While browsing the Tumblrs, I came across the pic below and squealed in delight.
What we have here is Jesse Jackson playing basketball with the late great Marvin Gaye. And I’m living!!! For so many reasons.
First of all, we MUST talk about Jesse’s afro. Mr. Jackson’s afro looks so damb legit. Like he found out the secret to healthy natural hair before the rest of us did. It’s all voluminous and stuff. Even with the headband on it, I can tell this ‘fro commands respect. Looking all plush. Did he use shea butter and coconut oil? You gotta pay #amish to that coiffure of his. Young Jesse GOT IT.
And then, let’s talk about their shorts. These two macho men got on daisy dukes to hoop. It was the 70s to this was the norm. But it still doesn’t make it less hilarious. Why were their shorts so little? Were the afraid their thighs would get too hot? Look at Marvin’s shorts? Lawd, I’m afraid one wrong move gon end up with in two (or three) balls being visible on the court instead of one. Just tiny. They were hooping in boxer briefs, basically. HA!
But, I must admit. Those shorts show off some pretty great gams on these fellas. Look at Marvin Gaye’s thighs. Perfectly hairless and smooth. Some of us could only wish! After a wax. And Jesse got them strong calves. I’m here for it ALL.
Good times. But seriously. This picture is about 5 kinds of awesome. I love it.
Whatcha’ll think of this pic? Also, I wonder who won this game.
