Dennis Scott is involved in a controversy after an incident at a Virginia summer camp in which he ranted and played explicit rap music in front of a crowd of bewildered children.
With arms flailing and rap music containing explicit lyrics blaring from the trunk of his nearby sports utility vehicle, Scott rambled to a group of bewildered summer campers at his 3-D Basketball Camp at Park View High School in Sterling, Va., over the weekend.
He told them: “Don’t ask me for my autograph, because 28 years ago, I was broke. You ask for my autograph now because I’ve got millions of dollars. Do not ask me for my autograph. Ask me to explain the rage that exists inside of me.”
It was reported the camp closed, the kids - ages 9-17 - were sent home and refunds will be made at $200 per person.
During his diatribe, Scott insisted that he no longer wanted to be referred to as “3-D” and directed some thinly veiled comments at the Magic by saying: “So if I don’t get what I think I deserve in my heart, I am going to literally retire from basketball and run this camp every day.”
He made a passing reference to the media, blasting them for past criticisms of him and for their accusations that he is using drugs.
An independent television station captured the incident on film before being asked to leave by camp organizers.
