Quotes from the news wire:
So, the first thing they teach you in journalism school is do n’t be the story. And I do n’t plan to break that rule today or distract from a fantastic Finals, but I also do n’t want to let this moment pass without saying how much I respect, how much I value our colleagues here at ESPN. How deeply, deeply sorry I am for disappointing those I hurt, particularly Maria Taylor, and how grateful I am to be part of this outstanding team.
I wish Maria Taylor all the success in the world — she covers football, she covers basketball, if you need to give her more things to do because you are feeling pressure about your crappy longtime record on diversity — which, by the way, I know personally from the female side of it — like, go for it. Just find it somewhere else. You are not going to find it from me or taking my thing away.
Rachel Nichols said it was surprising and disappointing that the NBA did not do the same especially when it had tributes for civil rights icon John Lewis and actor Chadwich Boseman. If you are a league that holds equality as a core value, and I know for sure that this league does, the icons of that equality cant be those who just helped the men that we all see on TV but those who paved the way for the women who worked right alongside them, after all, the NBA is significantly stronger because of all the women who work in it and around it. And we are all significantly stronger because a young lawyer dedicated her life to allow us to have those opportunities. WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert released a statement on Bader Ginsburg death on Friday two days before the Las Vegas Aces and Connecticut Sun played their playoff game. Sad to hear of the passing of an icon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a role model, and a champion for equality for so many.
