I’m letting someone else take on Colin Cowherd

Content provided by John Clay’s Sidelines.

Loyal blog readers know I am no Colin Cowherd fan. But I listen to The Heard. Only I didn’t listen today. Started to listen, did hear a little bit of his Al Michaels’ interview, but then he started to talk about Brett Favre or Donovan McNabb and I quickly hit the pre-set button.

Anyway, seems Colin said something bad about John Wall, and some are in an uproar.

I didn’t hear it. I’m not going to comment on it. But Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog and the Washington Post did hear it, or was directed to it, and he did comment on it. He also has a transcript of what Cowherd said.

An excerpt from Colin’s rant:

“Much like I called out Greg Oden, I’m gonna call out John Wall….Before the game started, he spent 34 seconds doing the Dougie. That tells me all I need to know about J-Wow. Then he opened his mouth later and confirmed it: not a sharp guy. All about him. In that line last night, that 29-point line, when he was out of control, he had 8 turnovers. By the way, Rajon Rondo had 17 assists last night, 0 turnovers. Rajon’s got rings, Wall will never have one.”

It goes on from there.

I think it is safe to say that Colin Cowherd has never met John Wall, so therefore he knows everything there is to know about John Wall. That’s all.
