Coach Mom, well, she's not really the coach, but...

    She yanks her stud son in front of one of the annual summer beauty pageants on hardwood.

    She's got more cajones than the coach.

    He's the No. 6 prospect in the nation.

    He can write his own ticket regardless of what the AAU coach says and especially regardless of what his mom says.

    If I were him, I'd say, "get your fat ass back in the stands, bitch."

    And if mommie didn't like it, she gets cut out of the goodie gravy train.

    But mom still cooks his meals, so when they got home, I bet she could have beaten his ass with a willow branch.

    If he's the No. 6 prospect in the nation, I suspect he's got enough money to buy a fish sammitch at Mickey D's if he feels like it.

    And if he's the No. 6 prospect in the nation, he ain't getting beaten up by any 35-year-old fat woman, either.

    I'm betting this 35-year-old fat mom carries a shitload of authority in her son's life if she succeeded in what she did.

    It has to get real old really fast needing to show up for stuff like this, just to be seen in the school colors by a prospective recruit who you can't even talk to.

    This is AAU basketball in a nutshell.

    Before I read the link, I thought the kid got in a fight or mouthed off to a ref or something and Mom yanked him off the court to teach him a little respect. But noooooo - he made two "errors" in a row. Good Lord. She's as batshit crazy as the softball daddies.

    Undoubtedly.

    Out of curiosity, why was it necessary to mention that she was fat?

    Wow. I think your own mother needs to backhand you across the yap for that incredibly ignorant post.

    The kid took to Twitter late last night to explain that he had signalled that he wanted to come out. Which doesn't explain his mom's involvement at all, but does suggest that somebody in his camp know he has a PR problem.
