A lot of people don't like Gus Johnson because he goes absolutely crazy during exciting moments in a game. I love Gus Johnson because he goes absolutely crazy during exciting moments in games.
Tonight during the Knicks-Blazers game in Portland, after Al Harrington hit a three-pointer with less than 2:00 to go, Gus went nuts on the MSG telecast, screaming this at the top of his lungs:
"My name's Al Harrington. I get buckets!"
The funniest thing about Johnson is that when he's that excited, he screams so loud that it seems like he could vomit at any moment. Not that it would be funny if that happened, but I'd definitely track down some video of it and post it here.
