Lil Wayne: “Richard Sherman Is Not A Great Player”
I stopped valuing anything Lil Wayne said a long time ago, but sometimes we have to respond to the absurd.
Wayne, the band-wagon king has a lot of opinions on everything going on at the Super Bowl. The self professed Packers fan did an interview with Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback, and did his best to rip Richard Sherman.
Wayne, who comes off as more hater than sports expert said that “Sherman was not a great player.”
“To me, the Richard Sherman thing … I think he does it, I don’t want to say for attention, I don’t believe it’s for attention, but I believe there is a technique to what he is doing. It all of a sudden doesn’t seem so natural. It seems like it used to be Richard Sherman loves to trash talk, but now, it’s kind of a technique. Not natural. I’ve seen people go back at him, and when they tell him something back or he gets his face busted, there’s no more barking. That tells me, I’m really not like this, I’m really not aggressive. I think it’s Richard Sherman mouthing off … I know the media likes to say he’s backing it up with his play. Well, Richard Sherman comes from the same place I come from, the street, and he’s doing a lot of talking where he really can’t back it up. I think he’s a shutdown player. But a great player? No. Great? I don’t think he’s a great player. Now if he plays great against Peyton, that will be huge. If he performs tremendously, that will [change things].”
So I guess Wayne saying Sherman is a fraud would be like someone such as myself saying that Wayne will never back up his tough street talk in which he speaks of putting hits out on people, and busting guns.
We know Lil Wayne doesn’t bust guns, but does that stop him from being a great rapper?
