Popular streaming personality Herschel “Dr Disrespect” Beahm IV is more than just a streamer. At 6’8″, Dr Disrespect is also a talented basketball player with a 37″ vertical jump.
At least, that’s what Dr Disrespect claims. Not many have seen the Two-Time outside of his gaming chair while he streams. But it looks like Dr Disrespect is ready to prove his claims in an over-the-top basketball bet against OpTic Gaming’s CEO, Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez.
During a vlog, H3CZ revealed the big basketball wager to his squad. He told them that the Two-Time had bet him a whopping $10,000 that he could beat H3CZ in a game of basketball.
Clearly not scared of Dr Disrespect’s height or his impressive jumping claims, H3CZ said, “I don’t know who this guy thinks he is.” He noted that the “two-time blockbuster thing” got to Dr Disrespect’s head.
“No one in esports can beat me. Especially, exclusively, and I am literally meaning this, Dr Disrespect,” H3CZ exclaimed.
H3CZ didn’t say if he took on Dr Disrespect’s high-stakes bet. But there’s no denying that fans of the Two-Time would love to see this 1v1 basketball game take place. It would be interesting to see H3CZ try to keep up with Dr Disrespect’s longer legs. And maybe fans would finally get to see The Doc’s legendary leap.
Dr Disrespect might not be all talk (and money). The popular streamer played NCAA Division II basketball at California State Polytechnic University, where he graduated in 2005. By 2010, he was posting videos of himself playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
The Doc has been quoted discussing how he came up with his infamous streaming persona. According to Dr Disrespect, he created a character who plays multiplayer games and “considers themselves the most dominating gaming specimen.”
Dr Direspect became known as the Two-Time after he won two back-to-back Blockbuster Video Game World Championships. The real Doc actually did win two of those tournaments playing NBA Jam, so that claim is based in reality.
