You would think that everybody knows longtime sportscaster Marv Albert right? Wrong! Apparently, not the dim witted body guards in rapper 50 Cents camp who started an unnecessary fight with him.
Albert and 50 were both guests on last nights (Nov. 18) “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show. When the famed commentator arrived with his ONE person entourage and as they made their way back to the dressing rooms, they were assaulted by 50’s henchmen and were cursed out from here to eternity.
According to the article ran in today’s LA Times, Albert had no idea that this would happen. He has had no previous run-ins with the New York rapper or anyone 50 is affiliated with.
The ding-bat bodyguards hadn’t a clue as to who Albert was, even after a guard for the show shouted, “It’s Marv Albert,”
In the end, Albert was ok, but said he was confused as to what happened. “Did you see that?” he asked. “I thought they were kidding, but then I realized they weren’t.”
Marv Albert is a veteran NBA announcer for TNT as well as NBC. He was in town for the Lakers-Chicago Bulls game on Thursday (November 19).
