Am I allowed to hate on this move? There's no potential spin that a bunch of NFL purists (racists) could put on story and use it to call Cam Newton a thug, right? I mean, his hat is even facing the 'right way' for Colin Cowherd. There's literally no way to make this a race issue until they show him up on the JumboTron dabbing in his seat. And for that, I am thankful, because it's about goddamn time I was in a safe enough space to criticize Cam Newton without being lumped into a group of a bunch of uptight bigots.
Hey Cam, you're a MVP candidate, maybe don't purchase your jerseys at the swap meet? Good Lord, I had to double check to make sure that '30' wasn't slapped on there with teal duct tape, and if you're being honest with yourself, you just looked at the picture again to see if I was right. I get what Cam was trying to do here. It was 'Dell Curry Night' and the Hornets were playing the Warriors. He basically just wore a 2015 jersey to show equal amounts of support for the city he plays in, a great player that used to also play there, and that player's son who happens to be tearing up the NBA. Too much, simply too much. Wearing a Dell Curry jersey that could easily be mistaken for a completely irrelevant Steph Curry jersey is like the slightly more intricate version of Knicks fans that bought New York LeBron jerseys. Might as well just just waste the time, effort, and money to have a Warriors jersey and throwback Hornets jersey sewn together like a true asshole. Just pick one team to root for, or one player to celebrate. You want to honor Dell Curry then call up the connect you undoubtedly have at 'Mitchell & Ness' and have him whip up one of these bad boys....
Not only because they are far better looking than what the Hornets wear now, but because sports jerseys aren't supposed to feature double entendres. I shouldn't have to put together moving parts to figure out where your allegiance lies. I'm sure Cam Newton is a Steph Curry fan as well, because really, who isn't? However, if he wants to show people that then he should use his court side seats and position of power to dap him at halftime like every other rich athlete or celebrity does. This was 'DELL Curry Night' (even though Steph was the one putting up 28 points in a quarter), and if only for a few hours, his career deserves 100% of the attention or no attention at all.
