Chauncey Billups shredded for his awful, racist NBA player comparisons

Chauncey Billups

Chauncey Billups’ NBA player comparisons was one of the worst parts of the draft on Thursday night.

Billups was serving as an analyst for ESPN, and he was noticeably off on his comparisons. His comparison of an athletic Jaren Jackson Jr. to a defensive grinder in Joakim Noah was terrible. His comparison of Michael Porter Jr. to Kevin Durant seemed lofty.

But the worst part was his insistence on sticking with a racial component for his picks. For instance, he compared nearly every white player with another white player, regardless of whether their games had any similarities.

Grayson Allen, a good scorer and dunker from Duke, was compared to Bob Sura, a pass-first point guard. He compared Moe Wagner to Mehmet Okur. Donte DiVincenzo was compared to Tyler Johnson. He compared Kevin Huerter to Mike Miller.

What do all those comparisons have in common? Every white guy was compared with another white guy.

Folks on Twitter quickly figured out Chauncey’s tendency and criticized him for that and more.

Let’s also not forget Billups’ other best move of the night. One of his comparisons was so offensive that it sparked a beef out of nowhere.
