    It should be unbelievable, because it's literally no one's opinion in this thread.

    I personally find Bill's senility to be annoying, but I fully recognize the positives that he brings to the table. I'll be sad when he's no longer calling games, but it will be completely understandable. And count me as someone who likes Craig, but also thinks that his yelling is annoying. He seems to still be in radio mode at times, but I think he will continue to improve. Plus I think he has good chemistry with Bullard.

    You are an a**hole with an opinion. It’s called getting old. I hope Bill does not read this thread.

    Ben DuBose would be a good announcer for the Rockets

    Let's jut say I miss Gene Petersen and Jim Foley. Bill is a link back. Ackerman is as enjoyable as a leaking crapper.

    Bill Worrell was shagging women and calling Rockets basketball before you were out of diapers. The man craps out more basketball knowledge each morning than you will ever have.

    Or Thunder. Thunder's commentators are the worst. Incredibly annoying

    In Dwight's last year, and the disaster of a season on all fronts, Bill called it like it was. He didn't sugarcoat it. He might homer on what is a foul or not, but I don't think many local broadcasters would have the guts to do what he did. The day he leaves will be a sad one for the Rockets organization.

    I can’t not like Bill. The “senior moments” don’t matter much to me. Drexler’s vapid commentary, on the other hand, annoys me.

    It just depends on who you grew up listening to, I guess.

    For radio, yes. He talks too fast for TV. Guy sure has a quick mind, and tons of material to fill any void in air-time.

    Also, has he solved his "...uh..." pause problem?

    Can’t really hate on Bill, he’s genuinely a nice guy. With that said, his career is living on borrowed time. Nowadays i just laugh during the broadcast.

    i will say however, Bullard can be extremely annoying at times.

    Bill: Man Anderson has really been on a hot streak from 3, he’s looking like a young Matt Bullard out there!

    Bull: Haha! Well you know Bill, he’s gotta keep stroking it from downtown. i had the pleasure of playing with Hakeem Olajuwon as you might know, and was able to get a ton of good looks from Hakeem.

    Bill: Oh yeah, you and Hakeem were quite the outside and inside presence.

    Ummmmmmmmmm okay..... Bull averaged like 2 mins a game?? LOL

    Can’t really blame Bill though, his homerism and being a nice guy just shines through.

    Gotta agree with the criticism of Ackerman though, boy his he terrible to listen to.

    Bill Worrell is awesome. Maybe if you weren't 12 you would appreciate him.

    its sad when you know that the knicks have mike breen and the nets have ian eagle every night.

    if i could change anything, it would be to get rid of clyde. he adds absolutely nothing to the table.
