With a new NBA season about to get underway, it means that some of the more beloved broadcasting teams are back for another year. It also means the extremely funny back-and-forth between Ian Eagle and Mike Fratello for the Brooklyn Nets on YES returns for 2013-2014. These two are known for their sarcastic banter.

And right before the tip of the Nets' first preseason game last week, Ian went right for the jugular when he was asked the Czar of the Telestrator how his summer was. The results plus Fratello's look are fantastic.


Now we have chronicled how Ian and Mike have "battled" on-air in the past with The Bird saying it's all in fun. Here's hoping we get some more gems from The Bird and The Czar in 2013-14.
