Here, I thought it would be fun to count down some of the more annoying, unwatchable reporters/analysts and any other ESPN personality that is just unbearable on every level. While there are certainly still a monster number of ultra talented people who work at ESPN, I think we can all agree the company is going downhill fast. Without further ado, let’s get this started.
(Not So) Honorable Mentions:
21. Jemele Hill
She is fun, quick-witted and knows her shit. But her show ‘Numbers Never Lie’ is awful.
20. Michael Smith
By default, as the other half of ‘Numbers Never Lie’, I gotta put him in the honorable mentions. He knows his stuff too though, seems like a good dude as well.
19. Bill Walton
One goofy ass, Grateful Dead loving hippie that goes on rants that make you wonder if you are tripping on acid… but you aren’t, Mr. Walton might be, though. I actually like his eccentric personality but only once in a while.
18. Digger Phelps
Phelps has a boring personality and an obnoxious know it all attitude. I just don’t like the dude.
17. Bomani Jones
Incredibly talented but he plays the race card too often and he has about 300K tweets. If that’s not annoying I don’t know what is. All in all, he is very good at what he does, but it’s not hard to see why people are annoyed by him, whether or not I agree.
16. Tim Kurkjian
Tim Kurkjian comes on and says the most obvious statements, but states it in such an obscure, ridiculous, and uncomprehending way it you can’t help but scratch your head.
15. Michelle Beadle
I don’t mind Beadle one bit. I don’t watch her show anymore but she is pretty damn good at her job… with that said.. a lot of people can’t stand her. Probably because she is quite outspoken on a lot of topics and is very biased. But who isn’t?
