The Brooklyn Nets season begins tonight, but we need to have a serious discussion. The fate of the world is on the line with this discussion, so you must keep reading.
Dennis Smith Jr., a former top-10 draft pick, signed with Brooklyn this summer after spending time with Dallas, New York, Detriot, Portland, and Charlotte, gave one of the most bizarrely awful food takes you’ll ever hear this week.
His take is so bad that New Yorkers, both Knicks and Nets fans, are uniting in how bad it is. New Yorkers are all foodies at heart, but it takes something incredibly rare for Knicks and Nets fans to unite.
Dennis Smith Jr. says a hot dog is not a sandwich but……….A TACO
Yes, you read that right. Smith Jr. does not think a hot dog is a sandwich, which I absolutely agree with, but he thinks a hot dog is a taco, a take that has never been uttered before.
Smith Jr. gave his opinion on SubwayTakes, and the reasoning behind his opinion is somehow even worse than the opinion itself.
"“I believe a hot dog is not a sandwich, but it is a taco”….”I mean, think about it. You had a soft taco before? Or a hard taco?…. You feel me? And then you got all the stuff in between, and you got the bread on the outside, and it just looked the same, so I figured that a hot dog is a taco.”"
First of all, Dennis, neither a hard taco shell nor a soft taco shell is bread. I guess you could argue a soft taco shell is a wrap, but that is still a far cry from a hot dog bun.
Does he also really think tacos and hot dogs look the same? What is the Nets guard looking at? Someone please take him outside the Barclays Center to the closet corner hot dog vendor.
Smith Jr. should play a big role as the Nets backup point guard this season and has more than enough talent to vastly outperform his expectations. Let’s hope his play this year is a lot better than his absurd food takes.
