That's too bad, because I think Greg Anthony is a solid studio analyst (though I think Smith is better).

On a related note, I thought just about all the analysts TNT and/or NBA TV brought to the NCAA Tournament coverage (both in the studio and announcing the games) earlier this year were better than the guys CBS already had on college basketball (though I guess Greg Anthony was already with CBS in addition to NBA TV). Kenny Smith (studio) and Steve Kerr (games) are both real standouts for TNT IMO.

One final thought - I'd like to see CBS and Turner strengthen their relationship, ala ABC/ESPN and NBC/VS; that might allow the NBA's over-the-air national TV package to be on CBS (using the TNT guys) rather than ABC.
I noticed tension on the TNT set also between Anthony and Charles.

I could care less who is announcing what. I tune them out anyway. And come halftime, I leave the room and do other things.

I watch THE GAME.
