Boomerang (How Andrew Bynum is already hustlin' the Pacers)

"Yeah I'll be there bruh!
 I'm just trying to figure out how I wanna wear my hair."
As I was walking into Bankers Life Fieldhouse  on Monday night I heard the ticket scalpers arguing about dedication. Vince Lombardi said, “The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.” Then Willie Mays threw his tickets at a boy and said, “In order to excel, you must be completely dedicated to your chosen sport. You must also be prepared to work hard and be willing to accept constructive criticism. Without one-hundred percent dedication, you won’t be able to do this.”

The one thing that sticks out about why the Indiana Pacers have been able to be so good this year is its team chemistry. There are no egos in the locker room and boyz are all on the same page. It doesn’t matter who’s hot on any particular night. They'll give up the rock to win the game.

On Monday night Danny Granger was feelin’ it so boyz obliged as he led the Pacers past the dull Orlando Magic 98-79 with 16 points. Paul George and the Don Dada Mr. #BornReady himself brought 15 each to the table and ole Lance even brought dessert with 12 rebounds. It was his 15th double-double of the season.

The reason that I bring all of this up is to show boyz how dedicated these cats are to one another. Then I ask the question, “Where’s ole dull Andrew Bynum?” Now he was signed on Saturday and the first thing the media asked Frank Vogel was, “When is ole boy going to join the team?” The answer given was, “Well he’s back in Cleveland getting his affairs in order and he’ll join us next week.”

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Cats have been getting traded and acquired for years in this league and it’s pretty much a seamless process. Duns get picked up and on the same night I’ve seen cats sitting on the bench and in some cases I’ve seen them even playing.

So what affairs does this dun have in Cleveland that needs to be tied up bruh? Cleveland ran him out of town with a garbage bag and Chicago didn’t even let him unpack. So what’s in Cleveland? Like my man Willie said earlier, “You must be completely dedicated to your chosen sport!” If this is what you do for a living and it costs money to live then you show up for work. It’s just that simple.

They've got agents and assistants for tying up loose ends bruh! You want me to believe that ole Andrew is in Cleveland packing up a U-Haul in the Flats? C’mon playa!

Like I told you in the hot joint entitled "Big Worm" the other day. Everybody is comfortable in the ride and now ole Larry shoves this dude through the passenger side window into the gear shift. These boyz have played on Saturday night (Nets), Monday night (Magic), will play in Atlanta tonight (Hawks) and ole boy still isn’t with the team? That’s a problem playboy!

On some real talk, we all saw Trent Richardson get traded to the Colts this past season from Cleveland and that dun got off of the plane in a bath towel and his hair was still wet. He didn’t even get dressed after practice when he found out that they traded him. He was in such a rush to get out of there that he didn’t even go to the crib to pack. Ole boy was like, “Y’all can have all of my stuff!” And that the edited version bruh! And you want me to believe that Bynum is still in Cleveland taking care of business? He ain’t even the business type. Have you seen his choice in hair styles and oils? One minute he's rockin' a fade then he's got an old school fro/ S-Curl/Soul Glo/Sexual Chocolate/James Brown/Al Sharpton type joint! But you want me to believe that he's tying up loose ends? C’mon bruh!

The fact that he’s taking his sweet time to show up in Indy is a problem. The knock on him has always been his lack of dedication and focus. Not his talent. You can’t put a boy in the ride with a bunch of cats on a road trip that don’t mind sharing the wheel that doesn’t want to drive at all.

Clowns on Twitter the other day were saying that I shouldn’t question Larry Bird’s knowledge of the game. Well I’m not questioning his knowledge of the game. He’s forgotten more about the game than I will ever know. However, I’m questioning his ability to spot a hustle. See, I grew up with con artists and thieves playboy. I can spot a hustle a mile away. Bynum doesn’t love the game of basketball! He just loves what the game of basketball gives him. So in my Halle Berry Boomerang voice, “Love should have brought yo “A” home last night!” If he loved the game of basketball he'd still be in LA homeboy! Stop me when I start lyin’!

Holla At Ya Boy!
