Was OKC Announcer Racist for Saying Russell Westbrook Is Out of His Cotton-Pickin Mind? (Video)


Could Brian Davis have been that unaware of whats going on in the world today that he really said this? The Fox Sports NBA analyst stated that Oklahoma City Thunder point guard was “out of his cotton-pickin’ mind” during Wednesday night’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies.


Thunder officials released this statement on the matter:
“We find the term used by Brian Davis on our broadcast last night to be highly inappropriate and offensive.”

“We’ve discussed it with the announcer and let him know that. He assures us it was not meant in any sort of offensive or derogatory manner and he apologizes.”

“Nonetheless, he’s been told the use of that term in any manner is unacceptable.”
The use of the term “cotton-pickin'” is questionable in this day and time, regardless if the announcer is racist or not.
