Some of the media including ESPN Radio Dallas host Kevin Kiley called Kenyon Martin a thug for his actions on Sunday. Kenyon Martin grew up and went to high school in Dallas and his sister Tamara Martin Harris still lives there. His sister heard Kevin Kiley’s comments and emailed Michael Irvin about how offended she was. They then put Tamara Martin Harris on the air to defend her brother. On why she called the show: “I just want to go on the record and let you guys know that you’re entitled to your opinions, and there’s nothing wrong with that because I have a lot of opinions about a lot of things as well, but the one thing that I want to make clear, and very clear, is that my brother is not a thug. He’s a human being that’s doing his job. And it’s really funny to me that are labeling him as a thug but if he was playing soft then he’s not worth the money that they’re paying him, just like we do with Dampier because he doesn’t go in hard and he’s not physical that he’s not worth the money that we’re paying him.” — Sports Radio Interviews / ESPN Radio (Dallas)
