Get ESPN The F*ck Outta Here!

So, let me get straight to it, son. ESPN can eat a massive dick, son. I mean, they’re definitely showing the world their true colors, man. I guess, in their eyes, the First Amendment means nothing, fam. Like, free speech must be some imaginary concept, bruh. Shit, from the way things have played out, SportsCenter co-host Jemele Hill clearly isn’t entitled to voicing her opinion. All I know is, Hill needs to take her talents to somewhere she’ll be properly appreciated. All in all, ESPN is NOT the place, folks.

Now, for those who missed all of the fuckery, let me give a brief rundown. The nonsense started when Hill spoke out against Donald Trump on Twitter. She correctly called Trump a White Supremacist and blamed him for the rise of bigotry in this country. Listen, if anyone thinks she was off base, just remember Trump’s response to Charlottesville. Despite the fact that supremacists killed Heather Heyer, he still said that there were “fine people” on all sides. Look, if that ain’t sucking up to racists than I don’t know what is, son.

In any case, because of her statements, Hill became a political target. Trump’s entire administration tried to make her a punching bag in an effort to get her fired. Now, since ESPN is a bunch of bitches, they released a statement condemning Hill’s tweets. With that being said, she was effectively put on warning. However; since Hill is a real one, she refused to be silenced by the powers that be.

Moving on, here’s where the tomfoolery came to a head, man. So, Jerry Jones decided to be a typical White dude in power and threaten his Dallas Cowboys players. According to him, if any man kneels for the National Anthem, then they won’t play. Keep in mind, just the other week, this clowncake kneeled with the players before a game. Now, he’s trying to pull rank by putting pressure on his employees. Look, all I want to know is, when did Jerry Jones become a beacon of moral authority? Fam, ain’t that the same man that took these pictures? Ok, yeah, I thought so, bruh.

Anyway, in the wake of Jones’ hypocrisy, Hill suggested that people should boycott Cowboys advertisers. Frankly, that move would be a real way to affect the status quo. By and by, for her troubles, ESPN suspended Hill for two weeks for violating their social media policy. Basically, this was their way of shutting her up for speaking against their corporate interests. Listen, we all know how the game goes, son. Anytime a Black person speaks up, the people in control need to assert their dominance. Keeping it a buck, Hill became another victim of the need to maintain “order.”

In the end, ESPN is proving that they only want a certain type of Blackness. They want to exploit our swag but don’t give a fuck about our pain. Now, I know Hill worked tirelessly to succeed, but I hope she learned a valuable lesson here: these corporations want us to be caricatures. They want us to be docile servants who should be thankful for our positions. Ultimately, fuck ESPN and all other organizations who profit from our talents but remain silent about our anguish. LC out.

P.S. Michael Smith is a G for the way he’s standing up for his co-host. Salute, brother. That is all.

I’m Down With The New NBA All-Star Game

So, I won’t lie, son. When I first heard about the changes to the NBA All-Star Game, I was ready to hate, man. I mean, it’s the law of inertia, fam. People like me don’t like change. In any case, the more I thought about it, the more I got onboard, bruh. With that being said, I’m hyped to see this season’s game! The way I see it, the 2018 contest has the potential to either be legendary or tragic. Either way, I’ll be there, folks!

Now, for those who missed it, major changes were made to the ASG. Apparently, the entire concept of East versus West has been eradicated. Instead, two captains will be chosen and they get to pick anyone from the starters and reserves lists. Essentially, the NBA is about to have a big ass pickup game, son! All in all, how could this possibly be a bad thing, man? Imagine Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving on the same squad disrespecting everybody’s ankles. Imagine LeBron James and Kevin Durant on the same team throwing alleys to each other. Fam, this shit has the potential to be incredible, bruh!

In the end, I don’t even know what else to say, son. Look, I think the news speaks for itself, man. Now, of course, the outcome remains to be seen. Who knows, this could end up being a terrible idea, fam. However; I’m super interested to see who ends up playing together and how the game turns out. Ultimately, I’ll be watching, bruh. I’ll definitely be watching. LC out.

Don’t Forget What Colin Kaepernick Actually Kneeled For

So, let me get straight to the point, son. Colin Kaepernick‘s movement is starting to become convoluted, man. I mean, with all of the noise, debates and arguments, the original catalyst for kneeling is getting lost. With that being said, allow me to remind everyone what Kaepernick was protesting for. All in all, regardless of anyone else’s intentions, Kaepernick wanted to bring attention to racial injustice in America.

Now, before I continue, let me reiterate something I’ve stated before. Look, kneeling during the National Anthem has NOTHING to do with disrespecting the troops. Frankly, our brothers and sisters in the Armed Forces were never part of this conversation, fam. Real talk, the motive behind the protest was ALWAYS to bring attention to systemic racism, bigotry and police brutality. Listen, when we look at all of the Black victims of state-sanctioned murder, our anger shouldn’t be surprising, bruh.

Moving on, when detractors bring up the troops, they’re literally just trying to create a diversion. On the real, I have family members AND friends who have either previously served or currently serve in the military. By and by, their sacrifice has never been in question here. Keeping it a buck, anyone who is willing to put their lives on the line for their country should be celebrated. All I know is, nothing and no one can take that away from them, son.

All in all, kneeling for the anthem was never designed to disrespect them. Shit, if people cared for the troops as much as they say they do, then why don’t they pay more attention to the mental and physical issues of our veterans? In addition, why don’t more people pay attention to number of homeless veterans around the country? Honestly, folks are more interested in sound bites than real change.

In any case, when it comes to the anthem, the hypocrisy needs to stop, man. Listen, I’ve detailed all of this on my blog before. Fam, I’ve already spoken about Francis Scott Key, the writer of The Star-Spangled Banner. I’ve already talked about how he was a slave owner and an anti-abolitionist. I’ve already mentioned that there are more verses to the song that DIRECTLY reference slavery. Good Lord, bruh, I truly don’t understand why White people think Black people should embrace that fucking song. It was LITERALLY written by a man who wanted to deny us rights! Please, get the FUCK outta here!

Lastly, I’m calling bullshit on all of the NFL owners who’ve been kneeling with their players. Listen, am I supposed to believe that the same owners who wouldn’t give Kaepernick a job actually give a fuck about our rights? Hell, didn’t Dez Bryant previously say that Jerry Jones wasn’t with the shits? Now I’m supposed to believe he’s down for the cause? Bruh, how stupid do these billionaires think we are? Ultimately, all of these teams took a knee and locked arms as an affront to Donald Trump. This was NEVER done in support of equality. Meaning, they can take their bullshit gesture and shove it, fam!

In the end, I became more and more pissed as I wrote this article. Look, a protest that started with pure intentions has been grossly bastardized, son. All I can say is, I don’t want the spirit of Kaepernick’s sacrifice to get lost in the shuffle. Listen, that man risked it all to bring attention to the plight of Black and Brown people. All I know is, I don’t want politics and bipartisanship to dilute the message. Don’t fall for the okie doke, people. That is all. LC out.

Donald Trump Hates Sports

So, just in case anyone forgot, Donald Trump is a fucking joke, son. I mean, with all of the tomfoolery happening in our country, why does he consistently focus on the wrong things? Shit, Kim Jong-un is trying to nuke us all, but Trump would rather talk about the NFL. Healthcare is still being debated in Congress, but he’d rather take shots at Stephen Curry. Man, this dude has ZERO understanding of the nature of his office. Honestly, when will this man realize that his job isn’t a reality show? More importantly, will we all still be alive by the time he figures it out?

Now, for those who missed it, Trump has been on a tear recently. First, during a speech in Huntsville, Alabama, he called football players who don’t stand for the National Anthem “son[s] of bitch[es].” In addition, he demanded that these players be fired, regardless of the fact that they’re exercising their First Amendment rights. Next, he set his crosshairs on Curry and the Golden State Warriors. Since Curry expressed that he wasn’t interested in visiting the White House, Trump took it upon himself to “uninvite” the team. Needless to say, the Warriors organization didn’t give a flying fuck, man.

In any case, as expected, everyone with sense called Trump out for his idiocy. LeBron James went hamburger on him for even thinking that rescinding an invitation was a power move. Look, logic states that a person can’t uninvite someone who wasn’t even planning on going. Meaning, Trump is a clown for thinking that anyone cares about his little temper tantrum. Real talk, a speech isn’t going to make a team visit the White House and it isn’t going to stop players from protesting racial injustice.

Listen, the fact of the matter is, Colin Kaepernick started a movement, son. Now, the powers that be thought that getting rid of him would stop the momentum. However; as more players from different leagues get onboard, the fight just keeps getting stronger, man. Hell, just the other day, Bruce Maxwell became the first MLB player to kneel for the anthem. All in all, players are determining that they won’t be silenced by influence and intimidation. Also, more owners and organizations are starting to join the debate, people. The snowball effect is starting to occur.

In the end, maybe Trump should stick to presidential matters. I mean, it’s not like he’s even doing that well, fam. Frankly, he shouldn’t have time to comment on players because he should be focused on doing his job better, bruh. Ultimately, this is yet ANOTHER example of the clowncake that the Electoral College put in office. *Sigh* The fuckery just doesn’t stop, son. LC out.

Stop Tweeting, Kevin Durant

Ok, all jokes aside, where are Kevin Durant‘s friends, son? I mean, no one told him that his social media behavior has been corny as shit, man? Look, I know I’ve given him a hard time for his Golden State Warriors move, but I never thought he’d do something so lame, fam. All in all, KD just needs to accept the fact that most people don’t accept his decision. At this point, he’s an NBA champion now. Why does he still care what people think?

Now, for those who missed it, KD got caught doing some hoe shit last week. So, apparently, this dude has been using secret Twitter and Instagram accounts to argue with people hating on him. He got caught after accidentally posting a response from his REAL Twitter account. Look, in the aforementioned message, he spoke about himself in the third person, shitted on his former coach Billy Donovan AND threw shots at the entire Oklahoma City Thunder organization. In his eyes, it was just him and Russell Westbrook. To be fair, he wasn’t wrong about that part.

In any case, when he was confronted about his actions during a fireside chat at TechCrunch Disrupt, he owned up to his corniness. Now, before I continue, let me be clear about something. KD is EASILY one of the top 3 players in the game. In addition, I never faulted him for leaving OKC. Frankly, he’s only getting hate for going to a team that beat him. To make matters worse, he’s handled the situation TERRIBLY since switching teams. Look, this dude is a champion and a Finals MVP now. By and by, our opinions shouldn’t even matter to him. Keeping it a buck, people will never like his decision, fam. He just needs to focus on winning and move the fuck on, bruh.

In the end, @quiresultan on IG is not going to make us like Kevin Durant. So, he just needs to leave the secret accounts alone and go ball out. Ultimately, his third person defense ranks high on the all-time loser list, son. Shit, he’s winning now, which is what he says he’s always wanted. Nothing else should even matter, man. Just let it go, KD. LC out.

What Fight Was Adalaide Byrd Watching?

So, it finally happened, son. The fight between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Álvarez finally happened, man. Now, even though the fight wasn’t the absolute bloodbath that some of us predicted, it was still an entertaining bout, fam. In any case, the result could definitely be debated, bruh. Even though I thought a draw was the right call, I wasn’t mad at people who thought GGG won. With that being said, what fight was Adalaide Byrd watching?! I mean, she scored the match 118-110 for Canelo. On the real, that’s one of the most absurd rulings I’ve seen in a long time, folks.

Now, before I get to Byrd’s fuckery, let me tell everyone how I judged the fight. From my perspective, Canelo started out strong. Keeping it a buck, I gave him the first two rounds. GGG looked like he was trying to figure Canelo out, so he wasn’t attacking like he normally would. In addition, I also gave Canelo the last three rounds. By then, it looked like he was fighting with a sense of urgency. He was throwing more combinations and not running as much. During those moments, he looked like he actually wanted some static.

Anyway, besides those five rounds, I gave GGG damn near all of the rounds in the middle. So, basically, he either won six or seven of those rounds, depending on perspective. Frankly, he was just hunting Canelo around the ring and hitting him with the jab at will. Also, none of Canelo’s shots hurt him in the slightest. Shit, look at this clip, fam. He ate Canelo’s best shot and just kept on stalking, bruh. Listen, GGG is a fucking machine, son!

Moving on, let’s get back to Byrd, man. Now, in order for her to judge the fight 118-110, she had to believe that Canelo won 10 out of the 12 rounds. Man, get thee FUCK outta here! There is NO WAY in Hell that Canelo won 10 rounds! By the numbers, GGG landed more punches AND he was chasing Canelo around the ring. On top of that, Canelo didn’t throw enough combinations to really steal any of those rounds. All in all, he wasn’t that aggressive, son. Look, a fighter can’t run AND not throw enough punches, man! Real talk, Canelo didn’t do enough to decisively win that fight.

In the end, I’m glad that the Nevada Athletic Commission is benching Byrd. Look, she simply doesn’t need to judge another big fight, son. Ultimately, her score was a travesty, fam. By and by, it ruined an otherwise good night for boxing, bruh. *Sigh* Way to go, Byrd! LC out.

Conor McGregor Won Without Winning

So, the fight actually happened, huh? Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor finally stopped talking and threw hands, huh? Anyway, as expected, Mayweather won, bruh. I mean, anybody who thought the outcome would be different is a damn fool, son. In any case, despite losing the fight, McGregor actually won the night, man. On the real, if we look at three specific factors, we’d all see that McGregor was the real victor on Saturday night. Now, before people start complaining, let me explain, fam.

First, let’s talk about the money, bruh. Keep in mind, this was McGregor’s FIRST professional boxing match. With that being said, not only did he luck up by getting a chance to fight a legend, but he also got a buttload of money in the process. Now, from the purse alone, he’s reportedly going to make about $30 million. In addition, he also has a promotional stake in the fight, which could net him another $100 million. Fam, did I mention that this was his FIRST PROFESSIONAL BOXING MATCH?! Man, this dude might really make nine figures from his first fight! That’s fucking insane, son!

Next, let’s talk about McGregor’s performance, son. Keeping it a buck, he gave Mayweather a little bit of static in those early rounds, man. Like, McGregor actually hit him with a couple of good shots, fam. Ultimately, it wasn’t enough to stop the inevitable, but the fight wasn’t as goofy as I thought it would be, bruh. For God‘s sake, he hit Mayweather with 111 punches, people! Shit, not even Manny Pacquiao touched Mayweather that many times, folks! Granted, he was running from Pacquiao the entire fight, but facts are facts, kid. Frankly, McGregor didn’t suck as much as I expected him to.

Lastly, let’s talk about the fact that McGregor went out on his feet. Ok, yes, the referee did stop the fight in the 10th round, but McGregor didn’t go down, son. I mean, by that point of the fight, Mayweather was slapping him at will, man. Like, he literally knocked snot out of McGregor’s nose, fam. Needless to say, shit was getting bad, bruh. In any case, McGregor still stayed on his feet. He took an undefeated fighter to the championship rounds and managed to lose standing up. Look, people can hate, but that’s a feat in and of itself, folks.

In the end, McGregor got the W by taking an L, man. All I know is, he shit-talked his way into a stupid amount of money, son. Real talk, if having a big mouth could get me that kind of pay day, then I need to up my game, fam. With that being said, Andre Ward‘s a pussy and I could knock him out by the second round. Is that enough for me to get a massive check? No? Ok, well, I’ll keep trying, bruh. LC out.
