Kendall Marshall’s Father Claims Racism Over Playing Time?

The Twitter account of guard Kendall Marshall’s father, Dennis, had a post (“How are you a ‘shooter’ and shooting 27% from three?” Marshall wrote. “Can’t guard but play a lot. What do you think the reason is?”) saying that there is racism in the NBA and appeared to target white Sixers guards T.J. McConnell and Nik Stauskas as getting special treatment. Kendall Marshall has seen his time dwindle since the arrival of Ish Smith, who has been mainly backed up by McConnell. Philadelphia Inquirer

Update: Dennis Marshall ended up deleting his Twitter account with Kendall doing the same soon after

Dennis Marshall has since reached out to the Philadelphia 76ers with the offer of an apology: “I apologize to all associated with the Sixers,” he wrote. “I am ashamed and embarrassed by my actions. I have sent a letter of apology to the Sixers.”
