Fart sniffing Rovell

On any given day, you can follow @NotDarrenRovell for the best in retweeted insults that are being hurled at ESPN’s go-to sports business know-it-all Darren Rovell, but it’s only news when those snappy comebacks and blunt profanity come directly from professional sports franchises. In this case, Rovell showcased his usual snootier-than-thou attitude to his 414,000+ followers in regard to a promotional graphic that the Atlanta Hawks released in honor of Kyle Korver, who is one long distance shot away from breaking the NBA record for consecutive games with a three.

As the graphic states, Dana Barros’s record of 89 games in a row with at least one three-pointer has stood for 17 years. That’s pretty remarkable, just not to Rovell. Fortunately, the Hawks know how to stick up for themselves.

Let me see if I have an appropriate GIF response for that… wait, yes, here it is:


Oh come on, we can do better than that, can’t we? This is Darren Rovell, a man who belittled and insulted Playboy Playmates after they didn’t worship him at a Super Bowl Party, that we’re talking about…

Yeah, there it is. But at least Rovell doubles down on his condescending shittery like no one else.
