In an effort to compliment Brooklyn Nets forward Andrei Kirilenko for his reckless, honest style of play, YES Network color commentator Donny Marshall threw a pointed jab at Miami Heat forward and four-time MVP LeBron James, implying James was an actor who embellished contact.
"So many times you see guys in this league who need a stretcher -- LeBron James -- when they get hit, they're like Premier League soccer players, you know?" Marshall said, eliciting laughter from play-by-play commentator Ian Eagle.
"Can we rewind?" Eagle joked to Marshall after. Marshall did not elaborate.
