There’s nothing the general establishment despises more than a bandwagon fan, and in this day and age — call it a “Post-Decision” age — with players switching teams more than ever before, this is more relevant than ever before. If your team is struggling, you better stick with them, if only so you can flaunt your colors once the team eventually rebounds to become a powerhouse again. But if you’re one of those cats constantly changing your loyalty, or maybe even following one stud player rather than a team, you get hated on.
Never mind the fact that there are people out there — like yours truly — who have moved around so much that we can’t maintain allegiance to one team, in this age it’s all about reppin’ for your city. That’s where Justin Timberlake comes in.
JT is both a part-owner of the Grizzlies and a homegrown talent for Memphis, so the last thing you probably want to do is question his loyalty. Yet that’s exactly what a random fan did on Twitter recently, outright calling the Memphis legend out as the basketball team has surged to the best record in the league.
The rest didn’t go too hot for the fan.
In this week’s Style Points, as always, it’s not about what you do but how you do it. JT responded with that Ether and besides him recently, we saw some incredible highlights from people like Le’Veon Bell, Jeff Green, and the stud himself, Anthony Davis. However, none of them can top JT.
