Socrates once said, “A system of morality which is based on relative emotional values is a mere illusion, a thoroughly vulgar conception which has nothing sound in it and nothing true.” Sai Baba, the Indian spiritual master and guru, gave it to us like this, “Do not be misled by what you see around you, or be influenced by what you see. You live in a world which is a playground of illusion, full of false paths, false values and false ideals. But you are not part of that world.” Then Iris Murdoch, the English philosopher, shut the buildin’ down when she spit, “We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.”
Well playas…here we go again! Duns are livin’ in a fantasy world puttin’ together misleadin’ charts to make both Jordan and Kobe look far superior than LeBron and it’s merely my job to find the reality in it! Some clown sent me this chart yesterday with the unmitigated gall to say, “Here’s some food for thought bruh.” However, what boyz don’t realize is that I grew up in the G! The home of the original gangstas and hustlas! So you can’t run game on me and expect to get away with it bruh. I can spot a hustle gettin’ out of the car down the street in a blackout with Glaucoma and sunglasses on pimpin’.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! On the surface this chart looks legit because those numbers are spot on. The chart is dead right! However, it’s flawed. It shows every single one of both Mike and Kobe’s Finals durin’ their careers. That includes the Finals they both played in and won post 30 years old. Why do I bring that up? Because Lebron is only 30 right now.
I’ve been in sales for more than 25 years playboy! I’ve been walkin’ into clients offices and presentin’ data since I graduated from college. Data is my life’s blood. First rule of thumb in presentin’ data: “Never try to pull a hustle on the dun that you’re tryin’ to close.” Why? Because when he figures out that you just hustled him or her you’ll never sell another product to them in your life! And guess what?
They’re gonna call all of their boyz that you would have gotten a referral to see and close and you’ll be finished. Data has to always be on the up and up.
So if we’re gonna look at Finals records and you’re includin’ LeBron in the discussion then you’ve got to compare all three players at LeBron’s age. Why, you foamin’ at the mouth idiot? Because you can’t pull data that doesn’t exist for the one or more of the players that hasn’t lived as long as the other participants. Mike was 36 by the time he’d won all of those games and Kobe was 32!
If LeBron is just now 30 and about to play in a Finals then you can only compare Mike and Kobe at 30 about to play in the Finals. You can’t include data that for all intents and purposes doesn’t exist in their lives because they wouldn’t have been able to play them until they got older. Therefore, when you look at their totals at 30 Mike only has 8 wins because he’d only won 2 championships by the time he was 30 and about to play for his 3rd Finals this week. Kobe has only 12 wins because he’d won 3 championships by the time he was 30 and didn’t win the other two until he was 31 and 32 years old. LeBron has 11 because he’s won the same 2 championships that Mike has won by age 30 about to play in his 3rd Finals this week. But a dun that is tryin’ to run a hustle just to make Mike seem immortal will get away with it on fools that are Mike struck. Those are the cats that are desperate to keep Mike ahead of LeBron at all costs.
What is it about beautiful women and sports that make highly educated men some darn fools? And that’s the edited version. The only reason I jumped on this foolishness of comparin’ Jordan vs. LeBron more than 4 years ago was because Jordan fans love to discredit LeBron and disseminate ignorant charts with hustles written all over it. I thought that it was completely unfair to do to a player that is merely playin’ the game.
I could care less what his name is bruh! He could be Bullwinkle Jones Jr., son of Annie Mae and Bullwinkle Sr., for all I care. I just hate when boyz go to extremes to hate. To sit down and put this and other chart together that includes Mike’s entire career in which he played until he was freakin’ 40 and try to compare it to a dun that is just now 30 is asinine. And I’m not talkin’ about uneducated people bruh. Ninety person of the duns I’m talkin’ about have college degrees and advanced degrees that will look at something and run with it as long as it fits their argument. In my Johnny Cochran voice, “If it doesn’t fit you must acquit.”
Now if Jordan is the G.O.A.T. why is it necessary to make up stats or to add stats that essentialy don’t exist yet in the comparison to prove that he is? I’m just askin’? Both Kobe and LeBron have more Finals wins that Mike by age 30! What are we talkin’ about. Stop goin’ to extremes to make Jordan seem immortal. Stop it! You sound crazy!
So the next time you see one of these charts filled with foolish data, call a boy out. I don’t care if it’s a LeBron fan or a Kobe fan tryin’ to run game. Call that fool to the carpet and stop me when I start lyin’!
