KEVIN DURANT HAS SIGNED WITH THE WARRIORS...ESPN reported it first and Durant confirmed it with a post on Players' Tribune.
I immediately went to KNBR, the Warriors flagship radio station in the Bay Area and, get this, Knibber is running a taped interview --TAPED.
Now, you would think that someone, some thing, a board op? An intern. Someone! Would Stick their head in and announce on the mic that "Freaking Kevin Durant has SIGNED with the Golden State Warriors!" But true to form, not a word.
Yes, It's Independence Day. A National Holiday and all of Cumulus' staff, (with the exception of the little people are off) --including the human torsos at KNBR --that's no excuse. A management figure could have called someone--could have immediately switched to CBS Radio Network Programming which broadcast the news but instead the dinklewaits at the Sports Bleeder looked foolish.
--Finally, at 9: 20 PST: almost more than an hour after the original announcement, an announcement on Knibber...Swell.
