Illustration for article titled Media Approval Ratings: Gus Johnson

For some reason, we tend to forgive Gus Johnson for sins we'd find unforgivable in other broadcasters. He's high histrionics, high volume, high intensity, high volume, high pitch, all of it. He's 95 percent bluster. Of course, this is why we love him.

Or do we? Does the sugary drip of Gus Johnson weigh too heavily on the soul the further we get away from him? Can we really forgive the screaming of that Gonzaga-UCLA game? Is that what we really want from a broadcaster? Does he lose points for trying to negotiate a peace agreement with Isiah Thomas and Bill Simmons? You make the call.


Do you like the Gus Johnson? Do you not like the Gus Johnson? Let us know.
