Jordan Fans Pretend Like Detroit Never Existed

So, before I begin, let me say that I anticipate some hate coming my way. However, I pride myself on being objective, son. In any case, while I still believe that Michael Jordan is the best basketball player of all time, his legend has taken on an unrealistic sheen. I mean, anytime there’s a debate between him and LeBron James, people bring up James’ failures. But, they never do the same for Jordan. The fact of the matter is, Jordan’s career wasn’t as perfect as folks like to pretend. All in all, the Detroit Pistons can attest to that.

Ok, let’s get straight to the shits, man. Look, anytime someone wants to disparage James, they bring up his 3-6 NBA Finals record. Or, they’ll say something like “Jordan would never get swept in the Finals.” Frankly, they pretend like the playoffs begin and end in the Finals. Now, Jordan may have been perfect in the Finals, but it took him a long ass time to get there. In fact, at one point in time, there was a narrative that a scoring champion like him couldn’t get it done. Shit, most of that narrative was due to the fact that the Pistons beat his ass every single year. Side bar, that team actually swept him before, too. The way I see it, no one should bring up James and the Golden State Warriors but neglect Jordan and the Pistons.

Fam, before Jordan won his first title in 1991, he lost to the Pistons three years in a row. Let me say that again: Michael Jordan lost to the same Detroit Pistons team THREE YEARS IN A ROW! Hell, imagine if that shit happened in the social media era. Jordan would have to deal with a lot more than just the “Crying Face” meme. Now, none of that takes away from his greatness or everything that he was able to accomplish. But, Jordan stans act like that shit never happened, bruh. Hell, they pretend like he was just a model of perfection and forget about the years that he struggled. The truth is, those struggles are what pushed him to be better. So, getting smacked around by the Pistons elevated his game, son.

In the end, I’m not here to restart the Jordan vs. James debate. Ultimately, I still think that Jordan is the G.O.A.T. But, I’m glad that The Last Dance talked about those years. By and by, acknowledging that a legend has faults doesn’t make them any less of a legend. At the end of the day, the same goes for LeBron James. So, instead of acting like a bunch of bitches, why don’t we appreciate all of the awesome shit that we’ve seen these players do. Ok? Great. That is all. LC out.

Scottie Pippen Got Royally Screwed

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, the basketball fan in me is ECSTATIC that The Last Dance is finally airing on ESPN. I mean, as a lifelong New York Knicks fan, I have a weird relationship with Michael Jordan‘s legacy. On one hand, he’s my favorite player ever. On the other hand, he’s almost solely responsible for my childhood anguish. Like, he broke my team’s heart EVERY FUCKING SEASON! In any case, the first two episodes of the documentary shine a light on another important topic: Scottie Pippen getting royally fucked by Chicago Bulls management.

Ok, before I continue, let me say that Pippen deserves some of the blame here. Now, apparently, everyone told him not to sign that 7-year/$18 million deal. Everyone told him that Jerry Krause, the general manager of the Bulls, wouldn’t renegotiate his contract later. So, with all of that being said, Pippen shot himself in the foot with that deal. However, Krause and company are still assholes for not upping Pippen’s cut, man. At a certain point, the sum they were paying him was fucking disrespectful, fam.

Look, by the time the 1997-98 season came around, Pippen was the 122nd highest-paid player in the NBA. In addition, he was 6th highest-paid player on the Bulls. Keep in mind, he was either 2nd or 1st in every statistical category for that team. Despite all of that, he was getting paid less than Jordan, Toni Kukoč, Ron Harper, Dennis Rodman AND Luc Longley. Now, MJ, I get it. The rest of them muhfuckas, hell nah, son. All I can say is, I completely understand why Pippen wasn’t so hyped to get back with the team, man. Hell, I wouldn’t break my back either for a squad that didn’t value me.

In the end, I can’t fucking wait to watch the rest of this documentary, fam. Ultimately, this is the era that I came up in. By and by, I want to see how real ESPN is going to keep it. Are they really going to talk about Jordan’s gambling? Are they going to show him punching Steve Kerr in the face? Either way, I’m ready to go, fam. All in all, I just fucking love basketball, bruh. That is all. LC out.

UFC 245 Was NUTS!

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I don’t even know where to start, man. The fact is, UFC 245 was fucking nuts, fam! Now, I know that the fight between Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington was worth the price of admission. But, the rest of the card was also crazy, bruh. All in all, I was thoroughly entertained by Saturday night’s chaos (pun intended).

Ok, as folks can probably assume, I’m here to recap Saturday’s shenanigans. Anyway, let’s begin with the bout between Geoff Neal and Mike Perry. Now, to be frank, I’m a big Mike Perry fan, son. I mean, he doesn’t always win his matches, but he’s always fucking exciting, man. In addition, he’s normally durable as shit. Well, Neal put a stop to all of that shit, fam. All I can say is, he hit Perry with a head kick that ended the night quick, bruh. The fact is, Neal is going to be a problem at Welterweight, people.

Next, we had Petr Yan versus Urijah Faber. All I know is, that fight went exactly the way that I thought it would, son. Seriously, Faber had no business fucking with a dangerous dude like Yan, man. In any case, another head kick put another fighter down, fam. Shit was brutal, brethren. From there, José Aldo got robbed against Marlon Moraes. Look, Aldo kept chasing Moraes around because Moraes refused to engage, bruh. The way I see it, you can’t backpedal for an entire fight and earn a decision, folks.

After that, the G.O.A.T. Amanda Nunes took on Germaine de Randamie for the Bantamweight title. Now, if I’m being honest, I thought that Nunes would steamroll de Randamie, son. Ok, yes, it’s been six years since Nunes first beat her. But, based on Nunes’ last couple of years, I thought this would be light work, man. The truth is, the bout was a lot closer than the scorecards would suggest, fam. Like, I know that Nunes won four rounds, but it wasn’t easy, bruh. Shit, there were a few times where Nunes was in real danger, folks. From submission attempts to upkicks to well-placed right hands, de Randamie held her own against the champ. However, she couldn’t stop a takedown to save her life, people. Honestly, that’s the area where Nunes dominated.

Moving on, we got to see Max Holloway scrap with Alexander Volkanovski for the Featherweight strap. Keeping it a buck, I had no idea how this fight would go, son. Yes, Holloway has been a dominant champion, but Volkanovski is a motherfucker, man. With all of that being said, Volkanovski kept Holloway at bay with copious amounts of leg kicks. Real talk, Holloway couldn’t really put his offense together because his legs were getting brutalized, fam. To me, Holloway won Round 4 and maaaaybe Round 2. Other than that, Volkanovski did more than enough to dethrone the champ, bruh. From my vantage point, it was a brilliant strategy, folks.

Now, let’s get to the main event, son. *Wooooo* I’ve been waiting for this shit for a while, man. Truth be told, I didn’t have a clue on how Usman versus Covington would play out, fam. Like, they’re both dominating wrestlers with relentless pressure. Hell, I thought that the winner would be determined by who got tired first. In any case, I didn’t see this fight turning into a straight standup battle. For nearly five rounds, both men went back-and-forth with no wrestling, minimal kicks and a TON of punches to the face.

When it comes to their styles, it was basically power against volume. Usman had the power and Covington had the volume. When it was all said and done, the power won out, bruh. In Round 3, Usman broke Covington’s jaw. In Round 5, Usman knocked him down twice before finishing him. Despite a respectable effort, Covington couldn’t keep taking those hits to the face, son. Regardless, I was fucking happy to see Covington go down, man.

Look, before I continue, I want to address the MAGA crowd that loves Covington. Listen, I guess it’s only right that they subscribe to “fake news,” fam. Shit, on social media, I’m hearing cats cry about an “early stoppage” and that Covington would’ve won a decision. Now, factually speaking, going into Round 5, the three judges had it 3-1 Usman, 3-1 Covington and 2-2 even. On top of that, based on the two knockdowns alone, Usman was winning the fifth round. So, even without the knockout, Covington would’ve lost a split decision. Side bar, anybody who thought that Covington won three rounds is a fucking joke, bruh. That’s literally nonsense, son. Anyway, Usman saved everyone the trouble and put the clown on his ass.

In the end, I’m glad that I gave ESPN my $59.99. Ultimately, damn near all of the fights were entertaining as shit, man. By and by, we’ll probably get a Usman/Covington rematch down the line. For now, I’m just glad to see the dumbass squirm, fam. Viva la UFC! That is all. LC out.

P.S. There’s something truly disheartening to see Candace Owens, a whole Black woman, call Usman the “Nigerian cry baby” in Covington’s Instagram comments. *Sigh* I won’t even expound further, son. I’ll just leave that there. Good day.

P.P.S. I wonder if Donald Trump will return Covington’s calls now that he lost. Probably not, right? Ha!

Is This Anthony Joshua & Deontay Wilder Fight Happening?!

So, this fight may happen, son. Shit, the bout between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder may actually happen, man. All I know is, these dudes better not be bullshitting the fans, fam. On the real, if the news is accurate and Wilder has agreed to Joshua’s terms, then I am fucking HYPED, bruh! Hell, THIS is the fight that boxing fans want to see, people! All in all, September can’t come soon enough, folks!

Ok, for those who missed it, Wilder’s co-manager, Shelly Finkel, told ESPN that Wilder has agreed to the offer by Joshua and his manager, Eddie Hearn. Now, although the contract hasn’t been signed yet, it seems as if both sides are ready to go, son. Apparently, the fight will take place in the United Kingdom, Joshua’s home turf. In addition, they’re aiming to have the fight in September. But, that wholly depends on whether or not Gennady Golovkin gets back in the ring with Canelo Álvarez. Side note, I’m not that interested in a rematch between GGG and Canelo, man. In my eyes, GGG won the first fight and now I’m not sure if Canelo is a dirty fighter or not. So, fuck it, fam.

In any case, the table is set for Joshua and Wilder to get down, bruh. Man, we may really have an undisputed heavyweight champion before the year is over, son. Now, I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m excited as fuck, fam! All I can say is, Joshua better not do something stupid like fight Alexander Povetkin first. Listen, nobody wants to see that shit, folks. We want Joshua versus Wilder, plain and simple.

In the end, Finkel, Al Haymon and Matchroom Boxing better get this shit finalized, son. Ultimately, the boxing world needs a showdown of this magnitude, man. By and by, the business aspect of boxing has a way of ruining great fights before they even happen. At the end of the day, let’s just hope that this isn’t one of those situations, fam. Anyway, let’s get ready to rumble! LC out.

P.S. I completely forgot to mention that the potential deal between the fighters is a two-fight deal. Meaning, the first fight would be in the UK and the rematch would be in the United States. I mean, what else needs to be said, bruh? Let’s make this shit happen! That is all.

Guillermo Rigondeaux Played Himself

Man, what the fuck did I watch on Saturday night, son? Like, what kinda tomfoolery did I witness in this Vasyl Lomachenko and Guillermo Rigondeaux fight, fam? Real talk, that match was so ridiculous that I want my money back, bruh. The problem is, this wasn’t even a Pay-Per-View event, folks. In any case, the fight was so stupid, that I still feel like I’m owed money, people. All in all, I’m thoroughly, THOROUGHLY disappointed with a fight that I was so excited to see.

Ok, let me explain why I’m so damn mad, son. Listen, on paper, this fight was supposed to be the fight to end all fights, man. I mean, just take a gander at the participants, fam. Look, for the first time in boxing history, two two-time Olympic gold medalists were going to face off against each other. On top of that, they had a combined amateur record of 885-14 and combined professional record of 26-1. Needless to say, boxing nerds like me were HYPED, bruh!

Now, yes, some people were a little concerned about the size different between Loma and Rigo. Frankly, Rigo is a shrimp compared to Loma, son. Shit, we’re talking about a three-inch height advantage and eight pound weight advantage, man. Listen, to the casual person, the weight difference might not seem like a lot. However; when it comes to boxing, that shit has a HUGE impact on the fight, fam. In any case, I wasn’t that pressed about it because I had a high regard for Rigo’s skill.

With all of that being said, the fight was an absolute dud, son. Keeping it a buck, Loma just made Rigo look stupid, man. He hit Rigo whenever he wanted and Rigo couldn’t land a fucking punch, fam. Look, the shit was so lopsided that Loma landed more punches in the fourth round alone than Rigo landed in the entire fight. Now, after getting thoroughly outclassed for six rounds, Rigo didn’t even bother coming out of his corner for the seventh round. Basically, after all of the hoopla around this fight, Rigo fucking quit, bruh.

In the aftermath, Rigo blamed a hand injury for why he couldn’t continue. Now, there are several issues with this claim, son. First, he didn’t even fucking hit Loma, man! So, how the FUCK could he injure his hand?! Second, a TON of other fighters have thugged it out through worst predicaments, fam. Hell, just the other week, Miguel Cotto battled Sadam Ali with a torn bicep, bruh. With that being said, I ain’t tryna hear shit about Rigo’s hand, folks.

In the end, Rigondeaux disgraced himself and tarnished his legacy, son. Ultimately, he had no answers for Lomachenko, man. By and by, all Rigo did was get punched in the face and then try to hold Loma. All I know is, for someone of Rigo’s pedigree, it was a pretty pathetic showing, fam. *Sigh* So much for a legendary fight, bruh. LC out.

P.S. Tevin Farmer was robbed in his fight against Kenichi Ogawa, son. Now, this is EXACTLY why I hate decisions, man! Shit, judges can be the absolute WORST, fam! On the real, Farmer should be the IBF champion right now. I mean, there was NO WAY he lost that fight, bruh! *Sigh* Saturday night was just a bad night for boxing, people. That is all.

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.

Sammy Sosa Looks BONKERS!

Son! Fam! Bruh! What?! Huh?! Dude, what the entire FUCK is going on around here?! Seriously, who the hell is the pink-faced mammal in the photo above?! Now, people are telling me that it’s Sammy Sosa, but I refuse to believe that, son. Like, I’ve always known about his skin-bleaching fetish, but this is preposterous, man! All jokes aside, Sosa has surpassed Michael Jackson in terms of skin-changing fuckery.

Now, shit got weird when Sosa sat down with ESPN to talk about this year’s Home Run Derby. Needless to say, once we all saw his face, we stopped giving a fuck about what he was saying. Son, what in Baby Jesus‘ name did this man do to himself?! Shit, what part of the game is being lavender, son? What part of the game is looking like a batch of cotton candy, man? Listen, I like to match my clothes, but I didn’t think my skin color had to be part of the equation, fam. All in all, this man looks fucking NUTS, bruh!

On the real, I knew Sosa had an affinity for bleaching, but I never thought he’d take it this far. Keeping it a buck, the dude used to be my complexion, son. Now, he looks like a fucking Starburst, man. It’s like he went into Home Depot and said “I want to look like the paint in my daughter’s room.” All I know is, I literally can’t believe what I’m witnessing, fam.

Moving on, this type of tomfoolery is why people like Kodak Black need to be called out on their fuckery, man. This Sosa nonsense is a PRIME example of what some folks do when they hate their skin color, son. So, no, we can’t just let derogatory comments about complexion slide, fam. All in all, when I look at Sosa, I see a man who legitimately hates himself. Frankly, it’s disgraceful to watch because I used to be a huge fan of this guy, steroids and all.

In the end, I’m blown away by all of this, son. Like, this fool is actually pink, man! I swear, the truth is always stranger than fiction, fam. Ultimately, I don’t see where Sosa can go from here. I mean, it’s not like he can turn back the hands of time, bruh. Sadly, I don’t think he wants to either. *Sigh* LC out.

Get Jason Whitlock The F*ck Outta Here!

Ok, to be clear, I don’t like Jason Whitlock, son. On the real, in addition to his preposterous social commentary, his sports analysis is also pretty trash. However; I’m not here to talk about some basketball “hot take” right now. In actuality, Whitlock needs to get flamed for the fuck shit he said about LeBron James and racism. Ultimately, these networks need to stop letting their “token” Black guys speak for the community. All I know is, Jason Whitlock doesn’t speak for me or anyone who thinks like me.

Now, for anyone who missed it, LeBron made the news the other day for something outside of ball. Apparently, some piece of shit racist thought it was a good idea to write “nigger” on his Los Angeles home. Thankfully, neither he or his family were present. Anyway, after this ordeal, LeBron was very candid with the media about the ramifications of this act. He spoke about how racism will always be a problem in America, regardless of an individual’s monetary status. In any case, with all of that being said, Jason Whitlock found a way to disagree.

So, in response to LeBron’s comments, Whitlock asserted that LeBron doesn’t face racism because he’s rich. Apparently, when a minority adds a couple of zeroes to their net worth, prejudice and bigotry just magically disappear. I guess Whitlock is not familiar with the story of Dr. Dre being falsely accused of brandishing a gun and getting handcuffed in his own driveway. I guess he’s not familiar with the story of Wyclef Jean getting handcuffed in a case of mistaken identity. I guess he’s not familiar with the story of Just Blaze getting pulled over by police and questioned about the “legitimacy” of his vehicle. Nah, I guess rich Black people never have any problems at all, son.

Listen, I’m not going to be the one to sit here and pretend like rich people deal with the same issues as the disenfranchised. However; material possessions don’t change people’s viewpoints. If a White person hates minorities, a bank account statement is not going to change that. In fact, writing “nigger” on LeBron’s house is a reminder that his money doesn’t matter. In the heart of the person who wrote it, LeBron is still considered “less than.” So, cut the fucking shit, Whitlock!

In the end, Black people like Jason Whitlock make me sick. If he doesn’t want to engage in racial issues, then just shut the fuck up, man! Clearly, we don’t need him on our journey towards equality. By and by, like LaVar Ball said, Whitlock shouldn’t comment on “anything but snacks.” Now, I’ll just sit back and let the “body shaming” brigade come and get me for that last comment. LC out.

Damn, Tiger! In High School You Were The Man, Tiger!

So, to begin, I’ll admit that I don’t know a lot about this situation, man. All I know is, Tiger Woods just caught a DUI charge. In addition, his mugshot looks CRAZY, son! Like, that’s the same dude who won 14 major championships? Good Lord, man, this guy’s fall from grace has been one of the most outlandish things to witness. All in all, whenever ESPN decides to pull the trigger, Tiger’s 30 for 30 documentary is going to be EPIC, fam!

Now, before I continue, let me get one thing out of the way: Tiger Woods is the greatest golfer of all time. Yes, I’m fully aware of who Jack Nicklaus is. I’m fully aware of who Arnold Palmer is. Also, I’m fully aware of Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Sam Snead too. With all of that being said, NO ONE ever dominated golf like Tiger did in his prime. I mean, it’s not even close, son. Shit, if anyone doesn’t believe me, just go back and revisit his 12 stroke win at the 1997 Masters Tournament. Keeping it a buck, Tiger was essentially the golf version of a “create-a-player,” fam.

In any case, by now, I’m sure we all know what happened to Tiger. Ever since his rampant infidelity became a news story in 2009, he’s never been the same, bruh. Look, even by the numbers, he won his last major in 2008. Frankly, Tiger’s golf game was immaculate when he was smashing any woman with a pulse. Ok, yes, injuries have also played a big role in his decline. However; let’s be real, he won that 2008 U.S. Open title on a fucked up leg, son. Listen, all I’m saying is, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that he lost his glow when he lost his hoes, man.

In the end, we now live in a time where Tiger is an afterthought. Moving on, when it comes to his recent arrest, he claims that he had an “unexpected reaction” to prescription medicine. Now, that may very well be true, but he looks crazy nonetheless, son. Ultimately, it’s a damn shame that the G.O.A.T. is nothing more than a punchline now. By and by, he just needs to pack up his clubs and retire, fam. Look, the run is over, Tiger. It’s over, man. Just try to bow out with some form of dignity, bruh. 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.
