Wizards Announcer Glenn Consor Under Fire Over ‘Pulled Trigger’ Comment About Kevin Porter Jr.’s Dad After Game-Winning Shot

Wizards announcer Glenn Consor has found himself under fire over his commentary during Wednesday night’s Rockets-Wizards game.

At the end of the game, Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. hit a buzzer-beater three-pointer to seal the Rockets win. On the Wizards broadcast, Consor noted that “like his dad,” Porter Jr. “pulled that trigger at the right time.”

Fans believed that Consor was referencing the fact that Porter Jr.’s father was arrested for manslaughter in the shooting of a 14-year-old girl,

It’s likely that Consor mistakenly believed that former NBA player Kevin Porter is Kevin Porter Jr.’s father and just used an unfortunate choice of words to describe the game-winning shot.

Update: Consor released a statement clarifying his in-game comments.
