A lot of controversy has been made over Washington Wizards’ guard John Wall’s new tattoos. (see the picture of his new tats after the jump) I read an article before on USA Today that pretty much said that the Wizards shouldn’t resign John Wall to big money because the organization can’t trust him based off his new tattoos. Really? You can’t trust a guy because he has some questionable tattoos now? Let me show you why that is just ridiculous. Let’s look at some of the best players in the NBA. LeBron James is without a doubt the best player in the world…and he has tattoos. Kevin Durant made First Team All-NBA this year…and he has tattoos. Kobe Bryant single-handedly carried the Lakers to the playoffs this year…and he has tattoos Carmelo Anthony led the league in scoring this year…and he has tattoos. Derrick Rose is the only player in the last 5 years to win MVP not named LeBron James…and he has tattoos. These are just some of the great NBA players that have tattoos. If I had to...

Writer Says John Wall Getting a Tattoo, Means He Isn’t “Clean Cut” & Bad Decision Maker

I would respect the Washington Post writer Jason Reid if he would stop with the coded language and just say what he really means. He is saying that John Wall is too black, is presenting a thug image and because of that he shouldn’t be given a max contract. Don’t beat around the bush and insult our intelligence, we know what this means. Wall is expected to receive a huge payday...

Jan Vesely Does Beastie Boys Parody

The 6′ 11″ forward for the Washington Wizards is getting in touch with his artistic side this off-season by having a featured role in a parody video of the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage.”  According to the video, Vesely is the “wrong Czech” to mess with.
