The entity that is ESPN continues to blow my mind every single day. Last night Donyell Marshall hilariously forgot to wear his jersey onto the court before the tip of last night's Cavs-Sonics game last night. Marshall was wearing a "wife beater" underneath his warmups and Stan Verrett referred to it as such.
All was well and good until the powers that be decided that Verrett needed to apologize for something. Take a look....
Are you kidding me? I know it's not one of the best nicknames for a product, but this just blows my mind. It would have been one thing if Verrett said, "And Donyell isn't prepared for the game, but he's prepared to beat his wife", but he didn't. He just referred to what the garment is called.
It wasn't even two weeks ago that we were searching for answers regarding expletives at a public roast and not getting a response until a week after the incident. Maybe this was a preemptive strike, but it just solidifies how out of touch ESPN's management is with reality these days. Just amazing.
