There is a Bang Bus reference. Now let this be the last time we ever speak of the 2013 NBA Finals.
You might remember that when LeBron James first announced he was coming to the Heat in 2010, omnipresent media guy Dan Le Batard went a little nuts, yelling about giant royal penises to “O Fortuna” and such. Well, the Heat won the title, so he did it again.
Last year, Miami-area columnist and radio/TV personality Dan Le Batard made a bet with TNT analyst/shot taker Charles Barkley that the Heat would beat the Mavericks in the NBA Finals — and we all know how that worked out. Now, with the Heat on the cusp of the 2012 championship, Le Batard figured it was high time to pay up. The results were as unpleasant as you can imagine.
A few days ago, our colleague Frances Martel of Mediaite accidentally came upon an airing of intentionally strange ESPN2 program Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable. It was love at first sight. After the jump, her thoughts on a program that hits especially close to home.
Former NBA player John Amaechi, who played college basketball at Penn State, appeared on Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable today to give his thoughts on the child rape scandal surrounding former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, and his was one of the best takes we’ve yet heard.
Miami Herald columnist Dan Le Batard defended allegations of rampant Hurricane athlete misconduct by calling the charges “circumstantial” and the supplying of prostitutes to players “breaking laws made by mall cops.”
Shaquille O’Neal is one of the most iconic athletes in recent memory, and while his on-court accomplishments are a critical part of his legacy, just as important is that he has a personality to match his gargantuan frame.
But did that personality obscure facts of Shaq that weren’t so likable? Dan Le Batard at the Miami Herald thinks so. And when you look for them, you might be surprised at just how many examples there are of Shaq ripping people throughout his career…sometimes, it seems, for not much reason at all.
Dan Le Batard has made a reputation off defending the Miami Heat over the past few months. But as the Cleveland Cavaliers won last night’s NBA Draft Lottery, Le Batard may have taken his pro-Heat stance too far.
