Basketball Announcer Asks His Partner If He’s "Been Ridden" Before, Hilarity Ensues

Bill Raftery’s got onions.

Notre Dame’s Jerion Grant was the “hot player” throughout the second half after a cold first half, and as Raftery notes, teams have to ride the hot player. That’s all pretty normal banter. Then…

That was Bill Raftery asking Jay Bilas — on national, live television — if he’s “ever been ridden.” And Raftery definitely knew exactly what he was doing there.

Jay Bilas really owns Bill Raftery here with some quick thinking. Further proof that Bilas, noted Young Jeezy acolyte, is hella trill.

There isn’t video evidence, but I imagine Bill Raftery was pushing his chin out and silently mouthing “giggity giggity.”

Play-by-play man Sean McDonough pretends we’re watching a replay of the 1974 NBA Finals on ESPN Classic and moves our broadcast forward due to time constraints. Good save, Sean!
