Another DeShawn Shooting Competition!!!!!!!
But I can't write about it. Sorry. Embargo.
I can say this: DeShawn Stevenson won a shooting contest today against an out-of-town non-basketball playing professional.
"It happens to the best of us," DeShawn consoled his foe when it was over.
(DeShawn's victory celebration today also included him yelling "chicken and grits, grits and chicken," and asking for his victory to be put in the paper, which, of course, is not feasible just yet.)
("Everyone wants to shoot against DeShawn now," Brendan Haywood declared when he heard about this latest contest. "They think they can get an easy win.")
Anyhow, the fallen foe then asked for a rematch.
"I don't do rematches," DeShawn said.
This, however, went against his previously stated goal to have another three-point contest with Gil. I asked DeShawn whether Gil would grant a rematch.
"Oh he has to," DeShawn said. "He cheated me."
Like everyone else, DeShawn and Gilbert have been watching their three-point shooting contest on YouTube. DeShawn said he's only seen it twice; my sources indicate that Gil has watched it many more times than that.
"He called me as soon as he got home and told me to watch it," DeShawn said. "You know, when you watch it on YouTube it looks even more crazier than doing it out there."
I asked him whether he's heard from friends about the performance.
"I've heard from everybody, everybody's been hitting me: my family, people I used to play with," he said. "I'm doing a thing tomorrow on Cold Pizza about it. It's been kind of crazy."
(The Cold Pizza segment is scheduled for 11:15 AM tomorrow; check local listings. And you have to give wizardsdotcom major credit for being the trigger finger behind this whole phenomenon, although you'll note that he's only too happy to take such credit.)
As for his victory today, DeShawn said it didn't make up for his earlier loss.
"That's peons," DeShawn said of his vanquished foe. "He's not on my level."
One final note: world famous Post columnist Gene Weingarten was at practice today. When he introduced himself to Wizards PR whiz Zack Bolno, Zack asked him if he was the Gene who writes The Post's fantasy football column. This struck me as mind-blowingly hilarious.
