I'm not proud of this, but this is the first time Bulls announcer Stacey King has been featured on this website. Despite hearing a few of his games over the last few years and seeing many mentions on Twitter from our followers, we have yet to post on the former player turned announcer. It's time we give the third year color analyst some play here at AA.

On Monday night, as if subjecting myself to the Pistons wasn't bad enough, I was also stuck with the insufferable Bulls feed on NBA League Pass. That, of course, means Stacey King. There were times when I'd lose focus and minimize the game to do something else, only to be drawn back in by King's overdone homerism and "HOT SAUCE!" King tipped me over the edge, though, when he went berserk (with the rest of Chicago) for Brian "The White Mamba" Scalabrine, who is somehow still making a comfortable living in the NBA, because I guess it's hilariously entertaining [H/T Hot Clicks]:


To be fair, as a fan myself of Detroit's polarizing homer, I know plenty of Chicago fans love them some Stacey King like King loves him some White Mamba. Someone went as far as starting a "Stacey King is the greatest announcer" Facebook page, although nobody seems to be in it, and there's a Top 10 Derrick Rose plays called by King. But the most telling sign that an announcer is truly beloved (or at least entertaining) is possessing his own soundboard -- yes, Stacey King has his own soundboard, and even I have to admit, it's pretty phenomenal.
