ETB’s NBA Poetry Corner, Featuring Minnesota Timberwolf Rashad McCants

February 28, 2008

Who Wants to Sex Rashad McCants?Minnesota Timberwolves young gun Rashad McCants has a spiffy new website, where he shares all sorts of things from his love of tattoos to details on his soon-to-be released clothing line, YBG (Young, Black and Gifted). There’s a lot of fun stuff on the site, including gratuitous shots of Mr. McCants half naked and either flashing his ink or giving us bedroom eyes on every page.

However, it’s the Writings From Rashad section that really caught my eye. Turns out the young man is a poet of no small talent. We at ETB always feel an obligation to share the more artistic side of NBA athletes, so here’s a taste of what you’ll find on his site – and hopefully this won’t be Mr. McCants last appearance in the ETB Poety Corner. Anyone under the age of 18 should stop reading at this point, it gets a little… graphic.


Love Thief

By Rashad McCants

I’m not a Grinch that stole love but I’m a thief with no love.
Eyes bright like city lights when she enters my life.
Every morning after yawning we make love to sweet nothing and birds chirping.
My tongue lurking for that spot that says stop and makes ya mouth drop.
I’d spit you out just to taste you again.
And again I’d have this dream during the day where my eyes lay wide shut.
Love has culture shocked my brain and blindsided my heart,
my skin crawls with butterfly touches that tickle my smile.
Her eyes drown me in her deep blue sea. I openly swim naked in her fresh water.
So natural she smells like rain….

(Shout out to Ball Don’t Lie for the find)

You’re a serious fan, Dawn. I’m not sure where Mr. McCants’ poetry career is at these days, but here’s the link to his official website. From there, you might be able to contact him or one of his representatives about where you might be able to find more of his poetry: http://www.rashadmccants1.com/.
