Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson are abysmal. Perhaps they say one useful comment throughout the course of a single broadcast, but for the most part, Van Gundy is more interested in disagreeing with every living creature while Mark Jackson attempts to develop the world's worst catch phrase.

You can actually hear Mike Breen dying on air because of these two.

In Game 3, Van Gundy claimed to have come up with the nickname "Serge I-block-a" off the off of his head, ignoring Ibaka's entire career up til that point.

And it goes beyond the goofiness, as they are also both bad at analysis. Van Gundy, for example, claimed that the Warriors lineup in Game 3 wouldn't make the playoffs over the course of a full season. A lineup with former MVP Steph Curry, former MVP candidate Draymond Green, former All-NBA players in Demarcus Cousins and Andre Iguodala.

This is clearly ESPN/ABC sticking with their formula of resorting to clickbait and hot takes to generate buzz, not to demonstrate any sort of depth or quality in the broadcast. Meanwhile, a Hall of Famer in Doris Burke is relegated to being a sideline reporter.

Please salvage the final games of the Finals.
