♂️ Nothing to say but WOW SPEECHLESS! Grant has been teetering on the edge of this 1/2 his career. Whether you agree with Grant Napear or not, him having to resign from the Kings is outrageous. His tweets and responses are a direct reflection on khtk since he’s the biggest sports radio personality in Sacramento. “Grant Napear has resigned from the Sacramento Kings. If it were up to the generals in charge, very few of us would be here right now. I don’t know if you’ve turned on the TV lately, but America is on fire with mass civil unrest following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota. In my experience corporations only do the right thing if not doing the right thing impacts their bottom line. The country is seemingly coming apart at the seams. It seems almost poetic that DMC is basically the one that brought him down all these years later. Now that I think about it, maybe TKH has the negative vote counts visible because of comments about “the Silent Majority”. He said something stupid, and even dumber considering he was an NBA announcer. We’re going to continue fighting, we’re going to continue to push, we’re going to continue to use our voices.”. . But there are still plenty of questions about what will actually happen in Philadelphia. https://t.co/8SMUvNvBX5, “We are saddened by the comments Grant Napear recently made on Twitter,” Bonneville International Corporation, 1140’s parent company said in an official press release. https://t.co/Gsh84BPBEk. I always loved his radio show with Jason Ross. — DeMarcus Cousins (@boogiecousins) June 1, 2020. I’ve told them many times. Thanks for the good times, Grant! So do black lives matter? “I will always remain a part of Kings nation in my heart.”, “His recent comments about the Black Lives Matter movement do not reflect the views or values of Bonneville International Corporation,” the media company that owns Sports 1140 said in a statement announcing the change. In the end, he just could’t resist the bait. I always liked him. Please do not make anymore banners or interpret anything that pertains to the shitshow of 2020. I've lived by that ideal every day of my life! https://t.co/Gsh84BPBEk. — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) September 23, 2020. We thank him for his contributions to the team and wish him all the best.” — Jason Jones (@mr_jasonjones) June 2, 2020 TMZ also reportedthat Napear was fired from KHTK Sports 1140 “following the backlash.” I'm sorry!'. Like, OF COURSE it was. We thank him for his contributions to the team and wish him all the best.” But Boston has been just a little too erratic, which is why Miami has the key 3-1 lead. And I don’t think he would be a good play-by-play announcer. I’m a little disappointed in how C-Webb has turned out as an announcer. I've been doing more listening than talking the past few days. Grant totally did this to himself, and deserves the repercussions. And, of course, that’s just taking it from the cynical “capitalistic” POV. Dave’s basketball hero goaded dave’s broadcasting hero into getting himself fired. Now with the visible negative vote counts, we can truly see if there is a silent majority or not. Napear, fighting back tears multiple times, spoke to the New York Post about the tweet that lead to his demise. https://t.co/Gsh84BPBEk. Hey!!!! Well, well, well, if it isn’t the consequences of my own actions. It’s a thin line between love and hate. Instead, he yet again let his hubris take control and give an all-too typical insensitive and small minded jab at someone who dared to have a different life experience that he did. Scot Pollard, Gary Gerould, and Doug would be great. In 2019, Napear called Cousins “the rudest, crudest, most vile player that I have ever been around in my 31 years in the NBA,” after Cousins cursed out Raptors fans who cheered the injury of Kevin Durant during the Finals. Covid19, and the world’s subsequent handling of it, already started to really illuminate the strengths and weaknesses of our systems. Cousins (who I dislike intensely) merely showed him where to start. If not, I doubt he voluntarily will want to live in ‘cow town’ again if he doesn’t have to. Apparently, according to Grant, it’s reasonable to think Walton is a bad coach and to not like him as a coach for the Kings, but it isn’t reasonable to think he should be fired. If it came across as dumb I apologize. The league shut down for three days last month when a boycott that was started by the Milwaukee Bucks – in response to the shooting by police of a Black man, Jacob Blake, in Kenosha, Wisconsin – nearly caused players to end the season because they felt their pleas for change were not being taken seriously enough. His interaction with Boogie wasn’t remotely as bad as many I’ve seen, but it’s the cherry on a sundae that he’s been serving up for years: he’s small-minded, mean-spirited, and resistant to changing any of his entrenched opinions or beliefs. We are a Sacramento Kings blog dedicated to providing independent coverage of the team. I previously thought radio play-by-play and TV play-by-play were different animals, with more description necessary for radio.
