Rachel Nichols is having a rough NBA Finals.
Just a few weeks ago Nichols was replaced on ABC’s NBA Finals broadcast team by Malika Andrews after she was heard calling Maria Taylor a diversity hire in a leaked video.
Now Nichols is getting criticized by NBA fans for her awkward questions during the NBA Final press conference.
After the Suns were eliminated from the playoffs in game 6 of the NBA finals, Nichols asked Paul “what it does it feel like?.” Paul chuckled and answered, “it feels like we just lost.”

Fans weren’t feeling Nichols’ question to CP3.
They took away Rachel Nichols sideline gig and she just mailing it in. Most relatable shit I seen all day 😂 https://t.co/t1iX7ValtG

Literally what is the point of asking that.
Surprised Chris Paul didn't just walk out. Wouldn't blame him tbh https://t.co/8xySSwHMiA
