Beard Challenge '07: Drew Gooden Responds


More beard.

I've encouraged every out-of-town NBA reporter I know (a group that boasts about three members) to help provide the world with the most extensive beard-growing coverage possible. Luckily, SLAM's Lang Whitaker has already stepped up by getting an e-mailed comment from Drew Gooden, concerning his challenge with DeShawn Stevenson. Writes Gooden:

I already lost to him in a High School State Championship, but beat him in last year's Playoffs. This one would put me ahead 2-1 when I win!" D Good 90

Well, it's not exactly John Paul Jones aboard the Bonhomme Richard, but we'll take it I guess. Lang also suggests that he and I take opposing sides in this chintastic struggle; he'll endorse Drew Gooden, and I'll stand by DeShawn Stevenson. "It's like West Side Story, except with beards!" he notes. Now if we could only get Oleksiy Pecherov and Sasha Pavlovic to square off in a kasha-and-borscht eating contest, I could die happy.

That explains why Deshawn is so d*** hairy....

Hopefully, he wins the bet before he gets too Wolverinish.

This team could stand to look/be a little more burly. I think they should ALL grow beards, and I'm still getting over Caron having his facial hair lasered.

Steinz, I can't believe you just name-checked a Revolutionary War figure. Most excellent--I feel unexpectedly edified.

WithLeather, this blog is not.
