None of this was relevant, as this story points out: McCants has suffered from back problems, and "spent much of the second half flat on his back in front of the Carolina bench being stretched out by the training staff." Perhaps Vitale couldn't spot that from his nosebleed perch inside Cameron. But ESPN had Jay Bilas there as a sideline reporter, for crying out loud. Was he AWOL? ARRRGGHH!!
Vitale certainly loves basketball, but he rarely comments on the game that's in progress ... the game he's allegedly supposed to call; that's why he's the worst analyst in sports.
