Earlier this week, NBA star Klay Thompson—Who has history here?–public at NBA 2K CZK marketing guy Ronnie Singh, both in terms of his skill ratings in this year’s game, but more interestingly, when he appeared on an ESPN show. He apologized for all of that.
While complaints about his ratings are expected from a professional athlete with a social media presence, I think his comments about Singh’s guest segment on NBA Today are worth it. for a closer look. Calling Singh a “clown,” Thompson said. “I thought NBA on ESPN was meant to cover some of the best athletes in the world? Don’t interview a promoter… do better than ESPN. “
I think he was right! Although a certain level of participation is inevitable, 2K line is Street too closely tied to brands and broadcasters, which is a big reason why the series is out of dateand I think it’s great that Thompson calls him that, even if his initial approach could have gone more smoothly.
WOODI had time to think, however, Thompson was cool and decided that an apology was appropriate, taking to Instagram to write:
I want to apologize to @ronnie2k. I was in my feelings about a fictitious rating and I vented my anger towards him by trolling in the comments. Cyberbullying is super lame and losing behavior and for that, I apologize man.
He may also have been touched by Singh’s appearance and banner during last night’s Golden State game against the Lakers:
This is a pity, because while his disagreement over ratings is really annoying, his promoter’s comments are solid! For those of you I’d love to see Klay do the same thing I would tell any of you in a similar situation:
Ah good. At least that’s a good apology. Truly one of the best I’ve seen in the age of social media!
