Does Rudy Fernandez Think He Is Ricky Henderson ?

Posted by Mike on November 12, 2008


Portland Trailblazers rookie, Rudy Fernandez who was a key member of the silver-medal winning Spanish Olympic basketball team, apparently has a fondness for talking about himself in third person. Fernandez shares his fondness with third-person speaking along with Rickey Henderson, and who could forget Jimmy ? Oh, and there’s that great Dikembe Mutombo story, were he walked into a party and said “Who wants to sex Mutombo” ? Fernandez told The Oregonian “Rudy is not everyday a shooter,” Fernandez said. “He’s defense. He’s passes. He’s assists.” Those words are directly from the lips of my new favorite Portland Trailblazer. David Stern should forget about instituting a dress code poicy, and instead force every player to talk in third-person.
