And I thought comparing yourself to Soulja Boy and then getting your ass handed to you by Jay-Z on wax for calling LeBron “overrated” was your first fail to make my attention.

No, this right here makes my list because once again the whole “basketball players and other folks who have no thug credibility getting sleeved in random tattoos all over their bodies” to emulate rappers and musicians such as Lil’ Wayne & Travis McCoy has been taken to a whole new level. J.R. Smith had no ink when he came into the league – now he looks like a Billboard. But, in what might top that Boosie fan for worst tattoo of the year – DeShawn went Honest Abe & Pittsburgh Pirate on us.

Mike James of the Washington Post even asked about these random decisions:

On his left cheek bone is inked the Pitsburgh Pirate’s ‘P’, “for the Pittsburgh, that’s my favorite team. Barry Bonds, when he first started.” The thing about the P is, however, that it’s backwards and looks more like a 9. DeShawn tried to explain, “No, if you’re standing where Dom’s standing and looking at me, it looks like a P.” Dominic McGuire was standing directly in front of him about 10 yards away, but it still looked like a 9. I think DeShawn meant to say, “when I look in the mirror it looks like a P.” The final new tat is a crack on the left side of Stevenson’s forehead. He said it’s because “I don’t crack. I feel like people always try to break me, but I don’t crack. So, I put that there.”

Still no answer for why the Wizards will suck this season.
