No doubt we have said some stupid things on air, but Richard Jefferson might be after our jobs with this comment about a huge “9-incher” leaving his fellow broadcasters speechless. While he was actually talking about a player’s wingspan vs. his height, he for sure was talking about his vertical SOMETHING.
Ryan Ruocco: Mo Bamba is 7’1” with a 7’10” wingspan. A 9-incher!
Richard Jefferson: A 9-incher…that’s rough.
Ruocco & Sarah Kustok: (long silence while laughing off-air)
Richard Jefferson: So, am I the only talking now? You are both turning red.
An all-time sequence!
