Houston Rockets detractor Rachel Nichols makes embarrassing headlines

On Sunday, audio was captured of the oftentimes-ill-advised, loquacious Nichols expressing her displeasure with fellow ESPN African-American rising star Maria Taylor getting the nod to host the 2020 NBA Finals coverage.

On the audio, Nichols stated:

“So they said to me, hey instead of hosting the NBA Finals, why don’t you do Doris’s sideline reporter job for the NBA Finals? Because guess what that would clear the way for?

They are feeling pressure because of all of that. If you need to give her more things to do because of your crappy, longtime record on diversity, go for it.

Just find it somewhere else. You’re not going to find it with me.”

Oh boy, where do we start here?
