Time for a Change
Ever since he stepped on the Tennessee Basketball scene, we’ve all noticed Bobby Maze‘s eerie similarity to Allen Iverson. In case you’re one of the seven Vol fans who hasn’t made this connection, check this out:
So, now that we have established that they are indeed twins, let’s get back to my point….
For the last ten or fifteen years, there have been very few constants in the sports’ world: the BCS effing everything up, Bob Knight in a sweater-vest, Tennessee’s domination of Kentucky in football, and Allen Iverson’s cornrows.
These were all things you could count on, like the sun rising in the morning or the tide changing. That is, until last week at the NBA All-Star celebration, when Allen Iverson cut off his hair.
That’s right, the cornrows are no mo’. Allen Iverson got his ears lowered.
This leaves Bobby Maze with only one sensible option: follow suit. It’s obvious the young man has been taking advantage of his AI-likeness by sporting the same look on his dome as the man who made practice irrelevant:
We are talking about practice…. Practice….not the game…not the game I will die for…We talking about practice…Practice…What are we talking about???? Practice…
And there’s nothing wrong with this. People tell me I look like MC Hammer, so I of course rep parachute pants like it’s my job. We all want to be famous, and this is probably as close as I’ll ever get, so yes, I’m going to take advantage of it.
But if MC Hammer all of the sudden started repping skinny jeans, and I stuck with the parachute pants, we’d have lost our connection. No one would recognize me as an MC Hammer lookalike. I’d just be the weird-ass guy in the huge pants who can’t dance worth shit.
So, Bobby Maze must do what is necessary. As long as his cornrows continue to grow, he’ll remain only a shadow of his former self. So, for you and for your team, Bmaze, cut that hair, and take on your role as Allen Iverson’s lookalike once again.
