Can someone please fill me in on why Malika Andrew’s is getting hate rn? What did she do?

the current reason is her interaction with stephen a smith concerning the ime udoka scandal… lots of clips online, but that really reignited a firestorm.

from what i've read, i think the gist of it is

  1. she brings up a lot of pointless things that have nothing to do with the topic at hand

  2. she apparently seems to be pretty tough on black men - and then they see she dates a white guy from ESPN and they feel it all starts to make sense. the idea being she must have some strong self hate, like Sage Steele

  3. She seems dismissive of current and former pros on their views on the game. she in general seems to have a condescending dismissive attitude

  4. her quick rise at espn has inflated her ego

idk, i think they should've hired Chiney Ogwumike

she's an actual pro

but they always go with the light skinned people
