Larry Johnson: Still Social Networking Impaired

Cleat prints on the chests? Are we sure Larry wasn’t just recounting the club last night?

Amid Bad Blood, Chiefs Release Larry Johnson

Larry Johnson didn’t want to be there. His coach, Todd Haley, didn’t want him to be there. The fans didn’t want him to be there. The ladies definitely didn’t want him to be there. And thus, the next course of action couldn’t have been clearer: According to PRO FOOTBALL TALK, Johnson has been released from the Kansas City Chiefs.

Larry Johnson $300,000 watch
(That $300,000 watch might be getting pawned pretty soon.)

This likely comes as great news to the fans; as mentioned above, their vitriol for the outspoken halfback led them to create the most devastating of weapons, an INTERNET PETITION, to call for Johnson’s ouster or any other measure to keep Johnson from claiming the franchise rushing title. Even though the 80 yards Johnson needed would have taken him at least 3 games (because the Chiefs’ rushing game sucks out loud, you see), the fans’ wish has been granted.

KC Fans Get Petitiony In Protest Of Larry Johnson

Our boy Larry Johnson is back in the news, because when you start calling people “fags” left and right in the middle of the worst season by a starting running back in NFL history, well, you get to be in the news.

Larry Johnson $300,000 watch
(Nice fashion sense. Just sayin’. Pause.)

Even as LJ slogs his way through the season & starts fights with everything in sight, objects animate and otherwise, he’s still only 80 yards away from overtaking Priest Holmes for the Chiefs’ all-time rushing record. Chiefs fans have noticed this, of course, and the last thing they want to see if their hallowed franchise’s record books tainted by a guy with such a cloud of negativity following him.

Solution? Empty gestures! Sign an online petition!

LJ’s Agent Can’t Believe Gay Slurs Are Offensive

The Kansas City Chiefs’ Larry Johnson is enjoying an unpaid vacation right now in light of recent statements that were seemingly designed with the specific intent to anger everybody in the team’s organization. Because hey, if you’re mired in the worst season by a starting running back in NFL history, why not alienate everybody in the process?

Larry Johnson

Johnson’s agent, however, chose an unusually peculiar tack in his client’s defense. After Johnson started calling disagreeable Chiefs fans “fags” - multiple times - and earning a suspension for his efforts, agent Peter Schafer responded in the most reasonable way imaginable. Just kidding, he expressed shock and amazement that you couldn’t call people “fags.”

More Fun Homophobic Slurs With Larry Johnson

It’s not often that someone defends himself on charges of using a gay epithet by slinging yet another gay epithet. But this is Larry Johnson we’re talking about, and LJ don’t perform for the amusement of The Man. He’s also four kinds of insane.

Larry Johnson

GLADD and OUTSPORTS.COM have both lined up against Johnson this afternoon after word got out that he used another derogatory word for gays while shooing reporters out of the locker room after practice today. Reporters were trying to ask him about an angry Twitter exchange last night in which he called a fan a “fag,” and “Christopher Street boy.” Johnson said he wouldn’t talk about it … and added one unfortunate phrase.

Larry Johnson Rips Coach, Gays In Twitter Tirade

So the Chiefs are reeling at 1-6 after a right-painful, 37-7 thrashing by the Chargers, leaving the Arrowhead faithful scratching their heads and wondering where it all went wrong. But thankfully we have the level-headed presence of Larry Johnson to calm everyone down and prevent wholesale panic.

Oh wait, no. As you can see, Johnson (”ToonIcon” on your Twitter scorecard) was busy on Twitter last night, telling the world that his dad is a great football coach with legitimate credentials, while the Chiefs coach, Todd Haley, attended college on a golf scholarship. One of his tweets: “My father played for the coach on “Remember the Titans.” Our coach played golf. My father played for redskins briefley. Our coach. Nuthn.”

And as if calling out your coach on Twitter wasn’t bad enough, how about some homophobic epithets thrown at Chiefs fans? It was a real party in LJ’s Twitterverse. Yep.

LJ Buying Big Bottles To Get Ladies Liquored Up

Considering past events, you would think women might be a little more cautious socializing with Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson. Then again, it’s hard to be snooty when someone buys you a ginormous bottle of champagne.

Larry Johnson Milan Q

LJ was apparently in Las Vegas last weekend and came across a partying posse of lively ladies headed up by someone by the name of Milan Q. She appears to be some sort of aspiring model, and was kind enough to Twitter all about their misadventures while tossing up a few fun photos to boot. Guess what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas.

Speed Read: LeBron’s Turn To Shred The Knicks

You have to give Mike D’Antoni credit for trying something innovative, even if it didn’t work out. For the second straight game, the New York Knicks rolled out their “Box and Zero” defense, which essentially challenges the other team’s best player to beat them by refusing to cover him under any circumstances. But just like against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers on Monday night, somehow it didn’t work out against the Cavaliers either.

LeBron James vs Knicks

Actually, I’m not sure what defense D’Antoni had his team running the last two games, but “none” comes to mind: a game after giving up 61 points to Bryant, the Knicks did the impossible: made another superstar have an even more incredible performance, as LeBron James scored 52 points in the Cavaliers’ 107-102 victory and became the first NBA player since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1975 to score 50+ points as part of a triple-double.

LeBron James vs Knicks

James also joined Michael Jordan as the only players to have multiple 50 points games in the new Madison Square Garden. Any time you’re mentioned in the same breath as Kareem and Jordan, you are doing something right. And did I mention that this was the tail end of a back-to-back? And that the Cavaliers were without three of their players due to injury and illness?

And in case you’re wondering, it doesn’t get any easier for the Knicks. Their next opponent to come into the Garden? The Boston Celtics on Friday night. I can’t imagine what Kevin Garnett could possibly do to upstage Kobe and LeBron - perhaps pick Nate Robinson up and slam him through the basket while clutching the ball?

Raiders running back Justin Fargas wasn’t breaking any records last night, unless it was “Stupidest Appearance in a Hip-Hop Video.” Because if you are an NFL player, and you know the league is on the warpath about its image and substance abuse, I would think that appearing in a video with someone called “Yukman” as he smokes a blunt that would make Cheech & Chong quiver in their tie-dyes isn’t such a great idea.

But PRO FOOTBALL TALK says that’s exactly what Fargas did. And honestly, are we shocked by this? Not that an NFL player would be so brazen about assoicating with potheads, but that it would be Fargas. I mean, his dad was Huggy Bear, for crying out loud.  Just look at his dad:

Antonio Fargas

Being shocked that his son is involved with marijuana is like being shocked that one of Bob Marley’s kids has a taste for the ganja. The video is up at WORLD STAR HIP HOP: go grab some Fritos and see it yourself.

While you pick the seeds out of your buds, here’s some more sports wackness from last night:

What was the single greatest performance at the new Madison Square Garden?
