Ayesha Curry Can’t Have It Both Ways

So, let me keep it real, son. I’m going to try my best to utilize my analytical side and not my “I’m a husband who’d want to drop kick somebody” side. Frankly, I’m not here to bash Ayesha Curry, man. On the real, I’m just trying to make sense of her nonsensical-ness, fam. All in all, she can’t want attention from men AND get mad at the attention that Steph Curry gets.

Ok, for those who missed it, Mrs. Curry sat down with Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris for an episode of Red Table Talk. Now, although a variety of topics were touched on during the discussion, a few tidbits caught people’s attention. First, Curry talked about how she hates the reactions that Steph gets from women. I mean, that’s completely understandable, bruh. Like, what spouse wants to see their significant other ogled by outsiders?

Now, if that’s where the discussion ended, then all would be well, son. Instead, Curry divulged a little bit more information. To be more specific, she chose to illuminate some of her own insecurities. In any case, she stated that she wishes she got more “male attention.” Apparently, while Steph has been dodging all of these unwanted eyes, Ayesha wishes more men looked at her in that way. In fact, due to the lack of gazing stares, she began to wonder if something was wrong with her.

Look, I’m not an idiot, man. Real talk, everyone likes to know that people find them attractive. However, that shit needs to stop mattering when you’re fucking married. On top of that, she can’t get mad at women for wanting Steph when she desires the same type of interest. Furthermore, I need some of the ladies out there to stop caping for her, fam. Hell, if someone’s husband told them “damn, I wish these ladies looked my way more,” they’d be fucking pissed, bruh. All I know is, Steph and Ayesha need to be enough for Steph and Ayesha.

In the end, Ayesha needs to let that shit go, son. Ultimately, as long as she has Steph and Steph has her, outside influences shouldn’t matter, man. In addition, this is the last thing homie needs right now, fam. By and by, he’s having a rough time in the playoffs, bruh. Shit, I wouldn’t put it past an opponent to throw this in his face on the court, folks. At the end of the day, we need to be careful what we wish for, brethren. She might get that attention she wants and fuck up her marriage. Knock it off, Ayesha. That is all. LC out.

Russell Westbrook Is Trid-ash

So, let me begin this post by saying that I used to vehemently defend Russell Westbrook. I always gave him credit for his hustle, passion and otherworldly athleticism. However, enough is enough, son. The fact is, he’s an outrageously inefficient player, man. On the real, the triple doubles have fooled a lot of us, fam. All I know is, the Oklahoma City Thunder will never win shit if Westbrook continues to play in this manner.

Now, for those who are ready to roast me, let’s look at some statistics, bruh. Ok, yes, he’s averaged a triple double for the last three seasons. All in all, he’s the first player to ever do that in NBA history. So, is that impressive? Yes. But, it doesn’t tell the whole story, son. Listen, over the last two years, he’s averaged 43% shooting from the field and 29% from 3-point range. That’s fucking atrocious, man. The problem is, his performances in the postseason are even worse, fam.

Look, Westbrook has played 18 playoff games since him and Kevin Durant squandered a 3-1 lead against the Golden State Warriors. During that stretch, the Thunder have gone 4-14. To make matters worse, Westbrook has shot 38% from the field and 30% from 3-point range. Frankly, those numbers are gross, bruh. But, no one seems to notice because he’s also averaged 29 PPG, 10 RPG and 9 APG. So, he’s close to his triple double average, but his team is losing and his shooting is disrespectfully bad. All I can say is, that’s not a coincidence, folks.

The way I see it, this last series against the Portland Trail Blazers proved that triple doubles are meaningless, son. Shit, in the last game when Damian Lillard stole their soul, Westbrook had a triple double. He also shot 11-31 from the field. Man, he took 11 more shots than Paul George who was shooting 70% that night. Like, that’s just poor basketball IQ, fam. Listen, a bad shooter was having a bad night and he still wouldn’t stop chucking the ball. That’s a fucking problem, bruh. Hell, he had games like that all series, people. In Game 2, he was one rebound away from another triple double, but he went 5-20 from the field. In Game 4, he went 5-21 on his shots. That’s three games where he had more shot attempts than points. So, remind me again why the triple doubles matter, brethren.

In the end, I’m sick of the bullshit, son. Ultimately, Westbrook will never win anything if he continues to play this way. By and by, I crucified Kevin Durant for joining the Warriors, but not for leaving Westbrook. At the end of the day, I understood why he had to get away from him, man. Keeping it a buck, Russell Westbrook just doesn’t play smart basketball, fam. It is what it is. Maybe now he’ll stop shooting so many damn threes. Probably not, though. That is all. LC out.

What The F*ck, Boogie Cousins?!

Man, what the fuck is going on out here, son? Like, is competition an antiquated concept? I mean, what’s the point of watching the NBA if EVERY superstar just decides to play together? All I know is, free agency has officially jumped the shark, fam. Keeping it a buck, DeMarcus Cousins signing with the Golden State Warriors is one of the most ridiculous deals I’ve ever seen, bruh. All in all, I may need to bow out of watching league games, folks.

Ok, for those who missed it, Cousins just one-upped LeBron James in the “How To Break Social Media” game. Apparently, after not receiving any offers from other teams, because of his fucked up Achilles, Cousins decided to call the Warriors. From there, the two sides worked out a one-year deal that would bring Cousins to The Bay for $5.3 million. So, if we’re keeping count, the Warriors now have FIVE players who have been selected to an All-NBA Team. Shit, at this point, should these other teams even show up to play next season?

Look, here’s my issue with all of this, son. On the real, it seems as if players no longer want to compete against each other. Ok, Cousins did nothing wrong, according to the rules, but shit, what happened to rivalries? What happened to players going at one another, man? Hell, everyone just wants to stack the deck now and gang up on undermanned teams. Honestly, all of this shit is corny, fam. All I can say is, Cousins went from wanting to beat the shit out of Kevin Durant to joining his team. *Sigh* It’s fucking ridiculous, bruh!

Keeping it a buck, I blame LeBron and the Boston Celtics for all of this new age fuckery, son. Listen, this era began when Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen teamed up. Now, as the story goes, that Celtics team gave James headaches, which caused him to join the Miami Heat with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. From there, the floodgates were opened, man. Years later, Durant joins the Warriors and now this Boogie shit. Frankly, these free agency deals are nothing more than the culmination of an issue that’s been brewing for almost a decade, fam.

In the end, fuuuuuuuuuck, bruh! *Sigh* How can I even watch basketball next season, son? Ultimately, we KNOW how it’s all going to end, man. By and by, the Warriors were going to win another title without Cousins. So, it’s a foregone conclusion that they’re going to three-peat, fam. At the end of the day, let me get a contract too, Warriors. Look, the cartilage in my right knee is trash, but my jumper is still pure, folks. That is all. LC out.

Don’t Tell Me You’re A Lakers Fan Now

So, he really did it, huh? LeBron James really signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, huh? Shit, after all of the theories and all of the speculation, he really moved to the Western Conference, huh? All in all, my least favorite part of being a basketball aficionado is about to go into overdrive, son: dealing with bandwagon fans. All I know is, I don’t want to hear ANY of these new motherfuckers try to convince me that they’re Lakers fans now, man.

Look, I may be wrong, but I feel like James is responsible for this new era of fandom. Like, instead of being fans of teams, people have become fans of players. Because of this, whatever team their favorite player is on, that’s the team these people root for. Hell, in James’s case, I’ve watched folks be Cleveland Cavaliers fans, then Miami Heat fans and back to Cavs fans. Real talk, they don’t know ANYTHING about these teams other than the fact that James was on them. In any case, despite the reality that it’ll irritate the SHIT out of me, I’m already preparing myself for these brand new Lakers “fans.”

In the end, the next NBA season is about to be WILD, fam! Ultimately, it looks like I’ll finally get my wish of seeing new teams in the Finals, bruh. All I can say is, James’s run of consecutive Finals appearances is over, son. I mean, there’s NO WAY he’s getting past the Golden State Warriors, man. Seriously, he has NO chance in the 9 Circles of Hell, fam.

As of right now, I’m picking Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and the Warriors to face Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics in the Finals. By and by, we’ll see how this Lakers experiment will work for James. The way I see it, he’s waiting for Kawhi Leonard to join him next year. For now, he’ll just have to put up with the shenanigans of Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma. That is all. LC out.

What The F*ck Was JR Smith Thinking?!

Man, last night’s game was CRAZY, son! On the real, game one of this year’s NBA Finals had one of the wildest finishes I’ve ever seen, man. All I know is, after all of the shenanigans, there’s only one question to ask, fam: what the FUCK was JR Smith thinking, bruh?! I mean, cotdamn, people! I can’t remember the last time I’ve witnessed such a lack of court awareness, folks. All in all, Smith, along with the referees, might’ve cost the Cleveland Cavaliers their ONLY shot at beating the Golden State Warriors.

Now, before I continue, I have to talk about the officiating, son. Look, I’m not one of those dudes who likes to blame the refs for how a game turned out, man. However, there were a couple of calls that ABSOLUTELY contributed to the Cavs’s loss, fam. First, there was the overturned charge on Kevin Durant in the fourth quarter. Listen, LeBron James was CLEARLY outside of the restricted area and KD barged right into him, bruh. Frankly, they originally got the call right when they called it on KD. But, they overturned it and it led to free throws for the Dubs. So, instead of the Cavs being up by two with the ball, it became a tied game, people. *Sigh*

Also, there was another time where George Hill legally slapped the ball out of KD’s hands. But, the refs called it a foul. Once again, this blunder led to free points for the Warriors. But, we can talk about that later, son. Anyway, let’s touch on how Smith fucked his own team, man. Now, with the Cavs being down 107-106 in the final minute, Hill got fouled and went to the free throw line. He made the first shot to tie the game. Then, he missed the second shot and Smith got the rebound right under the basket. Now, did Smith put up a layup? No. Did he give the ball to an open Hill? No. Did he give the ball to James? No. Instead, this fucking guy ran the clock out because he thought the Cavs were in the lead. Wait, what? WHAT?! Hell fucking nah, fam!

Listen, that type of fuckery is UNACCEPTABLE for a professional basketball player, bruh! Seriously, it’s his job to keep track of the score and keep track of the clock, bruh. The Cavs had a golden opportunity to win the game in regulation, but Smith squandered it, son. From there, the Cavs got their asses kicked in overtime and wasted a legendary 51-point performance from James. Keeping it a buck, the embedded picture above is exactly why James will probably leave Cleveland after the season, man. All I can say is, the organization better enjoy James’s greatness while they still can, fam.

In the end, Smith fucked up, bruh. Hill fucked up by missing that second free throw. Ultimately, I don’t know what else people want James to do, son. By and by, he does EVERYTHING in his power to put his team in a position to win, man. At the end of the day, SOMEBODY else is going to have to show up, fam. Honestly, that was the beauty of Kyrie Irving‘s game, folks. Shit, that dude ALWAYS showed up to play, people. At this point, a 1-8 3-point shooting performance from Kevin Love isn’t going to do it. Missing crucial free throws isn’t going to do it. Losing track of the damn score isn’t going to do it. *Sigh* I hope James has made his peace with a 3-6 Finals record, brethren. Hell, he can’t stop it now. That is all. LC out.

I Want The Cavaliers & The Warriors To Lose

Look, I know what everyone is thinking, son. I mean, based on the title, it may seem like I’m hating, man. But, before people try to take my head off, let me explain why I want the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors to lose. Basically, as a lifelong basketball fan, I’m getting bored with the NBA, fam. Year after year, the same fucking teams go the Finals, bruh. All in all, I need some new shit to happen to keep my interest, folks.

Now, I won’t lie, son. I’ve actually felt this way for a little while, man. Listen, for the last seven years, it was a given that LeBron James and company were going to win the East. For the last few years, it was a given that Stephen Curry and company were going to win the West. From there, barring any random occurrences (like Draymond Green getting suspended in the 2016 Finals), it was a given that the Dubs were going to beat the Cavs. So, what does a dude like me have to look forward to, fam? On the real, we’re all just watching the same damn script, bruh. There’s no drama, no suspense and no thrill, people.

Listen, let me tell everybody how serious I am about wanting change. Now, I’m a New York dude through and through. Meaning, I hate ALL Boston teams with an undying passion. However, I’m so tired of the same matchups that I actually want the Celtics to beat the Cavs, son. Shit, does anyone know what that wish does to my soul, man? I’m actually rooting for a fucking team that I despise, fam. THAT’S how much I want things to be shaken up, bruh. All I know is, I’m going to have to repent to Yankees Jesus, folks.

In the end, my wish probably won’t come true, son. Ultimately, the Cavaliers and the Warriors will probably meet again in the Finals, man. Yes, I know that the Cavs just got trounced by the Celtics in Game 1. But, they’re going to have to beat LeBron three more times, fam. All I can say is, that’s a tall order for a young team, bruh. In addition, I don’t believe in the Houston Rockets‘s ability to beat GS, people. By and by, they’re going to have to show and prove before I believe the hype. In any case, I’ll see everyone in the Finals for part four of LeBron versus Steph and part three of LeBron versus Kevin Durant. LC out.

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.
