For those of you who haven’t been following along in 2020, legendary NBA head coach George Karl and Clay have been exchanging pleasantries in the COVID trenches over the last few months. Fighting out of the NBA blue checkmark corner is Karl, who launched an attack on Clay the very first day the Pfizer vaccine started being blasted into arms.
“It feels like Clay Travis should be the last person in the US to get the COVID vaccine,” the 69-year-old former NBA Coach of the Year (2013) tweeted in an attempt to lay down a roasting patch on the COVID highway.
The two combatants had a typical COVID 2020 battle until legendary SportsCenter anchor Keith Olbermann came out of nowhere and jumped into the ring to get a piece of Clay. That’s right, a straight-up double teaming from the blue checkmark coronabro brigade.
Olbermann taking shots. Karl firing off tweets. Clay swatting off all that 1994 could throw at him. Olbermann, who is a member of the Communist Party, according to his Wiki page, hit Clay with a “you’re not young” attack, lecturing Clay that he’s in deep danger from COVID.
All the while Clay kept battling on, still tweeting after midnight in Nashville where he had to get up to do morning radio. What a battle it was. This figures to be the first of many, as the blue checkmarks on the left try to figure out how they will proceed once people get vaccinated. MSNBC’s doctor is already saying vaccinated people still shouldn’t travel. It never ends with these coronabros.
The best thing about this Tweet is you thinking it was an insult. Okay, fine, I’ll let 330 million other people go first. And be perfectly fine waiting. Which is what all young and healthy people should do.
I’m fine with that coach. Because as a young and heathy person I’m more likely to die driving to and from work than to die from covid. https://t.co/quCRAcVNPp
If I could go back to 1994 & tell myself one day Sonics coach George and Keith Olbermann, the guy you watch on SportsCenter, are going to be obsessed with every word you utter, I would have been so excited. But now I just feel bad for them. Two delusional has beens. Sad. https://t.co/EvNkoW6kfv
He seems to be giving two old guys a lot of attention doesn’t he @KeithOlbermann ?
