  • They all call different sports but how would u rate....Kevin Calabro, Dave Niehaus, and Steve Raible. Who has the best voice and calls the game best at their respective sport. Can't go wrong with any of the three.

    Mines from best to worse....
    1. Kevin Calabro
    2. Dave Niehaus
    3. Steve Raible

  • I don't know, that's a though call for me between Calabro and Raible, but Niehaus no slouch either. I would probably say Calabro.

    Seattle as a city we are blessed to have come across great play by play sports commentators. I agree Niehaus isn't no slouch. He brings more excitement to the game of baseball than the national guys on ESPN or Fox.

    Calabro will always be a Sonic first, but the man's gotta feed his family.

    Niehaus will always have a warm place in my heart, but the question is who calls the game best, so IMO it's not even close, it's Calabro. Dude's electric on the mic.

    How is it odd? Calabro was calling Sonics games long before being the voice of the blazers.

  • Colabro is my choice followed by Niehaus and then Raible.

    Colabro is considered one of the best, pretty sure he still does the NBA Finals on the national radio broadcast. I honestly don't care that much for Raible. He is solid, probably somewhere in the middle of the pack in comparison with other teams local broadcasters.

    I'd definitely put Gross above Raible. It's too bad Gross didn't have a whole lot to get excited about over most of his career.

  • Kevin's voice is so iconic.
    In 1995-96 I coached his son Nick in little league baseball.
    Having him in the stands and st practice was weird. "Oh ali babba ".

    I couldn't pick between them all. Pete Gross was pretty stellar as well.

  • Obviously the kiddies can't know that some of us have a level that even though very good the current selection doesn't meet standards set we have heard. Pete Gross, Bob Blackburn, Bob Rondeau and Keith Jackson. set a table that we have been fortunate enough to have had guys like Raible, Calabro, follow.

    As great as Calabro is I was not happy to see Bob Blackburn replaced, he will always be the voice of the Sonics to me.

    What I wouldn't give to hear "Whoa, Nellie!" on Saturday morning television again. Keith Jackson was awesome, and all class. For my money, he was the greatest national announcer ever. Period.
