Karen Rovell Was An Emotional Wreck During NBA Finals National Anthem

Videos by OutKick

What a week it has been for Karen Rovell. It’s been emotional. It’s been trying. It’s been so difficult to exist. Imagine your only job is to tweet about baseball cards, how many diapers Patrick Mahomes can buy with his new contract per game, and how emotional it was to watch the National Anthem during Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Rovell, in one of his most Rovellian moments, got emotional thinking about everything this country has been through this week, especially the Presidential debate on Tuesday. Add in a “sad sounding” anthem Wednesday night before Lakers-Heat and this hopeless soul will need to go on a Toni Robbins book bender to get his mind right.

Karen wrote “there is nothing tremendous about this content,” Tuesday night during the debate and has since gone on to pen a dozen or so tweets about the debate.

Imagine the struggle the D is going through right now from his million-dollar house in a beautiful community thinking about how the world is so messed up, then getting masked up to go talk to his rich neighbors — while sipping Topo Chico hard seltzers that were dropped at his door by the brand hoping he’d tweet about their product — about how Trump was so rude to Chris Wallace. It must be a hard life.

  1. I’m still trying to figure out how a theater major from Northwestern gets hired right out of college as a “Sports Business” expert by ESPN. But then again, perhaps it makes perfect sense.

  2. What a total loser. I don’t even know who that clown is nor do I care and so glad I don’t do Twitter with these kinds of clowns. What a complete loser and who really cares what that dude says. Twitter and media are destroying the US and really just get off the sewer Twitter and cut off all cable news (all of them including foxnews). It’s all fear and hate.

  3. Clay should get Chad Dukes of 106.7 on the show. He had it out with Rovell a few days ago.

    Rovell’s rabbit ears heard Chad Dukes take issue with his girly attitude. Schooled him respectfully, but it was awesome.

    Sports media guys are whiny little B_tches 😷
