Dr Disrespect has revealed that he turned down the chance to play in the NBA All-Star Game and his explanation for doing so is the most Doc thing imaginable.
The All-Star game brings together some of the top names in the NBA to play in a friendly basketball match as part of the NBA All-Star weekend. On top of that, they have the NBA All-Star Celebrity game, which pretty much does what it says on the tin.
It’s a bit of fun and will often see A-List celebrities make fools of themselves – or, otherwise, prove their skills – alongside some of the biggest names in basketball. However, despite his evident physical prowess, it appears popular streamer Dr Disrespect will not be on the teamsheet this year.
The NBA revealed the two teams that will be taking part on February 5, with rappers Common and Chance the Rapper leading each team, backed up by the likes of Bad Bunny, Quavo, Lil Rel Howery and Alex Moffat.
Though no other streamers are on the teamsheets for either team, Dr Disrespect made a joke of the fact that he was asked to play, saying that he “said no” seemingly due to it being unfair on the opposition.
“Kidding me,” he asked. “Who’s gonna guard me? Ronnie? Hahahaha.” Ronnie refers to Ronnie 2K, a community manager that works on the NBA 2K games.
They asked me if I wanted to play and I said no.
Kiddin me, who’s gonna guard me? Ronnie?

Of course, the Doc makes a good point. Standing at 6ft8, he is a behemoth of a man that would be impossible to guard if you’re not a similar size and stature – or a professional basketball player.
With his key traits of violence, speed and momentum, there’s no doubt the Two-Time would be a formidable opponent to come up against, somewhat terrifying as he looms over you like the giant he is.
Whether he was actually asked to play in the game is unclear – it’s not entirely impossible, and top streamers are being recognized by the mainstream now more than ever. But, this is the Doc we’re talking about, and he might not have been asked at all.
