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.

What The F*ck Is LaVar Ball Doing?

So, it’s no secret that I’m not a fan of LaVar Ball. Yes, I hear all of the stories about the positivity of seeing such a visible Black father. However; as a Black father myself, I can still acknowledge the fuckery, son. At this point, I don’t see how anyone could even argue that LaVar has his sons’ best interests at heart. Look, the way I see it, he’s turned this entire situation into The LaVar Ball Show. Real talk, I truly believe he’s fucking up his children’s futures, man.

Ok, let’s begin with LiAngelo, fam. By now, we should all know what the deal is here. LiAngelo did some fuck shit in China, robbed a store, got arrested, got released (because of Donald Trump?) and made it back to America. Now, in light of all of the tomfoolery, UCLA decided to suspend LiAngelo, but still keep him on the team. So, how does LaVar react to this? He removes LiAngelo from school because he believes that his son should be playing right away. Shit, is this man serious, bruh?! His fucking son could’ve ended up in a Chinese prison and he’s acting this ungrateful?! Keeping it a buck, LaVar should be thankful that the university even decided to put up with this shit. I mean, LiAngelo did get arrested DURING A SCHOOL TRIP!

Next, let’s talk about LaMelo. Listen, I’ve already talked about how I’m not sold on this kid. His shooting percentage is terrible, his defense is terrible and he showboats too much. On the real, a kid like him needs as much structure as possible. So, what does LaVar do? He takes him out of Chino Hills High School in order to homeschool him for the next two years. *Sigh* Honestly, what the fuck is LaVar doing, son? Does he really care about the development of his son’s skills? He already has enough deficiencies as it is. I really don’t see how this will help him progress as a player.

Finally, let’s talk about Lonzo. Now, in case anyone hasn’t been paying attention, Lonzo has some of the worst shooting percentages in the NBA. As of right now, he’s shooting 31% from the field, 25% from three-point range and 50% from the free throw line. Look, those are horrific numbers for a player who’s supposed to be the Lord and Savior of the Los Angeles Lakers, son. To make matters worse, the Lakers are enforcing a rule that prohibits media from interviewing family and associates of players. Generally speaking, people see this as the “LaVar Ball Rule” because of his penchant for criticizing coaches, officials and owners. Sheesh, way to go, LaVar!

Look, now that I think about it, this is one of LaVar’s main problems. I mean, he really thinks he knows better than EVERYONE. Listen, he pulled LaMelo out of Chino Hills because he thinks he knows better than the coaches. He pulled LiAngelo out of UCLA because he thinks he knows better than the organization. He’s made life difficult for Lonzo because he’s CONSTANTLY shitting on the Lakers staff. Fam, how the HELL is any of this good for his boys? All I know is, LaVar has become a cancer that’s infecting every aspect of the game.

In the end, people may see this post as hate, but I’ve stated nothing but facts here. All I can say is, LaVar Ball is doing a grave injustice to his sons. Ultimately, all he would need to do is fall back a little and let these teams do their jobs, man. Then again, NONE of that is in LaVar’s nature, fam. With that being said, he’s going to kill this ride before it really gets off of the ground, bruh. By and by, IN SPITE of their father, I hope the sons will still find a way to succeed. 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.

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.

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.
