ESPN’s very own Brett Okamoto calls into this week’s episode.
The trio share their thoughts on Dana White’s $1 million birthday party for his 16-year-old son, only to find out Okamoto knows very little about today’s hip hop.
Brett Okamoto: “I would say sure, I don’t see anything wrong with it. If you have the means and you want to give your kid those types of experiences. I am personally not the type of person who would sit around and say ‘you shouldn’t do that’ or ‘that’s wrong.’”
Brett Okamoto: “There are a lot of rich kids who don’t have perspective on what’s going on around the world. Quite frankly, I didn’t either until I grew up. It’s tough because you’re talking relative to ‘this kid was born into this family,’ it’s hard to consolidate it into one conversation about a kid having a lavish birthday party.”
Brett Okamoto: “The one thing I think about parenting, not being a parent myself, is that there is no perfect way to do it. What I would say is showering your children with life experiences is a positive. Part of life experiences is working for you and earning things yourself and finding out that life isn’t always easy. So as long as Dana White is hopefully doing that for his kids – or any other rich parent – as long as they’re doing that in addition to pampering them a little bit, I see nothing wrong with that.”
Brett Okamoto: “I don’t want to embarrass myself, but I don’t know any of those performers. I’ve heard of Everlast, but the other ones mean nothing to me. The car itself, I also have to be honest with myself on this one, personally it’s not for me. It’s not my taste. So to answer your question, I think I would want the big blowout bash. I would want the night at Drai’s with all my friends.”
