The Wizards’ young guard Jordan Crawford exploded into the national scene with what was rumoured to be a facial slam on LeBron James at his own Nike event.
It caused such a stir that video cameras were removed from people in the audience and sent the country into hysterics, anticipating what the dunk was like.
Finally footage emerged and we all realised it was absolutely nothing. Typically it didn’t stop everyone making jokes on LeBron’s behalf, but we’ll let them have their hollow satisfaction.
Crawford is back in the news however, rather this time he is talking the talk rather than (somewhat) walking the walk. Crawford acknowledged former Wizard Michael Jordan (that doesn’t sound right does it) and says nothing will stand in his way in achieving a level of greatness higher than that of His Airness.
“When I’m done playing, I don’t want people to say, Michael Jordan is the best player. I want that to be me. That’s how I am. That’s how I was built.
I feel like I’m better than him, anyway. My mom is going to say I’m better than him.
If I say I’m better than that person and I’m not, that edge is going to help me out. That helps me check people. I want to intimidate people before they come at me. I want to always be attacking.”
Word of advice to Jordan Crawford, if you are trying to convince people you are better than anyone, particularly Michael Jordan, try to refrain from telling us your mom thinks you’re better than him as a justification for your argument. It’s not a good move man, just not a good move.
Let’s see if Milhouse can become a nightly starter first, then we’ll start talking about Jordan.
Who’s next? Kris Humphries?
It’s bad enough the Kardashian show presents him as ‘NBA Superstar Kris Humphries’. The only thing that makes him a star is that gigantic forehead, he should be the star of a freak show.
