Twitter is a wonderful thing. It's the only place I can think of where we can witness former NBA player Pooh Jeter (and brother of Olympic sprinter Carmela Jeter) getting a truth bomb of epic proportions dropped on him by former NBA player Keith Closs.
Last night, Jeter went on Twitter and pondered that which so many of us have before:
I can't believe they still haven't found a cure for cancer. Unbelievable!!!— Pooh Jeter (@PoohJeter) January 4, 2013
That's when Closs came in, armed with the realest knowledge:
@poohjeter There IS a cure. Our gov just won't give it to us cuz it'll take away from their other funding.— keith closs (@BossCloss33) January 4, 2013
Jeter was appalled:
And Closs just kept coming with the real talk:
@poohjeter Bro, they have cures to most things, but ain't comin off em. Wifey's a scientist. It disgust's her. Our gov ain't shit!— keith closs (@BossCloss33) January 4, 2013
@poohjeter why you think Kobe went to Germany for his knee? Other countries curin folk while ours needlessly die as guinea pigs. Tragic.— keith closs (@BossCloss33) January 4, 2013
@poohjeter If you home, DM your number. I'll call tomorrow so wifey can tell you herself. You'll be surprised as hell bro.— keith closs (@BossCloss33) January 4, 2013
Boom. We hope that Jeter got to speak to Closs's wife, thus freeing his mind.
