With the NBA regular season almost over, Colin Cowherd is running out of time to get his cheap shots in against Washington Wizards rookie John Wall.
But Wall’s fight Wednesday night against Zydrunas Ilgauskas presented the perfect opportunity for Cowherd to strike again:
“People think I’m the antagonist with John Wall. Great young talent, goes to the NBA, does the Dougie his first time out, which I thought was pretty repulsive and immature. John Wall has been at times brilliant, at times irrelevant, mostly irrelevant this year.
For the second time this year, he was ejected from a game. Threw a punch last night, although the John Wall fans will say he was provoked. He wasn’t. Miami’s Zydrunas Ilgauskas, like anybody in the NBA, has a right to personal space. You have a right to grab a ball and extend your elbows. That’s all he did.
John Wall, it should be noted, remains a terrific young talent. Ejected twice, high-fived fans on the way out, and I’ll say it again: he’ll make seven All-Star teams to eight, but he’ll always be Marbury over Magic. I still question his leadership. But I’ll say this. he’s fun on this show to discuss.”
There’s only one Magic. But comparing Wall to Stephon Marbury after two ejections seems a little drastic.
After all, Cowherd can’t confirm that Wall eats vaseline.
