I like the bringing in of guest players and coaches to take turns, but
you need a permanent individual capable of good analysis. Too often
Kenny Smith doesnt cut it, as he basically has the same role as the
guest player. Vecsey or a coach, someone capable of being a little more
critical and analytical needs to be around. Its nice to get the color
and sound bites from the guest players and Kenny Smith, but one wants
more. Like after the Spurs-Lakers game. 2 times whasshisname asked
if Shaq should be upset about the refs, and Kenny Smith didnt get his cue
either time. Instead Kenny responded both times that Shaq's going to get
fouled in the playoffs blah blah blah.  The question was about the
lack of calls, not about whether its a smart move to foul him. There
TBS sorely needed someone who would have had a strong opinion, like
Walton, Vecsey etc and could have expounded on the subject. Not Kenny
Smith and Armstrong trading barbs. Thats funny, but it 'aint' enough.

        Here's an idea for you Roy....How about just
making it the "Shaq All Star Fun House".  Have Shaq
do the pregame....and then instead of a game it
will be Shaq going one on one against somebody
from the Washington Generals...and Shaq will be
the ref, since we all now that the Refs are all
biased against him...and when Shaq gets fouled,
instead of making him shoot those difficult free
throws, he gets to shoot layups from the blocks..
and then Shaq can do the postgame show and expound
on his greatness, and have him tell us more about
he's won on all levels, except for college and the
pros...and then, after the postgame, we could
have the Shaq film festival, featuring those
riveting movies "Kazaam" and "Steel".
