BONNEVILLE Sports KHTK-A/SACRAMENTO has fired afternoon host and SACRAMENTO KINGS television play-by-play voice GRANT NAPEAR after a tweet exchange with former KINGS player DEMARCUS COUSINS in which NAPEAR, who has feuded with COUSINS in the past, wrote "ALL LIVES MATTER..." I've been doing more listening than talking the past few days.
Napear said he was unaware of the political ramifications of his tweet.
Napear told the Bee: "I'm not as educated on BLM as I thought I was. They've seen it. They know who he is".
To quote an article written on Tuesday by BSM's Brandon Contes, "The "all lives matter" reaction to BLM generally represents a misunderstanding of and contempt for the movement".
"Grant Napear has resigned from the Sacramento Kings", the team said in a statement.
"I'm in pain. I'm 60 years old and I still have a lot learn".
