'It's Obnoxious': Doug Gottlieb on Diar DeRozan's Free Throw Screams

Doug Gottlieb: “Many of you know that was DeMar DeRozan’s daughter making that screeching noise. Afterwards, people asked DeMar if she’s going to go to Miami now that they need one more win— ‘No, she’s gotta go to school.’… and she is simply an adorable little girl. Any time you’re cheering for your dad and trying to help your dad’s team win, how could anybody say anything bad about her?.... Well, I can… Scott Barnes came out after the game and was like ‘obviously, it affected us, we were 18 of 36 from the free throw line.’ Just cause it works doesn’t make it right. If that was anyone else’s child, how would we react? If it was an adult how would we react to it? I’m kind of torn on this thing. On some level you’re like ‘she goes to see her dad play what could be the only playoff game of the year, she’s there to support him, and she’s there cheering for him, all she wants to do is help her dad win, so she starts screeching and screaming like a dying cat at every free throw the Toronto Raptors, his former team, take.’ It might have worked, but have you ever been to a game where someone is super annoying and yelling, screaming, and screeching? IT’S THE WORST. It’s ‘cute kid privilege’. She’s just cheering for her dad, but man, that’s a lot. There is not a human being alive that won’t affirm what I’m going to say about DeMar DeRozan’s daughter… Unless that’s YOUR daughter cheering for YOUR team that is the most annoying and obnoxious thing you can allow a child to do at a basketball game. To allow them to screech and scream while it’s silent.” (Full Segment Above)

Watch Doug Gottlieb of Fox Sports Radio discuss DeMar DeRozan’s daughter, Diar, making headlines for her behavior during the #9 vs #10 play-in game between the Chicago Bulls and the Toronto Raptors, as Diar’s ear-piercing screams and screeches during Raptors free throws were the most talked about part of the Bulls victory that saw Toronto erode at the charity stripe.

Check out the segment above as Gottlieb calls the screams the ‘most annoying and obnoxious thing you can allow a child to do at a basketball game’, adding that Diar got away with ‘cute kid privilege’, by not getting admonished by stadium security
