The National Basketball Association season starts next week. If you flip on a marquee matchup on ESPN or ABC sometime this fall, you’ll probably hear the voice of today's guest: play-by-play announcer Mike Breen. Mike is widely regarded as one of the best announcers in the world in any sport. He informs without overexplaining. He shows excitement and love of the game without being cheesy. He perfectly captures the energy in the arena for those of us watching at home. It’s no surprise he has announced the NBA finals a record fifteen times and received the top media award from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020.Mike is a proud alumnus of Fordham University and a deeply committed Catholic. Host Mike Jordan Laskey asked him about what he loved the most about returning to the arena after announcing dozens of games from his house during the pandemic. They also talked about all the work that goes into the job of announcing games in the hours and days before a big game starts. They also discussed Mike Breen's faith and his time at Fordham.Learn more about Mike Breen: https://espnpressroom.com/us/bios/breen_mike/AMDG is a production of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States.Subscribe to AMDG wherever you get podcasts.

REShow: Mike Breen & Bomani Jones - Hour 3 (05-11-21)
The Rich Eisen Show
ESPN and Knicks announcer Mike Breen and Rich discuss his Basketball Hall of Fame induction, how the woebegone Knicks have finally turned it around this season, Julius Randle’s emergence as a legitimate MVP candidate, why there are eight teams with a shot to win the NBA Title, and his pick (for now) for the NBA MVP Award. ESPN’s Bomani Jones tells Rich why the Aaron Rodgers-Packers situation was completely avoidable, why Urban Meyer bringing Tim Tebow back to the NFL as a tight end is “really stupid,” how the NBA is flirting with disaster with their new Play-In Tournament if the defending champion Lakers get bounced early, and why Nuggets C Nikola Jokic has an MVP skillset but not the haircut to match. Rich and the guys debate how much an impact, if any, Tim Tebow could have on the Jaguars this season and if Urban Meyer is hurting his credibility by bringing in his former Heisman Trophy-winning QB. Rich wraps up the hour remarking on the anniversary of the release of one of the all-time great sports movies, ‘The Natural.’And make sure you check out Rich's other podcast: Just Getting Started with Rich Eisen.
