    The rumor mill didn’t stop there. It also had her hooking up with Ersan Ilyasova. Whatever. Prolly started on Reddit, a.k.a the suppository of credible information.

    Yeah the idea of on air talent fooling around with a player in the bubble isn't a good look. Nevermind the fact that she is married with kids.

    I’m pretty sure that’s literally what happened. I think I recall even seeing a tweet along those lines, someone bragging about how since everyone was hating on Nichols for her leaked phone call, that they could probably make up a rumor about her hooking up with a random NBA player and everyone would believe them.

    And they did. Those Butler and Ilyasova memes spread like wildfire that week. And since the memes were funny… that just throws more fuel to the fire and causes more and more people to buy in.

    It’s honestly pretty disgusting. There is no substance to any of these rumors and she’s a married woman. I’m fine with hating on her for her NBA content. I’d be fine with calling her out if there was actual evidence that she was sleeping around and cheating on her husband.

    But just spreading this stuff because it’s funny and cool to hate on her at the moment isn’t cool IMO.

    You’re right. It is pathetic behavior to do that, but (not to excuse) this is common in this kind of business, and she knows it, and so does her husband of 20 years. The fact that she never dignified any of these rumors with a response shows she’s way above these idiots, and doesn’t give a s***, nor should she.

    Mock media types for their takes or whatever, sure, but leave personal lives out of it. (Hoping everyone saw how obviously over the top ridiculous my Beverly post was).

    Yeah for sure, I don’t think anyone here said anything out of line, moreso just had issue with the people on Twitter and Reddit spreading it like fact at the time.

    But if it’s not too late to share obviously over the top but hilarious content on this topic… I couldn’t help but lmao at this

    I read that in Chick Hern's voice. It made me laugh for quite a while. Especially since the word too trailed off for a long time in my head.

    From what I understand, he’s completely washed up and Brooklyn only signed him because he’s very good friends with their stars. They soon learned during last season that he was unplayable.

    His skillset is also redundant with Dwight here. He’s pretty much a worse version of Dwight. Even if we do end up parting ways with Gasol, I don’t think Jordan makes the most sense as a replacement. I’d rather take Boogie, someone who can somewhat replace Gasol’s floor spacing.

    I agree 100%

    Boogie played good last year in limited minutes and if he gets hurt again we can get a player exemption right or sign him to a non guaranteed
