Comedian Brittany Schmitt recently made waves with a series about her ex, a former NBA player who joined Jehovah’s Witnesses. Who was she talking about?
Comedian Brittany Schmitt posted her first full comedy show on YouTube in July, but her material has come under increasing scrutiny lately due to a passage about a former NBA player she shared. frequented. Schmitt recounted how the former NBA player contacted her after their breakup to tell her that he was now a Jehovah’s Witness and that she needed to repent.
The excerpt also includes several very NSWF trivia about their relationship (you can watch the full clip here).
Although she never names the player, the footage ends with a mention of her husband encouraging her to Google how many former NBA players are Jehovah’s Witnesses. According to Ms. Schmitt, there are only two, which defeats the purpose of maintaining the player’s anonymity by not naming him in the clip.
Which current and former NBA players are Jehovah’s Witnesses?
According to Google, three current and former NBA players are Jehovah’s Witnesses – Dewayne Dedmon (currently at the Miami Heat) and former Indiana Pacers teammates Danny Granger and Darren Collison. The only other identifying detail in his file (a fair complexion) seems to imply that Schmitt is talking about Granger. However, she also mentions a cousin named Keith and a basic Google search did not turn up a cousin named Keith for either Granger or Collison.
And who knows if all of this is actually true or if it’s just a somewhat wacky stand-up act?
