‘Out Of His Cotton-Picking Mind’

An NBA game announcer is in hot water after saying Russell Westbrook was playing so well Thursday night … he was “out of his cotton-picking mind.”
Did he just say “Westbrook is out of his cotton-picking mind”?….. pic.twitter.com/fvPZ5cTkjx

We get it … FOX Sports Oklahoma play-by-play guy Brian Davis (white dude) was trying to say Westbrook was playing on another level (he became the first player in NBA history to average a triple double 2 years in a row).
But, when you make a cotton reference about a black guy …it’s not usually well received.
That’s exactly what happened Wednesday night — people are losing their minds about the comment. Some people are even suggesting Davis should be fired.
There’s been a long debate about the origin of the expression — some people say it was used as a slur plantation owners used toward slaves.
We’re reaching out to the Thunder for comment.
