DeShawn Stevenson Says He Has Too Many Tattoos to be on Facebook

In a recent Facebook status update, some guy posting as Mavs swingman DeShawn Stevenson referred to LeBron James as “overrated.” But it wasn’t the real DeShawn Stevenson, the real DeShawn Stevenson is claiming, with some pretty absurd reasoning being used as evidence. Via ESPN Dallas: “DeShawn Stevenson does not have a Facebook page. That’s newsworthy because somebody who claims to be Stevenson posted on Facebook: ‘I told em Lebron is Overrated but did they listen? swag.’ Coach Rick Carlisle caught wind of that and confronted Stevenson, telling him to stop talking trash about LeBron James. Stevenson, whose history of taking verbal jabs at King James goes back several years, was confused and told his coach that the latest comment didn’t come from him. ‘There’s like 37 people that are acting like me on Facebook,’ Stevenson said. ‘I mean, if you look at me and look at all these tattoos, do you think I’d be sitting on the Internet and typing? C’mon, man. Sometimes you’ve got to look at a person. I would not be in my house on a computer typing nothing about anybody.’ Stevenson said he doesn’t know how to use Facebook. Nor does he want to learn. ‘I can’t get on there because I would say something reckless,’ Stevenson said. ‘That’s why I don’t have nothing on there. That’s why really I can’t have one.’”

    If he doesn’t know how to use facebook, how does he know how many people are impersonating him?

    I hate all the fakers on f/b and twitter.. The only way to really know if its legit or not is to view their photos, if all their pictures are in-game shots, they’re not who they say they are.. (look for them to be dressed casual, or family pics).

    To be fair, there are some pretty funny fakers on fb. The Brian Cardinal faker is kinda hilarious, only if you take them as a joke and realise they are fake.

    Facebook is for children anyway. A millionaire should be focused on maintaining wealth, or at least trying not to become a broke ass statistic.

    Then again, if he does go broke in ten years he can always try out for my knicks!

    @justin – because dumbass he has ‘friends’ who tell him things, that’s right ‘friends’….can you imagine that? actually having someone in your life who cares about you?


    Facebook, Twitter? To hell w/em.

    Sometimes it’s best to be quiet and have people think your stupid than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    If you read the Terms and Conditions when you first activate a facebook account, it clearly says that as a facebook user you can have as many tats as you like, provided that you do NOT have an itty bitty band-aid on your neck and/or are insane.

    haha @justin got a point

    Face books and twitters aren’t for children. I think it’s a good idea for NBA players to have one, not to talk trash but be role models and be motivating.. It’s also motivating for them to have so many fans.. Those fakers can be funny I agree but sometimes if they quote like their actually saying it. It’s illegal. So jokes ya but smash talk, no

  • Towelie

    Does Deshawn Stevenson have a twitter though?

    Hey Bron Bron, you thought Soulja Boy was obnoxious now?
    Wait till he waves that championship Tiara/Iphone6/WWE-Belt/Jordans that Cubes is having designed in your face next season.
    It’s gonna be ugly.

    DeShawn is saying he’s too cool and gets too much p*ssy to be in front of a computer, that’s my interpretation. The latter part where he says he could be too reckless is just a smokescreen.
