WATCH: CJ McCollum jokes about Jamal Murray after IG scandal
MANILA, Philippines – What was supposed to be a wholesome live session turned NSFW as Portland Trail Blazers' CJ McCollum joked about Denver Nuggets' Jamal Murray following his alleged sex scandal.
Speaking to Blazers teammate Damian Lillard live on the official NBA account on Instagram, McCollum reacted to a comment posted by a fan.
"They said my pubes look like Jamal Murray's," McCollum said referring to his beard as he and Lillard both cracked up.
Lillard, unable to control his laughter, told McCollum to stop.
"Bro, you can't be addressing these comments," Lillard said.
Murray addressed the leaked sex tape posted on his Instagram account, saying he was hacked.
"First and foremost, I would like to apologize to my fans. My account has been hacked," Murray wrote on Twitter.
First and foremost I would like to apologize to my fans. My account has been hacked, currently working on the issue. Thanks
