Ty Lawson on Twitter: It Wasn’t Me!
On Monday, we let you know about Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson’s borderline inappropriate tweet regarding the Kardashians. Lawson realized that Reggie Bush, who was dating Kim Kardashian, won a Super Bowl with the Saints, and that Lamar Odom repeated as a champ with the Lakers while marrying Khloe Kardashian. Considering the publicity-seeking ways of the Kardashians, I didn’t see anything wrong with Lawson’s tweet (with the exception of the word “hit”). Apparently he did, unfortunately. As pointed out by Jimmy Traina at Hot Clicks, Lawson not only deleted his original tweet, he also claimed someone else produced the tweet. From Lawson’s twitter:
I gave Paul Pierce a pass for the “we’re going to sweep the Magic” tweet that he claims someone else made, but I’m not buying Lawson’s b.s. The “my twitter was hacked” excuse is as lame as the “my supplements were tainted” excuse for testing positive for PEDs. I’m guessing Lawson lost his phone at the same time his car got a flat tire. Don’t people realize that the more an excuse is used the less we believe it? Worst of all, if you’re going to be brazen with a tweet, don’t back down as soon as it gets some attention. That’s uber lame!
