FWIW - just caught the ESPN rehearsal for tonight’s NBA draft lottery. Rachel Nichols and Mark Tatum announced Phx as the winner. Hopefully this isn’t a sign of what’s to come.
Today, Joel Embiid gave a passionate plea for Brett Brown to remain head coach. Tonight, @wojespn
reports Brown’s job is indeed safe. @ScottiePippen
& @RJeff34 give their takes here on what’s going on in Philly.
Rachel Nichols to RJ Barrett: "RJ tell me how it is to have all this talk around Zion Williamson and not yourself at all?"
Last night Kawhi Leonard did something that had never been done before in NBA history and in the process gave the Raptors something they’d been looking for, for nearly 25 years.
Really dont like how Rachel Nichols is slobbering all over Zion with both him and RJ with them, makes it so awkward for RJ
Rachel Nichols is cringeworthy right now with the #NBALottery right now
Rachel Nichols: Zion, everyone wants you, you’re truly amazing.
Zion: thank you
Rachel Nichols to RJ Barrett: so how do you feel about all of this you piece of shit?
I blame Rachel Nichols for this debacle.
Rachel Nichols: Zion all these teams wanting you must be crazy
Zion: I’ll be happy wherever I go
Rachel Nichols: R.J. hows it like to see all this first hand
Rachel Nichols: “RJ what does Zion eat for breakfast usually?”
I must say, Rachel Nichols is the most annoying analyst and personality I've ever seen. So annoying. Not funny at all either.
I understand the Zion hype and all but Rachel Nichols went overboard with the slurping of him tonight....literally mentioning his name at every moment, made it look so awkward
Rachel Nichols is real annoying right now...... 🤦🏽♂️ #NBADraftLottery
I think Rachel Nichols is trying to sleep with Zion. Am I rooting for her? Sure why not?
Rachel Nichols i wanna long dick yo pussy till its squirtin n fartin squirtin n fartin squirtin n fartin... got that dookie hole soakin wet soakin wet soakin wet.. and you throw it back and its grippin n huggin grippin n hugging and its squirtin n fartin squirtin n fartin
If you’re down on your luck just keep in mind this guy landed Rachel Nichols
I’m convinced Rachel Nichols wants to fuck Zion
Anyway espn can help sneak this Chicago guy in to watch the lottery?!!
Has Rachel Nichols always been on the Draft Lottery show? Cause I Hated it. Like this is a serious thing like the Future of Franchise’s & revenue is in the hands of Lottery Picks & she making it sound like a TV show lol Nobody else was laughing cause it was a serious thing 😂
The way Rachel Nichols kept calling out Zion at different parts of the lottery process was hilarious 🤣🤣... I felt uncomfortable for the kid myself
Rachel Nichols is simply the worst. Paul Pierce is a close second.
Rachel Nichols' nonstop Zion talk + ESPN's thirst of Zion made the lottery coverage just terrible.
I don’t know what’s more upsetting, the Knicks not getting the number 1 pick or having to sit through that and hear your jokes @Rachel__Nichols
Rachel Nichols talking about Zion like how dads used to talk about their kids at travel ball
said “here comes the only person with knowledge of the winner of the lottery,” referencing the rep from Ernst and Young. How did @espn
put the Pelicans graphic up before the envelope was opened if that was true?
They should just make half and half shirts. Then cheer for both.

One is a legitimate NBA Star. The other went to Dook. Easy choice. #TeamSteph
Pro sports commissioners are always loathed, but there's a likeability with this dude in a quirky way.
Only white people do this beother against brother. Black people don't roll that way. They say the same thing when the William sisters play tennis. Just play ball and forget the brother thing. On the court they are basketball players.
Anybody else hear Rachel Nichols say the “Gorillas” get the 1st pick in the draft? What the... #NBADraft
Pretty sure @Rachel__Nichols
has mentioned Zion 400 more times since the special ended. Fawning was cringeworthy
Rachel Nichols deadass would’ve sucked off Zion on the spot if she could. That’s was AWFULLY cringey
The fact that Rachel Nichols couldn’t keep not saying how he will be the top pick seemed kind of unprofessional, considering he was sitting right there and could clearly hear her commentary. Just so awkward.
