NBA player Marcus Smart claims "no one remembers the 2nd U.S. president" and John Adams may never recover from this
· · Sep 20, 2021 ·

Boston Celtics point guard Marcus Smart on Friday offered some sage wisdom for a fan looking to up his own basketball game: "Get strong...Take charges. Be a [great] teammate."

All great advice! But then things took a little turn for the weird:

Compete. Never be ok w losing. No one remembers the 2nd US President. Only the 1st.

Haauhhh what now? Nobody remembers the second U.S. president, i.e. John Adams?

(Just in case it's unclear, that's a GIF from the HBO miniseries John Adams, an epic biopic about the life of that guy nobody remembers, John Adams.)

People gave Smart some healthy good-natured grief over his complete and total facepalm, but Smart—who, true to form, was obviously not okay with losing this one—just went ahead and doubled down:

Total boss move. He's not wrong, either. He was still at it the next morning, too:

To be 100% fair, first place is better than second place! The guy is just dropping truth bombs left and right.

Spare a thought, meanwhile, for John Adams, who has been forgotten by everyone in the country, including the author of this post after he got done writing it.
