Hoops on the radio

So I'm listening to the Hornets-Celtics game on the way into work and the Hornets broadcasters might as well have been speaking another language.

"There's the 3-ball.''


"Dribble drive.'' (Is there any other way to drive to the hoop other than the dribble?)

Look, I like basketball. I really do. And it's great when there are teams and players who make me really care about the sport.

But basketball's greatness is in the way games come down to the end and buzzer beaters happen seemingly all the time. The speed of the game is what makes it great. But that same speed is a killer listening on the radio.

As for radio, well, basketball's more of a TV sport than a radio sport.
