    NBA will fire the broadcaster.

    Lebron James is mad and Adam Silver sucks him off every chance he gets.

    That Kevin Porter could still father a child right now if he wanted to. The 10th US president, John Tylor, was born in 1790 and fathered his last child at 70. He still has a living grandson today!

    Don't understand why LBJ can't apply some common sense here and understand it was an honest mistake. Like give the benefit of the doubt first before jumping head first with your input dude. The worst the commentator can be accused of is poor research.

    I just don't understand why someone would immediately think that it wasn't an honest mistake that the announcer confused KPJ for being the son of Kevin Porter. I wondered the same thing when he was traded and looked it up. And to have a guy immediately say he should fired and keep the tweet up because it's doing numbers since Lebron James retweeted it is garbage.

    Lol well he's probably not doing the math in his head, you know? I doubt he looked up the age of Kevin Porter, he's just an old dude who has in the back of his mind that Kevin Porter played a while back, probably couldn't tell you if it was early 70s or late 80s. This dude isn't doing calculations, just made a bad assumption without giving it too much though.

    I'm glad that he reached out to KPJ personally to apologize too, it's not just the public twitter apology.

    Had no idea about Porters father.

    But I do remember Worrell, multiple times, referring to Isiah Thomas as the son of Pistons Isiah Thomas. It's pretty easy for me to see Hanlons Razor in effect here.

    And f**k Lebron

    I don’t think it’s an excuse to destroy someone but when players do or say something stupid, don’t the media go after them? I think this is the same thing.

    I’m not even saying he should be cancelled. I’m saying, just like they tell athletes, do research before you come out with something like that. Regardless if that’s the team you’re covering or an opponent.

    He’s been with the Wizards for 22 years, you’d think he would know when Kevin Porter played for the team, or at the very least that he is old as hell. Pretty lazy to just assume that KPJr is his son

    Glenn Consor apologized and unless he has a track record of doing stuff like this given another opportunity. KPJ better than anyone else should appreciate the power of forgiveness and second chances.

    I'm just glad that LeBron was there to insert his dumb ass into the conversation for Kevin.

    If color/analysts were selected for this we'd have a bunch of Zac Lowes and Kevin Arnoviz or whatever. Rather it's the closed off domain of ex players and coaches, because it kind of just is.

    And most guys in the NBA don't go by Jr unless their dad was a thing. For example we never called #13, James Harden Jr. So if you see Kevin Porter, Jr, and you know Kevin Porter was a good prod basketball player, well...

    This is not a big deal at all but of course the Twitter mob is coming after him thanks to LeBron.

    When you makes mistakes, it’s easier to be forgiving. KPJ should take the high road and say that the comments brought up difficult memories but that he understands the mistake and he forgives him.

    Instant humanity points.

    I think it's a really tragic coincidence. I also think it's very lazy for an announcer to just assume an NBA player is a former player's son. Espeically considering the former player was a Wizards player. It's one thing for us fans to just assume people are randomly related, but as an official announcer you would think to Google something like that before saying it in public so confidently.
