Does anyone remember the rapper Chingy?
If you don’t this may jog your memory.
Back when I had aspirations of being a rapper in my early 20s I had a song called “I Like That” and I let some local producers hear the track, those same producers happened to be working with Chingy. At this point Chingy was relatively unknown except in local circles.
Imagine my surprised when “Right Thurr” came out with an eerily similar hook to “I Like That”, no I can’t prove they stole it, but the seed was probably planted.
So I get Michael Scrivner being a little salty at Blake Griffin, because while he can’t prove it was his tweet that planted the seed of the Car Dunk, the evidence seems to be in his favor.
The guy with the gripe is Michael Scrivner — who claims he was watching ESPN earlier this month when he saw Griffin asking fans for dunk ideas … so he fired off a twitter message to Blake on Feb. 8 specifically outlining the car dunk — complete with the pass from inside the sun roof.
Now, Scrivner is PISSED that Griffin hasn’t given him any credit for the idea — telling TMZ, “He could have at least given me a shout out!”
Scrivner adds, “If he already had the idea for the dunk, why go on SportsCenter asking for ideas? It would be one thing if I had said to just dunk over a car, but the dunk was spot on everything I suggested.”
It could be possible more than one person put in that suggestion even though Scrivner was very specific with his and that is exactly what Griffin did in the dunk contest.
Griffin should just give him a jersey and a head nod to make it all go away.
