I’ve been discountin’ Gonzaga (37-1) all Tournament long because they were the Top Seed in the West Regional with only one loss. I was lookin’ at them with the stink eye because they play in the West Coast Conference against a bunch of nobodies. Duns like BYU, Loyola Marymount, Pepperdine, Pacific, Saint Mary’s etc. They should have been undefeated playin’ against that foolishness bruh.

However, every step of the way in the NCAA Tournament they proved that they were the real deal!! On Saturday afternoon in Glendale, Arizona they showed up with their shirts off with a chip on their shoulders and went to work on South Carolina 77-73 to advance to Monday night’s National Championship Game verses the Top Seed from the South Regional, North Carolina!

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! South Carolina didn’t just show up and give a boy their sneakers and jewelry. Gonzaga had to fight for it. However, the Zags came in with a dun that wasn’t takin’ no for an answer. Nigel Williams-Goss was like an old school gangsta in the G on some Debo-type foolishness that would roll up on a boy and just reach his hand off in a cat’s pockets while sayin’, “What cha got on my drink homie!”

Ole boy scored 23 points every way they could be scored. He was takin’ cats to the rack, knockin’ down the mid-range and shootin’ the three ball too. Then his bigs got goin’ and it was a hard tow for South Carolina. Gonzaga had two 7-footers in the buildin’ and they didn’t just ride the bus into the joint on GP. Senior Przemek Karnowski and freshman Zach Collins jumped out of the ride and played both ends of the floor combinin’ for 27 points and 18 rebounds! Collins finished with a career high six blocks on a boy too. NUTS!!!

Now the Bulldogs from Gonzaga are playin’ in their first ever national title game and they deserve every bit of it playa. I was hatin’ and didn’t think that they were as good as they were when this thing kicked off two weeks ago. But I’ve got to eat crow this mornin’ and give these boyz their props! Stand Up Gonzaga! You’re the real deal!!! Stop me when I stop lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) The G: noun – Gary, Indiana

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
