This must be ESPN's "Boom Goes The Dynamite" moment.
After the San Antonio Spurs' win over the Indiana Pacers earlier this month, ESPN broke down the game but apparently failed miserably.
From the get go of the highlight segment, ESPN anchor calls a play between Manu Ginobili and DeJuan Blair as Tim Duncan to Danny Green. Clearly it was wrong and that was just the beginning of this botched highlight package.
The ESPN talking head announces the wrong quarter, refers to Duncan as Pacers' Gerald Green, credits Tony Parker for a shot when it's Gary Neal, and gets nothing right during this segment. Check it out.
Not surprised, this actually happens more often than people think but this is definitely an exaggeration of the media bias towards small markets that don't include Kevin Durant.
You know what's funny? Most people would not have noticed. I bet the anchor felt like an idiot afterwards. I'm sure one of the writers got fired for that too because that does not look favorably on a notable sports source such as ESPN.
It's not her fault, it's whatever she is reading off of in front of her. Whether she's reading off a prompter or some notes she was given, she is not saying these things spontaneously. That, or whoever runs the highlight reels screwed up and didn't put in the right highlights. Tust me, a sports anchor doesn't screw up on people as famous as TIM DUNCAN, MANU GINOBILI AND TONY PARKER!!!
@ajd21 regardless, you would think ESPN would have their act together
