    I’m just confused how this is true but mike brown hasn’t been hired. He’s paid his dues and deserves another try at head coach

    He’s ecstatic that no Asians were hired

      I’d like to see that tho

    They should also be fired if they can’t do the job. Color shouldn’t be a basis for hiring

    White ppl thumbing down this video and showing their racist self as usual 💯😂

      When are Asians gonna be considered for hires 🤔 maybe not because they’re not dependent on others to achieve their goals like most other races

    In their summer of discontent, after the ‘foot-in-the-mouth’ suffered by Stephen A. and Rachel Nichols, ESPN is finding out with painful consequences, “YOU LIVE BY THE WOKE, YOU DIE BY THE WOKE!”.

    What is Rachel Nichols opinion on this topic tho? Why didn’t she cover this story?

    I will again ask this question have you ever heard a Black person complain about the lack of Black coaches in hockey? I rest my case

    Ok usually I understand u guys complaining about him bringing up race but you read the title and are still complaining like u didn’t expect this😭

    Color not basis for hiring. Nba is like all black.
    why won’t they draft white American nba players

    White chocolate is more black than Stephen A

    People complained when he said this before but the final 4 coaches in the NBA playoffs were all new black coaches who didn’t get opportunities right away.

    I think the point he’s trying to make. He’s tired of seeing black coaches fired for building up teams and hire a white guy and he gets all the credit.

    Mark Jackson fired. Steve kerr super team-> Looked at as a genius.
    Dwayne Casey fired. Nick nurse takes over wins looks like a genius.
    They fire Alvin gentry when they see the upside of ingram being an all star and zion being zion. Bring in Stan van gundy.
    The rockets coach stuck rebuilding that team. After Daryl morey and Mike dantoni leaves… crazy cycle

      Dwayne Casey was fired by a black dude. And Dwayne Casey got out coached in that cavs series. And mark jackson ran a stagnant offense and Steve Kerr improved it

      @Saral Khare thank you. When people are blinded and consumed with race they ignore other factors..

    I’m happy with all the hires except Jason kidd

  15. Polatoglou C.

    July 19, 2021 at 2:30 pm

    Do they say Jason Kidd is black or am I missing something here ???

    If they wind up sucking he better still ask for their jobs.

    Equality vs Equity is a conversation that should absolutely happen around here.

    You are making it about race scrub!

    So if its white privilege for majority of coaches and owners being white. Is it not black privilege for 70-80% player being black

  20. Benjamin From The Tribe of Judah

    But we still gotta know why you was at them colleges and high schools boy, you ain’t pro black you’re pro white zaddy. As a man you shouldn’t want another man to give you flowers, have it be hypothetical flowers or real ones. 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️
