DeShawn Stevenson Stuff

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Tuesday, August 4, 2009

In case you missed the Michael Lee articles from the other day, he wrote a big one in the Sunday paper, and one on the Insider, all about DeShawn Stevenson, who has been MIA this offseason.

Last season when Stevenson was working on his big 2nd place consecutive game streak (he never would have passed Tayshaun Prince) it came out in the media that Stevenson had told coach Tapscott that he would like to be removed from the starting lineup to help the team. At the time it sounded like a valiant move by a guy who realized he had lost his mojo.

It turns out that Tapscott actually benched Stevenson, and lied to the media in respect for Stevenson's hard work. Twist!

The article talks about how Stevenson was hurt all year and played through it because he didn't want to let the team down (according to him) So maybe this year, after all the training and all the healing, we will once again see Mr. Fitty instead of Mr. Two Fitty (his former weight)...

But more likely we will see Mr. Nikky, Mr. Randy, & Mr. Mikey...
