“It feels good,” Adams said when she was asked how she felt to share the news. “I feel proud of our show. You go back and look at those clips from 2016 and it’s this little ‘what is this?’ and it’s me and Kyle trying to get through segments of people we’ve never heard of and these awkward moments and to get to where it is now, this credible, reputable Emmy-nominated, should be Emmy-winning program is a really big accomplishment for the four of us.”

Draymond Green Admits He Was Wrong To Call Kendrick Perkins A Racial Slur

“Regardless of how I may use the word to my friends or how that word may be perceived by anyone else in the world, it was wrong here.”

Draymond Green

In a recent episode of The Draymond Green Show, Green used a word to describe Kendrick Perkins that carries heavy racial undertones. In an impromptu video uploaded to The Volume’s YouTube page, Green admitted that he was wrong to do so.

Green was comparing Perkins to other “hot take” debaters and saying that Perkins didn’t have to do that because “you played”. That’s when he said, “You went from Enforcer to c–n”.

Perkins heard that and responded on Twitter with a video lambasting Green, asking “Hey Draymond you good? The f— wrong with you? Didn’t you just win your fourth championship? What the f— you worried about me for…Forget the old media, forget the new media, Imma stand by the old law and the old law says all that disrespect and all that hoe s— of calling somebody a c—. Man you gotta be f—ed up.”

In the new video from Green, Draymond walked viewers thru learning about the responsibility he says he now has as new media member and one that is a powerful voice.

“The other day, when I was speaking, I used a word that carries a racial connotation. When I used the word, I could have very well replaced the word with clown,” Green said. “I could have very well replaced the word with idiot, moron. I could have replaced the word with anything and continued in stride….The reason being for this episode is for me to come and address that.”

Green referenced being in New York and having conversations with Commissioner Adam Silver and NBA Executive Vice President and Head of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars in which he said he did not realize the severity of the word he used and learned from Dumars about the word’s history during their conversation.

“For me, it’s like, stop acting corny. You’re on some weird type stuff. That’s whack,” Green explained. “For me, in using the word, that’s what I was implying. However, in understanding that everyone didn’t grow up in Saginaw, Michigan. Everyone didn’t grow up with my friends. This is such a huge moment for growth in learning for me being rookie in this business and understanding that word does not mean the same thing to everyone.”

There are a lot of people out there that are going to see that and say ‘that’s a racial thing’ and as someone who stands against racism, has stood against it for years, and who is not afraid to get out in front of it, I can admit, right here, that I was wrong. Regardless of how I may use the word to my friends or how that word may be perceived by anyone else in the world, it was wrong here.”

Erin Andrews: Tom Brady Excited to Join FOX Booth “But Not Now”

“Tom has been very, very, Tom-ish and PC,” Andrews recalls. “He’s just like ‘I’m excited but not now’. And I appreciate that from him.

In an offseason loaded with commentator and broadcaster movement, one in particular stands firm. Erin Andrews has chosen to stay with FOX and will remain on the sideline with the network’s top game choice of the week. She will team with Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen.

Beyond this year is anyone’s guess because Tom Brady lurks in the broadcasting mist. He inked a massive deal earlier this year to join FOX when his playing days were over. But they aren’t and according to Erin Andrews, he is still very much in that mindset.

Andrews joined Jimmy Traina on the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast and brought up her reaction to the Brady hiring news, but also Tom Brady’s reaction when she called to congratulate him.

“He (Brady) didn’t pick up. What are you working out or something? We left a voicemail. Then I reached out to him on my own and just said I am so excited. It’s been a dream to cover you, now it’s going to be a dream to work with you. Whenever in the hell that’s going to be.”

Andrews, as alluded, didn’t get immediate feedback from her eventual colleague and she understands the mindset.

“Tom has been very, very, Tom-ish and PC,” Andrews recalls. “He’s just like ‘I’m excited but not now’. And I appreciate that from him.”

“He’s like, ‘I can’t worry about that right now,’ and he’s not… He’s got his season to worry about, we got our season to worry about. We got a Super Bowl this year, we got an entirely new crew and I’m excited about it.”
