Let The Beat Build

Can we ever forget DeShawn Stevenson?

Most players wear their jerseys with pride, but Deshawn Stevenson took things a step further. The 2-guard, maybe known equally for his spats with LeBron as his game itself, turned his back into a Swingman, tatting his name and number on the template. When watching his game or just glancing at photos, it’s clear that Stevenson likes to let his personality show. — Adam Fleischer

    i love how in that piece in SLAM121, he talked about being like 10-15 copies of the carter 3 to support people he’s down with.

    “…likes to let his personality show” and his butt.

    Isn’t he forgotten already?

    Lil Wayne, much like Stevenson, sucks.

    Zee! What’s the problem?

  • Jacob

    I can’t stand Stevenson, all because he’s a LeBron hater

  • MeloMan13

    what if he gets traded to the hawks and Joe Johnson doesn’t give up his number?

  • Young Chris MP3

    Eboy, that is kind of the reason he got the tattoo in the first place.

  • Gumdrop

    Nothing he does now will ever top his lip-synch R&B video.

    I saw this dude one time in Vegas wearing more Louie V than Kanye. Looked like a bootleg Tron from Chappelle’s Show. Deshawn step up your taste (and game) please

    Fitting he’d be near a school since he enjoyed the under 18 crowd.

    Can rappers end ball players careers? If so, Jay needs to do a nail in the coffin diss track.

    I love Lebron but we need people like DS in this League … I saw him in Berlin, Germany this summer warming up with a lollypop in the mouth ! And I love his hightop haircut !

    J: Best burn I’ve heard today. And DJ: Oh yes that’s exactly what we need more of, sucky players with lollipops prancing around. Since warming up with a lollipop in your mouth is just so darn cool….

    whoever ds is playing ball with sure has some tight pants on. i don’t see how he could even dribble through his legs.

  • j-smoov 5

    Deshawn rocks.

  • Blinguo

    Even with the tight pants, he’s sagging too, what’s up with that? I had forgotten this looks like a BVD grey underwear shoot until now – or just never noticed when I read that article in that issue. Thanks for the reminder I didn’t ask for.
