Chris Webber has been an analyst for TNT broadcasts for over a decade now, which means he has run into his fair share of trolls over the years. This week, he offered a blunt message to those trolls.
“For somebody to be in a pandemic and worry about how a game sounds, that’s great,” Webber said on “The Complex Sports Podcast.”
“To all the fans out there, I’m sorry, I hope it gets better. To people who just want s–t to talk about, f–k you, and to everybody else, it is what it is.”
Webber, who usually announces games with Marv Albert, has long been the subject of ire from NBA fans. It got to the point earlier in 2021 where a fan actually created a petition to get him fired by TNT, though only 33 people signed it.
It’s clear, however, that while Webber is willing to listen and try to improve, he has no time for the social-media trolls out there.
