Doris Burke, a well-known sports commentator and NBA analyst, appears to have dropped a hint about her relationship status during a broadcast, causing quite a stir on social media.
The 54-year-old analyst was speaking on ESPN during the game between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Memphis Grizzlies. She was debating whether or not a foul should have been called on a Lonzo Ball drive to the basket with her broadcast partner Mark Jones.
“I like being right,” Burke joked. “Ask my ex-husband,” she says, surprising her fans. As their hearts flutter, fans on the Internet are fawning over her, with jokes floating around her marital status. A fan wrote, “All males hearing Doris Burke is single and running to her DMs.”
“Friendly reminder that Doris Burke is a queen and is beyond out of your league,” another fan said. “Doris Burke drops a ‘I’m always right, just ask my ex husband’ statement on National TV, we don’t deserve her,” one admirer wrote on Twitter, while another added, “My husband now that Doris Burke is single.” “Doris Burke single?!?!?” asked a fan.
Many followers mocked Burke’s “ex-husband” in a series of tweets about how he might have been “clowned” by Burke. “Doris Burke is CLOWNING her ex-husband on national television.”
Others speculated that Burke’s ex-husband was taken aback by her comments on national television. “Doris Burke’s ex-husband is watching tonight’s game,” one fan tweeted, while another said, “Doris Burke’s spouse is waiting for her to come home.” “I love this not just because it’s amusing because Doris is the best, but it’s low-key a savage dunk on him because she’s Doris Burke and he’s… well, not married to her anymore,” Peter Bukowski of the ‘Locked on Packers’ podcast wrote. Which is a bummer for him.”
