Mic Check: Laimbeer Refuses To Be Wired Up For Game Four

Laimbeer Upset About ESPN Mic

WNBA Shock coach Bill Laimbeer is refusing to wear a live microphone during tonight’s telecast of Game Four of the WNBA Finals on ESPN, saying that ESPN “had used snippets of what he had said on the bench to create controversy or slam people,” according to Chris Silva of the DETROIT FREE PRESS. Laimbeer also will not let ESPN “have cameras in the locker for pregame routines and speeches.” Laimbeer: “They’re using their own tool to create their own story. That shouldn’t happen.” During practice this week, Shock F Kara Braxton “told some ESPN people seated courtside that her coach wanted them to leave.” Laimbeer: “We’re telling ESPN today to basically stick it” (DETROIT FREE PRESS 9/6).
