    Malika Andrews: Career, ESPN  

    Andrews' college played an essential role in shaping her career. Though she always knew that she did not want to work the traditional nine to five, but she did not think she wanted to be a sports reporter. Also, she did not have any experience in Journalism. 

    Nonetheless, in her sophomore year at the University of Portland, she joined the college paper The Beacon. While there, she wrote many articles related to sports, which won numerous awards and led to many internships. Overall, while in college, she learned the fundamentals of journalism and writing, which were very beneficial in her professional life.

According to her Linkedin profile, soon after graduating in 2017,  she gained James Reston Reporting Fellowship at the New York Times. A year later, she landed the job of a reporter at the Chicago Tribune

    After one year she left Chicago Tribune to join ESPN. She covered the NBA nationally, and her work appeared across ESPN platforms, including Sportscenter and ESPN Radio.

    One of the highlights of Andrews's career is Milwaukee Bucks player Giannis Antetokounmpo walking out of his postgame press conference after a question from the ESPN reporter. 


    The reason for Giannis' behavior is not known; however, many news outlets claim that the Bucks player was not happy about one of the articles written by Andrews. 

    In the article, Andrews argues that there is a possibility that Antetokounmpo may want to leave Milwaukee if the team does not make enough improvements to reach the NBA Finals next season. In the hindsight, it looks like Giannis' reaction was kind of warranted as Giannis is still with Bucks.
