“I apologize right now to John Wall,” Cowherd said.
“Nice!” Simmons replied. “You did it. Oh, I’m so happy.”
Sincere or not, the apology provides some closure for a story of obsession that began in November 2010, when Cowherd first ranted about Wall’s Dougie.
“Before the game started, he spent 34 seconds doing the Dougie,” Cowherd said then. “That tells me all I need to know about J-Wow. Then he opened his mouth later and confirmed it: not a sharp guy. All about him.”
In December of 2014, Cowherd said he thought that Wall had “grown up,” but he refused to retract anything he had said about him.
“If you’re looking for apologies, you’re fishing off the wrong pier,” Cowherd said.
