HoopsHype Dan LeBatard rumors

August 11, 2014 Updates

ESPN, a giant corporate parent company with interests against their employees doing this if they want to keep any sort of journalistic integrity and relationships with LeBron James intact at the same time, warned him to suspend the plane and take down the billboards. That’s when, LeBatard said, he decided it had already gone too far to go back. I said I would not and could not because we were building this up for days on the radio to a crescendo and to simply stop talking about it and not do it with no mention would be dumb, inauthentic, confusing and not me. I was polite about it, but I was insubordinate. I refused to budge. We were flying the plane. So I was suspended, as I should have been. If I’d actually believed in any of this, I might have flown the plane anyway, even while on suspension, but this would be a pretty silly cause for which to lose your job. For The Win
