After making an unfortunate ‘trigger’ reference during Wednesday night’s Wizards-Rockets game, a Washington announcer has apologized for ‘mistakenly’ confusing the father of Houston guard Kevin Porter Jr., who was shot to death in 2004, with a former Bullets player of the same name.

On Thursday, Wizards broadcaster Glenn Consor issued a statement on Twitter apologizing for the remark, which came after Porter Jr.’s game-winning shot against the Wizards and has since drawn criticism from none other than LeBron James.

‘You’ve got to give credit,’ Consor said after Porter Jr. sealed a 114-11 win with a buzzer-beating game-winning three-pointer. ‘Kevin Porter Jr., like his dad, pulled that trigger right at the right time.’
