El Hombre Loco

The Brooklyn Nets made their move. They gave up picks, riff raff and flim-flam becoming instant, draft-night Championship contenders (15/1).

They not only stole the face of the Boston Celtics (Paul Pierce) they also stole: El Hombre Loco.

In prison there is structure. A hierarchy. Order.

There is the warden, guards, and prisoners.

Prisoners segregate into racial groups:  Latinos, Blacks, Whites, and Asians.

And then there’s the crazy man:  El Hombre Loco.

Heavyweight Champ Sonny Liston, the baddest man on the planet, learned this during his time at the Missouri State Penitentiary.

He feared no man, prisoner or guard, except for the crazy man.

Cassius Clay was Sonny Liston’s crazy man.

The crazy man is unpredictable. He talks to himself, pounds his chest, throws his feces, and attacks the biggest, baddest dude in the joint with a spoon to the eyeballs.

He does knuckle push-ups.

In Stir Crazy, Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder get tossed in the can.

Pryor instructs Wilder that “we bad” and Wilder, unable to pull it off, settles for the crazy man persona.

Kevin Garnett is LeBron James’ El Hombre Loco.

Garnett makes LeBron twitch and tweak.

He makes LeBron uncomfortable.

El Hombre Loco is why the Brooklyn Nets will upset the Heat for the Eastern Conference.

The Brooklyn Nets are our new, favorite team.
