What Barbershop does Rob Parker and Skip Bayless go to?
I am really curious because I have been going to barbershops every couple of weeks of my life since I can remember and I have heard all type of crazy sports talk, but nothing like the barbershop they talk about on 1st take.
The last time I was at the barbershop ironically enough they were talking about RG3 and Andrew Luck. The conversation was who would be better? Someone through out Russell Wilson would end up better than both of them. I said Luck would be better long term (guess what if you didn’t know I am Black). The only time race was mentioned was when someone said.
“I hope they treat RG3 and Wilson like all the other QBs in the league, just give them a fair shake and treat them equally.”
Amazingly that is the same thing RG3 said.
Someone also said Brandon Weeden would win a Super Bowl next year, there is a reason it is called Barbershop talk.
Basketball is talked about a lot in the Barbershop and I promise you in over 20 years of being in barbershops no one has ever complained about any NBA player trying to be like Larry Bird.
Larry Bird might have been white, but he could ball and if you can ball you get the respect from everyone.
But, once again there is a guy at the Barbershop who swears Kobe went to Duke. That is why it is called Barbershop Talk.
It is asinine that Skip would even pose this question to Rob Parker.
I think George Gervin was a great NBA player, but why would any be critical of Kevin Durant wanting to be compared to a 3 time NBA champion and one of the Top 10 players of all time?
I can’t recall anyone with any common sense who said “I wish KD compared himself to a black guy”.
Let’s just cut the BS. There is no Barbershop, these thoughts are Rob Parker’s thoughts and his alone. Skip Bayless is his puppetmaster and Parker has fallen into the trap. In his efforts to be more like Skip he has only found himself suspended and probably fired from ESPN.
