I like Dave Miller. Hope he stays! I don't get all the DM hate here.

I feel bad for Adler. She ran the table discussions well toward the end of last season. Reading tweets was where she struggled. I liked her....she's very likable. I always felt she was really rooting for us....not just doing her job. I think guys here didn't like her because she was thin and not "smokin hot".
The same people that hate on dave are probably the same folks that hate on stu lance. stu and dave have 2 things in common. #1 a wealth of hoop knowledge & #2 they love giving it out to the masses. some people dont like being TAUGHT while they are watching TV for entertainment.

But really every analyst from national tv to regional has a wealth of knowledge. That doesn't mean they're going to be great on tv. i think dave miller is a robot, he sounds like he's reading off mesmerized cards he wrote before the show. Search youtube and hear his real normal non-screeching voice. I think its funny when they have him seated there with worthy, cooper or a rambis, the guy doesn't belong. That doesn't mean he shouldn't be on the show but he'd have to be exceptional so much that people wouldn't care, and right now he's not.

He should be replaced by coop, a player, also a coach, a guy you might say has some basketball knowledge, and the guys a real Laker.
also i love stu so your wrong on that

Jaime is easy on the eyes and from what little of her broadcasts I've seen, she'll likely do a good job.

But Andy Adler was the least of the problems on Access Sportsnet Lakers. The entire show is a mess, top to bottom.

It's very sad that the Los Angeles Lakers, the org that brought the world Chick F Hearn, can't do a better job with their broadcasts. The whole thing needs to be dumped over and re-imagined from soup to nuts.

One hint...it doesn't take 4 or 5 people, talking as loudly and with as much physical animation as they can muster, fist bumping and saying "Respect!", to pull off a simple pregame show.

The game telecasts are equally as bad. At least Stu doesn't openly hate Bill McDonald the way he did Joel Meyers. But the game broadcasts are in serious need of a complete overhaul as well.


I think they need to feature Mike Trudell more. That guy is the best thing they've got going broadcast-wise.

Inserting him into Ireland's role would be a great start. Trudell in Billy Mac's spot while you're at it.

They can get new creative people to re-boot the entire thing but, for starters, this would be the easiest way to boost the quality of their broadcasts.

Get harlan to do play-by-play + more pretty camera angles = problem solved.

I used to love pre-game with Big Game and Alan Massengale. Not sure what happened to that guy, but I'd love to see him come back. Loved it when they shot on the mini-hoop to end the show.

My biggest annoyance on the show is Coach Miller. Just can't stand him. He over emphasizes all body movements and I hate how he speaks directly to the camera when he is supposed to be having a conversation with his other hosts.

Now I feel guilty for not liking Andy Adler and the kicker is I would bet that most of the reason that I found her so bad on TWC is not even her fault. I'm sure she did exactly what the suits behind the scenes wanted her to do... its just that her role was poorly designed. It seemed like they wanted a cheerleader type personality to read tweets and moderate discussions, but it was annoying because the concept was annoying to begin with. I hope she does well and if I ever see her in public, I'll have some kind words for her.


You have a valid point about the role, but she wasn't even good or remotely charismatic doing what was a simple role. If she actually had to contribute some halfway cogent or informed commentary, she wouldn't be able to do it. She clearly came across as someone who didn't know her stuff and was trying to get by with parroting and fist bumping. That's not to say that her appearance wasn't enough to get her canned with complaints flooding in and ratings at stake (and I'm there were plenty of emails on that subject -- we've talked about it incessantly as a group here). The network paid a big nut for the broadcast rights. Appealing to a huge male demo isn't a dumb idea.

Still, everything CabinCreek44 said is true. The production value of their programming is about as poor as that of an old 70s game show. It was mindless and they even tried to cop some of that goofy panel format from TNT. Miller rubs me the wrong way. I cannot STAND those Bill Self style college coaches -- they're so media-polished and they talk like a self-help salesman (Tony Robbins, e.g.).

I think they should try to differentiate the home games from the road games. Hearing that same theme song and graphics 82x a year get monotonous by January.

Seriously? Who cares what she looks like. It's about whether or not she actually knows (a) basketball and (b) anything about the Lakers. Adler was TERRIBLE because it was obvious she didn't know much about either. As a woman, it's frustrating to have a woman on the show that is only up there to be eye candy and knows nothing about the team and sport I am passionate about. There are plenty of women that DO know this stuff, so hopefully this new one is one such lady.

I just started fastforwarding over Adler whenever I had a chance. Only way I could avoid cringing every time I heard her.

So glad Andy Adler is gone. She was the most annoying host ever.

Now that Buss has gone too far. To fire the greatest on air talent since Cosell? Who goofed I've got to know. Andy Adler had a voice like honey, a body like a curvy mountain road, a wit quicker than lightning , and knows more about basketball then Phil and Riles combined. What a loss, far worse than Dwight.

i have a question?

I was researching andy adler threads on LG and all of them are locked. i think one of the mods said its being locked because of the disrespect that is being sent towards her is unacceptable and wont be tolerated.


Now... I understand locking threads when disrespect is being sent between other members on LG but why protect journalists and sportscasters from the comments on LG. I mean it is free speech... right? Now I wouldn't go as far as disrespecting Pincus because he does bring information to the board in a non-trollish manner .......

but if Guys like Jason Whitlock, Bruce Blitz, Bill Simmons etc.. whom ill assume will never visit this site gets trashed here why bother locking the thread? they never cared about the lakers and prolly never will
