ESPN reporter Doris Burke somehow stole the show during the New Orleans Pelicans-Memphis Grizzlies game on Monday, a contest that featured NBA rising stars Ja Morant and Zion Williamson.

How did Burke do it? She had this epic line during the ESPN telecast:

Burke is universally loved by everyone in the NBA community. This latest comment will only increase her popularity around the association.

Earlier in the year, Burke contracted COVID-19 shortly after the season was suspended. She received plenty of love from the NBA world and even talked about it with ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski:

“Man, I am so tired right now, and my head is pounding,” the veteran NBA reporter said back in March. “And looking back, those were my symptoms. And we’ve heard so much about shortness of breath, fever, tightness in your chest, chills, body aches, etc. … Really, my primary symptom throughout this was this extraordinary fatigue.

“I’m so incredibly thankful to be feeling well.”

Doris Burke has covered basketball for ESPN since 1991. She was named a full-time NBA game analyst before the start of the 2017-18 season, becoming the first woman to hold that role.

In 2018, Burke received the Curt Gowdy Media Award from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
