"Someone from Interscope Records called me and sent me the quote," Way said. "I looked and didn't really think much about it. LeBron said something like he was Jay-Z and DeShawn [Stevenson] is Soulja Boy. I took that as [disrespectful]."I know you're just dying for James' reaction to Soulja Boy's reaction, right? When asked about it following Friday's practice, James simply said he meant no disrespect. Considering Stevenson laid an egg (three points, 1-for-9 shooting) while James was his typical awesome self in Game 1, we can count on this silly little feud dying a quiet death, right?
If you thought for a second that might be the case, you're incredibly naive.
This thing is guaranteed to drag on the entire series considering Stevenson has invited Soulja Boy to sit courtside while wearing a Wizards jersey once the series returns to D.C., which Soulja Boy happily accepted.
"I'm all for it," Way said. "He invited me out, and I don't have a problem coming . . . I'm [cheering] for whoever backs me. I can't go for whoever's going against me."Most likely, that's where this thing ends, especially if the Wizards lose the series. Soulja Boy is open to stretching this manufactured feud out indefinitely, though, saying he'd be open to teaming up with Stevenson for a game of 2-on-2 against Jay-Z and LeBron for charity.
No, it's not going to happen in a million years. If one good thing comes of this, though, it's that LeBron won't make the mistake of invoking the name of a one-hit wonder desperate for the spotlight ever again.
