There was some discussion on another topic about how bad the ESPN broadcasts are, and that got me thinking of how good our commentators are on Spectrum. In particular, I just really love Stu Lantz. Not to be morbid, but he’s getting up there in age, so I realized part of why I prefer Spectrum is because I want to hear as much of Stu as possible before he retires. So just wanted to make this thread to give him his flowers and see how the rest of the fans feel about Stu. He’s been the voice of the Lakers my whole life. He has great basketball intelligence and is one of the more unbiased announcers. When it’s justified, he’s not afraid to scathingly call out the Lakers, or give major props to the opposition. While he has some quirks that may have annoyed me in the past, at this point it’s mostly endearing. Also love hearing some of his classic “Stu-isms”, those funny phrases that we’ve heard over the past several decades. At one point my friends and I were trying to compile a list to make a Bingo game out of Stu’s phrases to play during a game. Mr. Momentum has switched jersey’s. That was NOOOOICE! You’ll never win a battle with Mr. Floor. The little fake conversations he makes up, “Lebron says ‘you can’t guard me young pup’ as he glides to the rim for the dunk”! His snark when a game is decided but one team still calls timeouts or taking fouls at the end of the game when he just wants to go home and sleep lol. Etc, etc. I don’t know if this is considered blasphemy since maybe he isn’t quite AS iconic, but in my book I would almost like to see Stu get a jersey retired right next to Chick’s whenever he decides to hang it up.
