The Jay Graves Report

Pat Riley sounds crazy sayin’ Shaq was a bigger acquisition than LeBron! “Bruh”

“Look at the dun bruh! He hatin’ and can’t help himself.”

Alana Stewart, the actress, once said, “Bitterness and resentment only hurt one person, and it’s not the person we’re resenting – it’s us.” Ja Rule gave it to us like this, “I feel like unforgiveness, bitterness and resentment, it blocks the flows of God’s blessings in life.” Then Carrie Fisher, the actress, put it where the goats could get it when she spit, “Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”

Well playas…ole Pat Riley is drinkin’ that poison and pourin’ some out for all the dead homies! Only problem is, he’s lookin’ like a straight up hater in the process! This dun recently told South Florida Sun Sentinel that, “Shaq’s acquisition was bigger than any acquisition that we ever made, including the Big Three.” He goes on to say, “But it was O’Neal — not James, not Bosh, not Wade, not Mourning — who gave the Heat the biggest piece of the puzzle. Zo was big, but getting Shaquille changed everything for our franchise.”

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Pat Riley sounds like the ex-girl friend that’s still stalkin’ a boy’z Facebook page talkin’ crazy. Sharin’ pictures of all the cats she used to date but the dun that she really broke her heart. He dumped her and now she’s playa hates him at every turn.

Pat sounds like a complete hater tellin’ boyz out of his OWN mouth that Shaq was a bigger catch than LeBron!! Let’s just deal on the surface real quick before we peal the onion bruh. Shaq was a MONSTER and he led them to an NBA championship in 2006! They won a joint and that was it. On the other hand, LeBron came in and took these boyz to four straight Finals,  winnin’ two straight makin’ the Miami Heat the most hated/popular team in America after he took his talents to South Beach.

What does that mean for the franchise and the NBA bruh? More eyes on the game! Not only did LeBron bring more attention to the Miami Heat in terms of diehard basketball fans but he exposed the Heat to the casual fan all over the world. I cover the NBA and when the Heat showed up it was like the Beatles were in town. The Shaq Heat wasn’t doin’ that bruh!!! The only reason boyz are gettin’ monster contracts right now in the NBA is because of LeBron.

Oh I’m lyin’? In that dun’s first year with the Heat accordin’ to first-round games in 2011 on ABC, ESPN and TNT were watched by an average of 4.15 million people, up from fewer than 3.2 million the year before. Now in 2007, the first round averaged fewer than 2.7 million viewers. To that point of the playoffs, TNT had drawn the highest average rating EVER for games on cable. The network’s 23 games averaged a 2.7 rating – representin’ the percentage of American homes with televisions watchin’ this foolishness – easily beatin’ the previous high of 2.3 in 2009. Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals in 2012 was the most watched NBA game in cable television history at the time. Why, because all of all these boyz hatin’ on LeBron! Fast forward to 2016! Boyz are gettin’ ridiculous contract because the television revenues are though the roof.

So that was free marketin’ and promotion for the Heat!! So you already know that ticket sales went through the roof etc. Let’s look at the franchise value durin’ the time they both played in Miami. When Shaq showed up in 2004 the franchise was worth $236 million when he left in 2008 it was worth $418 million. When LeBron rolled into South Beach the joint was worth $425 million and when he dipped it was worth a whoppin’ $770 million!! So you do the math playboy.

In simple fingers math he took them to 4 Finals vs 1! Won 2 titles vs 1! Increased revenues $352 million vs $182 million and put more eye balls on the Miami Heat than anybody in the history of the franchise!! So who was the bigger deal bruh? Not hatin’ on Shaq playa just keepin’ a boy honest! Give Shaq his props but don’t start talkin’ crazy because LeBron broke up with you. Stop me when I start lyin’!
