Here We Go Again: Whitlock Takes Another Shot At Serena Williams’ Weight


Jason Whitlock, a/k/a the “Round Mound that Smaller Planets Can Orbit Around,” is back at it on his crusade against all things Serena Williams. You may recall a column penned by the acerbic writer from earlier this summer where he had this to say about Serena Williams:

With a reduction in glut, a little less butt and a smidgen more guts, Serena Williams would easily be as big as Michael Jackson, dwarf Tiger Woods and take a run at Rosa Parks.

Oh snap! Now, in his most recent column, “Serena’s a whiner, Jordan was a winner,” he makes the argument that because of her behavior, Serena will never be looked upon as a great champion a la Michael Jordan, whom Whitlock defends for his questionably arrogant and petty Hall of Fame speech, where Jordan took shots at several people from his past.

Argument aside, and Whitlock makes a compelling one for why we shouldn’t look down on Jordan for his antics, he utlizes the moment to take another shot at Serena’s weight.

Everybody knows damn well Serena has no business losing a major to a baby’s mama. And everyone knows damn well if Serena dropped 20 pounds and focused on her game, she’d be untouchable.

Zaaa-ing! I don’t know what Serena ever did to Whitlock, but it clearly made its mark on the man’s psyche. My guess she spurned his unwelcome advances. That or cut in front of him in a buffet line.

Either way, how great would it be to get these two in the ring for a little Celebrity Boxing grudge match? I know I’d tune in to that debacle.

You know, because Serena would kick ten kinds of dog crap out of Whitlock, of course.
