Kevin Johnson Blogs About Getting Robbed

KJ took to the interwebs to discuss his brush with society’s criminal element: “I didn’t expect to be a crime victim on the streets of San Francisco. Nobody does. But it happened, on a beautiful evening this past weekend near Union Square. As crimes go, it could have been much worse. I was helping an elderly man when somebody sneaked up behind me and stole my garment bag. I lost a nice suit, a nice pair of shoes and overnight toiletries. Not the end of the world, but frustrating. The real crime was the vulnerability of it all, the idea that I could leave my bag on a crowded street, turn my back for 30 seconds and have my stuff stolen.”

    I’m disappointed. For a player with the court vision to know where every assailant was on the court, along with solid ball security, he let that dude get an easy steal.

    Also, this is still T-Mac’s fault.

    seriously, this sucks. but as he said, it could’ve been worse.

  • mbizzy

    How about less cameras and more morals?

  • Joe

    You cant turn your back for any amount of time, everybody knows the defensive rule “Bag-You-Man(elderly)”!!

    The elderly man was probably part of the plan. Moral of the story, don’t help old people.

  • Brian

    Incidents like these would be greatly reduced if we could implement those death panels.

    In my city when you get robbed, there’s usually a gun in someone face and a fear that it’s over. But like he said it could have been worse.

    “I was helping an elderly man when somebody sneaked up behind me and stole my garment bag.”
    Hahahahaha he totally got hustled by a pimp.

  • Eddie LOmax

    Word, the old man was in on it. Hakeem to. It’ll be funny seeing some punk on the streets wearing a custom 3 peice with some shower gel and clean ass teeth.

  • LeoneL

    Hahaha.. I thought he was told by the mugger to strip what he was wearing!
