Kyrie Irving’s recent conduct continues to strike a chord with sports radio personalities. WFAN morning host Gregg Giannotti ranted about the NBA’s lack of discipline in regards to Irving, the reaction — or lack thereof — from the general public, and the conduct of franchises when it comes to non-playing personnel and their personal opinions.

“It’s obvious what you do. You do the right thing,” Giannotti said. “Screw the pressure from the players. You actually step up and have some intestinal fortitude to do the right thing. And he (Adam Silver) doesn’t. He just runs and hides. Here’s the problem: They get away with it! And nobody holds them accountable. It’s the same stuff with the China situation. The same thing! And that went away. You hold your feet to the fire and then they’re like ‘Oh, where’s Adam Silver with the China thing?’ ‘Where’s Lebron James with the China thing?’

“And then they say this terrible stuff, we slam them on the radio, there’s columns written about it, but then it goes away! And they get away with it! And the same thing is happening here,” he continued. “You’ve got a guy who promotes this grossly anti-Semitic film, who, by the way, did say he watched, and implied in that press conference that he read the book. I know we had a moron caller yesterday who was like ‘All he was trying to say was where do the Jews come from or where the Blacks come from.’ That’s not what this movie is about, I’m sorry.

“There is a quote in there — a fake Hitler quote in there,” said Giannotti. “There is also another fake quote in there talking about how the Holocaust didn’t happen so the Jews can control the world, that’s why they came up with the lie. I’m not making that up! That’s in there. There is a fake quote in that movie that says the Jewish people lied about the Holocaust to make people feel bad for them, so they can run the world,” the host said with an increasing volume. “That’s in that movie that Kyrie posted! But Kyrie’s out there dishing assists and shooting a basketball and we’re letting him go out there and play?!

“Nobody’s doing anything about it! What world are we living in?! Honestly! There was the Sacramento Kings play-by-play guy that tweeted out ‘All Lives Matter’ and was fired in 10 seconds! 10 seconds his ass was on the street! Kyrie Irving is posting about a video that says the Holocaust didn’t happen and he’s dodging the media, and playing in NBA games! And getting paid a gazillion dollars! Where are the rational people?! Where did you go?! Where are the people with guts?! Where are you?! Why are we afraid of this a-hole?! Why are we afraid of him?!”

“Ask Sean Marks,” Boomer Esiason responded.

“Why is he afraid?! Because he’s a gutless wuss, too! Because all he cares about is winning,” Giannotti said. “He pushed all his chips into the middle of the table, it’s a complete disaster for him, and he’s trying to save face. So he’s gonna take the sexual harassment coach away from the Celtics and then stand by this anti-Semite jerkoff! That’s what he’s gonna do. That’s his plan. Good job, Sean! Good job.”

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
