Former above-average NBA player turned-below average NBA coach Reggie Theus, in an interview with Isiah Jones from the website Global Sports Fraternity, said he believes that sports bloggers are a bunch of country bumpkins who never come in contact with real people and are generally a “real pain in the ass.” Here’s the entirety of what Theus said in the interview when he wasn’t getting interrupted by Mr. Jones:

Sports bloggers, um, you know what, yeah, they are very irritating because half of them don’t know what the hell they’re talking about. You know what, it’s a nice venue for people who live in rural areas that don’t get a chance to come in contact…they don’t get a chance to come in contact with real people, so they have to get on the blogs and they just make up stuff and they throw stuff on the wall and see if it sticks…every now and then you run into someone who knows what they’re talking about, um, for the most part, a real pain in the ass.

Damn! Theus must be handing out subpoenas to sports bloggers because we just got served!

Well, if Reggie Theus says so I guess it must be true. Do you know what else I imagine could be considered a pain in the ass? Being a fan of the Sacramento Kings as you led them to a 6-18 record last season before your ass got canned.

Still, he makes a good point. And how can’t you trust a person implicitly that was once a color commentator for Slamball? Not only that, he has had a photo like this taken of him, so you know he’s legit:

Yikes. Can you even imagine how many bottles of baby oil had to be sacrificed in order to complete that photo shoot?
