This Jason Whitlock appearance with Keith Olbermann is an eruption of dumb, and I’m not just talking about that hat. The stuff coming out of Whitlock’s mouth is even more ridiculous than the thing perched atop his head.
Of all Whitlock’s dubious statements, including that nonsensical crap about LeBron James wanting to be Muhammad Ali, the one that stands out is this brain-turd about Andrew Wiggins and Canadian athletes and their level of “wanting it.”
I don’t want to attach this to LeBron’s camp, [but] Andrew Wiggins is from Canada. Canadian athletes, I think, among NBA players and NBA people, perhaps don’t want it as much as even some of the Europeans and certainly the American players.
Because Canadians are so laid-back and nice, you see? They don’t have the same competitive fire as Americans who are brought up to be mean and nasty and full of wanting it.
If you want to be a good basketball player, you have to be an arrogant super-motivated bastard. Or at least really sneaky and smart like those Europeans.
Canadians are both slightly dumb and a little too nice. And that’s why Andrew Wiggins probably won’t turn out to be as good as some people think. Even though he is only half-Canadian.
Straight from Whitlock’s mouth into the puke bucket of the internet. Good work, Whitlock. You out-Baylessed Bayless.
Go easy on him Canadians. I know I don’t even have to tell you that because you go easy on everyone.
