Announcer Says Black Player Is 'Out Of His Cotton-Picking Mind'

Share

A basketball announcer caught many viewers off guard this week when he used a derogatory and historically racist term to describe the shooting style of an NBA point guard on Wednesday evening.

The Thunder have even issued a statement condemning the comments yesterday, and Davis was suspended by Fox Sports on Friday.

The announcer who made the questionable "Cotton-Picking" call during Wednesday's season finale between the Memphis Grizzlies & Oklahoma City Thunder did not escape without punishment.

Russell Westbrook, who achieved his 25th triple-double of the season during the game, sank a three-point shot from the corner of the court, an undeniably hard shot to make, though one he did easily thanks to a fake pass move he made to thwart off a defender.

The phrase "cotton-picking" is sometimes used in the context of being hard or a nuisance.

"We find the term used by Brian Davis on our broadcast last night to be highly inappropriate and offensive".

Mahoney told The Norman Transcript he was unsure whether Davis would apologize for the comment the next time he was behind the mic.

Davis apologized publicly in a statement given to ESPN. "Again, we've expressed to him strongly that it was offensive and inappropriate, and that's all we can do for right now".

"We've discussed it with the announcer and let him know that".
