Columnist Stephen A. Smith said that he is not going to bend under public pressure and does not regret the words spoken about the appointment of the head coach of the Brooklyn nets, Steve Nash. Recall that Smith called the situation with the appointment of Nash “white privilege”. According to him, a black person would not have received such a position without work experience, as happened to Steve.
“When I talk about white privilege, I just emphasize that this guy, who doesn’t have any coaching resume, got the first career coaching job on a team with a ready-made championship roster, he will lead one of the best players in history, Kevin Durant.
Just tell me a black man who would get a job like this without any experience. Not call. I’m not talking about Derek Fisher, who got a job at the then-pathetic new York ,I’m not talking about Doc Rivers and Orlando, or Jason Kidd and the Brooklyn nets. I’m talking about a title contender team. I’ve been covering NBA games for 25 years, and no black brother has ever gotten this opportunity. That’s what I’m talking about,” Smith said in the video, a snippet of which is posted on his Twitter page.

Miami Heat leader Jimmy Butler commented on the team’s third win in the series with the Milwaukee Bucks.
“Not surprised. I think everyone in the world might be surprised, but not us. If you wear a Miami Jersey, if you’re one of the coaches or just part of the organization, you know what you’ve been doing for a year, and the result is not surprising. We fight a lot, we never give up, and I think we always give ourselves a chance to win,” ESPN quoted Jimmy Butler as saying.
The third game of the NBA Eastern conference semifinal series between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat took place at the HP field house in Kissimmee (Orlando, USA).
