Sports Media World Reacts To Malika Andrews’ Performance

The Spun 21 July, 2021 - 09:01pm

What's trending in the sports world today.

On Tuesday night, the Milwaukee Bucks took down the Phoenix Suns by a final score of 105-98 en route to winning the NBA title.

Following the game, all eyes shifted to ESPN’s Malika Andrews – who was presenting the postgame activities. Andrews took over for Rachel Nichols after ESPN decided to bench her for the rest of the NBA Finals.

The decision came after controversial comments Nichols made about fellow ESPNer Maria Taylor became public. Malika became the youngest broadcaster in media history to present the Larry O’Brien trophy.

She put together a flawless performance and received praise from plenty of those in the media world. That included her younger sister, Kendra, who had a message for Malika.

“As a black woman, particularly one in sports journalism, having someone like @malika_andrews as a role model is special,” Kendra said. “The fact that she’s also my sister just makes me feel that much more lucky. She killed it tonight, as she always does.”

She wasn’t the only one celebrating Malika’s first chance at presenting the NBA title to the Milwaukee Bucks. Several members of her ESPN family, such as Mina Kimes and Adam Schefter also acknowledged Andrews making history.

Very impressive to watch a 26-year-old @malika_andrews interview the world-champion Milwaukee Bucks on national television, and handle it as smoothly and professionally as she has.

— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 21, 2021

Earlier today, Maria Taylor announced she’s leaving ESPN. That could open the door for Malika Andrews to take over NBA coverage for the Worldwide Leader moving forward.

Congratulations to Malika on a great performance!
