DeShawn Stevenson calls out ex-Nets teammate for talking crap

DeShawn Stevenson went on a Twitter rant Tuesday where he called out an ex-Nets teammate for talking some crap.

It all started with the following profanity-laced tweet from Stevenson, who was traded from the Nets to the Atlanta Hawks in the Joe Johnson deal:

DeShawn Stevenson charges $4.50 for use of his ATM

DeShawn Stevenson, who was already known for having an Abraham Lincoln neck tattoo, became an even bigger urban legend when he shared a picture on Instagram that revealed he has an ATM in his kitchen. The Nets guard confirmed to TMZ that he does in fact have an ATM in his home, and he explained all the fees and charges associated with it.

TMZ says Stevenson paid $3,500 for the ATM and that he charges $4.50 per usage. He says the machine holds $20,000 and he refills it 4-6 times a year.

Even though DeShawn’s in-home ATM is the first many of us have seen, he reportedly got the idea from Rob Dyrdek of the MTV reality show “Rob & Big.” That fact doesn’t at all take away from the awesomeness of it.

But how much money are DeShawn and his friends squandering if they’re going through $100,000 in cash per year? Are you kidding? Don’t they have plastic?

Yes, that is DeShawn Stevenson posting for a picture from what appears to be the kitchen inside his home. While he is impressed with his “swag out” style, what captured nearly everyone’s attention was what appeared to be an ATM off to the side. If that really is an ATM in Stevenson’s kitchen, then Floyd Mayweather is jealous he didn’t think of it first.

DeShawn Stevenson Calls Heat Classless, Wears How’s my Dirk Taste Shirt

DeShawn Stevenson has a big mouth and doesn’t back down from anyone. He called LeBron James overrated several years ago and that led to a war of words that involved rappers Soulja Boy and Jay-Z. Now that he’s won a title, Stevenson feels like he can boast.

“It makes me feel good, man, to beat him, to beat that Miami team,” Stevenson said after winning the title. “The way they act, the way they treated Dirk [Nowitzki], all the things that they said were very classless. To win on the court the way we did it, it was wonderful.”

There’s little doubt Stevenson earned the right to speak with his play. He made 57% of his threes and was a big reason the Mavericks won the title. But does anyone else find it ironic that Stevenson calls the Heat classless on one hand, and then goes out and wears this insulting shirt:

Heat and Mavericks Get into Mini-Fight During Second Quarter (Video)

The Heat and Mavericks had some bad blood develop during their NBA Finals series. There was no real rivalry between the teams, but there were some individuals who had previous beef (see LeBron James and DeShawn Stevenson). While nobody will confuse this series for the real hatred going on in the Stanley Cup Final, they did get into a mini-fight during the second quarter. That there was a debate about players possibly being suspended if there were a Game 7 is laughable. That was such a non-incident, and honestly, would you expect everyone to hold hands and hug at midcourt? Both Mario Chalmers and Udonis Haslem got technical fouls as did DeShawn Stevenson. The Mavs ended up with an extra free throw as a result, but if you’re going to T-up Chalmers there, you should do the same thing to Tyson Chandler for putting his hands on Haslem.

DeShawn Stevenson: Mavericks Receiving Help from Other Teams to Beat Miami Heat

Once you get into the playoffs in sports and most teams’ seasons have come to an end, tips begin being exchanged. Coaches and players have friends around the League from previous jobs and stops in their careers and they like to help each other out. That’s nothing new — just look at the NFL playoffs and you’ll hear about coaches getting tips from their friends in the business on how to beat an opponent. This has been no different for the Dallas Mavericks, who say they’ve received help from opposing players and coaches regarding their series with Miami. But are these people trying to help their friends, or motivated by a desire to see the Heat lose? Mavs guard DeShawn Stevenson believes it’s more of the latter.

The guys that I deal with, they say a lot of things about how to guard and the way to play them. And coach (Rick Carlisle) said a lot of coaches called him about how to play the Miami Heat. I just think a lot of people want to see us win this thing.”

As I previously noted, teams still in the playoffs receiving tips on how to beat their opponents is nothing new, but what makes this somewhat different is Stevenson’s belief that it stems from people wanting to see the Heat lose. Again, that’s nothing new either — we know the Heat are hated. If they weren’t, their games wouldn’t get such high ratings from all the people who want to see them lose. If the Mavericks can pull off one more victory, many people will get their wish of wanting to see the Heat fail.

DeShawn Stevenson Is Only a Step Away from Being Mike Tyson

Or if you judge by the amount of ink on his face, he’s two steps ahead. What went from being a trend in sports has become somewhat of an epidemeic — tattoos are popping up on nearly every player in every sport and guys are running out of ways to out-do each other. Not DeShawn Stevenson, however. The Wizards guard elected to remain a step ahead of the curve getting some fresh ink in the offseason, Stephon Marbury style. Check out these pics of DeShawn Stevenson’s new face tattoos. He’s got three on his face and a giant one on the front of his neck. Thanks to Wizards Insider for the heads up on the story and the Washington Times for all the pictures.

It really looks like he and Gilbert Arenas are having a competition — Stevenson gets Abe Lincoln, Arenas gets the Black Mount Rushmore on his leg. I’ll just leave it as saying it’s not my cup of tea. Also, there’s been debate about Stevenson’s Pirates “P” logo which is considered to be a gang sign. Nice DeShawn. The other tats are his son’s name (Londyn), and a Frankenstein looking crack on his forward because he doesn’t crack. Yikes.
