Charles Barclay is an analyst who has barely put anything behind him. He didn’t say a word when it came to discussing The Brooklyn Nets hire Steve Nash.
To be clear: Barclays’ issue is not with the decision to mesh; It approves the rent. While pointing out worthy black candidates, Sir Charles, the “disappointed”, was another talking head who used the Nation’s tide to highlight white privilege. (Including interim Jack Vaughan, again deprived as an assistant) Were passed over.
A ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith’s point of view came up, Who was clear that his issue was not with the Nash player or the incoming coach. “Probably one of the best people you can meet in your life, but one who has no experience,” Smith said. “
“I was very disappointed in some of the people on television today,” Barclay said on TNT’s “Inside NBA” on Thursday. Very disappointed. “They’re like, ‘Well, that doesn’t happen with black guys.’ And I am, ‘It happened to Doc Rivers. It happened to Jason Kidd. It happened to Derek Fisher. ”
The point, as Smith and others see, is that the second “rule exception” is that the Nation needs years of coaching experience before landing on the tug. Indeed, the former point guard was never a coach, but he served as a player development consultant for the Golden State Warriors, Where he formed a relationship with Nets star Kevin DuranT, in the last five years.
However, Barclays was not here for any talk of “white privilege.”
“When you have a responsibility, especially when you have to talk about something as serious as a race, you can’t go crazy,” Barclay said. “You will be honest and just.
“Steve Nash is a great player and a good guy. But, I was very disappointed in some of these people. I was, ‘Dude, black people have done this before.’ Now, do we need more black coaches in the NBA? Yes. Do we need more black coaches in college league football? Yes. Want more black coaches in pro-football. Yes. ”
