The NBA TV analyst used a racially insensitive term as he narrated highlights of the New Jersey Nets, and offered the requisite apology afterwards: “In his NBA.com video recap of last Friday’s Magic-Nets game, NBA TV analyst Rick Kamla made the unfortunate mistake of referring to New Jersey forward Yi Jianlian as a ‘Chinaman.’ Turner Sports spokesman Jeff Pomeroy said Kamla was not aware of the connotations of the word, and meant nothing malicious or offensive by it.”
