Adler wasn't very good. I'm surprised they hired her in the first place.

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.


Not to offend, but it is a long season and I would just as soon the reporter is attractive in that role, I am not expecting them to break national stories or be perfect. I liked Andy Adler, I am obviously in the minority but Jaime is professional and attractive and will do well.

Sorry if that is stereotypical male chauvinist, but I am being honest as to my opinion of what I like for the studio host female role. I don't need Shelly Smith of ESPN for instance.


Its the way the world works. Most men like sports and looking at eye candy. Most viewers of Laker basketball are men. They cater to that demographic.

Our society has this bs politically correct face but under the hood human nature drives each and every thing. And curvy women who can hold a conversation about sports are at the top of most men's wish list.

Try watching a female audience dominated show like the view or something and let me know how often they bring a guy that looks like Dave miller on as a special guest. I think they bring on Mario Lopez every other week for no apparent reason other than to get the house wives now that use to watch him as ac slater when they were teens to watch and breath heavy. Lol

Its the same out in the real world. You go for interview at a job and 9/10 times you will get beneficial treatment on your looks. Doesn't matter if your male or female. Doesn't mean its fait but in case you haven't noticed the world isn't fair and there isn't anything anyone can do to make it fair.

Back to OP. Jamie is definitely more solid than Andy. Andy reminded me of a valley girl humanities major. Dumb and annoying.

Thank god they replaced Adler she was absolutely terrible. Easily the worst sports anchor on all of television.


Adler was absolutely horrible. Almost as bad as Lauren Sanchez when she did sports back in the day. Mason & Ireland used to rip on her daily.

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.



This. I understand how some people were annoyed by his uber enthusiasm in the beginning but the guy knows basketball. An I've grown to like him. He's a dedicated and loyal host an to me he's a Laker for life now.

I love Stu always have for almost two decades now, but I can not stand that clown Dave Miller, and I do not except his concepts or opinions.

Trudell, Ireland, and Worthy are good but I'd be in favor of a clean sweep of the rest of the cast.

As long as Stu is in charge, the TV group will always have an awkward fit. The Chick and Stu thing only worked because of Chick, he could make anyone look good. Every new guy that comes in is unfairly compared to Chick while Stu gets a pass for falling well short himself.

What characteristics do you expect out of the color analyst? Outside of Stu's obvious homerism for Kobe, I find him to be a pretty unbiased and clear commentator. He provides his opinions, suggestions around how to run certain plays or moves in the post, and some extra color with his made up conversations for the players.

It's not even about her being thin. She is just very awkward for a television personality. Her stance is just all wrong both in that picture and on tv. She locks her knees and stands wide legged. Basically she stands like a dude. On top of that, her wardrobe was horrendous.

I expect him to have a likable personality and to at least try to have a civil relationship and chemistry with his partner. Stu is beyond corny (especially those made up conversations) and he just comes off like a real jerk to every partner he has had, constantly trying to one up them and belittle them.

Ahhh NO.

Jamie has a prettier face and a decent body. Andy needs a bag and has a good body.

What irritated me the most about Andy was when she would wear all green outfits. She's on a Lakers show! How dense could she be?
I'm surprised she went to Stanford.

They should have just hired Serene Branson who is both hot and articulate:

Her nose didn't work, maybe she should get that checked out. She sounded like she had a permanent cold.

The reason why Maggio is better?
She's smart enough that she doesn't try to read the twitter names. Just read the tweet. haha.
