Today the Wizards may have been barely beaten by the Cavaliers but there is a bigger story brewing, the feud of DeShawn Stevenson vs. Lebron James. It’s already starting to bubble with the pre-halftime confrontation between the 2 teams.
First Stevenson said this in March:
DeShawn was obviously holding back in that session with reporters around his locker. When he was leaving the building, Mike Lee was chatting him up and mentioned LeBron again. DeShawn has obviously heard enough of that.
“He’s overrated,” DeShawn told Mike. “And you can say I said that.”
Lebron responded with this:
“With DeShawn Stevenson, it’s kind of funny. It’s almost like Jay-Z [responding to a negative comment] made by Soulja Boy. It doesn’t make sense to respond.”
What a horrible analogy. And by using the analogy isn’t that some sort of response anyway?
What does DeShawn do?
In fact, Stevenson responded to James’ comments by inviting Way to an upcoming playoff game. Stevenson promised to have Way at courtside in a Wizards jersey. Way said he will accept the invitation. He is expected to attend either Game 3 or Game 4 in Washington.
Watch, to make it harder to hate on him, Soulja Boy will become the Wizards lucky charm as they’ll beat the Cavs in 7.
“I’m all for it,” Way said. “He invited me out, and I don’t have a problem coming . . . I’m [cheering] for whoever backs me. I can’t go for whoever’s going against me.”
It really is amazing that Soulja Boy is still getting any sort of mention at all here at ML.
