Late night radio may not be appointment radio, but believe it or not news does break after 12 a.m. And that’s exactly what happened on the Freddie and Fitz show ESPN Saturday morning.
Mike Wise has been doing this whole basketball reporting thing for a long time. He was an award-winning columnist for the Washington Post, covered the New York Knicks during the 90s for the New York Times, and is currently a senior writer for The Undefeated over at ESPN.
Incoming rookie Jordan Bell, who was drafted by the Bulls before being bought by Golden State, is already feeling comfortable with his new team. Gazettes Sports was with Bell during his NBA Draft party Thursday night, and filmed several moments of his celebration. But something they may have missed was Bell yelling, F– Bron Bron at a colleague.
The phrase is obviously a reference to LeBron James, but you may not know it’s connected to a song. Last year, rapper Mac Bari made a viral hit with the track, appropriately titled F– Bron Bron, which is just basically a two and a half minute dis track toward the Cleveland All-Star.
Bell smiled when he said the phrase, and it appeared to be more of an inside joke between friends sort of thing. But he clearly looks ready to join the Warriors in their quest to conquer the NBA, which will likely end in a showdown against James and the Cavs.
