You hate when the pot calls the kettle black. NBA star Kenyon Martin is no masterpiece himself, but he seems to take issue with the hit show, “Basketball Wives.” Martin seems to think that the women on the show are worthless and that the show itself is garbage. Not that we disagree with him, but maybe he’d better get his life straight before he starts attacking Evelyn Lozada.
But he does have a point and a right to make it. The show “Basketball Wives” has lowered, not elevated, the collective intelligence of black people. Also, garbage media like this shows the importance of emerging platforms like the Internet and other black TV networks to give the rest of us a chance to get away from the nonsense. Newsone.com tells more:
When TMZ caught up with former NBA baller Kenyon Martin to ask his opinion on the“Basketball Wives” franchise conceived by Shaunie O’Neal, ex-wife of another ex-baller,Shaquille O’Neal, he didn’t even try to hold back his contempt.
“Honestly, I don’t watch that s**t, man,” said the former Los Angeles Clippers forward. “It’s toxic to your soul to watch that s**t, man.”
He went on to call the show inauthentic:
“I been married, man; that ain’t nothing that went on in my household.”
According to various media reports, Martin’s marriage to estranged wife Heather (who allegedly left three children and a husband to marry Martin) did not stop him from beginning a relationship with Hip-Hop sexpot Trina. That clustermuck sounds exactly like a ‘BBW’ episode to us, but different strokes for different folks.
