Maria Taylor aka Suzette Maria Taylor is the host at ESPN, analyst, and the SEC Network. Recently, Rachel Nichols got entangled in controversy within her network after she criticized and questioned the credentials of her Black co-worker Maria Taylor, stating Taylor, had gotten that job because she is Black and now that has led to a change in assignment for her at the 2021 finals. After the uncertain remarks regarding a Black colleague, the sports media has decided to replace Nichols with Malika Andrews to host Phoenix Suns vs. Milwaukee Bucks series, ESPN. While Nichols will continue hosting her daily NBA show, “The Jump.” ESPN said in a statement “We believe this is the best decision for all concerned to keep the focus on the NBA Finals”. Nichols said in July 2020 “I wish Maria Taylor all the success in the world, she covers football, she covers basketball”. When Nichols was chosen by ESPN to host NBA coverage last year. In an accidentally recorded call with Rich Paul and Adam Mendelsohn, Nichols said, “If you need to give her more things to do because you are feeling pressure about your crappy longtime record on diversity which, by the way, I know personally from the female side of it like, go for it. Just find it somewhere else. You are not going to find it from me or taking my thing away.” Later in the New York Times, Nichols interpreted that she was frustrated and was “unloading to a friend about ESPN’s process, not about Maria.” Added “My intentions in that conversation, and the opinion of those in charge at ESPN, are not the sum of what matters here — if Maria felt the conversation was upsetting, then it was, and I was the cause of that for her.”
