Colin Cowherd vs. John Wall: We were watching Colin Cowherd’s radio show on ESPN yesterday and tweeted the ESPN radio host’s bizarre comments about Wizards rookie John Wall. After seeing Wall dance during the introductions of his first home game, Cowherd said, “J Wall’s 37-second ‘Yo dawg look at me I’m the man dance’ … [has] everybody else is buying his stock, and it told me all I need to know: He’s gonna end up on the Iverson, Francis, Starbury side … He’s gonna drive people nuts.” (You can hear the entire rant here.) He went on to say Wall will never get a ring. The rip-job reminded us of these comments Cowherd made about Kevin Durant prior to the 2007 draft. Today, Cowherd had an attempt to back-track, but passed. He said Wall was like Derrick Rose – fast and athletic – but that’s not his style. He likes old-school types, like John Stockton (who never won a ring, for what it’s worth). Internet reaction was massive. [Bog, Rick Bozich, KSR, SBB, Sportsgrid]
