Here is a little secret. I hate sports talk radio…virtually all of it. While I like Tony Kornheiser and in a pinch, will listen to Jim Rome, the average sports talk radio host makes me want to throw a punch at Bryan the Intern. With that in mind, I have long thought that Colin Cowherd embodies the worst of the sports talk radio host personality. Have strong opinions on everything…speak in absolutes…get people worked up just for the sake of doing it…and talk with 100% confidence about things you know nothing about. Case in point, today when Cowherd blasted John Wall on his show. He said that Wall was a “selfish” player, along the lines of Allen Iverson and Steve Francis because (get this), he danced during the player introductions last night. Leaving aside the fact that he just timed the ALL-TIME NBA RECORD FOR ASSISTS in a player’s first three games, Wall is now apparently selfish because he did the Dougie during introductions.
This is why I would rather have to wear Dick Gabriels’ former goatee than listen to ESPN Radio on a daily basis. Cowherd ignores the fact that his favorite player (Lebron) has done the same thing many times in the past and conveniently refuses to do any research on Wall as a player or person. While at Kentucky, he was beloved by teammates, coaches and fans, while not causing any person I ever heard to label him as “selfish.” But to Cowherd it is irrelevant….because he is a blowhard and has to have something to talk about.
If you would prefer a different type of radio show, one where the dominant topic was what topics would make a good “Free Enes or this occurring” type debate, then listen to our radio show below. It is much better for the soul:
