LeBron James Traded EVERYONE!

Now, look, I don’t actually believe that LeBron James is single-handedly responsible for all of the Cleveland Cavaliers‘s moves before the NBA trade deadline. However; it’s just funnier to phrase it that way, son. With that being said, “The Land” OD’ed yesterday, man. I mean, I knew they were struggling and needed help. But, I never expected them to make so many damn changes in one shot. All in all, they had a BUSY ass day yesterday, fam!

So, let’s recap all of the tomfoolery that went down, bruh. Now, long story short, the Cavs no longer look like the Cavs we’re used to. Isaiah Thomas? Gone. Dwyane Wade? Gone. Derrick Rose? Gone. Iman Shumpert? Gone. Channing Frye? Gone. Jae Crowder? Gone. Lawrence Charles? Gone. Ok, maybe not me, but we all get the picture, son. Basically, the entire roster was sent to either the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, Utah Jazz or Sacramento Kings. In their place, the Cavs got back Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance, Jr., George Hill and Rodney Hood.

Anyway, I’m not surprised that the Cavs made moves before the deadline. However; I’m surprised that they made so many moves, man. Listen, the Cavs sucked, fam. I mean, REALLY sucked, bruh. Keeping it a buck, this season gave me a whole new appreciation for Kyrie Irving. Shit, that man went to the Boston Celtics and made them legit title contenders. On the other hand, he left the Cavs in COMPLETE disarray, son. The way I see it, the Cavs had no chance of making it back to the Finals with their current team. Frankly, it was either do or die, man.

In the end, we’ll see if all of these trades make any damn difference. Ultimately, the Celtics are the team to beat in the East, fam. In any case, I still don’t see anyone beating the Golden State Warriors anyway. By and by, all of this commotion may be for nothing, bruh. At the end of the day, I’ll be watching, son. On the real, I’ve been waiting for the NBA to get more interesting. Hell, we can’t have the same ass teams competing for the chip every year, man. That is all. LC out.

LeBron James Ain’t Going To Golden State

So, I won’t lie, son. I have no proof that LeBron James wouldn’t go to the Golden State Warriors. Frankly, I’m only making this assertion because my mind can’t grasp that concept, man. Like, my brain can’t handle the idea of LeBron making a superteam even more super, fam. Shit, it was bad enough when Kevin Durant went to GS, bruh! All in all, if LeBron actually went to The Bay, we might as well retire the idea of competition. Real talk, no one seems to want to battle with each other anymore.

Ok, so, for those who missed it, some interesting news just hit the NBA. Now, after this season ends, LeBron has the option to become an unrestricted free agent. Meaning, he could go to any team he wants. Apparently, he stated that if the Warriors were willing to free up some cap space for him, he’d entertain a meeting with them. Man, get the FUCK outta here, son! Good Lord, does everybody just want to play with one another now? Hell, the Dubs already have TWO MVP‘s on their team, fam! Why the fuck would they need another one? Give me a fucking break, bruh!

In the end, I completely understand that all of this is just conjecture, son. However; the idea of this alone infuriates me, man. Ultimately, this type of shit is exactly why I’m losing interest in the NBA, fam. At this point, why should I even bother watching any of these games, bruh? The outcomes are always predetermined because players just want to click up instead of duking it out with each other. On the real, I was originally critical of Kylie Irving, but now I’m happy he’s on the Boston Celtics. By and by, his move broke up some of the monotony, folks. *Sigh* I swear, none of these current players have any competitive spirit, people. It’s fucking disgusting. 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.

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.

I Don’t Understand This Kyrie Irving-Isaiah Thomas Deal

So, this post may be a little different than usual, son. Being honest, I’m not really trying to make a point today, man. Frankly, I want someone to explain this Kyrie IrvingIsaiah Thomas trade to me. All I know is, on face value, I don’t understand what the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers are doing. By and by, this upcoming NBA season will be interesting as fuck, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, the Celtics and the Cavs just made a monster trade. As it stands, Irving will go to Boston in exchange for Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets2018 unprotected first-round pick. Now, maybe I’m bugging, but I feel like Boston gave up too many assets for one dude. Yes, Irving is a wizard with the basketball, but is he really worth all the Celtics gave up for him?

Look, I will never, EVER front on Irving’s scoring ability. Real talk, he might be the most unstoppable point guard in the league. That’s right, maybe even deadlier than Stephen Curry, bruh. Listen, there’s literally NO WAY to stop that man from getting buckets, son. He can get to the basket at will AND he shoots above 40% from the three-point line. All in all, the Golden State Warriors may be 2-1 against the Cavs in the Finals, but they’ve NEVER been able to contain Irving.

By comparison, Thomas is also a great scorer. Despite his height, he always gets to the rack and he kills teams with the jumper off of screens. Keeping it a buck, the main knock against him is the fact that he’s a terrible defender. Here’s the thing: so is Irving. So, in my mind, the Celtics and the Cavs are swapping players that yield similar results. Now, is Irving a better player than Thomas? Yes. However; this trade would make more sense to me if there were less players involved.

For me, this trade got weird because of Crowder and the first-round Brooklyn pick. Although Crowder regressed a little last season, he’s still a damn good defender, man. In addition, a team can always benefit from having a first-round pick, son. So, why would Danny Ainge give up those assets for one player? A player who’s benefited from having LeBron James on his side for the last three years? All jokes aside, do the Celtics know exactly what they’re getting with Irving? Are they 100% confident that he can run the show? All I can say is, I’m skeptical as hell, fam.

In the end, anybody is welcome to explain this shit to me, bruh. Ultimately, this trade is a big deal in the Eastern Conference. However; I don’t know if it’s enough to overthrow the LeBron regime, fam. All in all, Irving is going to look pretty stupid if he goes through all of this nonsense and loses to James. In any case, I’m looking forward to the tomfoolery, son. LC out.

What Is Kyrie Irving Doing?

So, I won’t lie, son. I’m confused about all of this Kyrie Irving kerfuffle, man. Like, I truly don’t understand what this man is doing right now. I don’t get why he would want to leave LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Frankly, it better be for personal reasons, fam. If not, this has to rank HIGH on the list of Dumbest Moves In NBA History.

Now, I won’t go into a lot of depth with this story, man. At this point, if people aren’t aware of the chaos in Cleveland right now, then they probably don’t care about basketball. With that being said, I question the motives of Kyrie’s desire to leave. From a basketball standpoint, it makes NO sense to me, fam. I mean, he’s coming off of three straight Finals appearances, where his team actually secured one title in the process. Not to mention, his last shot in Game 7 of the 2016 Finals is one for the ages. All in all, he’s an established winner on this team, son.

In any case, the rampant rumor is that he no longer wants to be in LeBron’s shadow. Apparently, he wants to run his own team and “can’t” fully flourish as a sidechick. Now, there are a few things wrong with that logic, son. First, Kyrie was The Man in Cleveland during his first three seasons in the league. Guess what? The team was fucking turrible, bruh.

Real talk, the year before LeBron came back, the Cavs only won 33 games, man. The very next year, the win total jumped to 53 and the squad went to the Finals. In addition, Kyrie’s stats weren’t drastically different from the previous season, fam. Meaning, a lot of that improvement came as a result of LeBron being on the team. Look, facts are facts, son. It just is what it is, people.

To add to that point, Kyrie is also coming off of his best year, statistically speaking. So, I’m really not understanding what he gains by leaving the organization. Listen, I highly, HIGHLY doubt he’ll get to the Finals by himself. He’ll either have to get past LeBron or the Golden State Warriors. On the real, neither of those scenarios are realistic, folks. It doesn’t matter if he plays for the New York Knicks, San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat or Minnesota Timberwolves. He won’t sniff another Finals by abandoning ship, son.

In the end, Kyrie has to ask himself one question: does he want to win or be The Man? If he wants to win, then he needs to sit his ass down in Cleveland. If he wants to be The Man, I’m pretty sure my Knicks would gladly take him. Shit, I’d wholeheartedly root for him in that situation. However; I know it goes against common sense, man. Ultimately, all of this tomfoolery is making it easier for the Warriors to repeat, son. That is all. LC out.
