To Fred Davis, teammate Robert Griffin III can only be described in biblical terms.
When he told CSN Washington that RGIII is Black Jesus he was meaning to compliment his teammate in the highest terms.
But he also made people of a certain age remember that there is only one Black Jesus. He also spent time in D.C. but Earl Monroe played for the Washington Bullets.
As Jake Shuttlesworth (Denzel Washington) explains to his son Jesus (Ray Allen) how he got his name, you get a glimpse of why Monroe was described in such glowing terms.
We won’t argue Griffin vs. Monroe. We’ll agree they both got game.
