Jay Bilas Ripped Jim Boeheim & Commentators Racial ‘Undertone’ Comments About Duke’s Jalen Johnson (VIDEO)
Jim Boeheim is in a lot of hot water over his comments about Jalen Johnson opting out of the 2021 season with the Duke Blue Devils.
What Boeheim said on his radio show about Jalen Johnson leaving Duke:
“That guy was hurting them so they actually are much better now without him. He was just doing some things and keeping other people from playing that are good. They’ve had two monster wins since he’s opted out and they’re playing good basketball. They’ve got very good talent. You knew they were going to play out of this thing and now they’re playing well. Every game we play is a very difficult game, a great challenge and we look forward to it.”
During the latest episode of Bald Men on Campus — Jay Bilas decided to spend some time addressing those comments and the racial undertones that are coming from others as well.
“Jalen Johnson does not have a “camp,” “people in his ear,” or a “posse.” He has a family. He has a mother and father helping him, with his best interests in mind, making decisions. We can differ with the decision, but the undertones of the criticism of Johnson are concerning.”
