    It's silly because all of ESPN's cross-cultural programming is silly, but within that context, isn't he just voicing an opinion that she sucks? Which she does. So it's fine by me.

    This is a journalism topic?

    I believe it was Flores who was once fired from a TV station in Austin for dropping an F-bomb on the air.

    It's hardly unprofessional. It's a fairly amusing line. (And I say that as someone who wouldn't know Iggy Azalea if she were sitting in the room with me.)

    Honestly, if anything happens to Flores at all, people at ESPN should rise up and fight back. It would be inexcusable.

    I agree with PC. I can't imagine anyone outside of Nick and Iggy would be offended by that.

    Some people take themselves way too seriously.

    I don't believe Azalea is Young's wife.

    No, she's not. I-G-G-Y is Swaggy P's girlfriend. I think Flores' comment is pretty low on the list of things to be upset at ESPN about. But Young wasn't too thrilled with the joke.

    Felt like a totally unwarranted, unprovoked shot for the sake of blowing up the Twitterverse. ESPN anchors are often not as funny as they think they are, looking at you Neil Everett.

    That said, I don't really care. I don't even know what an Iggy Azalea is, but I'm sure it would look lovely in my garden.
  9. From behind? Yes. An Iggy Azalea would look great in your garden.

    By the way, as you read those Nick Young tweets, remember this: he spent three years as a student at USC.

    Here we have this slug of a guy who calls himself Swaggy Playing on one of the owrst teams in the NBA this season and a chick who is a one hit wonder worried about what a SportsCenter anchor said. I saw the 30/30 program on him years ago. This guy is bad news and is a negative for the NBA.
