Uncle!! (How the Pacers just let the Hawks get off into their pockets without a fight)

"All you gotta do is say it and I'll stop bruh!"
As I pulled into the parking garage at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Sunday evening the cats working in the lot were arguing about boyz giving up. Aimee Mullins, the famous track and field athlete and actress, said, “Giving up is conceding that things will not get better, and that is just not true. Ups and downs are a constant in life, and I’ve been belted into that roller coaster a thousand times.” Daniel Pipes, the famous historian and writer, shouted, “Diplomacy in general does not resolve conflicts. Wars end not due to peace processes, but due to one side giving up.” Marissa Mayer, the CEO of Yahoo, put the lot full sign out with, “I have a theory that burnout is about resentment. And you beat it by knowing what it is you’re giving up that makes you resentful.”

Hopefully the Indiana Pacers resent gettin’ the brakes beat off of them again at the crib 107-88 and this time by the Atlanta Hawks. These boyz have lost 7 out of their last 9 games heading into the final two weeks of the season. The Hawks came in still fighting to stay alive in the playoff race sitting in the 8th spot in the East.

It was almost like a boy that cut his pinky toe that was bleeding profusely and he decided to stick his foot in the water in the middle of the ocean. The sharks had a feeding frenzy and all that was left was that dun’s fake gold necklace. Sharks are particular about eating fake jewelry playboy always remember that. So if you wanna survive in the ocean or the ghetto just wear some fake jewelry.

From the word go the Hawks put hands on the Pacers and boyz just seemed to give up. According to Frank Vogel his team seemed to be worn down and especially his 7’2” center Roy Hibbert. So when that dun started the game with 9 minutes of PT with zero points, assists, blocks, rebounds and 1 turnover ole Frank decided that he needed a rest. Now to be fair to Frank, he did say that even before the game he’d decided to rest ole boy because he has played in every game of the season which was rare for him.

Paul George said it best though, “It was a tough cover for Roy. To have a five-man who can stretch the floor, put the ball on the ground and shoot perimeter shots” as he was referring to Atlanta’s Pero Antic made more sense to me.

Now let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Whether it was a matchup problem or ole boy just being worn out there was no excuse for him sitting on the bench pouting like a kid in a car seat on a road trip to Vegas. He didn’t play the entire second half and he if you gave him a test on what happened during that second half he’d fail every question. He was over there swinging his feet, blowing bubbles and throwing juice boxes the entire half.

OK, I get it that you wanna play but if Frank says that you need to chill out then at least be supportive of the duns out there gettin’ the brakes beat off of them. They’re already gettin’ blasted bruh! They don’t need to come to the sideline and see you with your head down picking crumbs out of the seat. They at least need an "atta boy or a keep hustlin’" or something!

It was so bad that at one point Shelvin Mack was out there looking like Meadow Lark Lemon! I swore I saw that dun threw a bucket of confetti in the crowd as he was going up for a layup. Jeff Teague was out there looking like freakin’ LeBron on these boyz as he unloaded 25.

The Pacers scored 23 points in the first half bruh! That’s a franchise low with the previous low of 27 points coming against the Clippers in 2004.

You can’t put this one on Roy because he wasn’t in the fight. Now he didn't get out of the ride but this time it was because Frank put the child locks on and made him stay in the car. But nobody else fought for theirs bruh.

It was like being back in the hood all over again and seeing the G’s roll up on a nerd or just some cat that they knew wouldn’t fight for his as they would just stick their hands in his pockets. They would take everything he had, lunch money, pencils, erasers and even his belt. Then they’d turn him upside down and take his sneakers. That was the Hawks bruh. They put it on them until they finally said Uncle.

By the time they got back on the bus they had pocket change for the rest of the road trip and enough sneakers to last them until training camp next year. I realize that the Pacers are 53-25 and sitting only one game behind the Philistine and Co. for the top seed in the East. So anybody with half a brain would take that if they’re an Indiana fan. However, the way these cats are playing right now they won’t get out of the first round of the playoffs.

It would be shameful to put that much work into this season and not maximize its potential. They’ve got four games left including a date with the Philistine on this Friday in South Beach. I just hope that they don’t wear anything that’s too revealing! Stop me when I start lyin’!

Holla At Ya Boy!
