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.'”
