It sure does seem like a long time since Jason Whitlock gave that famous interview to The Big Lead. He really worked for ESPN that long? Oh, ask him about Mike Lupica and Scoop Jackson.

Personally, we tend to enjoy Whitlock's columns considerably more than we enjoy his radio business; during the book tour, he was filling in for Jim Rome, so we heard a lot of it. We also kind of love that he was so "disappointed" by Barack Obama's speech on race that he emailed Oprah about it. We find something cute and wonderful about that, and we're not sure why.

Mostly, we'd like to just let him enjoy this couch.

So: Do you like the Jason Whitlock? Do you not like the Jason Whitlock? Hit us.
