No more “FOR THE LOVE OF LEVITATION THERE GOES FLIGHT NUMBER 23 TAKING OFF FROM THE CORNER OF ONTARIO AND HURON AND FLYING DOWN FROM THE RAFTERS WITH AN ABOSOLUTELY THUNDEROUS DUNK BRINGING THE PACKED HOUSE HERE AT THE Q TO THEIR FEET!”

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that longtime Cavs play-by-play man Michael Reghi has been “let go” and will be replaced by Detroit sportscaster Fred McLeod. Reghi had two more years left on his contract but the team bought him out today. Reghi will remain on FSN Ohio as a host for a nightly studio show on the Cleveland Browns training camp.
I have never been a huge Reghi fan. I can understand his appeal—he often sounds like an overly-excited, smooth-speaking uncle; this can be nice for broadcasts—but I was never his largest fan. That said, Austin Carr is the Joe Morgan of basketball commentary and Steve Williams is a cheerleader (though he did improve late last season). Both of them should have been replaced before Reghi.
