Chris Broussard was never the most popular NBA reporter in the country, and this past season did nothing to improve his reputation. Like the rest of the ESPN NBA playoff crew, Broussard was painful to watch before and after postseason games. Then there has been his breaking news and inside information on Twitter, which recently became the butt of everyone’s jokes after he cited his “sources” who said Deron Williams signed an extension with the Nets after Deron already announced it himself.
This week, Broussard is taking a much-needed vacation with his family in the Caribbean now that the NBA season has come to a close. For whatever reason, he felt the need to call out his “haters” before he left.
That’s never a good idea when players do it, and it sounds even dumber coming from a reporter. Obviously Broussard is frustrated with the amount of crap he’s been getting from everyone on Twitter and elsewhere, but he should have just taken his Caribbean vacation and slept on it. Now he can expect the “haters” to come at him even harder.
