Why use an American voice over in the intro

It sounds a bit try hard to me. I think are good Aussie voice over guys out there

I hate this with a passion too. Also no idea why an American does the top ten plays either. NBL is a solid Australian product and otherwise generally free of American flavour (bar a few of the naturalised commentators) so the NA accent is jarring and weird.

I don't mind the guy who voices the top ten plays.

I’m pretty sure this is a play to capture attention from a greater audience, as he also voices top plays on NBA TV (or used to).

It's an Aussie putting on an accent which makes it even worse

He's talking about the intro dude not the top ten plays guy Ben.

Got that mate, I should've made it a little clearer I was referring to CT’s post.

I think the top ten is cringeworthy but don't have a problem with the intro. To each their own.

Regardless of the accent, I think the intro thing is just a bit over-dramatized.
