Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.” Jane Austen, the English novelist, gave it to us like this, “Selfishness must always be forgiven you know, because there is no hope of a cure.” Then John Bytheway, a professor at BYU, broke it down like a playa at a pimp’ convention wearin’ some Detroit gators when he spit, “Our world is drowning in a sea of self-centeredness. You can make yourself quite unique right away by leaving this ocean of selfishness and choosing to be curious about other people.”
Well playas…one of the greatest players to EVER lace them up played his final game on Wednesday night and boyz came out of the woodwork to holler at him. Before the Black Mamba took the floor for his last game in which he put up 60 on these boyz, I might add, all kind of cats said “Wassup” and gave him love. However, the VERY cat that he patterned his game after was noticeably absent from the video tributes. Michael Jeffery Jordan was MIA like clockwork.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! When boyz were hollerin’ at Kobe before the game, that’s the VERY dun that I was lookin’ for because the Mamba basically cloned his game after him! Heck, when the dun came into the league he was walkin’ like him, talkin’ like him and even chewing gum like him. So why in THEE world wouldn’t Jordan, at the very least, holler at a boy on his last night? Because like I’ve been tellin’ you boyz for years, Mike is all about Mike ONLY!
He’s about Jordan and Jordan only bruh! And please don’t tell me that maybe they didn’t holler Mike’s way because Mike is Mike!!! He could walked in and taken over the mic if he wanted to. Stop it! You sound crazy!!!
Check this out playa, Lamar Odom was in a freakin’ coma a few months ago and he got up, put his freakin’ clothes on and hollered at a boy!
Here’s my diehard defender of everything Jordan talkin’ crazy butt naked foamin’ at the mouth, “Man they only had former Lakers and teammates givin’ video tributes. And plus, they probably didn’t even holler at Mike because he’s an owner now and they were only hollerin’ at players.”
What!!!? You sound like a fool bruh! Melo and KG didn’t play with that dun!! And what does bein’ an owner have to do with jack squat? And that’s the edited version! For boyz to show up on a video tribute to one of the greatest players of all-time and for the very cat that he patterned his game after early on not to holler was a complete foul ball! No way around it. Stop makin’ excuses for Jordan bein’ Jordan.
If they were sellin’ Jordan brand shoes or gear he would have been there with bells on. But since it was about somebody else he didn’t have the time.
Congrats Mamba on a stellar career and please stop me when I start lyin’!
