ESPN will take Rachel Nichols off the sidelines for the NBA Finals and replace her with Malika Andrews in response to year-old audio that leaked on Sunday.
ESPN sent the following statement to OutKick:
“We believe this is best decision for all concerned in order to keep the focus on the NBA Finals. Rachel will continue to host The Jump.”
Think about this: the pathetic leaker didn’t just hold and release the audio to assist in Maria Taylor’s unreasonable demands, but that person has also damaged Rachel Nichols’ career.
At ESPN, race-baiting leakers are more powerful than Jimmy Pitaro, who has officially lost his locker room.
ESPN has also canceled Nichols’ daily tv show, The Jump, for July 6, 2021.
