The Back Hand (Why Lance is the scapegoat but Bird, Frank & the Pacers know better)

"Ain't this some....!
Robert Anthony, the professional wrestler, once said, “When you blame others, you give up your power to change.” J. Michael Straczynski, the famous writer and producer, gave it to us like this, “People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being, and not enough energy putting themselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with their lives.” Then Arnold H. Glasow, the famous businessman, hit boyz in the dome with, “A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.”

After the Indiana Pacers finally went down in flames like I’ve been tellin’ boyz that they would for months because of the two headed green elephant standin’ in the room with his freakin’ pants down fartin’ and belchin’. But now everybody and their momma around this piece wants to blame Lance Stephenson because of his antics in games 5 and 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! For months I’ve been tellin’ you boyz that the Pacers wouldn’t get past Miami because they turn the freakin’ ball over too much and because ole dull Roy Hibbert is subject not to get out of the car every night. They were winnin' games durin’ the regular season turnin’ that joint over 18,19, 20 times a game and still comin’ out on top. I told you that the Heat was the best transition team in the league and that you couldn’t turn it over against them.

Roy didn’t show up how many times durin’ the freakin’ playoffs bruh? This dun is 7’2” 290lbs. and recorded multiple games without buckets or rebounds and you’re blamin’ Lance for irritatin’ LeBron to death? Are you kiddin’ me?

If it wasn’t for him the Pacers don’t win 56 games, they don’t make it to a Game 6 situation in the Eastern Conference Finals. Why? Because he’s the only cat on the team that brought his gonads into the buildin’ EVERY night! The rest of these cats with the exception of David West would leave their joints in the trunk and then come into the buildin’!

Frank Vogel’s got the nerve to be disappointed in Lance when he’s the dun that continued to stick with Roy even though he wouldn’t show up for work, not just once, but for months. How many folks in the real world can pull up to work every night and just sit in the freakin’ car listenin’ to some Luther with their feet hangin’ out of the window and not get reprimanded or straight up fired?

Paul George has got the audacity to throw Lance under the bus when this dun created distraction after distraction off of the court with his personal life and then had in my Grinch that stole Christmas voice, “The unmitigated gall” to be inconsistent on the court. He’ll put up 31 tonight and then 7 tomorrow. Are you kiddin’ me?

When Lance got off of his “Big Wheel” every night that dun was gonna give you 12 to 15 points, 8 or 9 rebounds and 7 or 8 assists EVERY night playboy! He led the freakin’ the league in triple doubles for cryin’ out loud! Now he’s gonna trip on you from time to time but you gotta take the good with the bad pimpin’! At least he’s gonna show up EVERY night and he’s not on the internet takin’ pictures of himself and doin’ anything crazy!

Let’s talk about the duns runnin’ the team too! Who was the only cat in the media that told you in February that Larry Bird fell for the banana in the tailpipe when he signed Big Perm, I mean Big Worm? Talk to me playboy? They brought in Andrew Bynum and completely destroyed the team’s chemistry. Why? Because nobody wanted him because everybody knew that he was a head case. How do I know that boyz didn't want him? Because the day they signed Bynum we asked Frank how he felt about the pick up and he said, "That's why players play, coaches coach and the front office makes decisions." Real hustlas pay attention to the details bruh. In other words, I didn't have crap to do with that. And that's the edited version.

Yeah, I know that he had knee issues but all you gotta do is look at his history with cats and it’ll tell you everything that you need to know.

LA got rid of him and then he sat in Philly for an entire season before gettin’ shipped to Cleveland. Then Cleveland who can’t buy a date broke up with him only to send him to Chicago where they only dated him for two days bruh!

It’s like the fool that decides Halle Berry is the one. She’s fine as frog hair playboy but I wouldn’t go anywhere near that broad because she can’t keep a man. Why? I don’t know why but she’s the common denominator. If she’s that fine and nobody wants her then she’s the problem playa.

So who was the genius that said that it made good sense to pick up Bynum and go out with him around this piece? Larry “freakin’” Bird that’s who! I saw that hustle comin’ a mile away.

They paid this dun $1 million dollars to play from February to April and then possibly in the playoffs and he only played in like three games and none in the playoffs. Now how many boyz in the locker room did you piss off with that move? Anybody makin’ close a million and guess what pimpin’, Lance Stephenson was makin’ $870,000. So you brought a cat in for two months and paid him more bread than you’re startin’ guard and you didn’t think that was gonna be a problem?

Here’s my diehard Pacer fan bein’ irrational, “Jay you’re a fool! He’s a professional! What they paid Bynum is none of his business! He should just do his freakin’ job!” Really playboy? Let me ask you, if they brought some dun into you’re office that had been fired everywhere that he’s worked over the past two or three years and paid him more than you to only work part-time and to top it off he’s only gonna work for two months. Oh and by the way, you’re the most productive person at your position in the country. Not just at your office but the entire country! You’re leadin’ the freakin’ industry in triple-double sales and they’re gonna pay this clown more money than you. I’m not soundin’ like a fool now am I?

I didn’t mention that ole Larry got rid of Danny Granger in the middle of the season for a dud firecracker and a wet smoke bomb. Nobody wants to talk about that either. I completely understand that Granger was makin’ way too much bread to be comin’ off of the bench but you got rid of locker room leadership for two cats that gave you absolutely nothin’!

But it’s easy to blame Lance because he’s that dude that nobody likes. Was he way out of line for pimp slappin’ Norris Cole the other night? Absolutely! Should the other eight players on the floor have just beatin’ the brakes off of him for bein’ an idiot? Absolutely! Should they have held him up and let Norris back hand him? You darn right! And that’s the edited version.

Was he out of line for aggravatin’ LeBron to death, gettin’ him into foul trouble and completely takin’ him out of Game 5? Absolutely not! If it wasn’t for him there wouldn’t have been a Game 6.

So before you jump on the “Blame Lance Bandwagon” make sure that you holla at the rest of these duns too. Because I’m gonna ride with #BornReady ‘til the wheels fall off because at least I know he’s got his gonads in his hands and he’s gonna produce EVERY night. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Holla At Ya Boy!
