The Toronto Raptors Really Needed To Win Game 5

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, last night’s game between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors was one of the wildest games I’ve ever seen, man. I mean, the Raptors were right there, fam. Like, riiiiiight there, bruh. Shit, they were three minutes away from their first NBA Championship and they blew it. All I know is, last night’s loss puts them in a tough situation. Yeah, they’re still leading the series, but now ALL of the pressure is on them to pull this off.

Ok, for those who missed it because they hate themselves, Game 5 was crazy, son. First, the momentum seemed to shift in the Warriors’ favor when Kevin Durant decided to play. Hell, on a suspect calf, Durant tried to save his team from elimination. On top of that, he actually started off hot, man. Listen, he hit a couple of threes and it looked like he might turn the tide of this series. Then, in the second quarter, he went down with an Achilles injury. All I know is, that was the LAST thing that I wanted to see, fam.

At that point, it would’ve been easy to assume that the Warriors would crumble. Instead, they maintained their lead until the fourth quarter. From there, Kawhi Leonard decided that enough was enough. Look, he basically went on a double-digit run by himself, bruh. Real talk, when the Raptors jumped to a 103-97 lead with three minutes left, I thought the game was over, son. However, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson would not be denied, man. Basically, they put the team on their backs and squeaked out an improbable win, fam. Now, the Raptors have to try and win the title back in Oakland.

Now, here’s why I think the Raptors are in trouble. First, they’ve already won two games in Oracle Arena this series. With that being said, to get the ring in the next game, they would have to win ANOTHER game in that place. So, folks want me to believe that the Warriors, the team who’s won three of the last four titles, are going to lose three games at home? Bruh, I highly, HIGHLY doubt that. In addition, if the Raptors do lose Game 6, then they’ll be facing another Game 7 at home. All I can say is, that’s waaaaaay too much pressure on a team who’s never won a championship before. Frankly, they’re in danger of becoming the second team to blow a 3-1 lead in the Finals.

In the end, I think the Raptors missed a golden opportunity, son. Now, I’m not saying that they won’t win it all. Ultimately, they could very well close this thing out on Thursday. But, they’re now facing a fire that they didn’t want. Essentially, the defending champs are staring them in the face and daring them to kill them. By and by, we’ll see if these dudes have the mental fortitude to get it done, man. That is all. LC out.

P.S. That Durant injury is terrible, fam. Ok, yes, I have a history of criticizing him. But, I never wanted to see him go down like that, bruh. Keeping it a buck, it doesn’t matter that I want him on my New York Knicks. The fact of the matter is, when he’s healthy, he’s probably the best player in the world, son. All in all, the league is better when he’s killing shit, man. I just hope that the injury doesn’t permanently effect his career, brethren. Good day.

P.P.S. The Raptors fans ain’t shit for cheering when Durant went down. Like, what kinda loser celebrates an injury? By and by, I believe in karma, fam. The way I see it, that bush league shit is probably why their team lost that game, bruh. Ok, bye.

Tyson Fury Beat Deontay Wilder

So, let me begin this post by saying I hate boxing, son. Actually, I take that back, man. In reality, I just hate boxing judges, fam. Like, I legitimately believe they get A LOT of decisions wrong, bruh. Now, in the case of Deontay Wilder versus Tyson Fury, there’s one particular judge I need to address. With that being said, I honestly pray that Alejandro Rochin is never allowed to call another fight again, brethren.

Ok, for those who hate cool things, a huge boxing match took place on Saturday. To make a long story short, Wilder, the WBC Heavyweight Champion, defended his belt against Fury, the former WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring and Lineal Heavyweight Champion. Anyway, on paper, the fight looked like the classic “boxer versus brawler” prototype. I mean, Fury is the (way) more technically sound fighter while Wilder has insane one-punch power. Moving on, in my mind, there were only two ways this fight could end, son: Wilder by knockout or Fury by decision.

Well, let me say that I was fucking wrong, man. The problem is, I should’ve been right, fam. Shit, the fight went to a decision, and somehow, it ended in a draw. Look, the way I saw it, Fury definitely won that fight, bruh. Ok, yes, Wilder did knock Fury down twice. Side note, how the FUCK did Fury get up in that 12th round, son? For God‘s sake, he looked fucking DEAD, people. All I know is, Tyson Fury is a cotdamn warrior, brethren. Anyway, besides those knockdowns, Wilder only connected on 17% of his punches, folks. Meaning, Fury CONSISTENTLY made him miss. From my vantage point, Fury easily won about 7 or 8 rounds. So, those knockdowns shouldn’t have been the nail in the coffin.

Now, let me be real, son. At first, I thought the decision was a flat-out robbery. However, after looking at the judges scorecards, I only vehemently disagree with Rochin. Listen, Robert Tapper scored the fight 114-112, meaning he believed that Fury won 8 rounds. On the other hand, Phil Edwards scored the fight 113-113, meaning he believed that Fury won 7 rounds. Real talk, I can live with that, son. These scores mean that the knockdowns cost Fury a clear-cut victory. So, Wilder’s crazy power got him out of a jam, man.

However, for whatever reason, Alejandro Rochin scored the fight 115-111 for Wilder. This means that he thought Deontay won 7 rounds. Man, what? What?! What 7 rounds could he possibly have thought that Wilder won? Like, he believed that Wilder won the first 4 rounds. Fam, he didn’t lay a fucking glove on Fury! How can a man win a round if he literally couldn’t hit the other guy? Is Rochin fucking serious, bruh?! For me, that score was just as bad as Adalaide Byrd saying that Canelo Álvarez beat Gennady Golovkin 118-110 in their first fight. Hell, that’s absolute fucking nonsense, son!

In the end, Rochin needs to find a new occupation, man. Ultimately, he shitted on one of the greatest comeback stories, fam. By and by, Fury is a MUCH better fighter than Wilder. Then again, we already knew that, bruh. At the end of the day, Wilder’s power really is the great neutralizer, son. Keeping it a buck, two punches saved him his title, folks. That is all. LC out.

P.S. We all know why this fight ended like this, son. All in all, the powers that be want to see Wilder fight Anthony Joshua, man. Hell, that fight has been teased for years and it might finally go down in April, fam. *Sigh* I get it, but I feel bad for Fury, bruh. Seriously, he won that fucking fight, folks. Good day.

P.P.S. I want to wish Adonis Stevenson a speedy recovery, son. After getting knocked out by Oleksandr Gvozdyk in the 11th round on Saturday, the former WBC Light Heavyweight Champion ended up in the hospital. As of right now, he’s in stable condition. This is great to hear since he was originally in critical condition and in a medically-induced coma. Either way, it’s a terrible situation and I wish him and his family the best. Ok, I’m gone, for real.

Stop The Hypocrisy, Conor McGregor Fans

Look, let me be clear from the beginning, son: Khabib Nurmagomedov was dead wrong for jumping in the crowd after beating Conor McGregor. However, I need ALL McGregor fans to shut the fuck up, man. I mean, the hypocrisy is fucking astounding, fam! Listen, by no means is McGregor a fucking saint, bruh. Frankly, he started shit with the wrong dude and finally had to face the consequences of his actions. All in all, I don’t want to hear shit about how Nurmagomedov needs to be stripped.

Ok, for those who don’t love sports, UFC 229 went down on Saturday night. Now, all around, it was a night of great fights, son. Shit, Derrick Lewis knocked out Alexander Volkov after losing most of the fight, Tony Ferguson beat Anthony Pettis after a fucking WAR and a bunch of other awesome shit. In any case, the showdown between Nurmagomedov and McGregor was poised to be the highlight of the show. Moving on, the fight went exactly the way I thought it would, man: Nurmagomedov mauled McGregor. Hell, after hitting McGregor with copious amounts of ground and pound, Nurmagomedov choked him out in the fourth round.

Now, this is where shit went left, fam. After the fight, Nurmagomedov got into a war of words with Dillon Danis, McGregor’s partner in crime, and literally jumped over the cage to rumble with him. Needless to say, chaos ensued and Nurmagomedov was escorted out of the main area without his Lightweight Championship Belt. All I can say is, it was an ugly scene and Nurmagomedov should’ve done a better job of controlling himself. For God‘s sake, he already proved his point, bruh! Like, he already beat McGregor in convincing fashion. On the real, there was no need for this shit, son.

With all of that being said, I’m sick of people acting like McGregor is innocent in all of this. Keeping it a buck, HE STARTED THIS ENTIRE DEBACLE, MAN! Where was all of this “oh, this is so disgusting” talk when he threw a fucking dolly at a bus carrying Nurmagomedov? From that incident alone, he injured Ray Borg, shook Rose Namajunas to her core and fucked up Michael Chiesa‘s fight. Ok, yes, he did end up in a New York City court, but McGregor was never in jeopardy with the UFC, fam. Fuck, they literally used the dolly incident in their fucking promos for UFC 229!

On top of that, McGregor talked about Nurmagomedov’s religion, his country, his father AND his manager’s son. Real talk, I don’t want to hear none of that “it’s just business” talk, bruh. Yeah, insulting a man is one thing, but disrespecting everything he loves is something completely different, son. All I know is, I would’ve been livid too, man. The fact of the matter is, McGregor tried his usual antics with the wrong dude and ended up on the bad side of an ass whooping.

In the end, Dana White and the UFC better not strip Nurmagomedov of the belt, fam. Ultimately, I know they’re looking for an reason to give Conor back the title, bruh. By and by, McGregor has done too much fuck shit with no consequences, son. At the end of the day, Nurmagomedov should be fined but allowed to keep his title. He beat McGregor fair and square, man. However, knowing White and his usual treachery, he’s going to strip Nurmagomedov and make McGregor and Ferguson fight for the vacant title. Look, if that happens, everyone heard it here first, fam. But, I really hope that doesn’t happen, bruh. Long live The Eagle! LC out.

P.S. I’m also tired of people complaining that Nurmagomedov wrestles too much. Listen, I’ve seen too many “he needs to stop hugging him and fight him like a man” comments. Fam, don’t be mad because Nurmagomedov’s way of fighting is effective. The truth is, McGregor had no answer and was forced to tap. In addition, Nurmagomedov landed the hardest punch of the entire fight. Maybe, just maybe, McGregor needs to learn how to grapple better. He’s been submitted four times now. That is all.
