Fox Sports announcer Brian Davis might be in some serious trouble after a comment he made about Russell Westbrook Wednesday night.
The Oklahoma City guard had an incredible game against the Memphis Grizzlies, and Davis at one point states that Westbrook is, “out of his cotton-picking mind.”
Did he just say “Westbrook is out of his cotton-picking mind”?….. pic.twitter.com/fvPZ5cTkjx

The Thunder haven’t reacted to the statement yet, according to TMZ. Yeah, this is not good at all, and there’s no spin zone here.
It’s comments like these that get careers killed. I’m not the kind of person who calls for people to be fired, and I’m not doing that here. I think the mob rule mentality after mistakes is one of the worst things about America.
However, I just don’t know how the Thunder and Fox Sports don’t make a major move here, especially given the demographics of the NBA and its fanbase. Davis might be in a world of hurt here. Stay tuned to find out what happens.
