Awful AnnouncingESPN basketball reporter and analyst Doris Burke was a guest on the Mike & Mike show Wednesday morning, presumably to talk about the NBA and the women’s college basketball clash between No. 1 UConn and No. 2 Notre Dame. But Greenberg and Golic just wouldn’t be doing their jobs properly if they didn’t ask about what listeners really want to know.

So with Burke on the phone, Greenberg got right to the big topic: What is going on with her and Drake?

After admitting that she gets the exact same question from her children, Burke attempted to explain what has to be the most surreal circumstance of her career. How many basketball reporters have international rap stars declaring a crush on them, all of which became public during last season’s Eastern Conference Finals between Drake’s beloved Toronto Raptors and the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Burke explained that other than Drake making heart signs at her during last season’s Eastern Finals and her phone getting flooded with messages after the rapper made his feelings known on TV, she knows as much as the rest of us. So apparently, Burke has not taken Drake up on his invitation to dinner at his house. Maybe she’s insisting on bringing her disbelieving son and daughter along, just to confirm that it really happened.

That is, unless the visit and meal already took place. Burke did tell Greenberg and Golic that she wouldn’t be gossiping about it afterwards.


If you’re going to move on from Rihanna, Doris Burke is not a bad way to go. She’s way classier and more talented and can get Drake tickets to any game he wants.

It seemed like Drake was just wearing that shirt and saying he loves her ironically, like I do with Mike Francesa, because she is a somewhat obscure crush, but then Burke said he was making heart signs to her in public and I would not do that to Mike Francesa. So Drake might actually have a crush on Doris Burke.

Based on Burke’s tweet it looks like it’s Drake’s move. Unless he slid into her DM’s and the two have actually been dating since November. My money is on that.

Drake looked OK in that shirt but I think Geno Auriemma wore it better.

AROUND THE WEB:

— Aroldis Chapman signed a five-year, $86 million contract with the Yankees on Wednesday, the largest contract ever for a closer.

Chapman told ESPN his decision came down to the Yankees or the Marlins.

“I love the [Yankees organization],” he said. “They welcomed me with open arms and that’s why I decided to go back. I was hoping I had a chance to go back and it happened. Every player dreams of being a Yankee, and if they don’t it’s because they never got the chance.”

The signing was first reported by Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.

The Yankees acquired Chapman from the Reds last offseason, but Chapman missed the first 29 games of the season sue to a domestic violence suspension. He was dealt to the Cubs in July and became a free agent after winning the World Series with Chicago.
