Title: NBA announcer Grant Napear fired over ‘All Lives Matter’ comment

Grant Napear was fired by his radio station and resigned as the Sacramento Kings TV play-by-play announcer Tuesday after his tweet that said “All Lives Matter” amid the George Floyd protests was met with backlash.

Napear, a graduate of Syosset High School on Long Island, tweeted “All Lives Matter…Every Single One!” on Sunday after former Kings star DeMarcus Cousins asked the 60-year-old for his view on the Black Lives Matter movement.

The phrase, “All Lives Matter,” is seen by many as mocking the Black Lives Matter movement, which began in 2013 as a campaign against systematic racism and violence toward black people.

Black Lives Matter has become the driver of protests over police brutality and racial injustice all over the country after Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died at the hands of police last week in Minneapolis.

The parent company of KHTK, the station in which Napear hosted his namesake show, said “the timing of Grant’s tweet was particularly insensitive.” Napear had been placed on leave by the station Monday.

The Kings didn’t address the tweet in its statement, according to ESPN, only saying that they wished Napear the best and thanked him for his service to the organization.

In an apology posted Monday by the Sacramento Bee, Napear said he was “not as educated on BLM as I thought. I had no idea that when I said ‘All Lives Matter’ that it was counter to what BLM is trying to get across.”

But Cousins did not seem surprised by Napear’s controversial tweet.

“Lol, as expected,” he replied.

Chris Webber, who also played for the Kings, wrote, “Demarcus we know and have known who grant is. The team knows as well. I’ve told them many times. They’ve seen it. They know who he is.”

Webber added two clown emojis.

While it was unclear what exactly Cousins and Webber were referring to, the Sacramento Bee reported that Napear previously was criticized for defending disgraced former Clippers owner Donald Sterling, saying that Sterling couldn’t be racist because he employed black people.

“I want to thank the fans for their overwhelming love and support,” Napear said in a statement Tuesday. “I will always remain a part of Kings nation in my heart.”

Napear had been the Kings announcer since 1988.

What's wrong with what he said?

I see Dumbya crawling out from under his rock with a brand new cowboy hat. Real cowboys have grease stains in theirs.

AND?????

It SHOULD be mocked because the what is implicit,if unstated,is that ONLY black lives matter.

Imagine for a moment,a protest march by crackas,waving signs that state "White Lives Matter",and the media response to it.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

Nothing in fact, but a lot politically & economically. He's in the basketball profession. Well, which sport has a disproportionally high number of black minority players AND fans? Basketball.

The NBA, knowing this, decided throwing him under the bus was the most equitable way to respond.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.
