The votes are in, the grades have been tallied, and the rankings have been arranged. After over 10,000 votes (an average of nearly 350 a team, which is far lower than I expected), the readers of Awful Announcing have decided on their favorite and least favorite local NBA broadcast teams.

If I missed listing an analyst or used an unflattering screengrab, I apologize.
