Kobe Bryant Still Didn’t Flinch

So, let me begin this post by saying that I’m not a Kobe Bryant fan. As a lifelong supporter/victim of the New York Knicks organization, I am forbidden to praise anything that he does, son. Regardless of that fact, I still have the ability to be objective, man. With that being said, Kobe Bryant still didn’t flinch in front of Matt Barnes, fam. All I know is, these new camera angles ain’t prove shit, bruh. It is what it is and it was what it was.

Ok, for those who are unaware, it’s been a longstanding legend that Kobe didn’t flinch when Barnes pump-faked the basketball in front of his face. Originally, based on the initial camera angle, it looked like Barnes did this millimeters away from Kobe. In any case, this incident has been used by Kobe fans to assert his thuggery, son. Side note, where was all that moxie when Chris Childs hit Kobe with the two-piece/no biscuit? I thought so. Anyway, as of yesterday, a new vantage point came out that challenged our view of the situation. Apparently, Kobe wasn’t standing directly in front of Barnes. In fact, he was slightly off to Barnes’ right side.

Now, I don’t need a reason to hate on Kobe, man. But, really, fam? Really? Did this new angle actually debunk the entire story? No, bruh. No it didn’t. Look, even with Kobe off to the side, Barnes still placed the ball inches away from his face. Real talk, the move was still close enough to get a reaction out of Kobe, son. The fact of the matter is, Kobe didn’t bite, folks. He still looked at Barnes like a peon who wasn’t worthy to be rocking an NBA jersey. All in all, I still see the video the same way, brethren.

In the end, let’s find other reasons to hate on Kobe, son. Shit, let’s hate on him for his four airballs against the Utah Jazz. Let’s hate on him for snitching on Shaquille O’Neal. Hell, let’s hate on him for taking 50 shots to score 60 points in his final game. However, we can’t take this from him, man. At the end of the day, he didn’t flinch, bruh. 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.
