LeBron James reacts to Wizards’ announcer’s horrible reference to Kevin Porter Jr’s late father on game winner!
Glenn Consor said Porter ‘like his dad, pulled that trigger right at the right time’.
Oh he thought this was cool huh!!?? Nah we ain’t going for this! Sorry but this ain’t going to fly! How insensitive can you be to say something like this. Beat it man! I pray for you but there’s no place in our beautiful game for you! https://t.co/UgVOBUOsPK— LeBron James (@KingJames) January 6, 2022
Porter Jr.’s father, Bryan Kevin Porter Sr., pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in a shooting death of a 14-year-old girl in 1993. He was sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison. Porter Sr. died in 2004 after being shot in a South Seattle bar. The Rocket’s star was 4 years old when his father was killed.
Many believe Consor was thinking that Kevin Porter Jr. was former Washington Bullets star Kevin Porter son. Porter spent his first three years as Washington Bullet and his last four years as Bullet. He was in the NBA for 13 years.
Okay, just occurred to me that Kevin Porter did play for the Bullets for like 3-4 seasons back in the day. Being in Washington, this announcer must have assumed that was KPJ's dad https://t.co/k5aLl9tihf— Jason Williams (@AstroRocket) January 6, 2022
Okay he either specifically knows a lot of details about KPJ or none and thinks his dad is the other Kevin Porter. Hopefully it’s the latter!!— Liv (@heyitslivagain) January 6, 2022
This is crazy. However, I believe there used to be a Kevin Porter who played for the Bullets. He’s not KPJ’s dad. Don’t think he was being this sick, but you should do your homework, kids. https://t.co/yeUbEmpaY5— James Edwards III (@JLEdwardsIII) January 6, 2022
don’t know why that wizards announcer thought kevin porter jr was the son of NBA guard kevin porter … and at the same time, I’m not sure if he knew KPJ’s backstory because it does involve tragedy with his dad.— Brandon Caldwell (@_brandoc) January 6, 2022
just a bad, bad call period.
