    A black NBA player appeared to make a racial remark to a white NBA
    player after a heated confrontation during a game on Friday night while
    the players were wearing jerseys that had special social justice
    phrases printed on the back.

    ďLA Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell and Dallas Mavericks Slovenian
    star Luka Doncic got into a scuffle last night that ended with Harrell
    calling Doncic a Ďb***h a*s white boy,'Ē Outkick columnist Gary
    Sheffield Jr. wrote. ďThe solution here is simple, even if many wonít
    like it: the NBA has to suspend Montrezl Harrell and send a message
    that race-based derogatory comments like his on the basketball court
    wonít be tolerated. The NBA has already set this precedent with gay
    slurs on the court, why not with racial-based insults as well?Ē

    ďMontrezl Harrellís comments have already spawned a million ĎIf the
    races were reversedí conversations on social media and there is no
    doubt that if Luka had referred to Montrezl Harrell as a Ďb**** a**
    black boy,í that the social media condemnation would have rained down
    from the heavens on Luka,Ē Sheffield added. ďIn fact, Luka would
    probably be suspended for the remainder of the season. He would be
    crushed, a social pariah in all of sports.Ē


    Former NBA player and current ESPN host Jay Williams slammed Harrell
    for the alleged comment, noting that if Doncic said something like
    that, it would be a big deal.

    In a video posted to Twitter, Williams said:

    I am no lip reader, but damn, Trez, damn, Montrez. I can only
    imagine if Luka Doncic had something like that to you, and it
    got caught on tape. I can only imagine during Black Lives
    Matter how much of a big deal that would have been, considering
    todayís climate and state. It would have been a massive story.
    Luka would have lost all credibility in this space; everybody
    would have been commenting on it. People would have asked
    LeBron about it, people would have asked [another player] about
    it. Everybody would have had some kind of statement about it,
    but itís not that big of a story because Trez said it to a
    Caucasian person.

    It should be a big story because itís not acceptable, man. And
    look, Iím a hooper, I talk trash, Iíve cursed people out. We
    can get into the nuances of whether thatís right or wrong too,
    but what you said, when youíre involving race in itóand Iíve
    heard people say this back in the day during basketball
    scenarios and playing hoops in inner cities, I still didnít
    find it acceptable then. I donít find it acceptable now.
    Especially when cameras are on you 24/7. Get lost in your
    battle, man, but donít get lost and say things like that. You
    donít need to say things like that, Trez. Make your performance
    speak for itself; you can talk trash in different ways. You
    donít need to say stuff like that. Now, Iím no lip reader, but
    I know what I saw come out of your mouth, man. We donít need
    that in todayís game, especially with everything that weíre
    fighting for as it relates to equality. Even if you do get
    lost in your emotion, not acceptable. Not acceptable.
