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.

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.

I’m Down With The New NBA All-Star Game

So, I won’t lie, son. When I first heard about the changes to the NBA All-Star Game, I was ready to hate, man. I mean, it’s the law of inertia, fam. People like me don’t like change. In any case, the more I thought about it, the more I got onboard, bruh. With that being said, I’m hyped to see this season’s game! The way I see it, the 2018 contest has the potential to either be legendary or tragic. Either way, I’ll be there, folks!

Now, for those who missed it, major changes were made to the ASG. Apparently, the entire concept of East versus West has been eradicated. Instead, two captains will be chosen and they get to pick anyone from the starters and reserves lists. Essentially, the NBA is about to have a big ass pickup game, son! All in all, how could this possibly be a bad thing, man? Imagine Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving on the same squad disrespecting everybody’s ankles. Imagine LeBron James and Kevin Durant on the same team throwing alleys to each other. Fam, this shit has the potential to be incredible, bruh!

In the end, I don’t even know what else to say, son. Look, I think the news speaks for itself, man. Now, of course, the outcome remains to be seen. Who knows, this could end up being a terrible idea, fam. However; I’m super interested to see who ends up playing together and how the game turns out. Ultimately, I’ll be watching, bruh. I’ll definitely be watching. 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.
