I think Scal is just fine as a color guy next to Gorman.  He knows modern basketball and he respects Mike, and Mike is a professional who can work with anybody. 

As for the pre/postgame stuff, the whole thing is a mess.  I don't like anybody on that crew.

not even PErk?

I thought Abby was fine before this season and Perk is ok when directed down a conversation path.  I find as soon as Scal gets involved, it all just goes to hell

Wow. Just saw the Reddit link. I also live out of market and prior to seeing that thought Scal was great during games. What a first class jerk he appears to be.

Are you guys misreading Scal's attempt at deadpan? I know a few years back he and Abby were buddies doing livestreams on the road.

I feel like we could do better.  He was picked because he was a goofy victory cigar player only.  Since he was a less serious guy, they thought he could capture Tommy's role a little and it hasn't worked.  He's just kind of **** but not in an endearing way like Tommy, who was a million times cooler and actually good at professional basketball to boot

Iím a big fan. Itís rare to find someone who knows the game and really sees whatís going on in real time, and even rarer to find one who isnít a former NBA coach - but heís one.

Several people on here are bothered by his personality or something, but Iím not, and he has excellent chemistry with Mike.
'I was proud of Marcus Smart. He did a great job of keeping us together. He might not get credit for this game, but the pace that he played at, and his playcalling, some of the plays that he called were great. We obviously have to rely on him, so Iím definitely looking forward to Marcus leading this team in that role.' - Jaylen Brown, January 2021

The reason the thread got bumped is because of his disrespectful behavior during pre and postgame.

I'd prefer someone who doesn't know the game as well and doesn't create a hostile work environment, particularly to women, to someone who does know the game (I don't even necessarily agree with that) and is condescending, at absolute best, to those who didn't play.
