Do you remember with the Detriot Lions went 0-16 in 2008?
Before that season started the Lions were hoping to improve on a 7-9 record for the past season. Coming off their best season since 2000, and the team showed promise as they went undefeated during the preseason.
Unfortunately, for the Lions they suffered one of the worst seasons in NFL history, finishing 0–16 and joining the expansion 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as the only other team to complete a full season with no win since the AFL-NFL merger.
They also became the first team since the league expanded its regular season schedule to 16 games.
The Lions conceded 517 points over the season, falling to less than 16 points from the 1981 Colts record of 533 points allowed. The Lions’ 32.31 points per game allowed on defense is the third worst of any NFL team since the 1960s, third only to the 1966 Giants (35.79 PPG) and the Colts referred to above 1981 (33.31 PPG), according to a 2016 article written by Neil Greenberg of The Washington Post.
Well, according to former NBA player turned NBA analyst, Ryan Hollins it wasn’t a good year for former NBA Slam Dunk Champion, Jason Richardson.
“You know Jason Richardson owes me $4,000 because of that right?” said Hollins to Brendan Haywood Monday on Instagram Live.
“J Rich ain’t paying you,” said Haywood.
“Darn right! The funny thing I wanted my guy’s fade because if I wouldn’t have beat him, he would have been asking for that money,” said Hollins. “If they would have won a game, he would have been asking for that money. Talking about rook where that money at you gotta pay me. I’m salty about that, he got me.”
Jason Richardson and Hollins were teammates with the Charlotte Bobcats at the time from 2007-2009.
According to Haywood, Hollins is also not having a good year in their fantasy league this season either.
“You are the worst player in fantasy football. You are getting smacked yet again, you are 0-11 in our fantasy football league. You play me next week, so that means you are about to be 0-12.”
Make sure to check out both Hollins and Haywood out weekdays on IG live and 7 pm EST.
