Pierre McGuire

Fact File: NHL on NBC inside the glass analyst

Why He’s Here: There are many hockey fans that just don’t like Pierre McGuire.  It could be the way he gushes about certain players, the way his cliches and style grates, or even how he pronounces certain words.  Mainly, it’s the way McGuire carries himself as an expert in spite of his 23-37-7 record as an NHL head coach.

Reggie Miller

Fact File: NBA on TNT game analyst

Why He’s Here: Reggie Miller has been closer to Boom Goes The Dynamite than Boom, Baby as an analyst for TNT’s NBA coverage.  Miller is the prototypical example of an athlete shoved into the booth or on television because of his name and not what he brings to the table as an analyst.
