ESPN reporter Rachel Nichols has been far away from her role as a sideline reporter during the NBA finals. The move by the sports network comes after the NY Times published a sound recording of Nichols making disparaging comments about her colleague Maria Taylor. In the recording from last year, Nichols is often heard complaining that Taylor was chosen to hide the NBA Finals, saying it had been partially due to ESPN’s “crappy longtime record on diversity.” Another reporter has been chosen to hide the 2021 NBA Finals, which started Tuesday.
