The 10 greatest L.A. Kings of all time -- No. 7: Bob Miller
We continue in our series of listing the top 10 L.A. Kings of all time as chosen by readers of latimes.com/sports.
No. 7: Bob Miller (104 first-place votes, 4,920 points)
The legendary Kings announcer received the fourth-most first-place votes, but finished eighth because he was left off about half of the ballots.
Miller just finished his 37th season as the voice of the Kings, the first 17 years simulcast on TV and radio and the last 20 years as the exclusive television voice of the team. He was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2000.
Miller, Chick Hearn and Vin Scully, the best play-by-play men in their respective sports, all work, or worked, for L.A. teams, making the fans in Los Angeles very fortunate.
On a personal note, whenever I see hockey highlights on TV, whether it is from the Kings or some other team, the play-by-play voice in my head is Bob Miller, the greatest hockey announcer of all time.
No. 10: Charlie Simmer
No. 9: Bernie Nicholls
No. 8: Rob Blake
