Grant Napear has been proudly calling the action for the Sacramento Kings for more than thirty years, but his career came to a crashing halt in June when he uttered those famously racist words, “All lives matter.” While it’s true that the racism of such a phrase was unknown until, oh, about five minutes ago, the Kings nonetheless felt it was time to retire Napear, who shockingly admitted that he didn’t actually know that the phrase was racist. In other words, he was fired for not keeping up to date with the ever-shifting, ever-more-ridiculous claims of the Woke Left.
Worry not, though, because the Kings have announced his replacement: A man who has claimed publicly that President Donald Trump is a “white supremacist terrorist.”
Earlier this month, the Kings welcomed ESPN and ABC Sports broadcaster Mark Jones to its family.
“We are delighted to welcome Mark to the Kings family and watch him partner with Doug to form a new, dynamic broadcast team for the franchise and its proud fans,” said Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé.
The Kings probably don’t have to worry about Jones saying something controversial like “all lives matter,” because he’s proven himself to be a race-baiter of the highest order and an unabashed critic of law enforcement.
“Saturday at my football game I’ll tell the police officer on duty to ‘protect’ me he can just take the day off,” tweeted Jones in September. “I’d rather not have the officer shoot me because he feared for his life because of my black skin or other dumb ish. I’m not signing my own death certificate.”
A day earlier, he wrote this: “Police never saved me. Never helped me. Never protected me. Never taken a bullet for me. (They’ve pulled guns on me) Never kept me safe in a protest. Never stopped the racist from taking my Black Lives Matter flag off my house. I could do without em. fr. #BreonnaTaylor. #Defund12”
Around this time, Jones’s radical postings drew the attention of Outkick writer Clay Travis, who noticed that Jones had an odd habit: “Every time @MarkJonesESPN has referred to America in the past couple of months, he has spelled ‘America’ with three k’s, as in the KKK. This dude is an imbecile, alright?”
Yeah, but at least he’s never made the egregious mistake of saying that “all lives matter.” That makes him good enough to call games for the Sacramento Kings.
