“I stand by my tweet. I stand by everything I said. Asi que, let’s just say, he thought that was the case. We get scouting reports on players, and I know you guys from the media all get memos and stuff for players and stuff before the game, derecho?” James dijo, vía Lakers Daily.
“Y’all get like packets of stuff when y’all come to the game and what’s going on and game play. And I believe that – I’m not a play-by-play person, analyst – but I believe that they do they due diligence as well when they get their reports on teams that they’re about to play as well as their own team, derecho?
“Asi que, I was actually watching the game live last night when I heard, and I waited. I didn’t do it right away as you see with my tweet, I was watching the game. Asi que, if that’s the case, if I am a play-by-play announcer, derecho, and I’m covering a team – my local team – in his case he’s covering the Wizards. So he remembers the Kevin Porter who used to play for the [Washington] Bullets, correcto?
“The first thing I would have done, hubiera dicho, ‘Kevin Porter Jr. is coming into town, let me see if that’s his son.’ I would’ve did that due diligence way before, and I think everyone on this call would have did the same thing.”
After Porter hit the game-winner, Consor said: “What a well-designed play. You gotta give him credit. … Kevin Porter Jr., like his dad, pulled that trigger right at the right time.”

James hit Consor with a disparaging tweet the morning after the shot.
“Oh he thought this was cool huh!!?? Nah we ain’t going for this! Sorry but this ain’t going to fly! How insensitive can you be to say something like this. Beat it man! I pray for you but there’s no place in our beautiful game for you!” el escribio.
Consor apologized in a tweet, saying he thought the Rockets player was the son of former Washington Bullets player Kevin Porter, who was with the organization for six seasons.
“Please allow me to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to Kevin Porter Jr., his family and the Rockets organization for the comments I made during last night’s game,” Consor said.
“I mistakenly thought that Kevin was the son of former Washington player Kevin Porter and was unaware that the words I chose to describe his game-winning shot would be in any way hurtful or insensitive. I have reached out to Kevin personally apologize and hope to be able to talk with him soon.”
