As we mentioned earlier, the Dominican Republic National Team lost to Nigeria last night, ending their quest for the squad’s first Olympic berth. While most sports writers have applauded Cal’s work with the DR National Team thus far, one ESPN writer seized the opportunity to get in another jab on Twitter:
Congrats to Nigeria on making the Olympics. DR would have just had to vacate the win anyway.

Hollinger has been an NBA Insider for ESPN.com since 2005, and has authored a book on the league entitled “Pro Basketball Forecast.” He also developed the PER, or player efficiency rating, which is a a rating of a player’s per-minute productivity. Yet, despite his lofty resume, he couldn’t help but grovel in the gutter by taking a cheap shot at Cal, who has more than proved his worth as an elite coach over the past few years. Even better? Hollinger’s “joke” doesn’t even make sense. It’s just lazy rumor mongering that sadly, we may have come to expect from those associated with the Worldwide Leader.
Ladies and gentlemen, your hater of the day: John Hollinger.
