Audio Of Rachel Nichols Venting To LeBron When ESPN's Maria Taylor Given NBA Finals Gig
© Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports
Audio obtained by the New York Times has been leaked of ESPN NBA host Rachel Nichols venting her frustrations when fellow ESPN host Maria Taylor was given NBA Finals duties during last year's NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida...
Per the report, Nichols’ comments have caused serious damage within the network over the past year...
quote:

ESPN has been trying, and often failing, to deal with the scandal for months. But a fast-approaching deadline is forcing the network to show at least some of its cards. Taylor’s contract expires during the N.B.A. finals, which start on Tuesday between the Phoenix Suns and the Milwaukee Bucks, yet few substantive steps have been taken toward a new deal even though Pitaro has identified Taylor as one of ESPN’s rising stars.

Whether or not ESPN and Taylor agree on a contract, the internal damage from the past year has been substantial.

Absolutely not. Will she be cancelled for it? Absolutely.

I’d be more likely to watch them slather up in baby oil and wrestle it out than I’d be wanting to watch the actual NBA.

That moment when Rachel Nichols realized not all woke cards are created equal.

When being female isn't enough.... You need another diversity checkmark, race, sexuality, gender, etc. Welcome to the roaring 20s.

Wgaf? All those broads suck at their jobs and are only given any assignment so ESPN can avoid the bad pub. Men are better at it no doubt

Rachel needs to check her privilege.

The problem with the playing the victim card is there is always someone higher on the victim totem pole. White woman < black woman < gay black woman < gay black transgender woman < disabled gay black transgender woman …… eventually you come full circle to a white man who identifies as all these things and then start over.

The diversity crap will settle out when corporations start losing a lot of money when promoting a crap product

ESPN is dead to me - if they are the only outlet for an LSU game, & they often are w/the SEC network, etc., I'll pirate the broadcast before giving them any viewership numbers. Let them cat fight all they want

This is a stupid take. Maria Taylor is damn good at her job. I’d rather see her than Nichols any day of the week.

Why is it that Rachel went straight to diversity? Why couldn’t it be Maria is better at the job?
