Richard Dawkins, the English ethologist, once said, “Let us try to teach generosity and altruism, because we are born selfish.” William Cowper, the 18th century English poet, broke it down like this, “Glory, built on selfish principles, is shame and guilt.” Then Khalil Gibran, the Lebanese-American poet and writer, put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.”
Well playas…Chris Bosh is too selfish to seek other than himself that’s for sure. On Tuesday this dun released yet another video on LeBron’s Uninterrupted platform talkin’ crazy again about still tryin’ to play basketball. Now unless you’ve been under a rock for the past two NBA seasons, his seasons have been cut short due to blood clots. When the Miami Heat reported to trainin’ camp a few weeks ago ole boy failed the physical. The Heat still technically have him on the roster but have no plans to fool with him though. Now keep in mind that Miami still owe’s this dun more than $76 million on the next 3 years GUARANTEED! For all of you simple minded individuals, that means whether he plays or not. But he’s still campaignin’ to keep playin’ by puttin’ out statements like this on video.:
“I want my children to know that Daddy was a fighter and he just didn’t give up very easily.” Then he tells a boy, “What I would say to the people who just see the money and kind of see my situation and say, ‘Hey, just walk away’ — I get it. I totally get it. I understand you. I hear you. But I’m not really thinking about money. I’m just thinking about where my heart is. I love the NBA. I love playing basketball every day for a living.” He goes on to say that he believes basketball is “just what I’ve been placed here to do.” He says that his attempt to keep playin’ should serve as a reminder to boyz that givin’ up on a goal shouldn’t be done lightly. WHAT!!!?
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Where is this done from bruh? Mars? He has a medical condition that will not allow him to continue to play! That’s called havin’ to retire due to health related issues. That’s not called givin’ up. I’m quite sure his kids and everybody watchin’ this foolishness play out will understand that it makes sense to go somewhere and sit yo butt down than to run out there and die tryin’ to prove a point.
And what is this dun talkin’ about when he’s sayin’ that he doesn’t want to give up on his goal? He’s already accomplished his goal! Is he mad? Like outta his freakin’ mind?!! He’s accomplished his goal 10 times over and he STILL owes God change!!! He grew up in inner city Dallas and went to Dallas Public Schools and earned a scholarship (FREE EDUCATION) to play ball at Georgia Tech! He got drafted in the first round of the NBA at 4th overall to Toronto and made more money than he EVER imagined comin’ out of freakin’ Dallas.
He’d accomplished or should I say overachieved on the goal even before he played with D.Wade and LeBron. Then the dun got drug to 4 straight Finals in Miami even when he didn’t play well in at least to of those joints. He won two championships for cryin’ out loud!! Then LeBron did him a solid and dipped back to Cleveland leavin’ Miami desperate to find a somewhat young superstar for them to hitch their wagon to because at the time D. Wade looked like his knees were done. And guess who they OVERPAID to fill that void. His butt!! They literally GAVE him a 5 year deal worth $118 million GUARANTEED!!!
Now Chris, explain to me what goal you’re tryin’ to reach or not tryin’ to give up on? Because I’m confused bruh! If the goal was to get out of the hood you did that. If you’re goal was to get a scholarship you did that. If the goal was to play basketball for a livin’ you did that. If the goal was to win a championship you did that twice! If the goal was to get rich or die tryin’ you did that already and you don’t have to die tryin’. So again, playboy what are you tryin’ to teach your kids? That you’re selfish and would rather die tryin’ to prove to YOURSELF that you can still play basketball than bein’ an active father to them? Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
