Brian Windhorst Accidentally Updated His iPhone During The Draft, And I - For One - Feel Bad For Him
Look, there's plenty of reasons to poke fun at Brian Windhorst. For starters, the entirety of his successful career has become hinged on the tongue that he has firmly planted in LeBron James' tight little buttocks. You want to laugh at him for occasionally falling asleep on the air then have at it, but to criticize him for accidentally updating his phone during his version of the Super Bowl is disingenuous at best and undeniably hypocritical at worst.
Having fallen victim to an itchy texting finger when the pop-up that potentially serves as a temporary prison sentence to your ability to communicate, I refuse to do anything other than feel bad for the NBA insider who unintentionally locked himself outside during the NBA Draft. That mistake is one that is so easy to make that I swear it was the last joke that Steve Jobs left this world. I would honestly be surprised if he wasn't eternally laughing at every person anxiously staring at their screen after they frivolously smashed the wrong button to continue whatever meaningless, self absorbed narcissism they were partaking in at the time. Considering it's a "smart" phone that bar sure recalibrates rather slowly once it's time for a update, so I have no choice but to think someone is fucking with us from beyond the grave.
In all honesty though, this kind of slip-up is what separates the Brian Windhorst's of the world from the Adrian Wojnarowski's of the world. No way any true news-breaker is walking around without an 'Inspector Gadget' jacket full of WiFi-compatable devices when the game is on the line and time is of the essence. If anything, the fact that LeBron's personal consultant was one inflated thumb away from being off the grid is proof positive that being so closely linked with 'The King' allows him the professional wiggle room that his desk chair doesn't.
