Michele Roberts was interviewed by The Undefeated and told a story of how she received an insulting job inquiry from a prominent lawyer.
"This gentleman, I use that word, called me and he was clearly inquiring about a position," said Roberts. "I suppose with a straight face said to me 'if you want to be taken seriously in the New York sports market you're going to need to hire somebody like me. I'm white, I'm male and I'm a Jew, and I will give you credibility, and I will guide you through this whole process.'
"I think I'm pleased he was not in my office because I swear for god I'm sure would have I slapped the piss out of him."
Roberts also talked about how there needs to be more women in sports, as well as people of color in the NBA's management positions.
"There clearly is a dearth in the number of coaches of color, GMs of color, and frankly owners of color. We can't pretend there's not work to be done. Again, I concede the numbers have gotten better. I don't know why they can't get even better."
