Sanders receives some bad ink

Back in May, Kevin Durant


a photo of a large new tattoo that appeared to contain a

misspelled word.

Fortunately for the three-time scoring champion, the misspelling

turned out to just be an illusion, a fact Durant clarified in a

subsequent post showing the word — “mature,” in

this case — spelled correctly.

I remind you of this story because Larry Sanders will have no

such redemptive moment after he

took to Instagram

Sunday to show off his new ink — which featured the word

“receive” unquestionably spelled incorrectly along his

left hand:

Now, we’re all guilty of a misspelling or a typo here and

there. The Hoover (Ala.) High School cheerleaders


us an amusing one earlier this week. But at least theirs

— and most such errors — didn’t end up

permanently penned on their bodies.

That said, it’s not all bad news for Sanders. Tattoo fail

or not, he

href="">signed a

four-year, $44 million extension with the Milwaukee Bucks on

Friday. Not bad for a guy who never fully grasped “I before

E, except after C.”
