The best article in the Sunday Globe sports yesterday probably belonged to Bill Griffith in “Sport View” he had an lengthy conversation with FSNE’s Celtics broadcaster Mike Gorman, who had some really interesting things to say. Among them: Kedrick Brown is going to be a force in the NBA, he thinks (As does Tommy Heinsohn) that the Celtics are playing their best defense since Bill Russell was playing, and that Antoine Walker has matured more in the past eight months than in the past six years combined. The article has many other points from Gorman, as well as extensive Boston Sports Media notes.
I don’t think D&C are unlikeable. They’re passionate and sometimes their comments and opinions can be perceived as negative. But they are incredibly smart, well prepared and far more knowledgeable about sports than Toucher and Rich. That’s why they’re as successful as they are. Toucher and Rich are talented radio guys and they have a following, but if you want sports, D&C are the choice.
