dont get me wrong, what hubie said was bad.
baby boy austin rivers looked like he belong in the league last night
If you're talking to me, I've already said multiple times I never seen those quotes before. Was straight up surprised to read them. There was no context so I have no clue when he said it or anything like that. It's like waking up tomorrow and reading some old quotes from Mister Rogers saying some wild ****.
Maybe @WavyCrocket is right and I'd like to think so. I hope he doesn't think that way anymore. I always had respect for Hubie and appreciate his analysis of the game. Even defended him on here a couple times throughout the years.
Then again, I've only ever known Hubie as an old *** dude and old *** dudes are usually stuck in their ways. Who knows.
I'm just shocked it came from him and no one in the current media ever brought it up. Like a Deadspin or one of those outlets.
And my main issue is with the "get over it, no big deal" type commentary from other folks.
