87-year-old Hubie Brown is an NBA broadcasting legend, but he wasn’t sounding too good while calling the Bucks-Warriors Christmas day game, and fans were worried about his health.
Early in the game, it sounded like Hubie could barely talk and was forcing himself to get through the game despite being extremely hoarse.

I hope it's just Hubie Brown's mic that's making him sound like this because he sounds sick :/
