    Know many hate Clay Travis, but he tweeted this screenshot of LBJ’s attorney’s defense. It’s exactly what Alabama fans said.

    Temerity is a word that should get thrown around a lot more than it does.

    Who is this James LeBraun you speak of?

    Canadian born hockey player? Bayou boat captain?

    Me too.

    But this jerk has no clue how many lawyers would love to give him the attention he craves and do it pro bono. He is realizing his star is fading and he will NEVER be as great as MJ which has turned him into one of the biggest attention whores in the celebrity world. I truly hope he gets cut down to where he belongs on this one.
