ESPN reporter Doris Burke has had a rough week. First a production assistant did her wrong by inadvertently running a clip that had Burke flubbing her lines and cursing, and last night after the Mavericks closed out the Thunder to advance to the NBA Finals, Burke was left high and dry when she looked to interview Dirk Nowitski and Jason Kidd. Burke did get words from Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and head coach Rick Carlisle, but she may have dawdled too long on the suits (and yes, Cuban is a suit) and missed her chance to get face time with the people most responsible for the Mavs’ win: The players.
Here’s the clip of Burke calling around for Dallas players who’ve already left the area.
