Poor Jason Kapono. He probably thought he would living in the land of milk and honey after being All-PAC-10 all four years. At the end of a 10-12 year career, three NBA titles and two MVPs, his headband will be bronzed and put in the hall of fame next to Michael Jordan’s baseball jersey and Scottie Pippen’s plane…oh wait, that got repossesed.
Kapono angered the gods by beating Agent Zero in this year’s 3-point contest. He must have thought he’d hit all the parties afterwards with all the video hoes and make it rain with Pacman but apparently he used up all his luck on the court. Sports by Brooks noted Kapono moaning to the Chicago Tribune.
“No one invites me to any parties. Even [Alonzo Mourning]. He’s having a billiards thing in Vegas, and I never got anything. He doesn’t even know who I am, and I’m on his team.”
That’s what you get for losing the headband, donkey. He should consider himself lucky. Zo might need another kidney and I’m sure Pat Riley would have no problem putting him down Nip/Tuck style if he was a match regardless of his improved play.
Let the words of Homer Simpson be a lesson to Kapono, Darko and all other human victory cigars fighting the hopeless fight. “You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is never try.”
