An awkward scene played out on live TV between ESPN’s Lisa Salters and Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke after game 5 of the NBA Finals.
On Monday night, the Denver Nuggets won the NBA championship after winning another tight game against the Miami Heat in Denver.
After the game, ESPN’s sideline reporter Lisa Salters interviewed Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke, and that’s when things got a bit weird.
During the interview, Kroenke turned away from the mic and instead began awkwardly talking into Salters’ ear.

Fans immediately roasted Kroenke for not knowing how a mic works by talking into Salters’ ear instead of the microphone in front of him.
