Thunder statement on play-by-play voice Brian Davis' in-game comments

Legendary television and radio host Larry King weighed in on the controversy surrounding National Basketball Association commentator Brian Davis, and his statement made about Russell Westbrook being out of his "cotton-pickin' mind".

Davis will return for the Thunder's Game 2 matchup against the Jazz next Wednesday.

"But again, we feel strongly that it's inappropriate and offensive".

Davis accepted the suspension and apologized for his "lapse in judgement".

The Thunder believe team play-by-play announcer Brian Davis' racially insensitive remarks during Wednesday's game against Memphis were "offensive and inappropriate", Thunder Vice President of Broadcasting Dan Mahoney told The Transcript. "While unintentional, I understand and acknowledge the gravity of the situation". "I offer my honest apology". "This is an appropriate effect for my actions", Davis concluded.
