The Soulja Boy Factor?
With the series shifting back to the Washington, and the Wizards pretty embarassed after a terrible performance in Game 2, it's easy to forget all of the LeBron James-DeShawn Stevenson talk. Or that Soulja Boy may or may not be at Verizon Center on Thursday night.
Soulja Boy, whose real name is DeAndre Way, told Branson Wright of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he felt LeBron James's comments comparing himself to Jay-Z and DeShawn Stevenson to Soulja Boy were disrespectful. (I'm not quite sure if DeShawn should feel disrespected as well, since Way is basically saying that being compared to DeShawn ain't cool).
Way, the one-hit wonder behind the monster, "Crank That," and the popular "Soulja Boy Dance" said he had never seen James play basketball and may take up Stevenson's offer to attend Games 3 and 4. He was photographed wearing a Cleveland No. 23 jersey before James "dissed" him, but Stevenson has a Wizards No. 2 waiting for him. Either way, it will be interesting to see if the Jumbotron at the Verizon Center will be playing this on Thursday night:
James was asked on Tuesday if he planned on doing his "Soulja Boy" this week.
"Nah," James said. "I got my Roc Boy dance ready."
I don't know what that dance looks like, but I like this song.
