It seems that there is currently nothing in the world more egregious than being disrespected. I have two random stories today on being dissed…er..yo. First comes Larry Bird who, in an interview with Jim “Bait” Gray, admitted that he hated getting defended by white guys. He felt it was disrespectful to him because the white guy had no chance. (The suggestion of “disrespect” was contributed by Magic Johnson, who still thought he was doing a talk show.) Apparently, even Basketball Jesus felt white guys couldn’t play defense.
Remember when Iverson caught flak for whispering in Stockton’s ear, “no f’ing white boy can guard me!” Malone went nuts. I wonder what the mailman will have to say about Larry Legend. I wonder if anyone will have anything to say.
