Don’t Ever Disrespect Isaiah Thomas

Look, if we’re keeping it a buck here, some people are just stupid, son. Like, this world is just full of moronic folks, man. For example, the scallywags who’ve been burning Isaiah Thomas jerseys. I mean, do they not understand that he was traded? It’s not like he had much say in the matter, fam. Now, if fools want to be mad at anyone, they should be mad at Danny Ainge. All in all, this trade proved that there is absolutely NO loyalty in sports, bruh. Teams aren’t loyal to players, so why should players be loyal to teams?

To be clear, I’m not going to talk about the trade between the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Shit, I did that the other day, bruh. Instead, there are a couple of other points I want to touch on. First, anyone who burns a Thomas jersey is a fucking idiot. Listen, even if he voluntarily left the team, Celtics fans don’t have the jurisdiction to diss him. Fam, just look at what he accomplished last season. He was third overall in scoring, first in fourth quarter scoring AND led Boston to the best record in the Eastern Conference. Oh, did I mention that he’s only 5’9″?!

In addition, despite losing his sister in a tragic car crash, he STILL played in the next playoff game. Lastly, he lost a fucking tooth for this team, son. Good Lord, I don’t think he could’ve sacrificed more for one organization, man. Now, with all of that being said, Ainge and company STILL traded him when they got the opportunity. My God, it’s a cold world out here, man. On the real, I don’t understand why fans expect players to be loyal. These teams don’t give a fuckity-fuck about the players, fam. Hell, I never judged Kevin Durant for leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder. I only judged him for joining the Golden State Warriors, the team that beat him.

In any case, to make matters worse, Chris Broussard just threw MORE dirt on Thomas’ name. So, according to his “sources,” Broussard claimed that Thomas didn’t have a good relationship with his teammates. Apparently, this was part of the reason why he was swapped for Kyrie Irving. Moving on, when other Celtics players called shenanigans, Broussard tried to backtrack and say “oh, this is just what I heard from execs.” Man, if this dude doesn’t get the fuck outta here, bruh! What part of the game is kicking a man while he’s down, fam? By and by, all of this shit is corny, people.

In the end, it’s no secret why people like LeBron James have come to Thomas’ defense. Ultimately, he got a raw deal, son. Now, I’m pretty sure he’ll be successful in Cleveland, but this trade is just fucked up on principle. All I know is, no one has the right to say anything foul about Isaiah Thomas. Real talk, his game has earned him his respect, son. That is all. LC out.

Is This Mayweather-McGregor Fight Happening Or Nah?

So, when it comes to this whole Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor situation, I have a ton of questions, son. First, why does McGregor think he can beat Mayweather? Second, why does McGregor think he even deserves the chance to fight Mayweather? Third, why would Mayweather come out of retirement for this? Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a huge Mayweather fan, son. The way I see it, he ducked that Manny Pacquiao fight until Pacman was past his prime. However; Mayweather is still a legend of the highest order. With that being said, why is this potential fight between him and McGregor even a thing? We all know the UFC star will ultimately get washed.

Now, I never took the idea of this fight seriously until yesterday. ESPN‘s Stephen A. Smith said he spoke with Mayweather and was told that a deal to make this fight happen was “very close.” I took that entire report with a HUGE grain of salt because Smith is also the same dude who said Kevin Durant was going to the Los Angeles Lakers. Then, he got pissed when Durant said he was full of shit. Look, seeing how Durant is lighting it up with the Golden State Warriors this season, yes, Smith was indeed full of shit, son. In any case, after hearing the news, I started to wonder about how much money each fighter was offered to make this work. I mean, let’s be real, son. Neither McGregor nor UFC head honcho Dana White have touched Mayweather-type figures, man.

Moving on, just when the rumor mill hit a fever pitch, Mayweather swooped in to kill the noise. He took to Instagram and dispelled any notion of coming out of retirement to fight McGregor. He refuted the news that there was any deal and maintained that if he ever wanted to fight again, he’d be the first one to tell the public. So, Mayweather’s response begs the question: where the fuck is Stephen A. Smith getting his facts from, son? Is this dude just making shit up for the sake of keeping a job? *Sigh* Him and Chris Broussard are the worst, man. They stay coming out of left field with false information, bruh. At this point, ESPN needs to vet their personnel more. Their anchors and former anchors always roll through with baseless hot takes.

In the end, I doubt this fight is happening, son. Nor should it happen. Like I said, I’m not on Team Mayweather, but reality is reality, man. McGregor hasn’t accomplished enough to square up with Mayweather. Ultimately, McGregor’s hype is reaching Ronda Rousey-levels. Yeah, we all saw how that ended, bruh. LC out.
