Bryant: "Doc, you're certainly unique in how you call an athletic competition using only breakfast terms and analogies"

Doc: "Don't waffle, ask some real questions and I can spoon you some answers"

very cool the way he interacts with all the different personnel at the arenas from the ice guy on up.

I respect him greatly, but not my first choice for announcers. He's good to listen to once in a while, like during the national broadcasts. Not sure how you can stand him on a daily basis though

For me it's easy. He makes even the most boring of games interesting and can ratchet up seemingly innocuous moments by his inflections alone.
