Did I just say "Abe Lincoln"? No, I used a quote from the vastly underrated Robin Hood: Men in Tights. But speaking of Honest Abe, he's now a neck ornament for DeShawn Stevenson (as Basketbawful reader Scott correctly pointed out).

hey blinkin
Is it just me, or is this weird even by DeShawn's standards?

DeShawn's other new tats include a backwards Pittsburgh Pirates "P" and a Frankenstein crack on his forehead. And as always, I'm not kidding. According to Mike Jones of the Washington Times:

On his left cheek bone is inked the Pittsburgh Pirate's "P", "for the Pittsburgh, that's my favorite team. Barry Bonds, when he first started." The thing about the P is, however, that it's backwards and looks more like a 9. DeShawn tried to explain, "No, if you're standing where Dom’s standing and looking at me, it looks like a P." Dominic McGuire was standing directly in front of him about 10 yards away, but it still looked like a 9. I think DeShawn meant to say, "when I look in the mirror it looks like a P." The final new tat is a crack on the left side of Stevenson's forehead. He said it's because "I don’t crack. I feel like people always try to break me, but I don't crack. So, I put that there."
Many thanks to DeShawn for reminding me (once again) why I started this blog. More pics at Truth About It.

I seriously think the NBA, or some of the teams, need to put a restriction on these kind of tatoo's. It delivers such a bad message. It's getting to much.

You gotta be completly wacked out of your mind to get tatoo's like that!!

Nothing surprises me anymore about Stevenson.

In other news, the "foulover" machine known as Jake Voskuhl looks like he'll be in the league again for one more year. Of course, it's my freakin Mavericks that sign him. *SIGH*

the comment over there is "looks like that one reporter is trying to interview Abe!"

@ Don Ebay Mølse, Stern has to be thinking about it because its getting out of hand. The players will probably cry about it but most of us can't get away with visible tattoos on our arms and hands in the workplace, these guys are pushing they're luck with getting tats on their necks and faces.

who DOES that??? LOL

I once met a girl in highschool who had the knickname "Angel". Nobody really called her that - and trust me, she didn't act the part. Either way, she decided to get her knickname tattooed on her ankle. NBD. Sadly, the artist was a dumbass and misspelled it - Angel now had "Anqel" spelled out in bold cursive on her ankle - in case, you know, she forgot where it was...

That was by far the stupidest tattoo ever up until I saw a backwards P. Thank you DeShawn, you are officially retarded.

Stotts Era: If you are heckling Stevenson, might I suggest: "Show us your crack!"

Blogger AnacondaHL said...
I'm going to be honest. This is the first time in a long time that I couldn't tell whether someone was just trolling hard, or genuinely does not know English as a first language.

That, or Liking Lakers is the greatest and most fitting blog for the Lakers ever.

Blogger Caleb Smith said...
Haha... "are you LIKING too?" gives it away. Definitely trolling hard, and doing a good job. I love it. I particularly liked:

"Count Down part of blogs. It start now!"

Stern should definitely crack down on these tattoos. It makes a mockery of the NBA dress code regulations when someone gets tattoos on their face. People will think some of the players are COLORED at this rate!

Blogger chris said...
AnacondaHL and Caleb Smith: Indeed, it is the greatest team blog in the Association today! Maybe Bawful should try that approach for Bulls By The Horns. ;)

John: thats prob gang

--> what would lead one to believe that a 9 on someone's face is gang related?
oh wait...nvr mind

face tattoos make a mockery of the NBA dress code

---> the NBA has long positioned itself as an entertainment brand. when you go to a rock concert and/or rap concert you will see the entertainers numerous tattoos. you see tennis players tats (albeit not as much), football players love to show off their tats, baseball players... i always wondered why was it that people hold NBA to a diff standard. NHL has daily fighting... MLB regularly has fighting.. that puzzles me

oh wait nvr mind

Is LikingLakers a joke?

Anonymous Anonymous said...
Did the Liking Lakers guy use incorrect English on purpose?

Because, if you read his blog, his understanding of English is even worse.
