Bucks Fans Whining About Gus Johnson Piss Me Off
In case you missed it, Milwaukee Bucks lost tonight to Toronto Raptors, 106-100 in Game 2. It was a hard-fought game where Milwaukee took every punch from Toronto. We’ll talk more about it later in a variety of formats. But before we do, Bucks fans showed their ass on Twitter after the game complaining about Gus Johnson going non-homer with the FOX Sports Wisconsin call. This shouldn’t be a topic, but unfortunately, people think Johnson should be a company man.
When I was a youngster, I loved Gus. I still enjoy him quite a bit. Johnson lives for close games and big shots. That’s exactly what Kyle Lowry did in that moment and adding ‘North Philly’ is a signature move from the longtime broadcaster. Why are Bucks fans bitching about how Johnson reacted to the shot? We say all the time that ‘Journalists should be neutral’ so when Johnson calls the game like a national, we get all itchy and sensitive. Grow the fuck up. Bucks chose Johnson and Marques Johnson because they are a national-like broadcast giving viewers a different perspective than Jim and Jon for the whole series.
I know this will be a topic on the radio because callers will want to whine about how Gus called the game, but I’m telling you, if that were Brian Anderson doing a local broadcast for FOX Sports Wisconsin you’re getting an animated reaction. It wouldn’t be to Johnson’s level, but there would definitely be some oomph to it.
If you don’t like Gus, enjoy the national broadcast on Thursday night.
