So, even when JaVale — or Pierre, as he goes by on Twitter for some inexplicable reason — makes a controversial statement, you have to think about it. Have to give it its due, so to speak. Like that thing he said about his mom:
I can’t speak to how gangsta his moms is, but she does look like she will take no guff, no guff at all.
And last night, after JaVale/Pierre/The Greatest Dude In The World ridiculed his teammate, Wilson Chandler, I had to do some thinking.
â€œ@wilsonchandler: Had a great time at the Blackhawks/Red Wings gameâ€BOOORING
Is hockey, in fact, BOOORING? Have I been misunderstanding it this whole time? Were all those state championships I watched my high school win just a side-effect of a dreamlike fugue state? Is my life actually a David Lynch film?
I’m going to have to pull rank here, JaVale — hockey is many things, but it isn’t boring.
