment gave you a slight chuckle, right?

    I enjoyed having Calvin back. He is the jelly and Bill is the peanut butter.

    I have always regarded him top 5 commentator of all time in any sport.

    When he stopped doing Rockets games I actually shed a tear

    tonight was awesome

    Calvin is the best, I wish he would stay...


    but I also wish we would change our ugly candycane uniforms and have old school colors in our regular uniforms...

    Rockets management never seems to do what I want

    sheesh I also have been wanting a championship sometime this century.. they just never do what I want

    maybe this year.. maybe this year is the year we get Calvin back for good.. a championship and an entire uniform change/logo change in the offseason


    let a man dream


    tonight was a good start

    I agree. Murph had some funny one liners. Too many to quote.

    He was like a kid at Christmas. It was so much fun to listen to and watch.

    I might be one of the few people who like Bullard. He’s fairly objective and knowledgeable but too dry and boring. But I do think he fits better as the 3rd guy with Calvin and Worrell rather than the only color guy. Clyde OTOH is either unintentionally hilarious or just bad.

    Have Bull do away games and Calvin home games. Sit Drexler next to Eschenfelder we're good to go.

    Calvin is the GOAT NBA commentator in terms of entertainment and analysis. Glad to hear him tonight.

    Tonight was a treat listening to Calvin, miles and miles better than our current commentators (all respect due).

    I've really missed him on the telecast.

    I like Bullard, also. He's not as energetic as Calvin, but I like his insight when he breaks down key plays. I also find his corny jokes endearing.

    Clyde is endearing in his own way, but I'd pick Bullard over him.

    Until Harden was getting in 50 point territory, I was honestly more interested in the broadcast than the actual game. What an awesome night (besides T Jones getting hurt...)

    Agreed. Calvin had more great insights in one game than Clyde has had all year. I also laughed more in this game then I have all year. Clyde must go, Calvin must stay. Bull is fine for halftime or as the third man.

    Please stop this Clyde bore fest of cliches and nonsense. Give us Calvin back.

    I love Calvin. Been missing him.

    I think Calvin and Bullard would work together considering Calvin's hilariousness and Bullard's nerdyness. Calvin would be the primary color guy and Bull would be the 2nd option. Bill should keep doing play-by-play even though he's a huge homer.

    Clyde should do halftime/postgame.
