BC reader Rashad A. sent word today that he’s been infatuated lately with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and this celebrity diving competition, ‘Splash.’
“Kareem has been having quite an entertaining few days. He was in the Darth Vader mask, and now he’s doing back flips off a diving board. The guy is a machine.”
That he is.
Let’s not forget that Kareem is 7-foot-2 and 65 years old. How many 7-foot black guys do you know who can do back flips off a spring board? You ever see Manute Bol go off a diving board. Sure, he’s dead, but what about when he was alive? Of course you didn’t.
What about Dikembe?
As for white 7-footers, you ever see Mark Eaton – former Salt Lake City Jazz stud – doing diving board flips? No you haven’t.
Need any other reason to watch this crazy ABC show, ‘Splash’ when it premieres on March 19 at 8 EST? You’ll also get Katherine Webb in a swimsuit providing the scenery.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
