If you are one of the very few people across America who enjoys listening to the ESPN studio crew comprised of Magic Johnson, Jon Barry, Chris Broussard, and Mike Wilbon I would love to hear your reasoning. Simply put, this is the most unbearable crew in professional sports. Magic Johnson is one of the best players of all time, but he has no business sitting at a studio desk with a microphone on. When he changed his prediction for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals from the Celtics to the Heat because he “saw the Heat’s faces,” I officially gave up on Magic.

After Miami’s Game 3 win over Oklahoma City in the Finals Sunday night, a brave fan decided to park himself behind the infamous crew and hold up a sign that read “Jon Barry Sucks!!” While I don’t mind Barry and Wilbon as much as I hate Magic and Broussard, his message is one that we can all appreciate. I’m thinking ESPN may have even let him stay there for so long because they know how miserably they failed when they assembled this crew.
