Spencer Hawes is All Kinds of Awesome

Take that, Bennett: “As the Kings’ second-year center strolled through Ford Center on Sunday, his message was clear from the yellow suit and green dress shirt to the Space Needle tie. ‘I was a big Sonics fan growing up, born and raised in Seattle,” Hawes said. “I think it’s a travesty that they were taken away after 40 years, and this is my way of showing it.’”

    Is that the same Spencer Hawes who has that “God Bless George W. Bush” bumper sticker, doesn’t believe in global warming and laughs at your poverty?

  • Donn

    This is great…just got some new found respect for Spencer..

    He’d be my new favorite player except for the whole Ann Coulter thing.

    What was the Ann Coulter thing?

    If he wasn’t so outrageously republican and just as Russ stated, I’d love the kid. But I have to admit, he’s got a way of tongue in cheek dress attire.

    Thank god, there’s no picture. Ann Coulter’s voice makes me want to vomit.

    Spencer is a douche but that was all indeed all kinds of awesome. (I don’t really know if he’s a douche, but he sure does make douche-like political statements)
    About global warming, most people who ‘believe’ in it could not begin to explain it. It’s a theory that is not shared by all experts on the subject. That being said, it should not have any bearings on governments acting to protect the environment. The environment must be protected regardless of global warming.

    I’d like Spencer Hawes to take a drive around my area in Australia right now and tell me Global Warming doesn’t exist… we are currently in the middle of the worst bushfires in Australian history – whole towns destroyed and thousands of hectares of forest cleared by fires that have killed over 150 people since Saturday. This is after a week of 43 degrees plus heat wave (equivalent to around 115 degrees Fahrenheit). Tell me that’s not climate change, Douche. However, nice suit.

    So a guy’s a douche just because he doesn’t agree with you? I’m not saying I do, I’m just saying, let the guy think what he wants. At least he speaks up for what he believes, even if we don’t agree with him on it.

    As the only guy who supported McCain, Spencer gets credit just for the fact that he can have his own opinions and backs them instead of falling in to what so many people-basketball player or not-have fallen in to.

    mdshuai33: if a guy disagrees with you, he’s not a douche. If a guy disagrees with you and has a douchy opinion, he’s a douche.

  • doyouwantmore

    If a guy has no opinion he’s a douche.

    Andrew didn’t mention that in other areas of the country tens of millions of dollars worth of flooding damage has occured. In Sydney it was 110(far) 2 straight days and now the fire death toll is almost at 200.
