View Full Version : Breaking News: DeShawn Stevenson Wins Beard Bet

07-29-2008, 04:25 PM
DeShawn Stevenson is a stubborn man. He made it clear to me many times that there was not a realistic scenario in which he would lose his much-discussed beard bet with Drew Gooden. I fully expected both men to eventually meet their maker while rocking a Methuselah.

Well, I expected wrong. Drew Gooden may be a fine NBA basketball player, but he evidently lacks DeShawn's untrimmable will to win. From the profile of DeShawn in this month's issue of SLAM:

Beyond the material stuff, No. 2 also gets love on the streets. Like a Capitol Hill politician, the Washington guard gives dap on the streets and autographs hats at restaurants. Maybe folks recognize the facial hair. ("By the way, I won the beard contest with Drew Gooden. He cuts his. I need my money, too, Drew!")

And then, boom, that's it, the story moves on. In one of the most stunning journalistic lapses since Barry Svrluga neglected to take photos of Nick Johnson's Lightning Bolt, the SLAM writer evidently forgot to ask DeShawn what becomes of his facial hair now; specifically, which charity will benefit when he ends up auctioning off the bag of trimmings some night at Love. But that's ok, because SLAM dropped several other soul patches worth of knowledge.

Drew Gooden's beard was awful.

I like Drew, but damn everytime I see him I say to myself, "What the ****?"

Yes, that's right, our very own DeShawn has made what we're calling an "undisclosed wager" with the formerly ducktailed Cavs forward Gooden, who began growing his own beard over the summer. Both guys live in Orlando, and they saw each other socially. Gooden had a beard, Stevenson made a comment, and so Gooden challenged him to grow facial hair of his own.
